Proteus® Software for Thermal Analysis


Simultaneous Determination of Seebeck Coefficient and Electrical Conductivity


The Proteus® software runs on Windows® (XP Professional/Windows® 7/Ultimate/32-, 64-bit) and includes everything you need to carry out a measurement and evaluate the resulting data autonomously. Easy-to-understand menus and automated routines make for a tool that is extremely user-friendly while still allowing sophisticated analyses.


The Proteus® software is licensed with the instrument and can of course be installed on other computer systems.

Even the basic edition of the Proteus® software features all of the functional criteria expected of modern measuring and evaluation software for any Thermal Analysis method.For advanced measuring and evaluation methods, additional software packages are available.


Proteus 6.1 is the general software solution for all NETZSCH thermal analysis instruments. The newest release, Proteus7.0 (which additionally runs on Windows 8.1), includes a wealth of new features. Proteus 7.0 is currently only available for the DSC 214 Polyma.




NETZSCH Advanced Software


Advanced Software package a set of four individual software for the advances analysis of thermoanalytical data and further predictions and simulations.





Thermokinetics is a software for the kinetic analysis of thermal measurements, including model-free and model basedkinetic analysis.  The kinetic analysis allows to find the set of kinetic parameters e.g. number of steps, contribution of each step to the total effect of the process such as step enthalpy or step mass loss; reaction type, activation energy and reaction order for each step.



Thermal Simulations


A program for simulation of the thermal behavior under conditions of both heat generation and heat conductivity. A finite element solution for simple geometries such as infinite plate, infinite cylinder and sphere is offered. The temperature dependence of cp, density and heat conductivity is taken into account.



Component Kinetics


The Program is a software module for kinetic evaluation of measurements with reactions in homogeneous mixtures. The total process is presented as the sum of elementary reactions. The software determines the pre-exponential factor and activation energy for each elementary reaction and makes the prediction and optimization of the reaction behaviour for any temperature conditions and for any initial concentration of reactants, including the presence of solvent.



Peak Separation


If your experimental curve looks very complex with several maxima and seems to contain several overlapping peaksthen our software helps to separate these peaks, presents experimental data as a sum of peaks, and analyzes each peak separately. The universal peak shape is used, which is the weighted mixture of Fraser-Suzuki and asymmetric Cauchy. The following peak types are the partial cases of the universal peak shape: Gaussian, Cauchy, Pseudo- Voigt (additive mixture of Gaussian and Cauchy), Fraser-Suzuki (asymmetric Gaussian), Laplace, asymmetric Laplace and asymmetric Cauchy.



NETZSCH directA Software for Modulated Thermogravimetry


Calculation Methods in directA Versions


NETZSCH directA is the software for direct analysis of the thermogravimetric data, measured under the conditions of modulated temperature. The software calculates activation energy of chemical reactions from one modulated thermogravimetric measurement as the continuous function of time, temperature or reaction conversion over the whole measurement.




Modulated Thermogravimetry is the analysis method of the thermograviometric data measured under conditions of the modulated themperature. Modulated temperature is the sum of the underlying linear heating or constant temperature and sinus-shaped temperature oscillations with user-defined amplitude and period.


Data Import


The software can import data in plain text ASCII format. These data files can be created by export from the software connected with your instrument. Another way is tab-delimited ASCII export from Microsoft® Excel. Data for analysis must be time-equidistant.


During data import user must point here the column number for time, temperature and modulated Thermogravimetric signal. Additional required information is the temperature amplitude and oscillation period.


Imported data can be shown as the one of signal type: TG, DTG or modulated temperature. X-Axis is time, temperature or reaction conversion.




Analysis of the calculatied data is done by three different methods: Standard method, Linear Method and Non-linear Method. 


The software has the functionality of graphic zoom, copy graphic to clipboard and print graphic.

Instrument Cockpit App


Improved Efficiency with the Instrument Cockpit App from NETZSCH


You want to view the status of your NETZSCH instruments but you are in a meeting. You want to have an overview of the currently running measurements in your lab. You want to have control of your Thermal Analyzer without being on site.


The innovative Instrument Cockpit App from NETZSCH offers you these possibilities.


From your iPad, iPhone, Android tablet, Android Phone, or Windows PC connected to the intranet of your company via network, you can connect to NETZSCH instruments and view the current status. 


If user permissions are set up accordingly, you can view data of the running measurement and stop the measurement. As no data is submitted through the public internet, the data is protected from unauthorized access from the outside.


What you get:


  • Be informed

       Of the current status and the remaining time until the test runs are finished.


  • Be faster

       Direct access to the currently running test measurements. You can view and show

       results without being in the lab.


  • Be safe

       Ability to stop any measurement any time remotely
