VWR International Offers Heated and Refrigerated Laboratory Circulators with Upgraded Electronic Design
WEST CHESTER, PA, September, 2003 - VWR International, a global distributor of scientific supplies, now offers VWR(TM) and VWR Signature(TM) heated and refrigerated circulators featuring newly enhanced electronics that allow easier, more intuitive and more user-friendly programming and control of the units. Other new design features include relocation of the redundant over-temperature and low liquid level detection safety to the front of the control panel to permit easier access. Also, all refrigerated models now contain a purge port for bleeding inert gas, such as nitrogen, to form a blanket over the circulator's bath, greatly reducing or eliminating condensation.
The VWR(TM) heated and refrigerated circulators are available with the choice of four different upgraded controller designs:
o Analog Controller - This economical unit uses a clear, skirted dial to reduce the effects of parallax and permit more accurate temperature setting.
o Standard Controller - Features a larger, green LED readout as well as three user-defined presets to facilitate temperature set for different applications.
o Digital Controller - This controller features a full, backlit, graphic, multi-language display, 0.01ºC stability, five-speed duplex pump and an RS232 interface. The display features a single knob encoder that guides the user through simple-to-understand programs and control of parameters.
o Programmable Controller - Offers all the same features of the Digital Controller, and adds convenient time/temperature ramping programmability and remote temperature capability. The controller can store up to 10 programs of 50 steps each. Microsoft® Excel macros, National Instruments LabVIEW® drivers and Palm OS® software are included for optimum versatility.
