Description by the supplier

Einstein@Home is a distributed computing project that uses idle computer time to search for gravitational waves and other phenomena in data collected by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO). It is a volunteer computing project that relies on the contributions of individuals around the world who donate their idle computer time to help analyze the data.

Einstein@Home is named after Albert Einstein, whose theory of general relativity predicted the existence of gravitational waves. These waves are thought to be ripples in the fabric of space-time that are created by the acceleration of massive objects, such as black holes and neutron stars. The detection of gravitational waves is a major milestone in the field of physics, as it provides a new way to study the universe and test the predictions of Einstein's theory.

Einstein@Home is managed by a team of scientists and researchers from institutions around the world, and it is supported by a number of organizations, including the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics. The project is open to anyone who is interested in contributing their idle computer time to the search for gravitational waves.

AREC 7 Hot Plate Magnetic Stirrer Velp

Powerful stirring for your lab reactions AREC 7 features state-of-the-art heating plate technology,  (more)designed by VELP, which guarantees temperature homogeneity, thermal efficiency and long-lasting heating performance. You can rely on the AREC 7 for demanding laboratory reactions, stirring volumes up to 15 liters (H2O), from 50 up to 1500 rpm, thanks to the powerful motor and magnetic coupling. The electronic control adapts the stirring speed to any variation in the viscosity of the medium. SAFETY AND EASE OF USE FOR LAB OPERATORS The AREC 7 stirrer with heating plate guarantees a superior level of safety and protection for laboratory operators, as it is entirely made of technopolymer and is equipped with an extremely resistant ceramic plate, ideal for high resistance to acids, bases and solvents . When the plate temperature is above 50°C and the heating function is not active, a safety message is displayed. The control panel is positioned at a safe distance from heat sources and the technopolymer structure is carefully designed so that accidental spills of liquids cannot reach the electronics. The extremely durable ceramic plate is easy to clean and resistant to acids, bases and solvents. Using a damp cloth, all residues will be easily removed. SAVE TIME AND SPACE WITH THE NEW CONTROL PANEL Thanks to the extremely bright and easy-to-read digital display, the temperature can be monitored constantly. Two new comfortable knobs: the one on the left for the temperature (up to 550°C), the one on the right for the stirring speed (up to 1500 rpm). The innovative low profile design for exceptional comfort above the bench and inside the lab hood. It is not possible to connect AREC 7 to the Cloud Ermes system.
