Specifications and User Guide

TROUBLESHOOTING
- Primary Test:
Power the Melt Station using its AC adapter. Turn the control dial on the Melt Station to any temperature setting, or Rapid Heat. Connect the Melt Station to your platform. Run the data collection software. The Melt Station should auto-ID and a temperature reading will be displayed. Start the data collection. The temperature readings should increase.

- Secondary Test:
Power the Melt Station using its AC adapter. Turn the control dial to any temperature setting. If the Melt Station is working properly, the red LED will come on to indicate that the heating block is warming.

CALIBRATION
- Calibrate? No.
The temperature sensor embedded in the aluminum heating block of the Melt Station will never need to be calibrated. The sensor is carefully calibrated before it ships, and this unique calibration is stored on a smart chip in the sensor. Note: There is no method to perform a calibration of this sensor in any of our software programs.
