Control software

Free remote control and monitoring software for all Oxford Cryosystems devices


CryoConnector is Oxford Cryosystems' proprietary software, designed to allow users to monitor and control their systems from a PC. The software is entirely free and can be used with 700 series devices via the serial port on the controller, or on 800 series devices via serial port, USB and ethernet connections. CryoConnector allows you to replicate all the functions of your controller on a PC including Cool, Ramp, Hold and End and also ensures that log files can be collected, which can be invaluable in the event that technical support is required.

Oxford Connect

By combining CryoConnector software with our new free Oxford Connect website, you will be able to:

  • Connect to your OC device via the web
  • Remotely monitor and control your device from a PC, smartphone or tablet
  • Automatically log your device data
  • Enable Oxford Cryosystems to remotely view your device performance for faster tech support



    Integration into your system

    Our coolers are already fully integrated with the control systems of all diffractometer manufacturers. Should you be interested in integration of any of our devices (including GM Cryocoolers) into your own instrument's control system then this is easily achieved. A number of options are available including linking to CryoConnector via a simple API and direct communication with the device using serial, USB or Ethernet protocols. Our software team are available to offer advice and assistance - please contact softwaresupport@oxcryo.com.
