Software, drivers, and utilities
MeasureLINK™-MCS software provides a non-programming method for controlling an experimental environment, monitoring important system parameters, and coordinating the collection of measurement data. Integrated scripts enable you to easily develop custom solutions to collect, process, and present data.
In addition to MeasureLINK-MCS, there are packs you can install to support specific applications and run more advanced measurement routines. These application packs allow you to customize MeasureLINK by adding all the required instrument drivers, measurements, examples, and documentation.
MeasureLINK-MCS is free to use with registration. After the 90-day evaluation period, the custom scripting option, if required, is an additional fee.
MeasureLINK™ standard features
- Free of charge (requires registration)
- Coordinates all aspects of characterization experiments
- Select a sequence of pre-written, drag-and-drop functional steps to control the environment (temperature, magnetic field, current, and voltage) and collect data
- Automatically steps through user-defined sequences
- Time-stamps readings and conditions at each measurement for a correlated dataset
- Enables data collection visualization in real-time, with multi-variable charting of any data sequence as it occurs
- Makes it easy to share coordinated, time-stamped experimental data with any external system or tool of choice, such as LabVIEW™, MatLab®, Python™, etc.
- Data can be used for analysis, remote execution, or supervisory control
MeasureLINK™ custom scripting option
- Purchased separately
- Allows user to construct new and edit existing measurement scripts, providing complete control over every aspect of the experiment
- Included with all system products
MeasureLINK™ application packs
- Extend the functionality of MeasureLINK™ by adding additional instrument drivers, scripts, examples, and documentation related to specific tasks

First-Order-Reversal-Curve (FORC) utility
The FORC utility provides a convenient way for 7400 and 7400-S Series VSM users to set up and run FORC measurements. These measurements provide unprecedented insight into the magnetic properties of materials, information that is not possible to obtain from a hysteresis loop alone.
Magnetocaloric effect (MCE) analysis software
Offered in a free beta trial version, this software package allows Lake Shore 7300/7400 Series VSM users to more easily analyze candidate materials for magnetocaloric effect (MCE) behavior by calculating the magnetic entropy change and refrigerant capacity of the materials.
USB, LabVIEW™, Python™, and IVI.NET
