The Model 460 has a four line by 20 character vacuum fluorescent display. During normal operation, the display is used to report field readings and give results of other features such as max/min or relative. When setting instrument parameters, the display gives the operator meaningful prompts and feedback to simplify operation. The operator can also control display brightness.
Following are four examples of the various display configurations:
Normal reading–the display configured to show the live DC field readings for the X, Y, and Z axis, as well as the vector magnitude
Max DC hold on—the display configured to show the live DC field readings for the X, Y, and Z axis, as well as the maximum field reading (settable to any axis)
Differential reading on—the display configured to show the live DC field readings for the X, and Y axis, as well as the X-Y axis differential reading
3 separate probe readings on—the display configured to show the the X, Y, and Z axis as three separate gaussmeters: the X axis as a DC field reading with audible and visual alarm, the Y axis as an RMS field value, and the Z axis as a peak field value
Probes and sensors
Lake Shore offers an extensive line of single, two-, and three-axis probes, standard Hall sensors, and probe accessories. Lake Shore probes are factory calibrated for accuracy and interchangeability. Factory-calibrated probes feature a programmable read-only memory (PROM) in the probe connector so that calibration data can be read automatically by the instrument. If the probe is equipped with a temperature sensor, the Model 460 reads both temperature and field signal and continuously adjusts the calculated field value. The customer can also download sensitivity for discrete Hall sensors. In addition, Lake Shore can custom design probes and assemblies to meet specific application needs.
