DESCRIPTION
The CANBERRA Cryo-Cycle™ II is a unique offering in the field of cryogenically
cooled radiation detectors. The Cryo-Cycle II is described as a “hybrid”
cryostat because it combines the advantages of electric cooling with the
reliability of liquid nitrogen. The long-life Pulse-Tube cryocooler, condenses
the boil-off N2 gas back into the 25 liter Dewar. This unique capability provides
the convenience of operating a detector for 12 to 18 months before LN2 needs
to be added, but at the same time keeps the detector cold in case of power
failure. With the Cryo-Cycle II the LN2 supply keeps the detector cold for up to
one week without power. There is no interruption of cooling. There is no downtime due to partial warm-up as long as LN2 level is maintained. There is no
risk of detector failure because of temperature cycling. LN2 lost during power
outages may be replenished at any time.
The Cryo-Cycle II comes with a number of improvements allowing us to
answer our customers’ requirements even better.
Key Improvements
•• Reduced cooler vibrations
•• Improved LN2 level sensor probe
•• Single front panel
•• RS-232 and USB interfaces
•• Alarm and autofill relay outputs
•• A Graphical User Interface (GUI)
The audible noise has been reduced to less than 60 dB(A), measured at
1 m distance, making the Cryo-Cycle II well suited for application in quiet
laboratory environments.
The new LN2 level sensor probe provides better accuracy. The measured LN2
level is displayed through a continuous LED indicator scale on the front panel,
allowing to better schedule periodic refills.

Cryo-Cycle II Hybrid Cryostat
All controls, connectors and indicators are integrated in a
single front panel for easy access. The Cryo-Cycle II contains
an auto-ranging power supply at 100-240 V and 50-60 Hz. The
front panel is equipped with a DB9-M, a RS-232 and a USB
connector. The DB9-M is a relay output for system status alarms
and autofill functions. The serial connectors are used to connect
to a PC. A dedicated GUI allows remote control and status
monitoring.
The application can be operated in User mode or in
Supervisor mode. The User mode only allows status and
parameter monitoring, while the Supervisor mode, which
can be password protected, allows access to the available
commands. The displayed parameters and status indications
can be continuously logged to a user-selectable .txt-file, saved
on the PC’s hard drive. Also each Cryo-Cycle II can be given
a system name, allowing easy identification when multiple
systems are monitored through the same PC. This name will
be displayed in the application’s title bar.
The Cryo-Cycle II is designed to accommodate both dipstick
and integral configurations. Dipstick versions can be installed
in the field, while integral versions must be assembled at the
factory.
Due to the improved microphonics performance of the
Cryo-Cycle II, when it is sold with a new CANBERRA detector,
there will be NO degradation of the detector’s resolution
performance as stated on the detector’s specification sheet.
If the dipstick version is installed on older CANBERRA
detectors some degradation of resolution performance may
occur, depending on the age and configuration of the detector.
CANBERRA guarantees no resolution degradation at energies
above 500 keV and a maximum of 10% between 100 and
500 keV. Performance is not guaranteed below 100 keV.
For detectors not manufactured by CANBERRA, resolution
performance cannot be guaranteed.
The highly reliable and efficient Pulse-Tube cooler (lifetime of
>75 000 hours) used in the Cryo-Cycle II contains a CFC free
and non-flammable gas. The cooler is hermetically sealed,
so no gas-refill is required. The compressor contains no oil or
lubricant, so no contamination of the refrigerant occurs and
no periodic filter/dryer exchange is required. This makes the
Cryo-Cycle II virtually maintenance free. The nominal power
consumption is very low (250 W), with a maximum of 450 W in
transient operation. The Cryo-Cycle II is designed to operate
between 10 °C and 35 °C.

The GUI is available through a Windows®-based software
application, provided with the Cryo-Cycle II. This application
needs to be installed on a PC connected to the Cryo-Cycle II
through the USB or RS-232 serial ports. Minimum operating
system requirements are Windows XP (SP3) or Windows 7.
CANBERRA’s confidence in the Cryo-Cycle II is demonstrated
by the two year full warranty on the complete system (detector
included when purchased together) and an additional pro-rated
warranty on the cooler. If the cooler fails after the second year,
it will be repaired or replaced at 40, 60 or 80% of the list price in
year three to five respectively. This pro-rated warranty applies
to parts only.
