- Can the leads in the headstage DIN connector be repaired?
Yes. While we can make a repair at the factory, it is a simple enough task that the user can make a repair on-site.The connector used for most Warner devices (amplifiers, temperature controllers, etc.) are known as DIN type connectors. They can be opened by removing the set-screw on the side and ...
- Can the SH-27B be used at flow rates less than 2ml/min?
The SH-27B is designed to work at flow rates of 2-10 ml/min. You can use it at flow rates of less than 2 ml/min, however, the heater is robust and will boil solutions when used at very slow flow rates or in a stopped-flow condition.As an alternative, the SF-28 in-line solution heater is designed ...
- Can the TC-202A be used to regulate the temperature of Warner's in-line solution heaters, dish heaters and syringe warmers, or Series 20 platforms?
No, since the TC-202A designed for Medical Systems products, it is not compatible with Warner products. The Warner TC-324B/TC-344B, however, has an adapter that makes it compatible with Medical Systems products.
- Can the Warner temperature controllers be used with the BSC2 interface chamber from AutoMate Scientific Inc.?
No, the power requirements for the Automate product are significantly different from the products we carry.
- Does the CC-28 interface cable work with both the TC-344A and the TC-344B?
Yes. The CC-28 interface cable is compatible with all Warner heater controllers. This includes both A and B models of the TC-324 and TC-344.
- Does Warner sell replacement fuses for the CL-100 temperature controller?
No, but the ones needed are commonly available. (Try Radio Shack)For 120V applications use a 0.8A slo-blo fuse, and for 220V applications use a 0.4A slo-blo fuse.
- How can the temperature within an inline solution heater or cooler be monitored?
Warner's inline solution heaters (e.g., SH-27B, SF-28) and inline solution heater/coolers (e.g., SC-20) contain a built-in feedback thermistor and so do not require a separate thermistor for setting and monitoring the control temperature.A temperature control unit (e.g., TC-324B, TC-344B, CL-10 ...
- How can Warner temperature controllers be adjusted for 120V or 240V operation?
Warner temperature controllers use a 'universal' power entry module which allows for manual selection of the input line voltage. (The adjustment location can be found next to where the power plug connects on the rear panel.) In addition to switching the voltage to the desired value, the correct ...
- Is it normal for the TA-29 thermister to fail after a few years of use?
The TA-29 thermister can fail due to either mechanical or chemical damage Mechnical failure is often due to 'crunching' of the thermister or, more commonly, breaking of the leads from repeated flexing. Chemical failure can result, over time, from exposure to strong electrolytes (e.g. potassium s ...
- Is it possible to adapt the TC-202A to be used with the RC-50 chamber?
Unfortunately, the TC-202 is not compatible with Warner temperature control devices.
- Is it possible to overheat a heated platform?
Heated platforms use a feedback thermistor (the big white one on the CC-28 cable) that is placed into the platform body. With this thermistor in place the controller will not allow the platform to overheat.In any case, heating a platform beyond what the controller will allow will not cause any a ...
- Is it possible to tell if there is a loose connection inside the TC-324B/344B controller unit?
To check the integrity of the cable, please do the tests suggested in the attachment.There is also a simple test to check if the TC-324B or TC-344B is properly calibrated. Begin by bridging the BNC input on the rear panel of the controller with a 10 kohm precision resistor. The meter should read ...
- Is the CL-100 rack-mountable?
Unfortunately, the CL-100 is not rack mountable. The dual channel CL-200 is rack mountable, however.
- Is there a hand held thermistor temperature monitor that is compatible with the TA-29 bead thermistor?
Yes, the TM-3 Three-scale Thermistor Temperature Monitor is a hand held device compatible with the TA-29 bead thermistor. More information can be found on our website.
- What is a modular connector?
The term modular connector is the name given to a family of electrical connectors originally used in telephone wiring and are now used for a variety of other things as well. Advantages of modular connectors include small size and ease of connecting. Many devices that originally used a bulkier co ...
- what is the difference between the CL-100 and the TC-202A Temperature Controllers?
The CL-100 and TC-202A are both bipolar temperature controllers, but they are targeted towards different product lines. The CL-100 can control all Warner bipolar (Peltier driven) devices. It can also provide temperature control for the SH-828 eight line solution heater in which 8 separate lines ...
- What is the difference between the TC-102 and the TC-202?
The TC-102 is a legacy instrument designed as a monopolar device (+V only) for regulating the temperature of resistive heating elements. This device is no longer made and is superseded by the TC-202 family of controllers.The TC-202A is a more sophisticated instrument that can actually switch bet ...
- What is the VA (wattage) of the CL-100?
The VA is 80 watts.
- What is the VA (wattage) of the CL-200?
The VA is a maximum of 200 watts.
- What is the VA (wattage) of the TC-124A?
The VA is 46 watts.
