Profix is a software for automated microsensor measurements. It can read data from two different sensor meters. In addition, Profix can control motorized micromanipulators from PyroScience. Besides basic features like data logging and strip chart recorders, the central feature of the program are automated microprofile measurements. The user defines the (i) starting-depth, (ii) the end-depth, and (iii) the step size of the desired microprofile, thereafter the computer will control the complete microprofiling process. The timing-schemes can be adjusted in detail. Automated long-term measurements can easily be set up (e.g. performing a microprofile measurement every hour for several days). If the micromanipulator is additionally equipped with a motorized x-axis (e.g. MUX2), Profix can also perform automated transect measurements. The acquired microprofiles can be directly analysed (areal flux calculations, input file generation for the microprofile analysis program PROFILE from Peter Berg).
