Designed with the user and ease of use in mind, the Model 335 temperature controller offers many user-configurable features and advanced functions that until now have been reserved for more expensive, high-end temperature controllers. The Model 335 is the first two-channel temperature controller available with user configurable heater outputs delivering a total of 75 W of low noise heater power—50 W and 25 W, or 75 W and 1 W. With that much heater power packed into an affordable half-rack sized instrument, the Model 335 gives you more power and control than ever.
Control outputs are equipped with both hardware and software features allowing you, and not your temperature controller, to easily control your experiments. Output one functions as a current output while output two can be configured in either current or voltage mode. With output two in voltage mode, it functions as a ±10 V analog output while still providing 1 W of heater power and full closed loop proportional-integral-derivative (PID) control capability. Alarms and relays are included to help automate secondary control functions. The improved autotuning feature of the Model 335 can be used to automatically calculate PID control parameters, so you spend less time tuning your controller and more time conducting experiments.
The Model 335 supports the industry's most advanced line of cryogenic temperature sensors as manufactured by Lake Shore, including diodes, resistance temperature detectors (RTDs), and thermocouples. The controller's zone tuning feature allows you to measure and control temperatures seamlessly from 300 mK to over 1,500 K. This feature automatically switches temperature sensor inputs when your temperature range goes beyond the useable range of a given sensor. You'll never again have to be concerned with temperature sensor over or under errors and measurement continuity issues.
The intuitive front panel layout and keypad logic, bright vacuum fluorescent display, and LED indicators enhance the user-friendly front panel interface of the Model 335. Four standard display modes are offered to accommodate different instrument configurations and user preferences. Say goodbye to sticky notes and hand written labels, as the ability to custom label sensor inputs eliminates the guesswork in remembering or determining the location to which a sensor input is associated. These features, combined with USB and IEEE-488 interfaces and intuitive menu structure and logic supports efficiency and ease of use.
