WinControl-3 Software

General Features and Graphical User Interface

The WinControl-3 software represents the latest version of the WinControl software family. Presently, WinControl-3 operates the MONITORING-PAM, MINI-PAM-II, DIVING-PAM-II and JUNIOR-PAM fluorometers, PAM-CONTROL operated instruments (MICROSCOPY-PAM, MICROFIBER-PAM and WATER-PAM) as well as the Universal Light Meter ULM-500.

WinControl-3 handles simultaneously multiple PAM fluorometers and permits very long periods of data acquisition.


Data Evaluation

Saturating pulse analysis with automatic detection and calculation of standard fluorescence parameters including Fo, Fm, Fo’ (calculated), Fm’, Fv/Fm, qP, qL, qN, NPQ, Y(II), Y(NPQ), Y(NO), ETR.

Data Export

Export in CSV (comma-separated values) format of original fluorescence traces, saturating pulse analysis data and parameter estimates of light response curves.

Automated Routines

Repetitive triggering of fluorometer functions (e. g., dark-light induction and dark recovery curves) by adjustable clock. Automatic execution of light exposure protocols and fitting of two different model functions to data of light response experiments. Execution of customized experimental procedures using easily programmable batch files.
