BProtocols Digital Hot Plate
Using the second floor cleanroom's digital hot plates.
The hot plates are very powerful and easy to use, once you understand the trick. If you press a setting, for instance, plate temp, it will read out the current setting. In order to change the setting, first press Enter/Set, then the setting you want to change, then Enter/Set again.
This order is not really necessary, but it illustates my point.
- Press Enter/Set, plate temp, enter the desired final temperature, and press Enter/Set again.
- Press Enter/Set, ramp temp, enter the number of degrees per hour to take in order to reach the final plate temp, and press Enter/Set again. If the final temp is lower than the current temp, this will be a ramp down.
- Press Enter/Set, timer hr/min, enter the number of hours and minutes to be on for, and press Enter/Set again. Make sure to enable auto-off by pressing the auto-off button. The light should come on.
Yeah, it's pretty simple.
