getting Rotor No. error despite correct code entered
Our RC6+ is giving the "Rotor No." error despite the correct code being entered. We have tried two rotors and get the same problem. The centrifuge will not run due to this. How does it sense which rotor is present and how can we correct this?Reply

what is difference between RC6 and RC6 Plus?
We have a RC6 centrifuge that when started up the screen reads RC6 Plus. Is the difference between RC6 and Plus just programming?Reply
