CP-031HT Peltier-Thermoelectric Cold-Plate Cooler
Heats as well as cools (when used with heat & cool / bipolar controller).
The High Temperature (HT) Series can be used to heat to 100°C. Non-HT Series units
are limited to 70°C.
Our smallest and lowest cost standard cold plate cooler.
Provides effective, direct-contact cooling or heating.
Powered by 12 VDC; its low power consumption makes it compatible with a wide
range of our temperature controllers.
Threaded holes are located in the cold plate for easy attachment of a temperature
sensor, interface plates, and other cooled plates.
Can be customized for production-sized orders to meet your exact requirements.
CE marked, RoHS compliant.

Example: You need to maintain the cold plate at 10 °C while in a 25 °C ambient. The cooler can remove a maximum of
approximately 22 W of heat from the cold plate. If the heat gain from the ambient plus anything else actively generating
heat exceeds this, you would need a cooler with a larger cooling capacity or multiple coolers.
