Low cryogen consumption: Brings significant benefits in terms of running cost

Simple: The experimental windows and sample holders can be easily changed

Versatile: A range of window materials are available. Please contact your local sales representative for more information

Software control: Oxford Instruments electronics products are controllable through the software using RS232, USB (serial emulation), TCP/IP or GPIB interfaces. LabVIEW function libraries and virtual instruments are provided for Oxford Instruments electronics products to allow PC-based control and monitoring. These can be integrated into a complete LabVIEW data acquisition system

Temperature range: 77 to 500 K

Temperature stability: ± 0.5 K

Liquid nitrogen consumption rate: 0.5 l/hr (nominal)

Room Temperature to base temperature: < 10 min with pre-cooled transfer siphon

Sample change time: approx. 30 min (cryostat must be warmed up to access the sample space)

Sample position stability: designed to give positional stability of the sample holder of approximately 1 µm

Cryostat weight: 0.4 kg
