Securing – IKA EUROSTAR 20 high speed control User Manual
Securing the extension arm to the overhead stirrer
(see Fig. 2)
Ensure that the extension arm is fitted securely.
Vibration may cause the screw to become loose. It is therefore nec-
essary for safe use to occasionally check that the extension arm is
attached securely. Tighten the hexagonal socket screw as required.
Securing the overhead stirrer to the stand
(see Fig. 3)
First secure the cross sleeve (H) to the stand (I). Then secure the ex-
tension arm (J) of the overhead stirrer in the open side of the cross
sleeve which is facing upwards. Once you have set the position re-
quired for the stirring procedure, firmly tighten the two clamping
Check that the stirrer is held in position firmly prior to each use and
also at regular intervals. The position of the stirrer must only be ad-
justed when the equipment is stationary and the power supply is
Securing a stirring element using the conical attachment
(see Fig. 4)
Slide the R 6000 precision shaft (P) into the conical attachment on
the output shaft (N). Tighten the retaining nut (O) using a hook span-
ner and a single open-end wrench.
To fit the stirring element (R), hold the output shaft/precision shaft
stationary using a single open-end wrench. The stirring element can
be tightened in place with a second single open-end wrench, using
the area on the stirring element provided for this purpose.
Check that the stirring element is held in position securely prior to
each use and also at regular intervals. The stirring element must only
be changed when the equipment is stationary and the power supply
Securing the stirring shaft protector
(see Fig. 5)
Use a stirring shaft protector (Q), e.g. R 301, to provide protection
against injury when working with the instrument.
Use the bolts (U) to attach the plastic half-shell pieces to the stir-
rer (T), as shown in Fig. 5. The screw (S) can be used to adjust the
length of the stirring shaft protector.
Check that the stirring shaft protector is held in position securely prior
to each use and also at regular intervals. The position of the stirring
shaft protector must only be adjusted when the equipment is station-
ary and the power supply is disconnected.
Securing the mixing vessel to the stand
(see Fig. 7)
First fix the cross sleeve (H) to the stand (I).
Then attach the bracket (Z) of the strap clamp in the open side of the
cross sleeve which is facing upwards according to the position of stir-
rer and the mixing vessel, firmly tighten the two clamping bolts (G).
Clamp the mixing vessel (V) with the flexible clamping band (W) and
secure the flexible band (W) by means of the clamping lever (X).
Securing the Wireless Controller (WiCo) to the stirrer
(see Fig. 1)
Attach the Wireless Controller (WiCo) to the charging contact pro-
vided on the station, and bolt it to the EUROSTAR station with the
Connection of the temperature sensor, USB and RS232 ca-
bles to the stirrer
(see Fig. 6)
The USB, RS 232 or temperature sensor cable should be plugged
into the appropriate port after the covers have been removed as
shown in Fig. 6.
Once the EUROSTAR 20 high speed control has been connected
to the PC using the USB data cable, it will then transmit information
to the Windows operating system to tell it which device drivers are
required. Windows will then either:
- Load the driver
- Install the driver automatically, if it is not already installed
- Prompt the user to perform a manual installation
Charging the RB 1 battery pack (rechargeable battery)
The battery pack of the Wireless Controller can be charged by any of
the following means:
- on the EUROSTAR station
- via a USB cable at the PC or station
- via an OS 1.0 power supply unit.
Please comply with the relevant safety instructions in the "Safety instructions" section for the RB 1 battery
