It is recommended to install the Low Noise / High Stability I to V Converter (SP 983) as close as possible to the sample. Therefore the I/V converter is often located in a places hard to access during running experiments. This Remote Control Interface allows for the remote control of the gain and LP cut-off frequency via a flat-cable with a length of serval meters. Since the remote control inputs on the LNHS I to V Converter are galvanically isolated by optocouplers no ground loops can occur. The Remote Control Interface comes with a 2.8'' touchscreen for manual control and has a serial port (RS-232) for simple ASCII communication with a computer.
This Remote Control Interface is based on a single-board Raspberry Pi B+ computer running a Linux operation system.
