PCTC1001 Temperature Controller


The temperature setting for the PCTC1001 is programmable. The controller is usually grouped with CH-16 Cubic Heater and TP Series Temperature Platform to heat a perfusion system and maintain the temperature at a desired level in a working chamber. It can also be connected with TS-01 Test Point Sensor to monitor the temperature. It is an essential instrument for an electrophysiology research laboratory, especially for the laboratory equipped with patch clamp system.

Performance Introduction.

1.Easy for the user to set the desired temperature

The PCTC1001 temperature controller provides a maximum of 25W of heating power into a 4 ohms load, and the set temperature is programmed by either external or internal modes. The desired temperature could be easily set by rotating the TEMP SETTING knob when internal mode is selected, as well as conveniently set by an external input voltage calibrated to 100mV /℃ when external mode is selected. The accuracy of temperature control is usually better than ± 0.5℃ and under ideal conditions will be close to ± 0.1℃.

2.Distinctive Features

Both the set temperature and the feedback temperature are displayed individually and simultaneously on the front panel, and no manual selection or switching is required. It is convenient for users to operate the device and read the temperature measurements. The PCTC1001 temperature controller can automatically save the user’s last valid setting after the setup parameters have been completed and stabilized for more than 30 seconds.

Its built-in thermistor fault protection automatically prevents the in-line heater from overheating in the event of a sensor failure. An external communication cable provides a flexible method for remotely controlling the set temperature.

3.Real-Time Temperature Recording

The dual sensor continuously monitors real-time temperatures. The in-line thermistor and test point sensor can regulate the heater via an independent feedback loop. The TS-03 Test Point Sensor can also be used simply as a probe to measure the temperature at any point of interest. The measured temperatures are displayed on the front panel of the PCTC1001 temperature controller or can be read by other devices connected to the EXT COM port on the rear panel.
