Making cryogenics easy

DEMCON kryoz has developed cryogenic cooling platforms that make cryogenics accessible to a wide market in a plug-and-play manner. With unique designed cryo-technologies, our desktop systems focus on the rapid and extremely easy measurements of a single electronic circuit or small sample at low temperatures.

Look for yourself how easy cryogenic measurements can be.

The CryoLab
CryoLab View 3

Controlled, simple and fast cryogenic measurements.

The CryoLab is designed to perform rapid material or circuit characterization measurements from room temperature down to cryogenics in a fully automated manner.

Doing measurements doesn’t require any experience or know-how on cryogenics, vacuum technology or thermodynamics from the user.

There are two, off-the-shelf, versions of the CryoLab: the CryoLab S (90 K) and CryoLab MSG (75 K). The type that suits your needs best, depends on your application and mainly on the temperature requirement.

The CryoLab S can reach temperatures down to 90 Kelvin and is available with (CryoLab SP) or without a fully integrated vacuum pump (CryoLab S). Full specifications of the CryoLab S and can be found here.

The CryoLab MSG can reach temperatures as low as 75 Kelvin. Additionally, there is a dedicated CryoLab MSG version which is optimized for SQUIDs measurements.  More information and specifications of the CryoLab MSG can be found here.

These systems can be used to preform measurements for various applications:

CryoVision

Controlling your measurements.

CryoVision is the software package to control the CryoLab from a PC and is included with all systems. Although the CryoLab can be fully operated as a stand-alone apparatus, with CryoVision you are able to control the system in more detail. You can see all parameters in a glance, switch between single set-point and programs. Create, edit and save programs and export your data. System requirements for CryoVision stand-alone program: Windows™ 7 or later. Sub-VIs for temperature control or parameter read-out: LabView 8.0 or higher.

Some functions…

  • Temperature control: single set-point / programs / external
  • Manual or automated PID tuning
  • Direct bottle-, vacuum- and gas-line pressure monitoring
  • CryoVision Monitor via TCP/Web server
  • LabView subVIs to read or read/control current temperature
  • Automated software and firmware internet updates

The CryoLab S

Technical specifications

  • Controllable temperature: 90 – 373 Kelvin
  • Net cooling power*: 100 mW @ 95 Kelvin
  • Typical cool-down time: 25 minutes to 90 K

  • Sample to PCB thermal connection via glueing (e.g. GE varnish) or soldering.
  • Sample to PCB electronic lead connections via soldering, bonding or glueing.
  • Resistance from signal connector to PCB bond/solder pad: ~ 3.3 Ω
  • Maximum allowable voltage: 10 V
  • Maximum allowable current: 20 mA
  • Maximum sample size: 10 mm x 10 mm

Hardware

The CryoLab S is a desktop system where all the required hardware is fully integrated inside a small casing. All connections to and from the CryoLab S, both gas and electrical, are made using quick connects. The CryoLab S-series come in two versions: the CryoLab S (no internal turbo pump) and the CryoLab SP (includes internal turbo).
