Description

The TCSS-1 is a high precision controller that uses an advanced PID algorithm to minimise variability and overshoot of the heating and cooling profile. The unit also includes a self-adjustment function to monitor product temperature with feedback being provided to the controller through a PT100 sensor or a K-type thermocouple.

The programmable TCSS-1 has a heating and cooling range from -100ºC  to +550℃. Data entry and parameter control is through a 5" TFT true colour touch screen with LED backlight.

The TCSS-1 uses electromagnetic functionality to provide a stirring speed range from 5 rpm - 750 rpm. Speed is adjusted by a single dial and the controller features "Synchrostart" that maintains linkage between the magnetic field and the stir bar. The mantle-controller connection cord allows the controller to be placed outside a fume hood to protect it from corrosive atmospheres.

The TCSS also features an adjustable safety temperature range that can be set through a separate control panel.
