DC-3 ESD dry storage cabinet

DC ESD series dry storage cabinet is a line of special equipment designed to provide ultra-low ranges of relative humidity, which is necessary for handling moisture-sensitive components and materials including precision metal parts, printed circuit boards, plates, nano fibers, cassettes, laboratory samples, electronic modules.

All DC ESD series cabinets produced only in antistatic (ESD) version, in strict compliance with ESD safety regulations of IEC 61340-5-1.

For dry storage cabinets we use only specific ESD glass with conductive surface (conductivity 103 -105 Ohm) and ESD wheels. All the shelves and horizontal surfaces of the cabinet are grounded and ESD coating of all metal elements is applied. All cabinets are supplied in a set with one middle shelf for each section.

All DC series cabinets are equipped with RS-232 port and USB port that allows data collection. One should simply connect DC dry cabinet to a computer using standard cable.

VIKING dry cabinets can be operated remotely via VIKING Humidity manager software - a user-friendly software that helps the operator to be aware of the storage conditions; records dry cabinet data and allows checking the graphs over a period of time.

DC series cabinets feature humidity & temperature display with parameter value input on easy-to-operate three buttons digital control LSD panel.

Humidity and temperature monitoring is performed by the built-in precision sensor with digital interface, processor and LCD display. Monitoring is performed by a sensor, based on CMOS technology, each sensor is being factory calibrated prior to installation.
