Microprocessor control with direct temperature setting using dial switch with back illumination which progressively lights as the plate temperature increase to set point. Cast aluminium/silicon alloy top plate with thin ceramic coating for additional chemical resistance, 150 x 150mm. Overall 172 x 248 x 120mm W x D x H. With illuminated power and ‘hot plate’ indicators, retort rod mount behind the top plate and base cut-outs to allow a retort stand base to slide.
The maximum surface temperature achieved by a hotplate is influenced by the material being heated and the siting of the plate. Therefore the temperature stated is nominal.
