Abstract:

CARYSPEC is a FORTRAN 77 program designed for acquisition of UV-VIS- NIR spectra from the CARY 2300 - 2400 series spectrophotometers via an IEEE-488 interface bus to an external computer system. The program is written to operate on a Hewlett-Packard 1000 minicomputer but with very few system dependent features to enable easy conversion for other host systems. The operation of the spectrophotometer is controlled by CARYSPEC using menu displays on the system console to setup instrument parameters, baseline correction, data acquisition and disk file storage. CARYSPEC provides detailed error trapping for inappropriate instrument settings and automatic adjustment of spectral bandwidth and gain level during data acquisition to match the current baseline correction. Spectra are stored in disk files for subsequent use by plotting, editing and data analysis programs.
