Low Power Consumption
Another useful feature of the CAL3K Calorimeters
The average power consumption is about 0.6 watt. However, just after firing the power consumption increases to 24 watt for the CAL3K-A and CAL3K-AP. Other units without the ATC (Automatic Temperature Control - Heater) require not more than 1.2 watt. This means that the CAL3K does not contribute significantly to heating the environment. It can operate from a 12V battery for prolonged time.
