Compact Orbital Mixing Chilling/Heating Dry Baths for automation are designed for use on Robotic Systems.  There are two models available, the Model RSC40-96 and the Model RSC40-384.  The RSC40-96 is for a 96-well PCR plate and the RSC40-384 is for a 384-well PCR plate.  As such, they are compact, self contained units  with a repeatable stopping point to +/- 0.25 mm to avoid needle breakage.  The orbit is 1 mm.  The settable temperature range is from -5.0 C to 100.0 C.  Mixing speeds are from 200 rpm to 3000 rpm displayed to 10 rpm.

The units run from 12 volts DC .  Power may be provided from a universal bench top power supply that comes with the unit or from the robotic systems power source.  The unit is supplied with an RS232 cable for connecting the unit to a PC or the MIC40 Controller.  The system serial command set is also provided.  The MIC40 Remote Controller can be purchased as an accessory.  The unit also has an LED which illuminates when a target temperature is set.  The LED flashes until the target temperature is reached and is stable.  When the temperature is stable then the LED will stop flashing and will hold steady.
