PEAXACT Tour Part 7 - Real-Time Analysis

This is part 7 of a tour through PEAXACT - Sotware for Quantitative Spectroscopy from S-PACT. It shows how to use PEAXACT as a back-end predictor for automated real-time analysis, introducing the PEAXACT Application Server API and PEAXACT ProcessLink.

PEAXACT Application Server

The PEAXACT Application Server is a Windows DLL which provides an Application Programming Interface (API) to PEAXACT data analysis. For example, you can write your own software and implement PEAXACT as a back-end predictor using Visual Studio and .NET. Or you can integrate PEAXACT with third-party applications if they provide a scripting or plug-in engine, e.g. VBA in Excel or VB Script in general.

For some third-parties the PEAXACT Application Server is shipped with ready-to-use interfaces, e.g. for Kaiser (HoloPro) or Bruker (OPUS), other third-parties have already integrated the PEAXACT Application Server into their software themselves, e.g. tec5 (MultiSpec Pro II) or CAMO (Process Pulse II).

PEAXACT ProcessLink

PEAXACT ProcessLink is a Windows App which links PEAXACT data analysis to any third-party application without the need to write custom software. ProcessLink uses a technique called "folder monitoring" to watch a directory for incoming files. New spectrum files are automatically analyzed in real-time. Results are immediately presented to the user in a real-time chart, and are exposed to external applications by means of a built-in OPC UA server. This procedure is totally device-independent, i.e. it works with any lab or process instrument and any measurement software. All it needs is a PEAXACT model to analyze the data.
