The variable names for these sample environments are only available when the sample environment is connected to the system via the terminal server in the Experiments Hutch.

If you're using the capillary stage, it's worth typing linkam.disableDSC() prior to data collection, as this will prevent the system from searching for DSC data that isn't being produced by the capillary stage.
There is a new form of control for the linkam supporting multiple ramps. It is recommended that users use this new form of control.
Two ramps are set up starting from the current temperature, whatever that is. The first ramp is with 5 deg/min to 45 deg. The second goes at 15 deg/min to 60 deg. The first ramp does not collect data only sets the starting temperature.
If you want to pause at a temperature, just put a ramp in with the same target temperature and the number of seconds to wait as the rate value. The above is set up for a 30 sec wait at the end
This sets the interval for the collection of DSC/Temperature data points from the Linkam and also sets the trigger point for x-ray data collection. The collection time is the time between the start of two consequtive detector exposures in seconds. You should set this to something bigger than the Tfg configured total frame time. The collection time needs to be, depending on detectors between 0.2 and 5 seconds shorter then the lrm4k collection interval. (1 works for most set ups).
As withg many of these data collections you can include a title by using the following
scan lrm4k lrm4k ncddetectors
This runs the experiment using whatever is set in ncddetectors.
The scan will then run the ramps and collect images.
If you want to know how many steps it will collect type

Alternative (Old) Version
scan linkam 25 75 5 ncddetectors
This form will perform a stepwise ramp from 25 to 75 deg and at each 5 deg increment carry out whatever is included in the ncddetectors configuration.
