Cryogenic programmable temperature controller: multi-channel, accurate, intelligent and upgradable

  • Accurate: Measures and controls temperatures down to 250 mK with a precision of 0.1 mK. Best-in-class measurement capability via constant voltage excitation
  • User-friendly interface: Intuitive touch screen interface and remote software control via LabVIEW library. Allows for direct and remote control of the cryogenic systems
  • Adapts to your needs: Via its unique flexible design incorporating plug-and-play expansion cards. Optional level meter and gas flow control. Allows up to four isolated PID control loops, nine sensor inputs and four 80 W heater outputs

Note: The set of expansion cards now includes a 'Pressure Sensor' card.
