This Information Applies To: Agilent 7000C/7000D/7010B triple quadrupole GC/MS
The GC firmware does not support LVDS communications with the 7000C/7000D/7010B GC/TQ, so you must use the Web User Interface (WUI) to configure the MS detector network settings.
Steps to Follow
Press the MS On/Off switch to start the instrument.
From the controlling PC Web browser, type the current instrument IP address and press enter (See Figure 1). The WUI Main Menu page will be displayed. The default IP address is 192.168.254.12; but other IP addresses could be configured in the instrument.
From the main menu page, click the Edit NetConfig button (Figure 2).
Scroll down to the Edit NetConfig (QQQ network configuration) section. Type the GC IP Address in the DCOMM Partner IP Address if your GC supports DCOMM. TheGC must be an Agilent 7890B or 7890A+ with the latest firmware for DCOMM support (Figure 3)
Enter the IP Address, Gateway IPA, and Subnet Mask for the Triple Quadruple.
Click the Submit button to assign this IP address to the Triple Quadruple.
Tips: Attach a label to the Triple Quadrupole recording the NetConfig Parameters, or store them in a known location.
Close the browser page when you are done.
From the PC desktop, run the Agilent GC/MS Instrument Configuration program (Figure 4)
