Product Description:

This product is discontinued. It is superseded by WS-1510EBPM.

This plug-and-play temperature controller can be used for controlling the temperature of application that needs very high precision such as incubators, aquariums and biological experiments equipments. It can also be used for controlling the temperature of rice cookers for sous-vide cooking.  To operate, plug the heater (or lamp) to the socket of the controller on the back, drop the sensor into the container, and turn on the power of controller.

This controller is essentially the same as our standard sous vide controller, WS-1500ES with the following differences. It has a higher resolution, (0.1°C or 0.1 °F) and higher accuracy. The accuracy is guaranteed to be within +/- 0.1 °C (or 0.2 °F) for the range from 0.0 to 85 °C ( 32.0 to 185.0 °F). The display range is from -50 to 400 °C or -58 to 752 °F

This controller uses PT100 RTD sensor. Please click here for the replacement sensor WS-SENSOR08. Another sensor that is compatible with this controller is WS-SENSOR09

Notes for customers outside North America:

  • The "universal" output socket accepts either US power cord or the European CEE 7/7 cord.
  • For European customers, we will ship the controller with European CEE 7/7 power input cord.
  • For other countries, a US power cord is included. User can splice the connector of the cord to a power strip outlet that meets the local standard for the output.  For the input, the controller has standard IEC 320 C13/14 socket. User can use a computer power cord that meets the local standard to power it.
  • There's an optional travel plug adapter for power output on the top of this product page. Please select it if you need this plug adapter. If you need adapters for power input, please check here.

  • For countries that use 220-240VAC power line, the maximum control power of this controller is 2400 Watts.
