Start Temp End Temp              
+23°C 0°C -10°C -20°C -30°C -35°C -40°C -42°C
+23°C Standard ---- 7 min 11 min 15 min 19 min 23 min 30 min Ultimate
50 Hz Export Version ---- 8 min 13 min 18 min 23 min 28 min 36 min Ultimate
+85°C Standard 13 min 20 min 24 min 28 min 32 min 36 min 45 min Ultimate
50 Hz Export Version 16 min 24 min 29 min 33 min 38 min 43 min 54 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 (empty): From +85°C to -20°C = 105°C / 28 min = 3.75°C/min.
Heat Up Example: From -40°C to +85°C = 125°C / 11 min = 11.36°C/min.

*Note:Transition times are measured after a 30 minute soak at the respective start temperature with an empty chamber, as indicated on the temperature controller, 23°C ambient. Measured with setpoint beyond the start and end temperatures. Does not include the effect of proportional band when approaching setpoint.

NOTE: Performance is typical and based on operation at 23°C (73°F) ambient and nominal input voltage. Designed for use in a normal conditioned laboratory. Operation at higher ambient temperatures will result in decreased cooling performance. Low end limit derates to -38°C when operating above 27°C (80°F) ambient. Operation above 30°C (85°F) or below 16°C (60°F) ambient is not recommended.
