MicroClimate® Test Chamber Options

Listed below are the options that are available on our MicroClimate® environmental testing chambers.

Cabinet Options
MC-3 Viewing Window A multi-pane window and light allows for easy product viewing.
Benchtop Cart A cart is available for MicroClimate® benchtop models that allow you to easily move the chamber throughout your lab.
Benchtop Stacked Cart A cart is available specifically when MicroClimate® benchtop models will be stacked, allowing you to easily move the chamber throughout your lab.
Access Port Additional circular ports available for ease of cable routing.
Cable Notch If routing cables through side ports is not an option for you, a cable notch may be placed in the front of your chamber.
Chamber Shelf Additional product shelves are available for each CSZ chamber. Custom shelves and fixtures are also available.

Humidity Options
Recirculator Water For customers that do not have a deionized water supply, we provide a recirculating water system that collects condensate from the chamber, stores it and then filters it in a reservoir for reuse.
Water Pressure Regulator Water pressure regulator is recommended to regulate incoming water supply to <=25 psig.
Reverse Osmosis Water purification system for use with city / tap water. This option is not needed if chamber has demineralizer filter system.

Instrumentation Options
Watlow F4 Controller The Watlow F4 Programmable Controller comes with 256 segment profiling, looping, guaranteed soak, product monitor, and RS-232/485 Computer Interface for communications. Includes an automatic tuning function and product thermocouple to accurately measure part temperature.
Chamber High/Low Limit Provides essential failsafe over/under (hi/low) temperature protection for your valuable test items.
IEEE Communications A parallel interface can be provided for interface with IEEE-488 parallel instrument control buss. A standard IEEE-488 connector is provided for easy connection to adjacent test equipment. This option cannot be used in conjunction with RS-232/RS-485 communications.
Circulator Chart Recorder A selection of one or two pen chart recorders are available with a variety of pre-printed charts or self printing thermal charts.
Run Time Meter The optional run time meter includes a non-resettable display which will accumulate the system running time for routine maintenance and planning purposes.
Main Power Disconnect Provides an additional level of safety by shutting down the main power to the chamber prior to maintenance or repair.

Performance & Refrigeration Options
LN2 Boost Option Boost cooling is available for applications that require a fast pulldown rate. An LN2 supply tank is required with a pressure of 25 psi.
Dry Air Purge A dry air purge system can be provided to reduce condensation within the chamber and on the test item during temperature cycling testing. This option is primarily used to prevent short circuits in electronic components and is also used for low humidity requirements.
