Specific Instructions on the Wafer Assisted Mechanical Controller
The wafer assisted mechanical temperature controller is simplicity at its best. Easy, affordable, and reliable - it’s not rocket science, but sometimes the simplest works the best. Most of our Nursery Hospital intensive care units have been standard equipped with this type controller successfully for many years, and have been proven accurate, and reliable to maintain a carefree constant temperature. We continue to offer this option to those who prefer it’s timeless reliability. For shipping purposes the wafer, wing nut, nylon washer, and adjusting screw is placed inside the humidity tray or taped inside the box. The nylon washer goes on first as not to tear the increase/decrease label. Then the adjusting screw with the wing nut treads in the hole marked increase/decrease until it protrudes about ½ an inch inside the unit. Thread the wafer (as shown in the Illustration) on to the adjusting screw until snug, caution should be taken not to over tighten. As a starting place, we suggest screwing the wafer ½ way between the metal bracket and the micro switch. After turning the unit on, let it stabilize for 3 or 4 hours before making any adjustments. Once stabilized this controller will maintain the desired temperature.
