0C 1.5 min 3.5 min 13 min 20 min 23 min Ultimate
-40C 6 min 11 min 17 min 24 min 30 min Ultimate
-55C 8 min 13 min 19 min 26 min 32 min Ultimate

Rate Of Change

To calculate rate of change for a particular condition, take the difference between the Start Temp and End Temp and divide by the Transition Time.
Cool Down Example: From +50C to -40C = 90C / 27 min = 3.33C/min.
Heat Up Example: From -40C to +50C = 90C / 11 min = 8.18C/min.

*Note: Transition times are measured after a 2 hour soak at the respective start temperature with an empty chamber, as indicated on the temperature controller, 23C ambient. Measured with setpoint beyond the start and end temperatures. Does not include the effect of proportional band when approaching setpoint. Performance is reduced by 17% with 50 Hz input power.

Refrigeration and Heating System

High Stage Refrigerant R-404A (Dupont HP-62)
Low Stage Refrigerant R-508B (Dupont SUVA-95)
Compressors 1.5 HP x 1.5 HP Tecumseh hermetic compressors in a cascade configuration.
Condenser Air Cooled
Heat of Rejection 14,800 BTUH (maximum rated chamber load at maximum cooling rate from high temperature soak)
Heater Power 2,000 Watts


Temperature Controller Watlow F4 Controller with RS-232 interface, LED readout of temperature, LCD display of other parameters (standard).
Watlow F4T Touch Screen Controller with RS-232, Ethernet interface, 4.3" color graphic touch screen (optional).
Chart Recorder   (Optional) Honeywell DR4300 Series. One pen, 10" circular chart. Mounts in lower front door.

Input Power Requirements

  Phase Current Draw Minimum Service
230 V 10%, 60 Hz 1 PH 25 A 30 A
3 PH 19 A 25 A
208 V -5/+10%, 60 Hz 1 PH 28 A 35 A
3 PH 21 A 30 A

Input may be configured for single or three phase in the field by changing jumpers. Three phase load is semi-balanced. Call for 50 Hz operation. Cooling performance is reduced 17% at 50 Hz.

Customer power source must be hard-wired to the chamber by a qualified electrician. Power cord and plug is not included.

Weight Chamber Weight: 850 pounds
Shipping Weight: 1,011 pounds
Sound Level 62 dBA in cooling mode (A-weighted, measured 36" from the front or side surface, 63" from the floor, in a free-standing environment)

NOTE: Performance is typical and based on operation at 23C (73F) ambient and nominal input voltage. Designed for use in a normal conditioned laboratory. Operation at higher ambient temperatures may result in decreased cooling performance. Additional ports and shelves will also affect performance. Operation above 30C (85F) or below 16C (60F) ambient is not recommended.
