BigBear Automation HT-91100

BigBear Automation HT-91100
Manufacturer: BigBear Automation
Model: HT-91100

Our HT-91100 microplate orbital shaker with RS-232 data control is designed to provide an orbital shaking motion for a single microplate, keeping liquids either gently stirred or fully mixed and in-suspension. Link-up to any PC with RS-232 serial data control. Rich ASCII command set with features such as programmable acceleration and velocity, precision auto-home positioning, status and velocity reporting, timed modes, scripts and complex shaking protocols. Drop in the ActiveX for your own development. Link over 35 units in a daisy chain to a single serial port. Ultra thin profile and exact same footprint dimensions as a standard SBS wellplate.
