The multi-component asset function is used to link assets that have unique serial numbers but are operationally and/or physically connected.  For example, this tool may be used to link components such as a fraction collector to the primary HPLC unit. 

 

Here is an example:

I have registered the main component of an HPLC system and saved the unit as a "Multi-Component System":


Assets that have the multi-component function enabled will display a triangle on the lower left of the serial number with a count of all the assets that are contained within the system. I have not yet added any additional assets to this system so the number is “0”:


To add assets to the system, first register the assets in Qualer and drop the assets into your “Quick Collections” folder on the left of the screen:


After you add the assets to your Quick Collections the “+” will change to the number of assets you’ve added, in this case “2”:


Now, click on the multi-component system tally to link this assets to the original/main unit:


Click on the Highlighted button for “Add from Quick Collection”


The assets will now all be linked under the main unit as displayed below:
