Developed with best engineering practices, the TC and TCH Series are highly-efficient, modular design, environmental test chambers with components from globally recognized manufacturers, such as Bitzer, GEA BOCK, Danfoss, Emerson, Castel and Siemens for maximum reliability and performance.

Temperature/Humidity System

  • Temperature Control – Optimized high-volume airflow system for improved controllability within chamber. Better airflow accelerates temperature change rates and minimizes temperature gradients of the device under test.

  • Humidity Control – The innovative design of the humidifier and air duct combined with a solid-state sensor assures high-accuracy and reduced maintenance.

  • Cooling Unit - The highly efficient and reliable cooling system has advanced features including a low-noise compressor, environmentally friendly refrigerant; nitrogen protected oxidation-free welding, advanced design, pneumatic and hydraulic adjustment, evaporation temperature adjustment.

  • Reduced Maintenance – A drawer-type water reservoir located in the front of the chamber with a water valve at the bottom of the reservoir, low-water level warning indication, nylon dust-proof filter located in front of condenser (removable from left side for cleaning), and centralized drainage for condensate water facilitate cleaning and reduce maintenance costs.

Operation and Control

  • Operation – The TC300 controller is a standard feature on all chambers and provides the ultimate in chamber performance and control stability. The 7” color touchscreen and user-friendly interface combine to simplify programming and reduce setup time and cost. The control software makes it easy to control the system manually or automatically.

  • Precision – The TC300 controller is a proven, third generation control system offering precise control, user convenience and enhanced functionality.

  • Safety – The TC300 controller includes built-in security and safety features to protect personnel, equipment and product under test. Power cut-off is password protected.

  • Communication – The TC300 controller offers a variety communication protocols that includes TCP/IP, USB and RS232.

  • Data Storage – TC300 controller internal memory allows for up to one year of data storage.
