Electrothermal MC242 Controller

1-Way Controller, 230V, 50/60Hz, 1800W, UK & EU Plugs
  • 1-Way Controller 

The MC5, MC242, MC227 and MC228X1 Controllers have been designed to control the heating of resistive loads for bench top operation. They deliver different levels of power according to your requirements and are suitable for EM series Electromantles, the Electric Bunsen and Heating Cords and Tapes.  

Each controller has 2 neon indicators: "Power On" white neon light and "Mantle/Bunsen Heater On" amber neon light. They all have a regulator control knob which can be turned clockwise to increase power. As the knob is turned, the controller's amber neon light will pulsate to show that power is being supplied to the equipment being controlled, e.g. mantles, heating tape or cord. The pulse frequency will decrease as the regulator control knob setting is increased, and at maximum setting, the amber neon will be continually illuminated. 

A rod support clamp is provided at the rear of each controller to take a standard 12.5mm (½") diameter rod. They have a short mains lead with an IEC socket to connect them to the resistive load. An accessory extension mains lead is available where remote operation is required, e.g. in a fume extraction unit.
