Covered Programmable Hotplate

Covered Programmable Hotplate


  • Dyesol pre-printed TEC8 & TEC15 Glass Plates
  • Dyesol DSC Laboratory Solution


Use the Programmable Hotplate to fire working and counter electrodes on Dye Solar cells

Description & Benefits

The Programmable Hotplate provides a consistent, controllable and reliable heat source for the firing of small working and counter electrodes for the production of test cells.

The Programmable Hotplate includes ramp timing and temperature controls. The key benefit to users of the Programmable Hotplate is that it can be programmed to precisely control the machine – an essential factor for achieving consistent, reliable results. Up to 32 temperature steps can be programmed and each temperature step can incorporate a ramp time or constant temperature time.

The Programmable Hotplate surface is high quality nickel plating; it is also highly robust and durable for use in any busy lab.

Safety glass window – protects user during operation while providing excellent view. Dust Absorber to collect harmful dust particles produced during the blasting process
FeaturesDescriptionBenefit / Additional Information
Temperature Range Up to 600°C Allows a full range of temperatures for firing DSC materials
Substrate Sizes 230mm x 160mm Accommodates from test cells up to tile size electrodes
Temperature Uniformity Due to the large thermal capacity of the Programmable Hotplate, the temperature uniformity, once stabilised is ±5% except within 10mm of the edge Temperature uniformity ensures precise user control of the firing temperatures, essential for achieving consistent results
Programmable Timing

-         Up to 5 temperature steps

-         Temperature steps incorporate a ramp time and constant temperature time

-               Time range: both ramp and constant time up to 9 hours 59 minutes in 1 minute intervals
The programmable timing function with 5 temperature steps allows for multi-stage firing processes of different DSC material sets
Safety Features Protective lid. Automatic off timing. Protective lid protects user during operation. Programmable timing feature means the hotplate will turn off at a specific time.
