READY TO USE CRYSTAL XE CONTROL SOFTWARE FOR SUPERVISING MBE SYSTEMS

Cutting edge features

About Crystal XE

Crystal XE is a Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition software (SCADA) with realtime sequence capability (recipe). This feature is necessary for Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE). The user can customize his own Human Machine Interfaces (HMI), write his own scripts for automation in real time without rebuilding the application and during execution of the process.
