We experienced an internet and phone outage on Friday, June 7th from approximately 10:30 AM to 1:00 PM. If you tried to email or call during that time, we may not have received your message. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Diablo Analytical will be attending Pittcon 2013 from March 17 – 21, 2013 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We will be located in the Quantum Analytics booth #1303. Please stop by to discuss the 5000A Real-Time Gas Analyzer, EZReporter Software, or our custom application development capabilities. Our partner, Frontier Laboratories is also exhibiting their pyrolysis GC-MS systems, including the new Tandem Micro Reactor, in booth #1311.
Diablo Analytical has released Version 126.96.36.199 (SR1) of the EZReporter Software. This new release addresses the following issues:
- Added the EZ Result Monitor software utility as an alternative to the ProcessEZChromData “After Export” program to transfer results from EZChrom to EZReporter. EZResultMonitor polls the EZChrom export folder every second and processes results automatically when it finds an ESD file. This utility was written for two purposes – 1) to address a defect in the OpenLab version of EZChrom that results in the After Export program not actually being called after acquisition, and 2) to better support multi-instrument installations. Instructions on configuring and using this utility can be found in the EZ Result Monitor reference manual:https://diabloanalytical.com/ezr/files/EZ Result Monitor.pdf
- Enhanced all of the “Connector” programs used to transfer results from the chromatography data systems to process configurations with large component lists much more efficiently.
- Fixed incorrect “Volume Factor” (cu.ft./gal) entries in the TP-17 standard data source for o-Xylene, 1,c2,c3-trmethylcyclohexane, and 1,1,2-trimethylcyclohexane. Also updated the default NGL configuration files to reflect these changes.
Installing this Release
To install this release, simply download and run the installation program linked below. You current version of EZReporter will be uninstalled and the new version installed automatically. Your license status will be preserved.
Important: If you are using a modified version of one of the default configuration files, make sure that you rename the configuration file from the original file name. Whenever you install EZReporter, the default configuration files are reset to their standard settings, so any customizations you have made would be lost.
About Diablo EZReporter Software
The Diablo EZReporter software provides advanced post-run reporting and analysis for the Agilent Technologies ChemStation or EZChrom Elite/SI/Open Lab Chromatography Data Systems, and the INFICON EZ IQ chromatography data system. Diablo’s EZReporter software is a flexible, advanced analysis and reporting solution for any instrument that can be controlled by a supported data system. The EZReporter Natural Gas Edition is the state-of-art solution for natural gas analysis and natural gas liquids reporting. The new Analog & Digital Output Module allows you to interface chromatographic and natural gas analysis results with process control systems.

EZReporter 3.0 is a free upgrade for customers with existing licenses of EZReporter 2.0 or earlier. However, if you upgrade you will need to reactivate the software.
Contact Diablo Analytical if you have any questions about EZReporter 3.0.
There appears to be a defect in the OpenLab version of the Agilent EZChrom Chromatography Data System that prevents results from being transferred to EZReporter automatically after acquisition. However, when you reanalyze the data file manually after the run, the results are transferred as expected. The defect prevents the “After Export” program, “ProcessEZChromData.exe”, from being called after acquisition.
To address this issue, we have written a new utility program called “EZ Result Monitor” that eliminates the need for the “After Export” program in the EZChrom method. It is a standalone program that watches the EZChrom export folder for the .ESD text files, and then processes the results contained in those files automatically as they are detected.
We have released a new version of EZReporter that contains this utility. You can download EZReporter 188.8.131.52 at this link:
Instructions on configuring and using this utility can be found in the EZ Result Monitor reference manual:
