A high-power thermoelectric cooler controller has been launched by Elite Thermal Engineering. The MC-1000 is configurable to drive all of the company’s thermoelectric cold plates with up to 600 W of power output, and auxiliary power for fans or pumps up to 40 W. To operate the controller, the user wires the thermoelectric cooler, fan and temperature sensor to the terminal block on the back of the unit, plugs in the provided power cord and flips the switch. A knob in the front panel adjusts the temperature, and an LCD displays the set and actual temperatures. The device can be factory-configured for various power output mixes, with power output starting at tens of watts, voltage from 12 to 48 VDC and current up to 12 A. It also can be used as a heater controller and is designed to work with a digital temperature sensor, which is shipped as an accessory. It is immune to electromagnetic compatibility noise and can be placed up to 20 m away from the controller.
