Reach in Plant Growth Chamber - E-36HID

Keep detailed control over your experiments and make your studies easy and accurate. Percival® Scientific designs Seed Germination Chambers in a variety of sizes with many different features and configurations so you can find the ideal chamber for the plants and environments you are working with. The IntellusUltra controller mounted on the front of E-36HID model gives you digital control over the interior environment, allowing you to designate the lighting events, temperature and more of your research environment. With a range of other options including CO2 enrichment, humidity control, alarms, configurations with your smart phone and more, we can help you design an ideal chamber for your research.


-Frequently used for research applications such as lighting for vascular plants to facilitate standard plant production, plant pathology research and seedling germination and development
-Many other applications exist for this product

Percival’s IntellusUltra Controller
-Percival Scientific has built a reputation of providing flexible, customized options for research scientists around the world. We have taken the philosophy to the next level with our improved IntellusUltra Controller. Now choose from the levels of functionality that meet your needs.

Lighting System
-Intensity programmable up to 1500 micromoles/m2/sec of light irradiance measured at 36” from lamps
-Programming and control of the lighting is done via IntellusUltra real time controller

-Air circulation inside chamber is from a specifically designed air diffuser (air travels along the entire back wall, over the shelves and returns to the ceiling fans through an opening between the light fixtures and the doors)

Cabinet Construction
-Interior constructed of 22-gauge electro-zinc plated steel
-Exterior constructed of 18-gauge exterior electro-zinc plated steel
-Welded seams and joints on outer and inner shells
-Inner shell supported by non-compressing/non-thermal conducting material locking inner liner in place without a metal-to-metal bond to outer case

-Woodless construction using CFC free insulation (overall wall thickness is 2”, ample insulation for maintenance of stated temperature range)

-One door opening of 29.2” x 57.5” providing full access to chamber interior (magnetic gasket provides a tight seal to door frame)

Interior Space
-29.7 cu.ft. with work area of 5.4 sq.ft. provided on one tier

-One tier of white epoxy coated steel wire shelving (shelf is 27”D x 28.8”W)
-Shelf is supported by shelf clips allowing 1/2” vertical adjustments
-Maximum growth height is 37.8”

-Interior and exterior painted with high reflective, environmentally friendly, high temperature baked white powder coating

-Self-contained air-cooled condensing unit with hot gas bypass system for continuous compressor operation, extended life and close temperature control (this continuous running condensing unit ensures precise temperature control by alternating cycling refrigerant and hot gas to coil; this also prolongs life of compressor, and eliminates risk of ice buildup in coil)
-Top mounted refrigeration system allows for easy access for maintenance (e.g. cleaning)
-As heat is rejected, it rises and is dissipated into room without having any effect on inside temperature of cabinet
-Solenoid valves have extended stem for quiet and long life operation
-Ceiling mounted evaporator coil incorporates twin air circulation fans in aluminum housing (heat rejection to ambient with standard chamber: 6200 BTU/hr)

Temperature Range
– 10-44C (+/- 0.5C) lights on and 2-44C (+/- 0.5C) lights off

Temperature Safety Limit Controls
-Experiment Protection: Adjustable high and low temperature controls, audible alarms, and visual indicators provided
-Controls shut down all power to chamber, activating alarms (when the temperature returns to the normal range the system will automatically reset)

Convenience Receptacles
-Two 115/1/60 convenience receptacles provided inside chamber

Electrical Requirements
-Consult Geneva Scientific for electrical requirements and amperage draw.
