EchoTherm™ RIC20 Peltier-driven, compact chilling/heating temperature stages.

Torrey Pines Scientific has announced its EchoTherm™ RIC20 Peltier-driven, compact Chilling/Heating Temperature Stages settable from -20.0ºC to 110.0ºC.

These units are designed for remote controlled applications on robotic systems. Any number of units can be set to any single temperature via a single computer serial port.

The unit(s) will continue to run the temperature instructed, even without a hardwire connection, until told otherwise.

The RIC20 Series are compact and designed to take up as little space as possible on a robot platform. The units measure 6.5” (165 mm) long by 4.75” (120 mm) wide by 3.5” (89 mm) tall without a sample block.

Offered as accessories is the broadest variety of precision-made aluminum sample blocks available anywhere for standard assay plates, deep-well assay plates, centrifuge tubes of all sizes, vials, and most any size test tube. Custom sample blocks can be made for any sample container by request.

The RIC20 Series can be set to 0.1ºC and control temperature to ±0.1ºC. Temperature settings are stable to ±0.2ºC and accurate to ±0.5ºC.

Each unit comes complete with chiller/heater module, universal power supply, AC line cord for the country of use, and instructions including the Serial Port Command Set.

The EchoTherm™ RIC20 Series units are UL, CSA, and CE compliant.
