All Hettich centrifuges are designed to properly identify the rotor upon installation via a series of magnets in the bottom of the rotor. These magnets are set in a special pattern to send specific information to the centrifuge. Information such as the rotor part number (rotor code), maximum rotor speed (Nmax) and present centrifuging radius (R) (on C panels only) will be displayed on the centrifuge screen.

Topic: Preventative Maintenance
The outer surfaces of Hettich centrifuges are constructed of various painted metal surfaces and molded plastics. These surfaces stand up to most regular cleaning products such as "409", "Fantastic", "Simple Green", "Windex", etc.
Hettich suggests to avoid cleaners with ammonia as they may interact with LCD screens.
