Lab::Instrument::OI_Mercury - Oxford Instruments Mercury Cryocontrol
use Lab::Instrument::OI_Mercury; my $m=new Lab::Instrument::OI_Mercury( connection_type=>'Socket', remote_port=>7020, remote_addr=>184.108.40.206, );
The Lab::Instrument::OI_Mercury class implements an interface to the Oxford Instruments Mercury cryostat control system.
$mcat=$m->get_catalogue(); print "$mcat\n";
Returns the hardware configuration of the Mercury system. A typical response would be
Here, each group starting with "DEV:" describes one hardware component. In this case, we obtain for example:
DEV:GRPX:PSU | DEV:GRPY:PSU |- a 3-axis magnet power supply unit DEV:GRPZ:PSU | DEV:MB1.T1:TEMP -- a temperature sensor DEV:DB5.L1:LVL -- a cryogen level sensor
In each of these blocks, the second component after "DEV:" is the UID of the device; it can be used in other commands such as get_level to address it.
Read out the designated temperature channel. Result is in Kelvin (?).
Read out the designated liquid helium level meter channel. Result is in percent as calibrated.
