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, GPIB, or Serial. Sample code – using our chamber controller interface command set – is provided below. Unsupported IVI and LabVIEW Plug and Play 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.
