Continuously Variable Temperature (CVT) Probes

CVT probeDeveloped in collaboration with TOYO Corporation of Japan, Lake Shore’s patented Model ZN50R-CVT probes allow you to measure through temperature sweeps without the need to lift and re-land your probes each time you adjust temperature. The probes automatically compensate for probe arm temperature expansion of thermally anchored probes, significantly improving measurement reliability and enabling measurement automation over wide temperature ranges.

regular and CVT probe movement

CVT probe features:

  • Convenient, precise measurement without probe tip movement
  • Improved repeatability by elimination of repositioning errors
  • Labor and time savings with uninterrupted or unattended variable temperature measuring
  • Enables continuous data measurement rather than measurement intervals
  • Interchangeable with standard ZN50R probes
