These digitally controlled magnetic stirrers were originally designed for stirring solutions in standard 1 cm spectrometer cell. With 12x12x7 mm remote solid state motor (SSM) they are ideally suited for this application. Electronic stirrers can also be used in many different special applications that may benefit from the absence of mechanical vibrations, low electromagnetic interference, stable stirring rate even at low speed*, small size and hermetic design of SSM. Models MS-21A & B are similar but B version allow fine adjustment of the output power. Some users find it helpful when extremely gentle stirring is required. Model MS-22A has RH-50 type SSM integrated into the control unit and two outputs for external SSM**. It can be used as a regular magnetic stirrer for up to 500 ml volumes atop of a control unit, and also as a stirrer for special applications with remote SSM. High efficiency of these stirrers allow the use of batteries as a power source for complete elimination of 50-60 Hz interference or for use in the mobile laboratories. Battery power supply (Part # BP4D) for 4 D size batteries need to be ordered separately. Standard power supply (120 V AC to 6-9 V DC wall transformer) is included. If you need one for 220-240V, please add US $15.00 to the price of control unit.
MS-23 stirrer controller is integrated into 120V AC wall transformer enclosure. This unit does not take any bench space at all, just an available AC outlet close to the place were stirring is required.
* - Due to the discrete switching of the magnetic field, stable rotation
require the right size of a stirring bar and flat flask bottom.
**- Please note that external SSM are NOT included with control units and must be ordered separately. All controllers are capable to drive any SSMs listed below.

MS-24 BLM illuminating and stirring unit combines battery powered magnetic stirrer and LED light source. It is designed for placement inside of a Faraday cage, thus eliminating not only all external sources of electromagnetic interference that may enter cage trough outside wires but also noises associated with AC plugged power supply. It includes: lighting/stirring controller, power supply module, RH-12M stirrer motor, and LED light source. Controller may be attached to one of Faraday cage walls, with switches and potentiometers accessible from outside; necessary hardware and an extra faceplate is included. One set of an average AA batteries is sufficient for about eight hours of stirring or 50 hours of BLM illumination.
