Creator Software

Modules and standalone applications for vacuum device and system control.

Our Creator software package is worth knowing about.

Creator is a Graphical User Interface which represents a collection of separate modules for our full range of instruments and controllers.

Since most of our generic vacuum controllers are fully compatible with third party components (pumps, gauges etc.), Creator can provide an all-in-one control platform for even the most complicated vacuum system.

Each module offers full access to its physical equivalent and many additional features such as save, store and recall of device settings, continuous or discreet recording of data and device parameters, and view/listing of user actions.

Creator can in the first instance be used as a standalone software platform for individual instruments/devices. As more devices are added, each available module can be quickly and easily activated within Creator to allow simple, effective and interlocked control of a complete vacuum system and associated instrumentation from any desktop PC.

Each module can be password protected with a number of user and administrator access levels.

Creator MBE Example:

Creator MBEThe Creator MBE Control Module is our dedicated, easy to use software package for long term, stable control of MBE growth processes.

Our application includes:
- PLC control module for controlling water cooling circuit, air flush circuit and evaporator shutter mechanisms
- Quartz balance module for film thickness measurement and deposition rate monitoring
- Sample manipulator module for precision control of sample position
- Sample shutter manipulator module
- Evaporator shutter process control editor which allows the user to define shutter open/close time with 1 ms resolution
- Power supply modules

Creator Web Interfaces:
Creator Web InterfacesAll of our instruments that have Ethernet communications are fully web enabled and can be controlled and/or monitored over any network, including the internet. The web interfaces are feature rich software applications that don’t require any plugins or local machine software, other than a common web browser.

- Real time view
- Platform independent web application
- Read or Write device parameters.
- Easy access to device from internet
