Lake Shore’s Cryogenic Temperature Sensors now on elliotscientific.com

Lake Shore offers four types of sensor for cryogenic temperature measurement based on voltage (diodes) or resistance. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, and these can be easily seen at-a-glance via our new Cryogenic Temperature Sensors page.

For example: Of the three most common NTC resistor materials, sputter-deposited zirconium oxy-nitride aka Cernox™ – the others being Germanium and Ruthenium Oxide (Rox™) – is the most versatile. Cernox™ thin film resistors are only manufactured by Lake Shore Cryotronics, and incorporated into robust sensor packages.

Cernox™ works over a broad temperature range, does not follow a standard curve, has sensitivity below 1 K, and is highly resistant to ionising radiation and magnetic field-induced errors. These features can be instantly seen on the page via our colourful graphics:

 0.1 to 420  ✘  ✔  ✔  ★★★ (1 K +)

In all, nine different temperature sensor materials are detailed and an informative datasheet is available to download. However, Elliot Scientific still recommends contacting us for expert advice on sensor choice for your application.


July 2016 Newsletter Out Now

July 2016 NewsletterThe Elliot Scientific July newsletter is now available. In this issue we announce Elliot Scientific’s new ISO9001:2015 certification and Lake Shore‘s latest brochure covering their product ranges, explain how Andeen-Hagerling measure more than most using nano Siemens and why Tristan Technologies can sense femto Teslas, then describe how to manage remote temperature measurements with the popular Neoptix OmniFlex 2 system.

New OmniFlex 2 multi-channel fibre optic temperature monitoring system from Neoptix

omniflex-2

The Neoptix OmniFlex 2 System is a new, fully upgradeable, multi-channel fibre optic temperature monitoring system.

Field upgradeable to as many as 104 channels, the unit can be controlled by its onboard colour touchscreen, or remotely using a web browser via Ethernet. The latter method is more comprehensive, as it enables remote module configuration, data-logging capabilities, full electrical isolation, and optional WiFi connectivity.

The basic OmniFlex 2 chassis is a standard 3U in height that accommodates up to 6 OmniModules, while a 6U version can be fitted with a total of 13 OmniModules. Additional chassis can be cascaded by linking them via a router.

OmniModules

The OmniFlex 2 System allows use of several types of OmniModules in the same chassis. These plug-in modules can easily be mixed and matched to meet the needs of specific test projects. The current OmniModules are:

  • 4-channel direct measurement module operating at 10 Hz/channel
  • 4-channel multiplexed module operating at 250 ms/channel
  • 8-channel multiplexed module operating at 250 ms/channel
  • 16-channel 0-10 V analogue output module

Since its introduction in 2006, OmniFlex systems have been used in aerospace, cryogenic research, medical and other demanding industrial applications. It has also been the ideal tool of choice for monitoring temperatures during power transformer testing due to its -80 to +300 °C measuring range.

Nufern’s new fibre coverings resist hydrogen gas and high temperatures

Nufern Speciality Optical FibreThe NuSENSOR™ product line, by Nufern, features graded index multimode (MM) fibres designed for Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS); and single-mode (SM) fibres designed for Distributed Temperature and Strain Sensing (DTSS), and Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) based sensors.

Both the MM and SM fibres are available with either pure silica or germanium doped core glass compositions, and Nufern is now offering these fibres with carbon/polyimide or carbon/mid-temperature acrylate coatings in addition to the existing polyimide coated fibres. Depending on coating chosen, the fibre is can be protected from temperatures up to 300 °C and H2 rich environments.

ICE Box™: Integrated Control Electronics from Vescent Photonics

ICE_Angle_1-371x264Vescent Photonics has introduced ICE, a compact suite of digitally controlled electronics that will precisely drive and stabilise a broad range of semiconductor lasers and associated photonics tools.

The ICE system is based on the same high-performance D2 Series electronics that have established Vescent Photonics as the leader in laser control and stabilisation. It is fully compatible with all Vescent D2 modules and can be used to drive and control a complete stabilised-laser system; overseeing frequency and temperature, offset lock DBR, DFB, or External Cavity lasers.

Each ICE control board is commanded via a USB Virtual Communication Port programmed in a language such as LabVIEW™, MATLAB™, Python, Java, et al. An intuitive GUI can also be used to issue commands and control the experiment or, if installed in the ‘ICE Box’- a chassis that provides power and interface connections – a front-panel control is included.

For more information about this new product, or any other from Vescent Photonics, please contact us.
