How do I confirm that the 2998 Photodiode Array Detector is still within specification? - WKB7196

Article number: 7196

OBJECTIVE or GOAL

Verify wavelength calibration.

ENVIRONMENT

  • 2998 Photodiode Array Detector, PDA
  • Empower all versions
  • 2998 ICS v1.30

PROCEDURE

  1. Prepare flow cell and flush with an appropriate intermediate solvent before switching to 100% methanol.

  2. From the console, select 2998 PDA Detector from the system tree.

  3. Select Maintain > Verify Calibration > Start.

  4. When complete, the results pane appears.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The 2998 PDA detector automatically runs a series of internal diagnostic tests upon start-up. Wavelength verification is one of the tests run, so if both LEDs are green, the diagnostics passed.
