Programmable Hotplate

Programmable Hotplate

The Programmable Hotplate provides a consistent, controllable and reliable heat source for the curing and baking substrates, working and counter electrodes for the production of cells and modules.


The Programmable Hotplate includes ramp timing and temperature controls. The key benefit to users of the Programmable Hotplate is that it can be programmed to precisely control the machine – an essential factor for achieving consistent, reliable results. Up to 32 temperature steps can be programmed and each temperature step can incorporate a ramp time or constant temperature time.
· Use the Programmable Hotplate to cure conductors, working and counter electrodes on Perovskite & Dye Solar cells

· Safety glass window – protects user during operation while providing excellent view. Dust Absorber to collect harmful dust particles produced


Additional Information
Temperature Range
Allows a full range of temperatures for firing materials
Up to 650°C
Substrate Sizes
230mm x 160mm
Accommodates from test cells up to 15cm size electrodes
Temperature Uniformity
Due to the large thermal capacity of the Programmable Hotplate, the temperature uniformity, once stabilised is ±5% except within 10mm of the edge
The temperature uniformity ensures precise user control of firing temperatures, essential for achieving consistent results.
Programmable Timing
Up to 5 temperature steps incorporating a ramp time and constant temperature time Time range: both ramp and constant time up to 9 hours 59 minutes in 1 minute intervals.
the programmable timing function with 5 temperature steps allows for multi-stage heating processes of different material sets.
