For years AGREE chambers have been the workhorses of the environmental test chamber industry. Originally created to meet military test standards, their flexible design has made them suitable for a wide variety of applications. Fast temperature changes of 5 to 25°C/m. are possible, even with significant loads. The chambers have a removable floor, allowing integration with vibration test systems. Custom designs are common, allowing configuration to meet your exact requirements.
Special model EADX52 can interface with both vertical and horizontal vibration systems
ETL-listed electrical panel conforming to UL 508A
In addition, the P-300 touch-screen controller makes running an ESPEC environmental test chamber a breeze. The full-color, touch-screen interface is remarkably easy to use and understand. The P-300 Touch Screen Controller can be managed remotely via our new Ethernet/LAN-based Web Controller, serial port, or GP-IB/LabView.
ESPEC custom chamber capabilities:
Nearly every Agree chamber we build is designed per the application. ESPEC can build custom sizes, automation, and movement needed for applications with or without vibration systems.
Features for AGREE Chambers
Full-opening door with silicone gaskets and cam latch
Interior lighting recessed clear of workspace
Exterior is painted ESPEC slate blue and gray
Chamber floor designed to be changeable to accommodate different “floor plugs” for vibration systems
Standard floor plug provided is diaphragm for vertical vibration applications (solid or other floors optional)
Teflon glides in floor slot make floor replacement very easy
Custom models with vertical and horizontal movement to accommodate the use of combo-base vibration systems available.
Refrigeration and Plenum
Plenum with cooling coil and nichrome wire heaters
¾ hp blower motors with one-piece stainless steel shafts
Non-CFC cascade refrigeration system using semi-hermetic Copeland Scroll or Discus compressors
Automatic water regulator controls water usage on water-cooled models
Humidity models include steam generator and dehumidification coil
Instrumentation console mounted to the right of the door
Three levels of overheat protection including an independent, adjustable sensor
Electrical disconnect switch for main power
Specimen power interlock relay for chamber and sample protection
ESPEC’s New P-300 Programmer/Controller:

The trend-graph display shows a record of setpoints and actual values (operation data can be downloaded as needed, or continually, to USB)
Two time signal relays for automated on/off control of test devices/samples
System alarms are stored in memory for historical review
Built-in timer functions allow the chamber to be started or shut down automatically
Pattern Manager Lite PC software for program editing and datalog viewing/exporting, to support USB functionality
Designed for use with combo-base vibration systems that operate in vertical or horizontal modes

Get improved performance, energy savings, plus USB access
The exclusive ESPEC P-300 controller has USB and Ethernet features to make programming and data collection easier than before. The user interface uses tabs for faster access to any screen. Standard USB and optional Web Controller/Ethernet interfaces make programming and data acquisition much simpler. In addition, improved algorithms make operation faster and smoother.
USB port for upload/download of test profiles and test data
Test programs can uploaded or downloaded from the P-300 via USB thumb drive.
Create, edit, and store programs on a PC using the included Pattern Manager Lite software.
Accurate, repeatable testing by uploading the same program to multiple chambers.
Create your own back-up archive of programs, and get additional profiles from ESPEC's library.
Retrieve and download test operation data via USB thumb drive. Data timeframe is selectable.
For integrity, viewing test data on a PC and exporting to Excel requires included Pattern Manager Lite software.
Invisible to the end user, the P-300 uses advanced cooling control via an electronic expansion valve, saving energy and improving temperature stability. Sophisticated future-looking algorithms make temperature ramping faster and smoother. These high-end features are unique to ESPEC. Additional improvements in refrigeration and heater operation will make the next generation of ESPEC chambers the most energy efficient ever.
Store up to forty programs, as well as three different constant-mode set-ups.
Multilingual display in English, Japanese, Chinese, or Korean.
Alarm diagnostics and history, plus a ‘back trace’ feature for troubleshooting.
Three programmable timers allow the user to set reminders for maintenance or other actions.
Energy saving by using only one compressor when testing above -10°C (for cascade refrigeration models).
Computer interface options for specialized programs: RS-232/serial or GP-IB.
