NAME

Lab::Instrument::OI_ILM210 - Oxford Instruments ILM Intelligent Level Meter

SYNOPSIS

    use Lab::Instrument::OI_ILM210;
    
    my $ilm=new Lab::Instrument::OI_ILM210(
      connection_type=>'IsoBus', 
      base_connection=>..., 
      isobus_address=>5,
    );

DESCRIPTION

The Lab::Instrument::OI_ILM210 class implements an interface to the Oxford Instruments ILM helium level meter (tested with the ILM210).

CONSTRUCTOR

    my $ilm=new Lab::Instrument::OI_ILM210(
      connection_type=>'IsoBus', 
      base_connection=> $iso, 
      isobus_address=> $addr,
    );

Instantiates a new ILM210 object, attached to the GPIB or RS232 connection (of type Lab::Connection) $iso, with IsoBus address $addr.

METHODS

get_level

    $perc=$ilm->get_level();
    $perc=$ilm->get_level(1);

Reads out the current helium level in percent. Note that this command does NOT trigger a measurement, but only reads out the last value measured by the ILM. This means that in slow mode values may remain constant for several minutes.

As optional parameter a channel number can be provided. This defaults to 1.

CAVEATS/BUGS

probably many
