The AC-055 thermoelectric (Peltier) air cooler is specially designed for cooling electronics enclosures when a large temperature difference from ambient is not required. While not specifically designed for refrigeration it can be used in these applications as long as a large temperature difference below ambient is not required. It can, as with all of our coolers, both heat and cool when used with the proper temperature controller.

The AC-055 is environmentally protected: the hot-side fan is sealed against moisture and dust (IP55), the external heat sink is anodized to prevent corrosion, and the finger guards are stainless steel. The unit is rated to maintain an enclosure’s NEMA 4 rating.

A low-profile internal fan minimizes the amount of internal volume required by the cooler. Internal air is pulled primarily through one end of the fins and blown out the fan towards the center of the enclosure. This configuration allows one end of the internal fins to be placed close to the wall of the enclosure without hindering performance, and the equipment that needs the most cooling can be located in the cooled air stream.

The AC-055 is powered by 12 VDC and works with all of our temperature controllers. If more capacity is needed, or there is a need to distribute the cooling throughout a larger cabinet, multiple coolers can be paralleled and regulated by one temperature controller. The electrical connections are located on the internal side of the cooler keeping wiring inside the enclosure. (Care should be taken so that condensation is not allowed to form on the cold side heat exchanger where it could come in contact with the power wires.)

The AC-055’s low power consumption yields low operating costs. As an added benefit the power supply will generate less waste heat, meaning the power supply has less of an impact when located inside the enclosure.

Note: Larger power supplies are used when controlling multiple units with one temperature controller.

  • TC-24-10.jpg

    TC-24-10

    $119.00

    The Model TC-24-10 is a RoHS compliant proportional-integral (PI) temperature controller developed for applications requiring a low cost, basic temperature controller. Set-point and tuning adjustments are made via potentiometer. It can modulate power from 9V up to 26 V at currents up to 10 A when using a single power supply. The controller can also modulate from 0 V up to 50 V when using two power supplies, making this a good choice for controlling low-voltage modules. As with all of our controllers, a standard temperature sensor (15K thermistor) is included. When it is ordered with a thermoelectric cooling assembly and a power supply, the necessary hook-up cables are also included.

  • TC-720 Temperature Controller

    TC-720

    $618.00

    The TC-720 is a bipolar, heat and cool, thermoelectric temperature controller with USB communications. It is capable of controlling up to 36 volts and 20 amps. One standard thermistor, model MP-3193, is included. A second sensor can be attached for monitoring and alarm purposes. The controller is housed in a die-cast aluminum box and incorporates a keypad and a liquid-crystal display. The display allows the user to monitor the sensor temperature, power output level, and menu settings. The integrated keypad accesses an easy-to-use menu system, allowing the user to adjust all of the basic controller parameters such as the set temperature, tuning parameters, and alarm parameters. The controller can also be connected to a computer via USB for more advanced program control as well as data graphing and data logging using the supplied software. The software is shipped as a stand-alone program, but the LabVIEW source code for that program (version 2013 and higher) is also available upon request.

    TC-36-25-RS485

    $459.00

    The Model TC-36-25 RS485 is a bi-polar (heat and cool) proportional-integral-derivative temperature controller that can modulate power input from 12 V up to 36 V, or from 0 V to 36 V with a second power supply, at currents of up to 25 A. The controller comes standard with a temperature sensor (thermistor), but it can also be used with common 10 k ohm thermistors. Multiple controllers can be daisy-chained together and run off a single communication port using the optional RS485 Adapter (USB). Windows-compatible software is provided for easily programming the controller. Also, the necessary hook-up cables are included when a thermoelectric cooling assembly and power supply are ordered with the controller.
