Thermoelectric coolers cope with harsh test standards
Featuring next-generation thermoelectric materials, the coolers offer a 10% boost in cooling capacity, greater temperature differential, and higher efficiency than standard thermoelectric coolers.
The Laird Thermal Systems OptoTEC OTX/HTX Series are miniature thermoelectric coolers offering high-heat-pumping capacity and improved temperature stability for space-constrained optoelectronic applications.
Featuring precise temperature controls with up to 10 watts of cooling power, the coolers maintain a temperature differential of up to 82°C at Qc = 0, with a hot side temperature at 50°C.
The OTX thermoelectric cooler is designed for operating temperatures up to 120°C, while the HTX thermoelectric cooler uses a higher-temperature construction to operate in temperatures up to 150°C.
The OptoTEC OTX/HTX Series surpasses Telcordia GR-468 CORE qualifications to withstand harsh mechanical and environmental test standards and manufacturing process controls, ensuring high repeatability and long-life operation.
The tiny devices, available in footprints as small as 3.3 mm × 4.9 mm, are specifically designed to control the temperature of heat-sensitive optoelectronic components used in optical transceivers, lidar, CMOS and infrared (IR) range sensor applications.
