"Ministats are exceptionally compact and powerful thermostats. The bath opening is large enough to allow small objects to be thermoregulated inside but the small filling volume allows exceptionally rapid heating and cooling rates to be achieved. The optional displacement inserts can reduce the bath volume further by approximately 50% amplifying this effect and reducing moisture absorption through exposed surface areas. A powerful variable speed pressure/suction pump allows the Ministats to be used for internal or external applications. The maximum pressure can be controlled using an optional pressure sensor, VPC (variable pressure control), which protects delicate glassware. All models have Active Cooling Control for cooling power control at the maximum working temperature and an automatic cooling power regulation for energy saving operation and reduced heat dissipation into the lab. Compliance with DIN 12876-1, class 3 allows them to be used unsupervised in continual operation. The maximum ambient temperature is 40 °C. The CC-Pilot with Plug & Play-Technology allows the ministat to be remotely controlled with a data cable. A colour graphic TFT display, state of the art microprocessor controller and a high precision temperature measurement system offer exact and reproducible temperature control. Ministats can be fitted with a ComG@te (NAMUR Standard) and so be integrated in a process control system. Typical applications for the smallest cooling thermostat in the world are external closed systems e.g. photometer, refractometer and viscosimeter"
