  • Stainless steel exterior
  • Energy-efficient refrigeration with exclusive electronic expansion valve system
  • Specialized humidity generation and control
  • Unique thermal break construction for extreme testing
  • Casters, cable port, shelf, & USB port standard
  • ETL-listed electrical panel conforming to UL 508A

A new streamlined controller

ESPEC makes operating an environmental test chamber easier than ever with the new P-300 controller. An updated ‘tabbed’ user interface allows faster access to any screen. Standard USB and optional Ethernet interfaces make programming and data acquisition much simpler. In addition, improved algorithms make control faster and smoother.

Improved programming and data collection via computer

  • Standard USB port for uploading and downloading test programs and operation datalogs.
  • Optional remote monitoring, programming, and data collection via our Ethernet/LAN-based Web Controller
  • Direct access via an optional RS-232 serial port or GP-IB/LabView.

Energy-saving operation

Built into the P-300 controller are improved control algorithms for more efficient chamber operation. Invisible to the end user, the P-300 uses advanced control of an electronic expansion valve to save energy and improve control of the refrigeration system. Additional improvements in refrigeration and heater operation make the new generation of ESPEC Platinous chambers the most energy efficient ever.

New P-300 controller with USB

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.

DEMO: See how easy the P-300 is

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.

Energy-saving operation

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.
