Linkam THMS600 Versatile Heating and Cooling Stage

Linkam’s market-leading THMS600 is one of the most widely used heating and cooling instruments available; thousands of this
popular device have been sold around the world to date. The THMS600 is used in a range of applications where rapid heating/
cooling rates and high levels of accuracy and stability are required. Samples are quickly characterised by heating to within a few
degrees of the required temperature at a rate of up to 150°C/min, then slowed down to a few tenths of a degree per minute to
closely examine sample changes.
Our LINK software can be used to record the entire experiment and associated images, which can then be displayed as a chart or
exported for further analysis. The TASC image analysis module can be used to analyse structural changes as the sample evolves
with temperature.
Several application-specific versions of this stage are also available; these include pressure, humidity, electrical sample
measurement and a vertical stage with sample holders enabling use in infrared or X-ray spectrometers.
A system requires both the THMS600 stage and a T96-S temperature controller, which is available with either LINK software for
computer control, or a LinkPad touch screen for stand-alone control. For cooling below ambient temperatures, an optional LNP96-S
liquid nitrogen pump is also available.

 

Features

WIDE TEMPERATURE RANGE
The temperature range spans from < -195°C (using the optional LNP96-S) up to 600°C, accommodating a versatile range of experimental conditions.

RAPID HEATING /COOLING RATES
The powerful T96-S controller allows the stage to heat samples at a maximum rate of 150°C/minute.

HIGH DEGREE OF ACCURACY AND STABILITY
The embedded high quality Pt100 platinum sensor guarantees high accuracy and stability throughout the temperature range.

VARIOUS OPTICAL TECHNIQUES
Add environmental control to Raman spectroscopy, confocal microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and most other experimental setups.

QUICK-RELEASE GAS PORTS
Simple and easy stage purging to allow atmospheric composition control.

XY MANIPULATORS
Control of sample position over 15mm of travel in X and Y directions via precision ground manipulators.

WATER-COOLED
Water-cooled stage body for work above 300°C.
