Sample Displays
The Acuatic Vacuum 12 B display will always tell you what options you have, and what state the steriliser is in. Below are some sample displays.

Water Managment

The Acuatic Vacuum will tell you when to fill, when to drain and and whether the water quality is acceptable.

Starting A Cycle

Simplicity is key. With the door closed there are only two options - reopen the door or start a cycle.

Running A Cycle

When running a cycle the display will show cycle parameters with moving temperature and time bars.

Cycle Completion

When the cycle has finished, this will be indicated on the display and the door can then be opened.

The Acuatic Vacuum 12 B built in data logger is used to record cycle data to an SD memory card. From there the data can be copied to another computer, where it can be viewed or printed using a free application which can be downloaded here.

Each cycle records onto an individual row, which records the steriliser serial number, date, time, cycle number, Pass/Fail and type of cycle run. Clicking on a row will display detailed cycle information on the right hand side of the screen (as seen below) which includes times, temperatures, pressures etc.
