npi electronic TC-10 temperature control system
Designed for heating purposes in electrophysiological experiments.
Guarantees low noise
Special protection features
Prevents the preparation from damage
Cooling elements for the power devices
Housed in a 19" standard rackmount cabinet.
Incorporates two electronic thermometers for small semiconductor sensors (R2252, i.e. the sensor has a resistance of 2252 Ohms at 25 °C), two digital temperature displays (XX.X °C), a set-point control with direct readout (XX.X °C), a PI (proportional-integral) controller with adjustable parameters, an output power control unit and a high-power output stage (DC, continuous operation) for resistive ( i.e. heat only) loads with electronic protection circuits. The power output is short circuit protected, the output power is limited electronically.
Maximal output voltage is approximately 12 V, the current is limited to 2.5 A.
The TC-10 controller is delivered with a power cord and a user manual. Sensors must be purchased separately.
