Not at the moment. However the quick start guide will get you going quickly and the on-screen real time plot of the temperature error makes it easy to see how the control loop is working and optimise the values. We plan to add an automatic optimiser but are very protective of your valuable QCL!
The PID control loop runs in a Digital Signal Processor using floating point arithmetic so the range of PID values is practically unlimited. The same algorithm in our TC4 temperature controller can handle thermal time constants from fractions of a second to hours.
The temperature controller is optimised for use with standard NTC thermistors as they give the highest sensitivity to temperature change. Using a standard thermistor with a T25 of between 10k and 100k the temperature resolution of the controller is under 1mK. The thermistor type and characteristics can be defined through the temperature controller setup user […]
Yes. Please contact us to discuss what you need. The Ice Bloc QCL driver was designed around particular customer requirements. Let us know what you need and we’ll let you know if we can do it.
Yes. Please contact us to discuss what you need. We design everything we make and can almost certainly optimise the system performance around your requirements.
The standard QCL driver with an output current up to1A has an output current noise density of less than 2nA/√Hz from 10Hz to 1MHz.
