If you do not understand these 3 words, google them: symptom, symptomatic and asymptomatic. Some of us were ignorant at Clarkson but not anymore.

How many young people under the age of 18 have died while having the Corona Virus in the state of California in the USA with a population of 39.5 million?
CDPH shows 104 as of May 9, 2023. This is 0.0002% of the California population. Have a health problem or over 80, yes it is dangerous but so is the Flu and Pneumonia.
Sweden with 10 million people never had any mask mandate and had the same results as the state of California! - - References: CDPH , Flu and Sweden

The EchoTherm RIC20 Series was designed for use in robotic systems. As such, it is a small, self contained unit that runs off 12 volts DC. Power is provided from a universal bench top power supply that takes 100VAC to 260VAC, 50/60Hz inputs and converts that to 12 volts DC for the RIC20 series. The unit comes with an RS232 cable for connecting it to a PC via any open serial port.

The Serial Command Set is provided with the unit. It gives the user the information needed to control any RIC20 Series unit. Any number of units can be connected to a PC using any of the available serial ports on the computer. After the RIC20 has been instructed to go to a temperature, the unit can be disconnected from the computer and the computer can be used to instruct another RIC20 using the same serial port on the computer. The unit will retain its instructions when disconnected from the computer until told otherwise. As the unit heats or chills toward its target temperature, the LED on the unit will flash. When the flashing stops and the LED is constantly lit, the unit is stable at the target temperature.

If the user opts to run a complex temperature/time profile, the RIC20 can be instructed, via a computer and software generated by the user, to run the profile. In this case, the RIC20 unit will have to remain connected to the computer.

The RIC20 Series uses all the standard sample blocks listed below on the chilling/heating surface. Surface size is 2.875” (73 mm) x 4.375” (111 mm). Custom blocks are available on special order for any sample container.
