Remote control access software for Triton

Triton cryogen free dilution refrigerators are controlled via a software, which allows system automation of refrigerator routines or programmable temperature/field sequences.

System automation:

  • Fully automatic cool down / warm up routines
  • Fully automatic pre-cooling / mixture collection
  • Sample change wizard for systems with load-locks
  • Fully integrated magnet control, including vector rotate magnet software

Experimental control:

  • Programmable temperature and field sequences
  • Programming library supplied with example LabVIEW VIs
  • Integration of dilution refrigerator / magnet control and experimental data acquisition

In-built safety features: 

  • Continuous monitoring of all pressure gauges
  • System automatically enters “safe state”, if necessary
  • Automatic software intervention in case of over pressure with fail-safe in-line pressure relief valves, protecting the mixture and dilution refrigerator in the event of extended power failures
  • UPS option – automatic alert emails can be sent to user in the event of a power failure
  • Monitoring of magnet temperature during field sweep, high temperature control, sample loading
  • Automatic magnet de-energisation in the event of power cut, pulse tube cooler failure, excessive heat load on second stage cooling

User support:

  • Detailed remote interface programming manual
  • Remote system access by Oxford Instruments support staff can be enabled to aid system diagnostics
  • Free software upgrades available for download from Oxford Instruments’ website
  • All system settings are backed up prior to shipping from the factory

Triton command interface:

  • Platform independent remote scripting interface
  • Standard internet (TCP/IP) protocol
  • Compatible with any programming language that can access the TCP port e.g., LabVIEW / Matlab / Python / C / C++ / C# / Visual Basic / HP VEE, etc.
  • Monitoring and control of automatic software routines and system parameters
  • Definable access levels (read only / read write, etc.) with security
