Lake Shore Software
Download software, firmware updates, and drivers.
MeasureLINK-MCS software is a simple yet powerful tool that allows scientists to implement open-ended measurement systems from a set of common instrumentation components. It combines drivers for Lake Shore and third-party instruments, measurement procedures, and data visualization elements so you can quickly validate a data set for export to an analysis tool (Mathcad, Mathematica, etc.)

The Lake Shore Curve Handler allows temperature curve files to be easily uploaded to Lake Shore temperature instruments. It can also be used to read temperature curves from Lake Shore instruments and write them to files, and to edit curve information and save the edited curve back to the instrument, or to a file.
The Lake Shore Chart Recorder is a general charting and logging software tool designed to work with several Lake Shore temperature instruments via USB, serial, GPIB, or Ethernet.
Instrument Communication Utility
The Instrument Communication Utility enables serial (USB) or TCP/IP communication with Lake Shore instruments. Through it, you can detect which COM ports are available on a local computer, and send commands and receive responses from connected instruments. It is a basic diagnostic utility, streamlining troubleshooting and assisting with Lake Shore service requests.
Magnetocaloric effect (MCE) analysis software
Offered in a free beta trial version, this software package allows Lake Shore 7300/7400 Series VSM users to more easily analyze candidate materials for magnetocaloric effect (MCE) behavior by calculating the magnetic entropy change and refrigerant capacity of the materials.
First-Order-Reversal-Curve (FORC) Utility
The FORC Utility provides a convenient way for 7400 and 7400-S Series VSM users to set up and run FORC measurements. These measurements provide unprecedented insight into the magnetic properties of materials, information that is not possible to obtain from a hysteresis loop alone.
240 Series software
MeasureLINK for the 240 Series
MeasureLINK for the 240 Series provides the ability to configure, maintain and directly monitor Lake Shore 240 Series cryogenic temperature sensor input modules.
There is also a zipped package for offline installation.
Please note: if you have installed version 220.127.116.11 or older of MeasureLINK for the 240 Series, you need to uninstall that older version in order to install this newest update.
