Condensation Prevention (MIR-554 only)
A humidity reduction mode helps reduce inner chamber condensation that may occur during high temperature operation.
Prevents Medium from Dessication (MIR-154, 254 only)
A DC fan is designed to be aimed obliquely upward to prevent direct air flow contacting samples. This reduces medium drying by approx. 50% in MIR-154, and by approx. 15%in MIR-254.
Meticulous Design for Comfortable Operation
New MIRs are crafted with a comfortable rounded corner design and offer a reversible door for a choice of left- or right-hand door opening. Low vibration setting is also available depending on the sample to be cultured. (Reversible door is unavailable for MIR-554.)
In addition to a microprocessor-controlled high efficient heater output and compressor ON/OFF, a renewal control program and low heat-emission inner chamber fan are newly adopted incorporated to allow high energy saving operation over a wider range of ambient environments.
To combat annoying frost during low temperature operation, MIRs provide an automatic defrost function that operates automatically at a specified time every day. Manual defrosting is also selectable.
Light Timer Control
On-Off programmed timer control for standard equipped fluorescent light (15W x 1pc) is available. Optional light addition kit (MIR-L15) can add three more fluorescent lights into the chamber ceiling, giving approx. 3000 lux at 30cm below from the light sources.
Microprocessor controlled optimum control results in high energy savings and a HCFCfree foamed-in-place rigid polyurethane insulator also helps save energy.
Automatic Setting Temperature Alarm
When the chamber temperature deviates more than ±1°C to ±5°C, all digits of the digital indicator flash. 15 minutes (default) later a buzzer will sound. This system also automatically allows programmed operation or setting value changes.
Independent Over-Temperature Protection Device
This cooled incubator incorporates an excessive temperature prevention circuit that protects experimentation materials in the rare event that a temperature abnormality does occur. This system turns off the heater and chamber fan motor when too high a temperature is detected, and turns off the compressor when too low a temperature is detected.
