The compact Empower® 3 manual


More than just online help.
The compact manual for end-users.

The manual provides users of HPLC and GC analysis with the essential knowledge of the software in an easy-to-understand manner. It describes the functions and operation of the software based on Empower® Build 3471 Feature Release 2, equipped with the PDA and System Suitability options.

The manual covers the basic functions as well as configuration and administration topics. In independent chapters, beginners learn everything about the structure of the system, data acquisition, the evaluation of measurement results, and the creation of reports. As a reference book, it supports experienced users in the use of not everyday functions of Empower and contains the necessary information for the configuration and administration of the system, the creation of user-defined database fields, and more.

The current version is the fundamentally revised version of our Empower manual from 2007. It is still suitable for users of an earlier version of Empower, as fundamental changes have not occurred. Functions that have been added with the introduction of Empower® 3 are indicated in the respective section by an Empower® 3 logo in the margin. Numerous digressions offer, in some cases, a deepening of special topics that cannot be found in this form in the Empower online help. In addition, the authors provide answers to questions that are repeatedly posed to us as a service provider for Empower in the context of workshops, training, and user support.

[…] I already know the Empower Handbook 3 and would also like to express great praise at this point – it is really the only comprehensible literature on this program.
