Linkam Scientific Instruments has launched new software, NEXUS, to control and record all aspects of heating, cooling, vacuum, humidity and other environmental conditions in a Linkam stage with optional optical measurement capabilities. NEXUS Core is the main NEXUS platform that introduces a range of new specifications to enable a greater degree of experiment control. Users can easily monitor the status of their experiment with the live display feature, quickly creating observations and adjustments that alter the data collection process. The upgraded software ensures precise synchronisation between samples through the live status display in parallel with a real-time temperature chart.
The new optional NEXUS Image Capture Module facilitates automatic image capture at specific points during an experiment. Each image can be stamped with current temperature and other parameters to make offline analysis straightforward. Rewind and review capabilities offer a detailed analysis and can be used during live data recording.
Other optional modules include: Extended Measurements Module, Reporting Module, Thermal Analysis by Surface and the 21CFR11 Module. NEXUS is compatible with Windows, and will initially support the THMS, HFS, LTS, TS, HS, CCR and PE families of the Linkam stages, with expected regular compatibility updates for other stages. Linkam has developed NEXUS to support its T95 and T96 controllers, which are the standard universal controller support for Linkam stages.
