CF1200 series muffle furnaces feature the famous Kanthal (Sweden) spiral wire coils embedded in Mitsubishi (Japan) high quality alumina fiber insulation. A double walled steel internal housing helps minimize heat loss to exterior surface.
Furnace operation is controlled by Shimaden (Japan) 40-segment digital controller with built-in RS485 digital communications port and USB adaptor, allowing the user to connect to a PC for remote control and monitoring of the furnace. You can also save or export test results.
~ Microprocessor based self-tuning PID control provides optimum thermal process with minimal overshoot.
~ Built-in ammeter and dual voltmeters for easy monitoring and troubleshooting.
~ Built-in computer interface.
~ Long life type K thermocouple.
~ UL, CSA and CE certified, standard
~ Overheat protection shuts down the furnace if temperature is outside of acceptable range (refer to controller's manual) or when the thermocouple is broken or malfunctions.
~ Power failure protection resumes furnace operation right after the point of failure when power is reestablished.
*** Chooose to upgrade to the large chamber (12"W x 16"D x 12"H) for an extra fee. ***
