With a durable and chemically resistant ceramic surface, these digital hotplate, stirrer and hotplate stirrer are the ideal solution for demanding users in all laboratory environments. The minimal footprint (18 x 26 cm) allows their use in crowded spaces such as fume hoods while the 16.5 cm square plate makes these units compatible with a wide range of commonly used vessels such as beakers, bottles and conical flasks. Fast and precise adjustment of speed and temperature is achieved with advanced microprocessor technology, and a large backlit LCD display offers easy viewing of current parameters. A safety LED indicates temperatures over 50°C. An optional external thermometer and support rod allows temperature control of the sample by direct feedback to the microprocessor, maintaining temperature to within ±0.5°C.
