Power Saving Function (eco indicator)

  • When “eco setting” is enable, if the door is not opened or closed and no operations are performed for 10 minutes, the cooling device is automatically stopped.
    Max. 25% stand-by electricity is reduced, comparing the stand-by electricity without eco setting. (under in-house evaluation) When a user forgets to turn off the main power switch for a long time (such as overnight), stand -by electricity consumption isreduced.
    Set “eco” function and contribute energy saving.

    Easy-to-Read Capacitive Touch Panel accepts latex gloves operations.

Actual Run Time (ART Function)

Timer starts counting after the set speed is attained. So acceleration time is excluded from the centrifugation time.You can obtaion higher reproducible centrifugation result with this function.
It easier to obtain more consistent separation results because there is less variation in acceleration times due to different rotors and sample volumes.

Total Run Hours Indication

Total run hours * can be displayed on the operation panel. It is useful as a guideline of the periodical maintenance. * Including acceleration time regardless a setting of the Actual Run Timer

Optional Remote monitoring Sytem " himac View "

Remote monitoring application “himac View” is available for CT18R, CR30NX and CP-NX series.
”himac View” monitors, operates of start or stops a centrifuge with iPhone ™ or Android ™ Phone via Wi-Fi ®.
“himac View” monitors up tp 16 units of CT18R, CR30NX or CP-NX series in the LAN access network.
* Optional LAN board in CT18R is required to use “himac View”. For more details contact the nearest sales representative.

Self-Locking Rotor System

  • Just place a rotor on the drive shaft.
    The rotor is automatically locked by centrifugal force once it starts spinning.
    When the rotor comes to complete stop, the lock is automatically released.
