We are trying to interface Lakeshore 335 controller with Keithley 4200 SCS System. As the drivers for 335 temperature controller is not available we tried to connect 335 controller using the 336 drivers and surprisingly we are able to connect 335 controller using these 336 drivers. Even we are able to operate both the channels but both channels behaves differently when we operate it from Keithley KITE software.
Using the Software we are able to operate the Channel 1 and Channel 2 both but when we operate channel 1 thenFront panel of the controller displays "No Output" which is shown in the attached image 1 and we are not able to set the Ramp Rate in Channel 1. Controller is taking some default value and For channel 2 all the functionalities are working as per our Input. We are also able to set the ramp rate in Channel 2. Channel 2 functionalities are shown in the attached image 2.
We want the same functionalities in channel 1 but it is not happening hence can you please help us to get the same functionalities like channel 2 using KITE Software.

At this time, Lake Shore does not support the Model 335 Controller on the Keithley B4200 SCS System. Although you are using the Model 336 Drivers, there are enough differences that you may encounter other issues. At this time, we have no plans to offer Model 335 drivers for the B4200 system.
The reason you have the No Output message showing is that you are displaying information for channel A and you have not associated Output 2 with channel A. In order to see Output information using the Channel A display mode, you need to assign Channel A to Output 2 since you have channel B assigned to Output 1.
