The heater in the Pioreactor wetware can be programmed to control the temperature of the vial in automated ways. Pioreactor is pre-programmed with the following temperature automations. In the below automations, values highlighted
like so are configurable.
The Thermostat automation will try to maintain a
target temperature using a feedback loop. You can select a
target temperature (between ambient temperature and 50℃), and the automation will vary the onboard heater to maintain that temperature in the vial. At room temperature, the Pioreactor will be able to achieve up to about 43℃.
Only record temperature
This automation is the simplest automation: do not apply any external heating. Reading and logging of temperature will still occur.
