Tenney TC Series Cycling Test Chambers

The TC Series of environmental cycling reach-in test chambers include both temperature-only chambers and temperature / humidity chambers. The Tenney TC Series Cycling Test Chambers offer design features for optimal performance such as a high volume horizontal-down air circulation system with an electric heating system and a mechanical refrigeration system. If the humidity option is selected, a vapor injection type humidification system is used to condition the product. A wide range of options can be added to enhance the equipment. Since 1932, Tenney engineering continues to incorporate the latest technologies in heating, cooling, and humidification to meet the most stringent demands in the industry.

    Smart 1.1 Controller 7 Inch Screen

    The main features of the 7” Windows based PLC Smart 1.1™ are the high resolution graphical touch screen, Smart 1.1™ graphical user interface, 800MHz Cortex A9 central processing unit with graphic processor, 4GB (SD Card) flash storage, capable of storing up to 100 profiles with 100 steps each. Test data retrieval and profile data transfer/sharing is accomplished through a local FTP server via Ethernet connection. Individual PID control loops allow for precise process control.

    A 100-ohm platinum RTD is used for temperature measurement and a dry capacitance type sensor is used for humidity measurement (when applicable). Customer use event outputs events can be purchased as an option.

    Other features included with Smart 1.1™:

    • Real-time and historical color graph displays for temperature and humidity as well as set point values
    • System can run in Single set point or Programmed modes
    • Alarm, Program, and Datalog files can be easily transferred to and from controller via Ethernet connection
    • Built-in TCP/IP networking via Ethernet 10/100 communication port
    • Ethernet communications are standard. RS485, RS232 and IEE GPIB are all available as options
    • Optional Analog signal re-transmit out to peripheral devices such as optional chart recorders, etc.
    • Remote access via Smartphone, iPad, etc. with internet connection and VNC phone App’s
    • Dynamic expandable zoom
    • 850:1 Contrast Ration
    • Windows CE 7.0 Operating System
    • 16 million display colors
    • Projective Capacitive Touch Screen
    • TFT LCD Anti-Glare Display
