Exclusive Energy Setpoint

The energy setpoint continuously monitors the amount of energy in Joules (watts x seconds), that is being delivered to the probe, and terminates the ultrasonics when the desired amount of energy has been dispensed.


Digitally displays the actual amount of power in watts that is being delivered to the probe.

Automatic Tuning and Frequency Control

Eliminates the need for constant adjustment of the power supply.

Integrated Temperature Controller

Precludes harmful overheating of the sample and guarantees process integrity by terminating the ultra- sonics when the sample temperature reaches a predetermined limit. Allows process control and monitoring from 1°C to 100°C.

Consistent Reproducibility

Time-saving user-programmed presets store up to ten procedures to facilitate protocol duplication, automate repetitive tasks, and eliminate technician-to-technician method variability.

Microprocessor Based – Programmable

Digital accuracy and repeatability guarantee adherence to the most exacting protocol.

Automatic Amplitude Compensation

Ensures uniform probe amplitude regardless of the vary- ing loading conditions encountered during the processing cycle.

On Demand Real Time Display

Provides a window on the process. No more assumptions. No more approximations. Pressing a button enables all set and run parameters to be continuously displayed on the screen, providing instant operating mode confirmation without process interruption.

Variable Power Output Control

Allows the ultrasonic vibrations at the probe tip to be set to any desired amplitude. Selected output level is clearly displayed on the screen.

Ten Hour Process Timer

Controls the processing time from 1 second to 10 hours.

Elapsed Time Indicator

Monitors both the elapsed time and the duration of processing.

Independent On/Off Pulser

Enables safe treatment of temperature-sensitive samples at high intensity, and provides mixing by repeatedly allowing the sample to settle back under the probe after each burst. Both on and off cycles are independently controllable from 1 second to 59 seconds.

User Friendly

Menu driven fill-in-the-blank prompts provide intuitive guidance through all functions.

Smallest Footprint In Its Class

Ultra-compact design eases emplacement and optimizes bench space. Only 7 1⁄2" x 13 1⁄2" (190 x 340 mm)


Vibra-Cell™ models are backed by a three-year warranty that covers both parts and labor as well as Made in the USA.
