Home Homeothermic/Temperature Control Temperature Control Products Thermopads

Larger Views



These pads are constructed of a clinical white ABS Plastic with indicator light. There is a thermal cut-off built into the unit. This new style Thermopad replaces the MK I version.

A number of improvements have been incorporated into the design. An added feature is the fluid retaining surround (not available on the 155mm square model).

Full Description Back to Top

Heated pads are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and wattage’s to accommodate the many demands made upon them. A temperature control unit is an essential precaution to monitor the animal’s body temperature and ensure it is maintained at the desired level. Hot spots can occur on heated pads due to a build up of heat at points of maximum contact or where fur is very dense – heat is not lost from these areas as quickly as from other parts of the pad and can cause overheating; this needs to be controlled.

IMS has designed a temperature control unit to do exactly this. The K-temp can be used with most types of 240V heated pads, which plug directly into the unit. Operation of the K-Temp is straightforward. The unit is connected to a 240V mains supply, and the heated pad plugged into the unit. The desired maximum and minimum readings are then set for rectal temperature and the animal/pad interface.

The anesthetized animal is placed on the pad. A rectal probe is inserted and the interface probe positioned beneath the animal at the point of maximum contact. The K-Temp has two LCD displays which display the rectal and interface temperatures (accurate to within ±0.2?C). Should they move out of the pre-set ranges, audible and visible alarms are activated.

The unit can also be programmed to switch the heating pad on or off if the rectal temperature falls below or rises above the limit. Likewise, if the interface temperature rises above the pre-set limit the pad is automatically switched off, regardless of rectal temperature. This prevents the build up of localised hot spots under the animal.

The background heating rate can be manually set to within 0 to 75% of the full rate when the probe temperatures are within the programmed limits to give fine control of body temperature.

Internal power supplies are mains derived to eliminate false readings due to battery wear, although a battery is used to retain stored limit data.

Notes: The K-Temp is supplied with an interface and a small sized rectal probe. Large probes are available upon request. If ordering spare probes for K-Temp at a later date, please indicate serial number of unit to be used with probe for
calibration purposes.

Please make sure the pad you choose is powerful enough to supply the heat required.
The K-Temp has an IEC 3 pin socket (250V 5A) and compatible plugs must be fitted to the heated pad lead. A plug is supplied with each K-Temp unit. Full working instructions are provided with each unit.
