How can I find Torque2.mac?

Hi every body

I need Torque2.mac for measuring the torque value of Theta axis of my G1313A autosampler.

Any help where can I find this macro please?

Parents
  • I´m not a sampler person, but to my knowledge macros could be found in the user contributed library (UCL) directory of the Chemstation CD.

  • Thank you dear Sir

    Actually I had searched UCL directory before but I could not find this macro. So I have no idea where can I find this file

  • I will check if I can find the file on one of my old HDDs, but the file is really old and, if I remember correctly, was only meant to be used with Chemstation A.X.X, which is fully out of support for many years.

  • Really appreciate dear friend

    You are exactly right and the software version which control the whole system is A.01.10

    Thank you again for your kind response

  • Found the torque2.mac on an old HDD. The file is almost 22 years old, so I cannot provide any support for it.

     

    Just copy everything below the line to a text editor and save as torque2.mac

    !
    ! This file contains macros to perform torque measurements for all four
    ! axes of the sample transport. In addition there is a macro GTorque that
    ! allows torque measurement only for the gripper (if a vial number is given
    ! the measurement is done at that position).
    ! To start the measurement type Torque or Gtorque [<vial>] on the
    ! ChemStation's command line.
    !
    ! Torque limits:
    !    X-Axis         50..90
    !    Z-Axis         90..130
    !    Theta             30..50     A value < 30 can lead to jerky movement
    !    Gripper open     30..65
    !    Gripper close     max. 30
