In order for our thermal station to function, we needed a software able to monitor and control all of the devices simultaneously along with the input power of the Watlow cartridges, as well as take measurements and create graphs altogether. In order to achieve all these functions, we compiled our own custom software which is capable of automatically testing the cooler's performance and take readings at up to four adjustable power levels, plus automatically export all results to a Microsoft Office Excel file. Furthermore, our software will automatically cancel all testing if the core temperature exceeds 120°C, the melting point of a real processor. Finally, it has a manual mode for exact testing and is fully adjustable / customizable to meet with any future modifications and / or upgrades.
