THE TCAT-2 ANIMAL TEMPERATURE CONTROLLERS FROM PHYSITEMP

The new TCAT-2 family of general purpose PID autotuning controllers provides accurate temperature control in a variety of laboratory applications.

  • High accuracy and resolution for temperature control applications

  • Controls heating blankets, heat lamps, or heating pads

  • Can be used for both heating and cooling applications

  • Secondary feedback sensor provides true temperature control

THE TCAT-2 ANIMAL TEMPERATURE CONTROLLERS

Accuracy – Resolution – Control

Resolution ± 0.1°C and Accuracy ± 0.5°C across all models

Control range of -100 to +400°C

110 to 230 V line operation

Advanced Temperature Feedback & Display

Secondary feedback sensor allows true temperature monitoring

Dual display of Set and Run temperatures

Primary feedback sensor prevents temperature exceeding 43°C (TCAT-2DF and TCAT-2LV models).

Temperature Controller Range & Versatility

Precise temperature control and feedback sensing - designed for use with any size animals - compatible with multiple probes and pads

TCAT-2AC:

Model for use with AC powered heating or cooling devices, such as a heat lamp.

TCAT-LV:

Model provides a low-voltage DC output for electrically sensitive applications.

TCAT-2DF:

Model has both an AC outlet for controlling primarily resistance loads such as heat lamps and AC powered warming blankets -- and a low-voltage low-noise DC output for heating pads.

Accessories

Heat Lamp, HL-1

Optional infrared heat lamp is table mountable with an adjustable swing arm, 2 spring loaded arms each 18” in length, 250 watt infrared heat lamp bulb

Heating Plate, HP-1M, HP-4M

Optional direct current heating plate for small rodents, black anodized aluminum, provided with primary sensor to prevent overheating

Warming Blanket, WB-1, WB-2

2 sizes of optional flexible blankets for use with the TCAT-2LV and TCAT-2DF controllers, includes primary sensor and over temperature protection

Because temperature is a fundamental variable which affects all biological and chemical activity, Physitemp’s precison temperature products find applications in a wide array of technical situations.
