High stability, no noise Precision Temperature Controller TC-1-100i to operate miniature incubators

Easy to use and flexible controls for stable operation.  Independent second channel for the incubator lid. Can be used with Temperature controlled microscope stages..
  • Plastic-encapsulated external probes (optional): no metal ions leakage into solutions
  • Stability 0.01C, self-adjusting
  • Built-in overheating protection
  • Analog and RS232 Inputs for programmed temperature changes: allows computer control using any software (LabView for example)
  • Analog Outputs to monitor temperature
  • No vibrations during imaging and recording - no internal fan.
Designed to operate miniature incubators by utilizing channel I to independently heat the lid, and channel II the base of the incubator. Includes connecting cables. An external temperature probe might be needed to monitor bath temperature, inside Petri dish for example. Sample publications.



up to 150C with accuracy 0.1C

Temperature probe:

miniature 0.87mm diameter (optional)


0.01C, self-adjusting; required for sensitive applications: nano/piezo positioning, confocal imaging for example


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