Cat Scientific - MCS 77 Hotplate/Stirrer, Programmable, 120V 60Hz

With modern microprocessor technology advancing, self monitoring and programmable magnetic stirrers found their way into today’s labs. The RS485 interface provides a means for networking with other lab equipment or a computer. A 5-step timer system allows for generation of user–defined temperature and stirring profiles. Hotplate and probe temperature, motor speed and temperature slope can be defined for each timer step.
M 26G2 unit has been developed for discerning users who value safety as paramount in their laboratories. A second PT100 sensor can be connected to the M 26G2 to switch off the unit if preset safety temperature is reached.

Programmable magnetic stirrer with a 5-stage multifunctional timer that enables the execution time, the temperature setpoints, the temperature gradient and the motor speed to be set separately for each timer step and thus to create user-specific heat ramping and stirring profiles. A number of active and passive safety functions protect both the device and the medium.
