Nikon Tokai Hit Thermo Plate Warming Stage
The Tokai Hit THERMOPLATE utilizes a special transparent heating material coated onto the surface of a hard glass plate. The THERMOPLATE can be used for observing or manipulating specimen under phase contrast, differential interference contrast and polarization. The flat plate surface ensures easy operation of the microscopes and relocation of specimen. The ultra-fine thermocouple internally embedded in the plate ensures excellent heat conductivity between the temperature sensor and the middle part of the plate section, thus minimizing overshoot at power up and temperature fluctuation of the plate surface due to disturbance.
The PID control adopted standard for the THERMOPLATE provides ideal temperature control, and ensures quick startup and high stability against disturbance. The PID control also minimizes overshoot so that accurate and stable temperature control can be ensured at all times.
Versions are available for inverted, upright, and stereo microscopes.
