The SQUID electronics can conveniently be operated by the touchpanel which serves as the control interface for the user. By simply touching the control fields of the touchpanel screen, the user may conveniently adjust the working points and flux locked loop parameters of all SQUID channels. The working points of the sensors can be conveniently saved in the non-volatile memory of the controller. The factory settings of the working points can always be recovered. No computer connection is needed for touchpanel operation.
