LEEC Plant Growth and Seed Germination Cabinets

LEEC Plant Growth / Germination Cabinets

Class leading design & technology

Models PL2, SL2, PL3, SL3, PL33

> Integrated lights to simulate day / night conditions

> Dual temperature cycling

> Digital timers

> High humidity versions available (SL2, SL3)

LEEC Plant Growth / Germination Cabinets are based on LEEC Precision Cooled Incubators. Day and night conditions are automatically simulated and can be easily programmed.

Temperature Control

All plant growth cabinets use the same temperature control systems as the cooled incubators on which they are based. Temperature performance can be marginally affected during the “lights on” cycle due to a small amount of heat from the lights radiating into the growth chamber. The temperature is cycled using a 7-day digital timer. Digital over and under temperature protection and alarms are fitted as standard to all models. The chambers are fan assisted for optimum temperature performance and stability, which in turn provides reliable, accurate storage for samples.  

Illumination

All models are fitted with a digital 7-day timer to control the day/night cycle of lights on and off. Each incubator door is fitted with one pair of white fluorescent tubes. These give a lighting intensity of approximately 3000 lux on each shelf. For higher lighting intensities and specialised applications, extra fluorescent light tubes (or UV tubes) can be requested. All lights are mounted vertically in the outer door which is vented at the top and bottom. This means that the unwanted heat from the light tubes can escape into the laboratory. Cabinets fitted with four or more lights in each door also have a small extract fan in the door to help remove excess heat. This helps to maintain stable control, especially at lower chamber temperatures.

 

High Humidity Models

Models SL2 and SL3 are sealed chamber versions of models PL2 and PL3.

SL2 and SL3 should be used for high humidity applications. Their sealed, water tight chambers are necessary when high levels of humidity are required inside the chamber (e.g. if the /RH ultrasonic humidity control option is fitted) or for storage or incubation of wet samples / plants. 

 

High Humidity Models with Ultrasonic Humidity Control

High humidity applications requiring humidity control are possible. A microprocessor controller regulates an ultrasonic fine mist humidity generator to increase the humidity within the chamber only as required. This gives the LEEC system outstanding accuracy and economy in use. The humidity generator has no moving parts, giving it improved reliability. An external water reservoir is included with all /RH models.

Model SL2 can be ordered with our ultrasonic humidity control system (/RH). Order code: SL2/RH

Model SL3 can be ordered with our ultrasonic humidity control system (/RH). Order code: SL3/RH
