The Heraeus H540S is a platinum micro-heating element that is the perfect choice for applications where a tiny, yet accurate heat source is required. The heater consists of a 12 ohm platinum thin-film structure mounted on a thin ceramic substrate just 5.2 x 3.9 wide (just 1mm thick).
The H540S can be used to heat solids, liquids or gases with high accuracy and a short reaction time. So they can used to heat biopsy and tissue samples for medical analysis where a very localised heat-source is required. These micro-heaters offer long-term stability and excellent precision over a wide operating temperature range.
These miniature heaters are also interesting for heating laser crystals and for use in 3D printer applications for high-temperature printing materials. Already utilised in the e-cigarette and vaping markets, custom formats and combination heater/sensors are available for similar high volume applications.
