Micro Temperature Controller




Four MTC-1 Micro Temperature Controllers set-up with perfusion syringes


MTC-1 Micro Temperature Controller
  • Control Range of ambient to 99.9C
  • 110 to 230V AC line operation
  • Resolution 0.1C




Recent interest in a simple low cost temperature controller to maintainsmall and medium sized objects atphysiological temperatures was there a soning behind the development of the Physitemp MTC-1 microtempera-ture controller.  Utilizing a precisionhighly stable platinum RTD as thefeedback sensor, this inexpensive controller will display and maintain a set temperature within + or - 0.1degrees Centigrade.  The controller is designed to operate from a 12V DCsupply and can control an output current up to 4 Amperes (50 Watts).  It can also be used with an input voltage between 6 and 24V DC for both lower and higher power applications (up to 90 Watts).  A 1/2 inch backlit LCD readout provides continuous display of temperature with 0.1 degree resolution.  The set point is easily adjusted from just above room temperature up to 99.9 degrees C via a 20 turn potentiometer.  A momentary switch allows the user to toggle the display between the set and run temperatures. The controller is ideal for maintaining the temperature of 60cc perfusion syringes and small heated surfaces. Its compact size (5 1/2 long x 2wide x 1 deep) makes it ideal where space is at a premium.
