I’m using FC 3.1 … so can’t comment xD

Is anyone aware if Te-Chrom smart command was released in FC 3.4? Example shown in video below.

I assumed it was released in FC3.3 but I would have to install the TeChrom Driver which I don’t want to do in my VM :rofl:

Anyone else know? @Optimize @MikeMueller

Hi, there is a Te-Chrom smart command available in FluentControl 3.3 but further improvements were made to it in version 3.4, particularly related to how it handles variable-ization of some of the fields in the command.

I am actively working on a Fluent Te-Chrom project. Please let us know if we can be of any help.

The command is in FluentControl version 3.3 but the newly released 3.4 makes further improvements to it.

Excellent, thank you for the heads up! I don’t get this kind of news from anywhere else. Lol

Trying out the software and am running into an issue where I cannot add a lid to an existing plate using the “Add Labware” command with the GetCoverSite… functions. Typically receive a site not available error but also receive a phantom collision error when attempting this to a plate on the carousel.

First check if the lid is an allowed labware type, and otherwise I’m wondering if the software is mixing up the stacking pos with the lid pos - I can’t remember if those are designated individually or not.

The collision error could be a multitude of things. If memory serves, carousels were always a nightmare to configure perfectly. Check out the FluentControl help manual on how to properly set up the towers.
