The RCT basic is suitable for stirring tasks up to 20L (H2O), and reaches a hotplate temperature of up to 310°C. With the connection option for an external temperature sensor (PT 1000.60 included in delivery), the temperature can be measured and controlled directly in the reaction medium.

Thanks to perfect insulation of the aluminum heating plate, maintenance-free EC motor and electronic switching power supply, the RCT basic features excellent energy efficiency as well as reduced self-heating of the heating plate during stirring operation, thus contributing to a more sustainable laboratory.

The latest generation of RCT basic presents itself in proven quality and with numerous new features

  • Tempered shatterproof glass surface for optimal chemical resistance and easy cleaning
  • Largest display in its class with easy-to-read LED display
  • Illuminated symbols for displaying important status information (set and actual temperature, heating status, temperature sensor
  • USB and RS232 interface for control or documentation of the test parameters via a PC
  • Compatible with labworldsoft® laboratory software
  • QR code for quick access to device information, accessories, downloads and extended warranty
  • Easily accessible main switch on the front of the device

Proven technology

  • Heating plate made of aluminum for optimal and homogeneous heat transfer
  • Excellent magnetic coupling
  • Soft start prevents magnetic stir bars from breaking off during the start phase
  • Two optimized temperature control modes ensure fast heating or precise temperature control without overshooting
  • Push and turn buttons for independent adjustment of the set points and starting / stopping of temperature and speed

Safe, robust and compliant with standards
 In accordance with the DIN EN 61010-2-010 standard, it meets all safety requirements for laboratory equipment for heating substances and is therefore also suitable for unattended operation.
