The Base Unit is the center of any Atlas system. The Base Unit can be configured into a variety of different systems for different applications such as discovery or process chemistry. In every case, the hardware clicks into place in seconds without the need for tools and can be controlled in three ways:

1) Turn the control knob to change hot plate or circulator fluid temperature and magnetic or overhead stirrer speed

2) Edit and run profiles automatically from the Base Unit to control heating, cooling, stirring and reagent addition.Without PC control, the intelligent Base Unit can control circulator or reaction temperature, overhead stirrer speed and reagent addition from a pump. Data from sensors such as thermocouples, pH sensors, turbidity probes and stirrers are recorded by the Base Unit and can be downloaded to a USB stick

3) Use full PC software for complex recipe control, real time data plotting and control of third party hardware. Connect many Base Units for parallel chemistry.

The Base Unit has physical and electronic connections for other modules such as the Scorpion Overhead Stirrer (2101004), Magnetic Stirrer (2101002), Hotplate (2101001), Reaction Vessel Drip Tray (2101039), Temperature Node (2101021) (or Triple Node Socket, 2101024) and Support Rods (2101009) for mounting further apparatus
