   TestEquity Model 115A Temperature Chamber - Detailed Specifications

<< Back to Product Page 

Temperature Range -73°C to +175°C
Control Tolerance ±0.2°C (Measured at the control sensor after stabilization)
Uniformity ±1.0°C (Variations throughout the chamber after stabilization)
Heat Up Transition Time* 5°C/minute typical
Cool Down Rate of Change* 2.8°C/minute from +85°C to -40°C (standard 60 Hz models)
2.1°C/minute from +85°C to -40°C (115A-EX 50 Hz export models)
Cool Down Transition Time*
Start Temp End Temp
+23°C 0°C -40°C -55°C -65°C -73°C
+23°C ----- 5 min 20 min 30 min 40 min Ultimate
+85°C 16 min 25 min 45 min 57 min 69 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 +85°C to -40°C = 125°C / 45 min = 2.78°C/min.

*Note: Transition times are measured after a 1 hour 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. Measured at nominal line voltage of 120V, 60 Hz. Performance is reduced on 115A-EX 50 Hz export versions.

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.
