VC 10 lite

Speed-controlled, universal vacuum controller for controlled evacuation of air (gas) from laboratory equipment, as well as for classical separation, filtration or drying tasks in the laboratory. The controller is ready-to-use in numerous applications and can be easily installed.

VC 10 lite is only compatible with the vacuum pump VACSTAR digital. A cable connection between pump and controller is required.
Manual and programmable mode available.


  • Valve cleaning function for long service life
  • High energy efficiency thanks to device-to-device communication: control of the circulator by connecting the vacuum controller with PC 1.3 data cable (available as accessory)
  • Integrated ventilation valve for simple pressure equalization and aeration with inert gas after process completion
  • VENT short key button allows pressure equalization during a running process
  • Program function: up to ten user-defined programs can be saved, with up to ten pressure/time sequences
  • USB / RS232 interfaces for connection with the laboratory software labworldsoft®
  • Electronic control system for improved process efficiency and higher solvent recovery rate
  • High energy efficiency thanks to device-to-device communication (vacuum controller to recirculating chiller)

For additional safety for users and environment, the use of the VSE 1 vacuum safety emission condenser is recommended, which prevents solvents from being released into the room air. The VSE 1 is available as an accessory.
