Heating & Cooling Temperature controller BTC-1-100, BTC-2-100

Can be used with Temperature controlled microscope stages, heated and cooled. Low electrical noise, heating and cooling temperature controller for microscope stages.
BTC-2-100 controller includes an independent second channel for objective heaters/coolers or perfusion TC-RD unit.
  • External Bath probes and internal Stage temperature sensor
  • Automatically switches from Heating to Cooling
  • Temperature Set manually (or externally BTC-2-100 only)
  • Over-heating protection prevents damage to your sample
  • Does not introduce electrical noise during recordings
  • Standby mode 
  • Analog output to monitor temperature, and input to SET temperature (BTC-2-100 only)
  • RS232 port to monitor temperature, and to SET temperature (BTC-2-100 only)
  • Plastic-encapsulated external probes: no metal ions leakage into solutions

Most heating and cooling stages work as inline solution pre-heaters. Can be used with flow control and perfusion systems. Includes connecting cables. An external temperature probe might be needed, to monitor bath temperature for example. Incorporates an internal power supply: 12V is suitable for TC-RD and objective coolers,  24V is required for larger cooling stages.



-80 to 150C with accuracy 0.1C

Temperature probes:

miniature 0.87mm diameter; fits small volume chambers;


flexible, allow to stabilize temperature in different sample volumes and heating stage sizes


STAGE (or External BATH probe for BTC-2-100 only)


100-240VAC/4A max, 140W with 35V inside power supply
