Julabo shaking water baths with seamless, splash-water protected keypad offer a high operating comfort. The bright LED multi-display indicating up to 6 temperature values is visible from across the lab. Advanced microprocessor technology with PID temperature control eliminates temperature overshoot and provides high temperature stability. The built-in timer simplifies time-dependent applications. The RS232 interface allows on-line communication with PC. Sensitive samples in the bath are well protected: As soon as the high and low temperature limits are reached an interval tone sounds. If the liquid in the bath reaches a minimum, a complete shut-down is effected and a permanent signal tone sounds. Instruments are conceived for unsupervised continuous operation. Bath tanks and all parts in contact with the bath liquid are made of high-grade stainless steel.
