Software

User-friendly Software

Solaris controlling software offers a simply laid out, yet powerful platform for experimental design planning and process control. The graphical user interface enables the intuitive selection & adjustment of control functions.

Extracted data is compatible with Window Excel, but in addition, Solaris offers a platform where fermentation data can be easily exported in real time & thus managed. This software is included in supply and can be installed on an unlimited number of the client’s PC or laptops.

Features include:

  • Multi-level password protection
  • Workflow settings (warm-up, calibration, pre-cultivation, cultivation, cleaning, etc.)
  • Synoptic page with manual-automatic operation toggle of available components, (pumps, temperature control, etc.), & parallel synoptic comparison between units.
  • Continuous real-time trends available for comparable observation, of up to 6 process and set point variables at one time.
  • Dynamic zooming and configuration within chosen time frames.
  • Cascade and profile controls
  • Parallel setpoint adjustments
  • Parallel process sensor calibration (offline and online)
  • Parallel trend comparison
  • Pump configuration & calibration
  • PID setting adjustment
  • USB connection for data extraction
  • Remote control capabilities
  • Process recipe storage

Solaris Logic Parser:

The Solaris Logic Parser plug-in, integrated to Leonardo 2.0 as standard, gives users the additional capability of customized control by relating all available process variables with common conditional statements. The communication between Leonardo 2.0 and logical functions is via exchange database.
