AC-053

Capacity Rating: 51 watts at a 0°C temperature difference.
Example Applications: Biomedical equipment and small-to-medium sized electronics enclosures.
Features: This cooler is powered by 24 VDC, has a NEMA 12 rating, and can be customized to achieve NEMA 4. The external heat-sink fan blows down the length of the heat sink, perpendicular to the direction of air flow of the internal fins. This provides unique options for routing air flow in instrument cabinets. It can be used with the TC-24-10, TC-720 series, TC-36-25 series, and the TC-48-20 series temperature controllers.

The AC-053 air uses two thermoelectric modules and high-density bonded-fin heat sinks on both sides of the exchanger to yield a high performance in a small space.  The low thermal resistance of the internal heat sink keeps the temperature difference between the internal air and the fins at a minimum.  This helps prevent frost when cooling to near freezing temperatures.  The low fan noise of the external fan (39 dBA) makes this cooler ideal for laboratory instrumentation where quiet operation is desirable.

The heat sinks (fins) are configured to allow unique options for mounting the cooler and routing air flow within equipment.  Outside the enclosure air enters the fan end of the heat sink, is forced through the fins, and exits at the opposite side.  Inside the enclosure air is pulled in by the two the fans, blown down onto the fins, and then exits both sides.  The internal air flow is perpendicular to that of the external air flow, which makes it easier to mount the cooler on the side of some enclosures.  One of the air exit paths inside the enclosure can even be restricted/blocked–typically the impact on performance is minimal.

The AC-053 is powered by 24 VDC, it has a NEMA 12 rating, and can be customized to achieve NEMA 4.  The low power consumption makes this cooler compatible with all of our temperature controllers.  Like all of our coolers, it can be easily customized to meet your production requirements:  special wiring configurations, smaller heat sinks, different operating voltages, lower power consumption, etc.

• No load cooling to 46 °C below ambient.
• Compact, high-fin density heat sink and cold sink for high performance in a small space.
• Low maintenance with no moving parts, except the fans.
• External heat sink fan blows down the length of the heat sink providing for a different option of easy routing of air flow.
• CE marked, RoHS compliant

  • TC-36-25-RS485.jpg

    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. The software is shipped as a stand-alone program, but the LabVIEW source code (version 2011 and higher) is available upon request.

  • TC-48-20.jpg

    TC-48-20

    $299.00

    The TC-48-20 is an easy to use yet powerful cool-only or heat-only PWM temperature controller. It is housed in a die-cast aluinum box, incorporates a keypad and display, and is capable of controlling from 0 to 50 volts and up to 20 amps. Two versatile alarm outputs are included, each capable of switching up to 1 amp of current. If a true linear-output control system is desired (for applications extremely sensitive to electrical noise) the TC-48-20 can be used as the control head for high-power, variable-output linear supplies. Most control parameters can be programmed via the built-in keypad, but the controller can also be connected to a computer via an optional RS232 serial cable for more advanced program control as well as data graphing and data logging. The software is shipped as a stand-alone program, but the LabVIEW source code (version 2011 and higher) is also available upon request.

  • 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-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.
