iQ Series – ePort versus iPort
Volume V, Edition 4
Unlike iPort software for our iSeries gas analyzers, the Thermo Scientific iQ Series of gas analyzers utilize ePort software which allows remote access to the analyzer with a PC. The ePort control mirrors the same GUI look and feel as the instrument touchscreen providing a speedy and familiar operational experience. Multiple units can be viewed using the VNC Viewer that works behind ePort. Other features include an automatic data download wizard, diagnostic data downloading & firmware upgrading. ePort also makes it easy to find and connect to any instrument within your network.
The Thermo Scientific iSeries Gas analyzers utilize the iPort software to upgrade software, download data from the instrument and control the analyzer. Slower ethernet speeds resulted in a delayed response when controlling the instrument via the iPort software. The speed of the quad-core processor of the iQ Series virtually eliminates all lag when controlling the instrument via the ePort software.
Another reason why iQ gives you more control over your data and your day!
