  • Designed for efficient high-temperature use with minimal maintenance
  • Choice of single setpoint or programmable control
  • Side swing door provides full and easy access to chamber, protects user from heat surge
  • Atmosphere port, 0.375in. diameter, for fresh air or inert gas inlet (located at back wall, bottom)
  • Solid-state power module with ammeter, circuit breaker, transformer and front panel indicator lights for “Ready Element” and “Main Power Applied”
  • Safety power disconnect switch cuts power to heating elements when door is opened
  • Moldatherm™ high-temperature ceramic fiber insulation with advanced graded design for fast heat-up and resistance to thermal shock
  • Moldatherm hearthplate supports load and protects chamber from spills or mishandling
  • High-volume cooling fans move air between inner and outer chamber to reduce exterior shell temperatures and improve energy efficiency and operator safety
  • Long-life type “B” thermocouples with 10ft. compensated lead wire and polarized plug for accurate high-temperature measurement
  • Removable panels for easy access to replaceable heating elements and thermocouples

Smart Heating Elements

  • Molybdenum disilicide elements with unique right-angle bend and sidewall mounting reduce maintenance usually associated with element termination and mounting
  • Designed for easy replacement without matching resistance values
  • Fast heat-up and recovery with excellent uniformity and energy efficiency
  • Increased resistance to thermal shock, ideal for rapid cycling over extended periods

Overtemperature Control (OTC)†

  • Adjustable digital overtemperature control protects furnace and load in the event of primary control circuit failure
  • Overrides main controller and shuts off power to furnace if high limit is reached
  • Manual reset required for safety
  • Operates via signal from independent thermocouple

Programmable Controller With Communications (COM Models)

  • With RS-485 data port (communications card and port) for connection to remote computer
  • Enables modification, interrogation and data transfer of instrument control and configuration parameters
  • Up to 30 units can be connected to one PC

Digital Multiple Program, Multiple Segment Programmable Controller

  • Microprocessor-based PID control (proportional, integral, derivative) prevents overshoot
  • Multiple programs and segments for ramp (up and down) and dwell (timed hold) temperature control
  • Simultaneous digital LED display of actual temperature vs. setpoint in either °C or °F

Digital Single-Setpoint Controller

  • Microprocessor-based PID control (proportional, integral, derivative) prevents overshoot
  • Single segment, single setpoint, one ramp to setpoint
  • Adjustable high limit overtemperature protection
  • Simultaneous LED display of actual temperature vs. setpoint in either °C or °F
