It controls the validity of each HPTLC PRO SYSTEM defined in the visionCATS installation:
A HPTLC PRO Module can belong to only one HPTLC PRO SYSTEM.
A HPTLC PRO SYSTEM can’t contain several HPTLC PRO Modules of same type. Supporting this could be possible in a later version.
It contains a state machine that:
Performs the initialization of the HPTLC PRO SYSTEM to determine its availability and raises errors (see Understanding the HPTLC PRO Module and CAMAG® HPTLC PRO SYSTEM initialization).
Finds and keeps track of the carriers present across the HPTLC PRO SYSTEM.
Tries to recover the execution of the runs after some events such as a door opened or a disconnection of an instrument.
It features a history where all events related to the initialization of the HPTLC PRO SYSTEM and the execution of the runs are stored.
It includes a Diagnostics part which checks that the instruments of the HPTLC PRO SYSTEM are correctly positioned.
