Additonal EVO Comfort Control Panel Fuzzy Logic

The deep experience of our factory engineers and many years of careful development have led to the high performance fuzzy logic control system. By way of fuzzy logic, operations are continually evaluated, including the current process conditions as well chamber dimensions, set parameters, quantity of the samples inside all while optimizing heating, cooling and steam generation performance.

Steam Generator

The new high pressure steam generator is located in an easily accessible location and the newly designed powerful freezing coil regulates the relative humidity quickly with a full range from 10–95 % RH, according to the user set parameters, and with negligible temperature interference.

  • The Fuzzy logic microprocessor control allows for quick and easy operation
  • Wi-Fi connection for wireless connection to PC (optional equipment)
  • Heating and cooling elements  placed behind the chamber air distribution panels with maximum transfer surface allows for efficient heat exchange
  • Inner glass door, fully insulated made of safety glass Security latches according to EN 12150-2:2004
  • Easily removable chamber air distribution panels for ease in chamber cleaning
  • Precise air vents in the air distribution panels for efficient air flow
  • Improved attachment  of the upper housing allows for easy service access
  • New smart design with user-friendly control  panel
  • Stainless steel chamber (AISI 304) allowing for regular easy de-contamination of the chamber. All parts are sterilizable.
  • Efficient  LED diods (up to 30 000 lx) low-temperature programmable exposure lighting (optional equipment)

Programmable lighting

The new generation of climatic chamber Climacell EVO offers a wide range of possible lighting options and applications. Together with precise control of temperature, humidity, ventilation (fan speed) or CO2, it is also possible to control and program even the intensity of visible or ultra-violet exposure from the LED diodes.

Light shelves

In case of testing  photo stability for the pharmaceutical industry, the most suitable option is the use of light shelves for exposure of samples. The lighting is in compliance with standards ICH Q1A and Q1B, option 2 and relevant European standards. There are available light shelves with visible light, ultra-violet light and their combinations. It is possible to set different temperature or humidity for each segment and accordingly, it is possible to set different levels of lighting for each segment. That allows programming of cycles of day and night simulations with gradual light intensity with both increases and decreases.

Exposure Lighting in the Doors

For applications with essential uniform lighting of the chamber, (ie. plant growth), there is an option available with lighting in the Climacell  door. Just like with the light shelves, exposure light in the door allows separate regulation for each segment within the range of 0–100% in 10% increments

Humidity Control

Climacell EVO is a climatic chamber – i.e. a device that is able to exactly and quickly regulate the quantity of humidity in the chamber. This is possible thanks to the configuration of a robust system which allows for the  active increase and decrease of humidity in connection with the water supply to the device.

Steam Generator

The Climacell allows steam generation and  precise dosing to the chamber. Thanks to our significant historical experience in the field of steam sterilization  our expertise allows us to develop a pressure steam generator which is able to increase relative humidity in the chamber in a precise, reliable and rapidly. Steam overpressure is generated in the water reservoir using the heating element. Then, the valve releases an exact volume of steam into the chamber. The technology eliminates the over-shooting of set points while reaching the required level of relative humidity.

Humidity Reduction

Unique to the Climacell EVO both humidity increase and active humidity decrease using the separate cooling coils of the cooling system can be realized. The control system of Climacell EVO is able to reduce humidity in the chamber using the cooling system while keeping a nearly constant temperature. Operationally the humidity on the cooling coil condensates. Then the condensed water is taken back to the steam generator where the pump releases it to the drain. Thanks to this efficient system the Climacell EVO can reach even low relative humidity values very quickly.
