TEST DRIVING THE REBORN DRX499 – ICONNMR INTERFACE – A FIRST LOOK

HAPPY NEW YEAR !  (ALMOST)

Welcome to the completely Refurbished and Newborn DRX499 !

The following pages should give a visual feel for how the new interface looks like, when you visit the system. 

But, do not worry ! Under the hood, it is the same old Topspin NMR software that is doing all the work for you.

It is actually more intuitive, user friendly and easy to operate, with a few mouse clicks and minimal amount of typing.

In fact,  the only typing you will need to do are just the following :

  • A new Data Set Name
  • Title, if you prefer

That’s it ! All the operations are under the flow of the software from here on, until the Spectrum is processed and displayed.

Ok, let’s dive in !

There are two monitors on the desk.  The LEFT one is the familiar TOPSPIN Display interface.  Using the RIGHT one, you interact with the spectrometer for almost ALL the tasks : 

 

A PICTORIAL FLOW CHART OF EVENTS FOLLOW FROM HERE ON.  I will provide captions and comments where it is useful :


Clicking on this, opens the following User Selection Dialog Box


You can either select your UWNetid by mouse click or type it in.



This palette appears. There are three mandatory steps before actual acquisition starts.


This is a branch point. You can inject new sample, continue with the one in the magnet, or quit the session to go back to the Welcome screen.


If you choose to inject new sample, this dialog appears.


This DATASET creation dialog appears automatically ! No need to click on the FileName button above.

You might want to change either the Exp number OR the Dataset Name. Either way, it will be treated as a fresh experiment. If you want to overwrite the existing Dataset, proceed with the same name and Exp no.


Clicking this opens Solvent/Experiment selection dialog:

Lock solvent and Parameter set are next.


                       

 

You can enter a Title for the Exp. no. if you wish :


You are ready to Start Acquisition NOW !


AFTER THIS, EVERYTHING IS AUTOMATIC.  YOU SIT BACK AND RELAX UNTIL THE FID IS COLLECTED AND PROCESSED FOR  YOU !    YOU CAN WATCH THE ACTION ON THE LEFT MONITOR THROUGH THE TOPSPIN WINDOW.  ICONNMR GIVES YOU THE FOLLOWING SCREEN ON RIGHT MONITOR TO SHOW YOU THE PROGRESS.


END OF RUN :  You can either eject the sample at this point and put a new one (OR) continue with the same to perform other experiments.  Either way, the interface prompts you for the next step:

 

YOU MUST DO THIS TO ALLOW NEXT USER TO LOGIN !

INSERT THE DECOY SAMPLE NOW, CLICK OK TO RETURN TO LOGIN SCREEN

 


ALL DONE !
