ROTANTA 46 RSC-ROBOTIC, refrigerated

The robotic versions of model ROTANTA 46 RSC are refrigerated centrifuges with PC control and rotor
positioning. Designed for automatic sample processing they perform routine laboratory tasks efficiently
and economically especially in genetic and pharmaceutical research.

Monotonous and repetitive operations or analyses bearing a high rsik of infection no longer need to be
carried out by laboratory personnel. Therefore, robotic centrifuges are valuable working aids in the
automated laboratory.

A hatch in the lid opening before and after every centrifuging cycle allows loading and unloading of the
centrifuge with a robotic arm.
Hettich ROBOTIC centrifuges stand out for state-of-art technology and conformity to strictest safety

Their robust and sturdy design guarantees troublefree 24-hour continuous service.

Reliable and enduring partners for automated laboratories
More and More, modern technology is moving into laboratories.
In pharmaceutical research labs for example new methods to reduce animal tests to a
minimum are applied.
Many new drugs are no longer tried on animals bot on cells, which necessitates the use of centrifuges.
The ROTANTA 46 RSC ROBOTIC now also permits the integration of centrifuging operations into
automated laboratory routines.
All functions of the centrifuge can be remote-controlled.
If necessary, commands can also be entered manually on the centrifuge´s control panel.
The hatches correspond to the size of the buckets.
Featuring a larger hatch model No. 4815 is designe dto accept microlitration plates and
comparable systems as well as bottles.
Featuring a somewhat smaller hatch model No. 4815-10 is designed to accept buckets
for accommodating tubes.

ROTANTA 46 RSC ROBOTIC centrifuges can be integrated in any workstation.
In addition to standars accessories Hettich also manufactures special buckets an inserts tailored to the
requirements of the customers.
Speak with us about the details !
The centrifuge is remote-controlled by optical data transmission

The centrifuge that reads to you !
The controlling PC requires a free RS 232 interface. A 9-pole RS 232 cable is supplied with the
centrifuge !
A transformer (opto data box) converts the RS 232 signals into light.
Every ROTANTA 46 RSC ROBOTIC centrifuge is supplied with an opto data box and an optical cable.

Fully developed microprocessor technology ensures troublefree operation

All functions of the centrifuge can be remote-controlled. Status infomation like standstill, accerlation,
centrifuging, cycle, lid, rotor, position, etc. can be inquired.
The position of the buckets is programmable.
The driving motor positions the rotor and firmly holds it in the required bucket position under the hatch.
The exact position of the buckets is adjustable,
The positioning accuray of every rotor position is < 0.6 mm !
After every centrifuging cycle the drive automatically turns the rotor to position No.1.
