Product Description The Forma 1400 Series also keeps the room temperature at a comfortable level due to its advanced motor technology that reduces power consumption by at least 50%. Transparent glass side walls and a coated back wall ensure a bigger, brighter work area by reducing harsh reflections and glare.

Enhanced Safety:
- The motorized sash automatically stops at the safe working height of 10 inches.
- The Forma 1400 Series ensures operator safety through a built-in microprocessor-based controller that continuously monitors and maintains airflow performance and displays the read-out as a highly visible real-time bar graph.
- In the event of an unsafe condition, both audible and visual alarms are provided.
- UV operation (optional) is disabled unless the sliding slash is fully closed.

Greater Convenience:
- Push-button sash operation allows easy, one-hand opening and closing. The optional foot switch allows operators to open the cabinet when their hands are full.
- The hinged cabinet front allows the inner surface of the sash to be easily and thoroughly cleaned, while rounded corners facilitate thorough, effective cleaning of the work area.
- An intuitive user interface enables easy programming of all key functions, including UV timer, auto-start and alarms.

The Thermo Scientific Forma 1400 Series provides a constant read-out of airflow conditions to ensure operator safety. A microprocessor-based controller continuously monitors and displays both down-flow and inflow air velocities.
A bar graph indicates filter load and allows for timely filter change scheduling. Visual and audible alarms warn the operator of potential hazards. Motorized sliding sash ensures that the window is set to a safe working
height every time you use it, a feature that cannot be guaranteed by manually operated windows. The hinged front facilitates cleaning of the sash interior.

Air velocity, inflow: 100 - 110 LFPM
Air velocity, downflow: 50-60 LFPM
