Thermoelectric Coolers

New High-Temperature Thermoelectric Coolers from Laird Thermal Systems Cool Optical Sensors in Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS)

Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) use a variety of imaging sensors, cameras and lasers to enhance vehicle safety and create better driving conditions. Most of these optical devices, including CMOS sensors and laser diodes, are heat sensitive and rely on high-resolution images for proper operation. Image quality can quickly deteriorate as the device temperatures rise above 60°C.

Thermoelectric coolers boost reliability

PowerCycling PCX Series thermoelectric coolers provide high reliability for demanding thermal cycling applications. Product series is designed to handle hundreds of thousands of thermal cycles, providing improved performance and long-life operation in testing applications. Products offer a robust construction with a flexible thermally conductive ‘soft layer’ to reduce mechanical stresses in thermal cycling applications. Devices extend the mean time between failure (MTBF) of point of care equipment, lowering the total cost of ownership.

PowerCycling PCX thermoelectric coolers for PCR tests

Point-of-care testing allows medical staff to accurately achieve real-time diagnostic results within an hour, rather than days. PCR-based point of care testing is considered the gold standard for diagnosing COVID-19 because it provides the fastest and most accurate test results. Portable point of care testing (POCT) equipment requires a sophisticated thermal management solution that can withstand mechanical stresses induced by rapid temperature changes.

Next Gen Thermoelectric Coolers for Optoelectronics

Date: Monday, September 13, 2021

Time: 12:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time

Duration: 1 hour

Complex manufacturing processes require advanced thermal management solutions to support heat removal and temperature stabilization of optic systems in a wide range of applications. For example, thermoelectric coolers provide superior spot cooling for laser optics and power sources to deliver robust, low-power, and maintenance-free operation. 

Cooling Solutions for Autonomous Systems

Advances in autonomous technologies, such as smart headlights, autonomous systems for collision avoidance, and infotainment systems, require enhanced thermal protection of critical electronics to ensure optimized performance. These emerging intelligent autonomous systems are increasingly complex while decreasing in size and weight. Packing more functionality into smaller footprints has increased the heat flux density and thermal challenges in autonomous systems.

UTX Series Thermoelectric Cooler

The new UltraTEC UTX Series is a high-performance thermoelectric cooler that is assembled with advanced thermoelectric materials and can boost cooling capacity by up to 10%. The UltraTEC UTX Series features a higher thermal insulating barrier when compared to standard materials creating a maximum temperature differential (ΔT) of 72°C. It features a high heat pump density, precise temperature control, reliable solid-state operation, and does not create any noise or vibration.

Advanced Thermoelectric Cooling for Optoelectronics

Optoelectronic devices require active cooling to maintain peak performance and long-life operation. The OptoTEC™ OTX/HTX is a miniature high-performance thermoelectric cooler that provides superior temperature stability meeting demands of high temperature optoelectronic applications.
