It provides cold water and heater power to the optional experiments and all the instruments needed to measure their performance.
The Unit’s water system connects to a suitable cold water supply and drain. It includes a hand-operated valve to help give a controllable water flow and a simple return pipe.
The water connections to the optional experiments are self-sealing quick connectors – for safety and simplicity. Changing an experiment takes less than a minute. The Unit provides a variable and measured electrical current to the heater in each experiment and works with a safety switch to stop the heater
from becoming too hot. It also includes sockets for the thermocouples built into each optional experiment.
Clear, multi-line digital displays on the Base Unit show the temperatures and heater power of each experiment.
