4.2
Basic Operation
•
Press the POWER switch on the control panel. Shaking incubator automatically
detects power supply frequency F50 or F60 and shows it on the display. Incubator
will automatically be set to the last saved parameters.
4
•
To set Temperature: Press and hold the Encoder knob for more than 2 seconds.
The Temperature indicator light will blink. Rotate knob clockwise (+) or counterclockwise (-) to set Temperature to desired value:
37.5 ⇒ 37.5°C
•
If you want to use the shaking incubator without temperature regulation, set the
display to OFF. The OFF function will display when you rotate the Encoder knob
below 0.0°C or above 70.0°C.
To set Speed: Press Encoder knob until the Speed light blinks. Rotate the Encoder
knob clockwise (+) or counter-clockwise (-) to set Rotating Speed to desired value:
34 ⇒ 34 rpm
120 ⇒ 120 rpm
•
If you want to use the shaking incubator without shaking, set OFF on display. The
OFF function will display when you rotate the Encoder knob under 20 rpm or above
300 rpm.
5
To set Time: Press the Encoder knob until the Time indicator light blinks. Rotate the
Encoder knob clockwise (+) or counter-clockwise (-) to set Time to desired value
between 1 minute to 99 hours:
70.3 ⇒ 70 hr 30 min
1.55 ⇒ 1 hr 55 min
0.43 ⇒ 43 min
0.01 ⇒ 1 min
•
•
To set Time to hold (continued operation) - set HLd on the display. The HLd
function will display when you rotate the Encoder knob to under 0.01 minute or
above 99.0 hours.
Press START/STOP key once to exit the changing of parameters. You are now in
starting mode. The light from the parameter that was last changed will remain on.
Note: To exit the changing of parameters, always press the START/STOP key once.
•
•
Press the START/STOP key to start the operation.
The time will begin counting down and the Run indicator light will be
illuminated.
Time and Speed can be alternately viewed in the bottom display by pressing the
Encoder knob during the run.

4.3
Changing parameters during operation
Note: You cannot modify time during operation.
•
If you want to change the Temperature during operation, press and hold the
Encoder knob for more than 2 seconds. Temperature indicator light blinks. Rotate
the Encoder knob clockwise (+) or counter-clockwise (-) to set the desired value.
The Temperature indicator light will continue to blink until the desired value is set.
To set the desired value, press START/STOP key only ONCE. The shaking
incubator goes back to working parameters and actual temperature will show on the
display. Holding the Encoder knob for more than 2 seconds will toggle the display
back to the temperature.
•
To change Speed or Temperature during operation, press and hold the Encoder
knob until the Temperature or Speed indicator light blinks. To switch between
setting Temperature and Speed, press the Encoder knob one time until the
desired indicator light is illuminated. When finished press the START/STOP key one
time to exit.
•
When the run is completed, End appears on the display and the Run indicator light
pulses. The Run indicator light will only turn off when the shaking incubator has
come to a complete stop. The last used values for Time, Speed, and Temperature
will remain for the next run.
If you lift the lid during operation the shaking incubator will immediately
stop and the message “Opn Lid” appears on displays. When you close
the lid again, the shaking incubator will resume operation.
`
4.4
In the event of a power outage, the shaking incubator will restart
automatically, as soon as the electricity returns. A warning will be
displayed indicating the power had been off. Pressing the “Encoder”
knob will turn this off.
Shaking without heating
If you want to shake the samples without heating them, set Temperature to OFF.

TEMPERATURE RE-ADJUSTMENT
Note: Temperature re-adjustment procedure is only for qualified technical persons.
Measure the temperature in the middle of the incubator or in a sample (preferred) for a
minimum of 2 hours. A calibrated digital thermometer with precision of 0.1°C or more should be
used. After 2 hours or more, read the temperature on the thermometer and compare it with the
temperature on the display of the shaking incubator. The difference between the temperatures
on the thermometer and the display is the value to be entered.
Example 1:
Temperature on the thermometer is 37.9°C. Temperature on the display is 37°C.
Difference is 37.9 - 37 = 0.9
Value is 0.9
Example 2:
Temperature on the thermometer is 36.2°C. Temperature on the display is 37°C.
Difference is 36.2 - 37 = -0.8
Value is -0.8
Procedure for temperature calibration:
•
•
•
Press and hold the Encoder knob for more than 5 seconds – message Cor (correction)
appears on display.
Press the Encoder knob once, then turn the Encoder knob until the value calculated
above is displayed – paying attention to the plus or minus sign. When you set the value,
press the Encoder knob again.
Press START/STOP key to finish the temperature re-adjustment.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
8.1
Cleaning of the working chamber (painted stainless steel)
The working chamber should be cleaned regularly with mild cleaning solutions. Abrasive
cleaners should not be used. Spills should be cleaned up immediately.
Use cleaners with neutral pH for decontamination. Stainless steel platform can be
decontaminated by autoclaving (120°C).
8.2
Maintenance and cleaning of the PMMA (acrylic) lid
Maintenance
Acrylic glass is sensitive to scratching. Use only a soft cloth and non-abrasive cleaners.
Grease and oil that may have accidentally spilled can be cleaned with hexane,
petroleum, or other chemicals in aromatic base.
Cleaning
Use:
• It is best to use 2% aqueous solution of non-aggressive cleaning products
(dishwashing detergent).
• Wipe the surface with a lightly damp soft cloth.
• Remove dust and dirt with dry soft cloth.
Do not use:
• Do not use acetone, benzene, paint thinner, carbon tetrachloride, or other
aggressive liquids, because they can damage the surface of the acrylic lid.
• Do not use cleaners containing ketones or esters.
• Do not use cleaners with solid and abrasive particles.
• Do not use polishes.
• Never clean the surface with products containing acetone or other solvents or
with cleaning products for chemical cleaning, paint thinner, gasoline, and similar.
Avoid any contact with these chemicals.
• Do not use detergents with high levels of alcohol.
Device can be very hot after operating, especially if used at temperatures
higher than 60°C. Do not touch the platform until it is cooled.
Before you begin cleaning the device, unplug the main cord from the
power supply socket.
Check with the manufacturer before using any other cleaning or decontamination
methods to assure that the equipment is will not be damaged.
