This system is based upon the temperature control technology used in the Examina heating and freezing stages. The dynamic heating and cooling performance ensures that many electrical component temperature control applications are covered.
Up to 4 positional gold tipped, tungsten probes (other types can be used) can be connected to electrical connectors within the sample chamber and enable the user to make electrical measurements on the sample, while accurately controlling the temperature inside a gas tight environment. Gas ports on the sides of the stage enable the user to purge the sample environment with inert or humidified gas.
The stage consists of a 22mm diameter temperature controlled element with a platinum resistor sensor embedded close to the surface for accurate temperature measurements. The sample is simply placed on the heating element and the probes moved manually to make contact at the appropriate points. Probes have excellent positional resolution enabling precise contact points to be made easily.
