With the ever-changing nature of both hardware and software platforms, Thermotron highly recommends using a command-based approach to communicate with our chamber controllers via TCP or GPIB. Sample code - using our chamber controller interface command set - is provided below. Unsupported IVI drivers for some legacy hardware platforms and software versions are provided.
NOTE: In an effort to keep these examples simple, there is no error handling.
Thermotron also offers National Instruments LabVIEW® VI libraries which contain support for all Thermotron computer I/O commands for the specified instruments.
LabVIEW 7.x Instrument Libraries
|2800/4800 LabVIEW Driver (652 KB ZIP File)||3200/3800 LabVIEW Driver (640 KB ZIP File)|
|7800 LabVIEW Driver (881 KB ZIP File)||7825 LabVIEW Driver (583 KB ZIP File)|
|8800-8200 LabVIEW Driver (690 KB ZIP File)|
LabVIEW 8.x Instrument Libraries
|8825 LabVIEW 8.x Driver (3.07MB ZIP File)||8800-8200 LabVIEW 8.x Driver (2.48MB ZIP File)|
NOTE: Successful use of the drivers presumes a working knowledge of the software. Thermotron distributes these LabVIEW® drivers as is and can offer only minimal support for their use.
Thermotron is developing updated LabView drivers for our current instruments and will make them available when they are complete.
