TEC Controller

Choose from the following products:

TEC Controller – Series P-1

The Series P-1 is a high performance, linear analog controller designed for use with a wide variety of thermoelectric coolers. Flexible configuration, mounting, and temperature control options allow for a high degree of customization by the end user.

TEC Controller – Series 860

The Series 860 is a two-channel, rack-mounted thermoelectric cooler controller with each channel capable of providing up to 150 watts of power.

TEC Controller – Series 850

The Series 850 Rack Mounted Thermoelectric Cooler Controller offers a wide range of features and options that make it suitable for requirements whether 10 watts of power are required or 1,000 watts.

TEC Controller – Series 800

The Series 800 Thermoelectric Cooler Controller represents a significant advance in state-of-the-art TEC controllers.

TEC Controllers over the last 50 years have increased in popularity and find wide use in research and development, home appliances, consumer electronics, and in the defense industry to mention a few. Among the uses of TEC modules include: temperature control of infrared detectors, laser diodes, night vision devices, black body references, satellites, chilled mirror dew point hygrometers, portable home coolers, heat seeking missiles, et. al. One of the redeeming values of TEC’s are their ability to hold a constant and precise temperature over a wide range and, on a relatively small surface area. For some applications where tight temperature control is required, to achieve this the modules are  paired up with thermoelectric cooler controllers (TEC controllers). The TEC temperature controllers are designed to provide very precise control of the TEC(s) via feedback from a temperature sensor placed in thermal proximity to the TEC(s). Some TEC controllers provide temperature control better than +/- 0.1C. However, the overall accuracy of the temperature control system takes into account a number of factors, not the least of which is the accuracy and repeatability of the TEC temperature controller itself.

Alpha Omega Instruments product line of TEC controllers and TEC controller boards represent a significant advance in the state-of-the-art of thermoelectric cooler controllers.  It is no secret that in the past, thermoelectric cooler controllers required a significant amount of hands-on operation to provide satisfactory performance, particularly when variations in the load and/or environmental conditions existed. Alpha Omega Instruments’ Series 800 / 850 / 860 TEC Controllers utilize advanced control technology in combination with auto-tuning capabilities to provide unprecedented performance.  The eloquence of the Series 800 / 850/ 860 TEC Controllers are their ease of use. The controllers feature a user-friendly front control panel containing  switches that allow access to the instrument’s control settings. In addition, there are two (2) LED digital displays that simultaneously display both actual temperature and set-point temperature. Each controller features proportional, integral, and derivative (PID) control that provides exceptionally tight control over a wide temperature range, as well as rapid response to changes in operating conditions.
