    To upgrade and install MANTECH Pro is simple if you have a PC-Titrate. Once an order is placed, a member from MANTECH’s QC team will contact you for your active hinterland database. Once that information is verified, we will copy the methods to MANTECH Pro and send a USB with the needed adapters for the hardware.

    If needed, a member of our team is available to schedule a meeting to ensure that the methods and reports are working to your specific needs.

    1. Double click on the installer from the USB. Select “Yes” to proceed with the installation. Select “Next” once prompted and unselect “Read Me” once the installation is complete.
    2. Once the program has been installed, open the %programdata% folder on your computer by searching it in the taskbar. Once that has been opened, use the following pathway to find the folder \MANTECH\MANTECH PRO\Database.
    3. Add the DB.SQLite file from the USB to the database folder. Add the tray file from your USB to the Tray Files Folder and move the Documents folder from the USB to the MANTECH PRO Folder.
    4. You will now be able to register your MANTECH Pro software, using the product key and USB.

    The best part, PC-Titrate and MANTECH Pro can operate on the same computer with the same hardware minimizing downtime and making the transition easy and risk-free!

  • How to perform a Meter Calibration for Conductivity?

    MANTECH Pro automatically performs a single-point calibration without requiring the USER to interact with the meter. A calibration method will not be required. Before running your calibration script, ensure that the meter settings is configured with your probe.

    The following steps will outline how to calibrate the meter:

    For Automated systems

    1. Add in your tray file, rinsing, move to tube location and jogging movement steps, prior to the calibration step.
    2. Add a ‘Timing’ action of 30 seconds. This will allow the meter to stabilize the conductivity reading.
    3. Add the ‘Conductivity Meter Calibrate’ action and select the conductivity meter configured in Hardware Setup.
    4. Complete the script, configure the Run Configuration table, and click ‘Go to Run’ to start the meter calibration.

    For Manual systems

    1. Select ‘Misc.’ and type in instructions for analyst to manually dip the probe into the standard solution 3 times.
      • Make sure to let the probe rest inside the solution and click ‘OK’ when stabilization icon appears on the Meter.
    2. Add the ‘Conductivity Meter Calibrate’ action and select the conductivity meter configured in Hardware Setup.
    3. Complete the script, configure the ‘Run Configuration’ table, and click ‘Go to Run’ to start the meter calibration.
  • What are shortcuts?

    Shortcuts are customizable buttons that users can create from pre-saved templates generated on Run Configuration table. Shortcuts can have its own unique image and be organized by custom headers.

  • What will happen with the data on PC-Titrate? Will it be imported into MANTECH Pro?

    PC-Titrate can remain the computer currently operating your system and data can be viewed at anytime. Therefore, your data will not be lost and can be kept on that computer.

    Data saved/archived from PC-Titrate will not be able to be transferred onto MANTECH Pro.

    Note: To avoid any complications while operating MANTECH Pro, be sure to not use any actions in PC-Titrate that use the Interface, especially during a run on MANTECH Pro.

  • Will MANTECH Pro operate the hardware I currently have?

    MANTECH Pro will operate most of the hardware you currently have. The following hardware will require an upgrade:

    1. The old-style Burivar burets will have to be upgraded to our new MANTECH Burets. Burets are operated by an IP address, unique to each Buret, and will require an Ethernet-to-USB adapter we supply (setup will vary by system).
    2. The old-style Conductivity Meters (4310) will have to upgraded to our 4510 Conductivity Meters. COM port connection is no longer on the Interface but rather through a 1-port or 2-port USB-to-Serial adapter(s) (will vary on system setup).
    3. The old-style Turbidity Meters (Turbidity AssayPlus) will have to upgraded to our T10 Turbidity Meters.
    4. Computers Operating System (OS) that is not Windows 10 will not operate MANTECH pro. Minimum computer specifications are listed here.

    With the increase in USB connections to the computer, a multi-USB 3.0 hub may also be required.
