There are two models.  The IN55 is fully programmable and the IN50 is simple digital.  Chamber size for both is 100 liters.  They are settable form 4.0ºC to 70.0ºC and feature PID temperature control to ± 0.1°C, digital display to 0.1ºC, and accuracy to ± 0.2ºC.

They have RS232 I/O port for remote control and data collection, digital timer in hours, minutes and seconds with user settable Auto-Off, temperature ramping on programmable models, and audible alarms.

Chamber size is 24" high by 20" deep by 14" wide and come with eight stainless steel racks with room for twelve.  Racks are split, front to back, in the middle for variety of sample sizes. 

The units are shipped with universal power supplies that take AC line inputs from 100VAC to 265VAC, 50/60 Hz and converts that to 12 volts DC for the unit, AC line cord for the country of use, user=s manual and full 12-month warranty.

The IN50 and IN55 are UL, CSA, and CE compliant.
