Inheco TEC Controllers and Slot Modules

Control and connect your Inheco devices

Inheco’s TEC control units are required to control your Inheco on-deck heating/cooling and shaking devices. They combine a power supply and controller in one small unit.

Inheco controllers control temperature and shaking and measure ambient temperature and humidity as well as supplying power to your devices. Use them with all Inheco on-deck heating/cooling and shaking devices that need separate control units, and up to six in parallel. Including CPAC, CPLC, HeatPAC, Heated Lid, Thermoshake, Teleshake 95, Teleshake 95 AC and Teleshake AC. Optional for the Teleshake and Teleshake 1536.

We offer 3 options for control units:
  • The Inheco Single TEC Control (STC) unit controls one device.
  • The Inheco Multi TEC Control (MTC) unit can control up to 6 Inheco devices in parallel.
  • Where space is at a premium, the compact MTC controls up to 6 Inheco devices whilst minimizing the overall footprint.
  • All Inheco TEC units sit off deck, leaving you more deck space while reducing noise and temperature.
All Inheco control units come ready to use with command sequences, base drivers and APIs, ready for seamless integration into your liquid handling workstation. They can also be used as stand-alone units.

The MTC (185 mm x 249 mm x 264 mm) and STC (147 mm x 224 mm x 177 mm) include a touch screen, a power supply for worldwide use and a USB interface for easy robotic integration. They can be operated manually using the touch screen, or through the USB interface in automated systems. The controller’s software and firmware allow programming of complex temperature and shaking sequences. The MTC Compact has the same USB interface, software and firmware with a lower profile (300 mm x 260 mm x 100 mm), and no touchscreen, for automation projects with limited space.

Slot modules are required to drive the Inheco devices. When ordered together with the controller, they come pre-installed and are easy to swap and install. We currently offer three types of slot modules based on the device in use:
  • Blue – CPAC
  • Black – CPAC HT 2-TEC, Teleshake 95, Thermoshake, HeatPAC, Heated Lid
  • Yellow – Thermoshake AC
Every Inheco accessory is designed, engineered and made in Germany and undergoes rigorous quality control before delivery. It comes with a global two-year warranty and full customer service including remote support, diagnostic and servicing options that focusses on minimizing operational downtime.
