WL 372 Heat Conduction Unit  Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description

  The experimental unit comprises two heater and cooler combinations that provide the necessary temperature difference.

  The linear thermal conduction experiment allows the thermal properties of different samples to be investigated.

  Each experimental set-up is equipped with up to nine temperature measuring points. The temperatures are displayed on the control unit. The heating capacity is also adjusted and displayed here. The measured values are transmitted directly to a PC via USB. The data acquisition software is included.
