CP-121HT Peltier-Thermoelectric Cold-Plate Cooler
Heats as well as cools (when used with heat & cool / bipolar controller).
Can be used for heating to 100 °C.
Ideal for medium to large heat loads, such as laser diodes, medical and laboratory
instruments, and thermal stabilization of electronic components.
Provides effective direct-contact cooling which is ideal for precision temperature
control.
Heat-sink air flows along the length of fins (in one end, out the opposite end).
No additional modifications needed for bench-top use.
Low fan noise (two fans, 39 dBA each) is beneficial in laboratory instrumentation.
Threaded holes are located in cold plate for easy attachment of a temperature sensor,
interface plate, LC-SSX1 liquid exchanger, or other object.
Customizations are available in production volumes for OEM users.
CE marked, RoHS compliant.

Example: You need to maintain the cold plate at 20 °C while in a 50 °C ambient. The cooler can remove a maximum of
approximately 65 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.

else generating heat), you would need multiple coolers or a cooler with a larger heating capacity.
