Launch Batalyse

The Launch Batalyse function initiates the evaluation by selecting one or more measurement files.

Reset Graph Elements

The Reset Graph Elements function key becomes active when you have selected evaluated result graphs in your Origin project. Origin gives you many ways to change the view of the result graph. You can zoom in or out on certain areas of the graph and select specific sections on the graph axes.

If you do this, the diagram label created by Batalyse, such as the C rate, may no longer be displayed or may have been moved. In addition, the axis scaling becomes incorrect for several axes in a diagram. By clicking on Reset Graph Elements the labels and axes are corrected according to your selected diagram view. The following examples show the effect of Reset Graph Elements.

Compare Workbooks

The Compare Workbooks function allows you to combine diagrams of different measurements in a comparison diagram. It makes sense to examine measurements with identical (or similar) test plan, but different test items.

In order to use Compare Workbooks, you must already have evaluated measurements in the Origin project. After clicking on Compare Workbooks a mask opens. You must mark the measurements to be compared in this mask. You can also mark more than one measurement.

The comparative diagrams are then plotted in a new “Comparison” folder.

Split Online

Split Online function is most useful when using Batalyse to evaluate online mass spectrometry (MS) or DEMS data (i.e. Tab „Advanced Methods (Batalyse Pro)““). With online MS or DEMS, many mass signals can be recorded. Batalyse plots the masses selected in the input mask together into one result diagram. After evaluation, you can use Split Online MS Graph to obtain a separate result diagram for each of the individual masses. More generally, this button can be used for diagrams in which a single layer contains multiple plots which you wish to separate into individual diagrams.

Re-open Parameters Dialog

The Re-open Parameters dialog allows you to change the parameter file of a measurement that has already been evaluated, e.g. because you made a typing error during input or because you need additional result diagrams that were not selected before.

If you have selected the data sheet/worksheet of a specific measurement, the corresponding parameter file is automatically loaded in the input mask.

You can now adjust the parameter file in the input mask. If you choose Save & use for Current Workbook at the bottom of the input screen, the parameter file is overwritten and the workbook is updated accordingly. Use the Delete Graphs checkbox to delete all result diagrams created with the old parameter file. The Replot Graphs checkbox recreates the result diagrams with the newly created parameter file. With the button Save to new JSON File you create a new parameter file after your changes. The old parameter file remains unchanged. With Set as Default, your entries are saved in the mask and displayed again the next time you call up the input mask.

Open File Parameters List

Open File Parameter List provides you with a (historical) overview of the storage locations of created parameter files and associated measurement files (Test File). Here you can link measurement files with parameter files. If you want to evaluate the measurement data later, Batalyse automatically accesses the parameter file linked here and evaluates it.

The function buutons Add to list, Save changes and close and New Parameters are available.

Add to List opens the following input window. Under the heading Data Type you select whether you want to load your measurement files from your hard disk or a data carrier (“file system”), or whether you want to access an SQL database (database). In the latter case, your measuring instruments must be able to be controlled via an SQL server. You will find information on setup a SQL server in the chapter Evaluation via a network/database/server setup

Select Test/s then select your measurement files and the corresponding parameters files. Your changes and set links will only be accepted if you click on the Save changes and close button. New Parameters opens the input mask for creating parameter files. Alternatively, you can use the corresponding button of the Batalyse Toolbar.

Import from Database

Import from Database allows you to connect Batalyse to an SQL Server when your instruments are connected to an SQL Server in the network. For more information, please refer to the chapter on database connection. Evaluation via a network/database/server setup.
