Default Capabilities of this controller?

Hi,
I work at a medical research institution and they were throwing out an instrument that included a temp control function. Figured I could take out the controller and use it somewhere in my brewery.

The control is mtw11 from lae, instructions and installation can be found here:

I'm not big into electronics (yet), but am wondering what the capabilities of this controller might be. Any thoughts?
Thanks! Adam

Thanks! After testing, looks like the temp control maxes out @ 70*C/158*F, so would this be suitable for mash tun control?
