My hotplate is 135 mm in diameter. Do I need an adapter to use Heat-On?
Is the Carousel Temperature Controller compatible with my hotplate? Is it available?
If you’re not sure whether a particular hotplate you have is compatible with a Carousel Temperature Controller or a Pt1000, check the socket on the hotplate – the Carousel Temperature Controller socket is 5-pin, whereas a Pt1000 socket is 4-pin, and the sticker should tell you which it is too – see below.
Old hotplates – compatible with Carousel Temperature Controller (or Heidolph EKT Hei-Con)
Current hotplates – compatible with Pt1000
What is the standard Pt1000 made of? Is there an alternative?
- RR91226: Pt1000 S/S Temperature Sensor
- RR91227: Pt1000 Glass Coated Temperature Sensor
Can I use any hotplate with StarFish? What base plates are available?
The dimensions above refer to the hotplate top plate dimensions – which are matched by the recess in the bottom of the base plate for fitting onto the hotplate. Using the correct base plate for your hotplate ensures the StarFish system fits securely on the hotplate and there is the best possible heat transfer. (Each base plate itself has the same diameter, for fitting StarFish MonoBlocks or PolyBlocks onto.)
What cable do I need to connect my Radleys Carousel Stirring Hotplate to a Data Hub and AVA?
For the Radleys Carousel Connect Stirring Hotplate, the correct RS232 cable is:
- RR91237: Carousel Connect RS232 Interface Cable – 9 Pin to 9 Pin
N.B. This is a different RS232 cable to the now discontinued Carousel Advanced model. The Carousel Advanced RS232 cable is still available as a spare part.
- RR91234: Carousel Advanced RS232 Interface Cable – 15 Pin to 9 Pin
