New temperature controller offers four standard inputs and four control outputs
Model 336 temperature controller

Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc. is proud to introduce the new Model 336 temperature controller, the first and only temperature controller available with four standard inputs, four control outputs and a total of 150 W of low noise heater power. Two independent heater outputs providing 100 W and 50 W can be associated with any of the four sensor inputs, and programmed for closed loop temperature control proportional-integral-derivative (PID) mode. The intelligent autotuning feature of the Model 336 can be used to automatically collect PID parameters, so you spend less time tuning your controller and more time conducting experiments.

The Model 336 temperature controller 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 setting feature allows you to measure and control temperatures seamlessly from 300 mK to over 1,500 K, eliminating concern of over or under errors and measurement continuity issues. Alarms, relays, and ±10 V analog outputs are available to help automate secondary control functions.

Another innovative first from Lake Shore, the ability to custom label sensor inputs eliminates the guesswork in remembering or determining the location to which a sensor input is associated. As we strive to maintain increasingly demanding workloads, ease of use and the ability to stay connected from anywhere in the world are critical attributes. With standard Ethernet, USB, and IEEE-488 interfaces, and an intuitive menu structure and logic, the Model 336 was designed with efficiency, reliable connectivity, and ease of use in mind. While you may need to leave your lab, you’ll always be connected to your experiments. The new intuitive front panel layout and keypad logic, bright graphic display, and LED indicators create a user friendly front panel interface of the Model 336.

In many applications, the unparalleled feature set of the Model 336 allows you to replace several instruments with one, saving you time, money and valuable laboratory space. Delivering more feedback, tighter control, and faster cycle times, the Model 336 keeps pace with increasingly complex temperature measurement and control applications. It is the ideal solution for general purpose to advanced laboratory applications. Put the Model 336 temperature controller to use in your lab, and take control of your measurement environment.

The non-CE version of the Model 336 is expected to begin shipping in mid-February 2009, and the CE version is expected to be available in early April. Place your order and reserve your Model 336 temperature controller at the introductory price of just $3,350 on domestic orders through May 2009.
