Overview

The Series 860 Dual Channel Rack Mounted Thermoelectric Cooler Controller, like its single channel counterpart the Series 850 Rack Mounted Thermoelectric Cooler Controller, represents a significant advance in the state-of-the-art of thermoelectric cooler (TEC) controllers. The Series 860 provides two separate TEC Controllers in one 19″ rack.

It’s 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. The Series 860 high power TEC Controller utilizes advanced control technology in combination with auto-tuning capabilities to provide unprecedented performance at a very affordable price. Unlike many industrial controllers that have cluttered front panels, the Series 860 TEC Controller features a user-friendly front control panel design. The  Series 860 TEC Controller features full 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. The auto-tuning feature helps to ensure maximum performance over a broad spectrum of operating conditions. Auto-tuning sets the critical PID terms to match the conditions of the application and provides fast response while minimizing overshoot and undershoot. From the user’s perspective, the need to make frequent manual adjustments has been virtually eliminated. For unique applications, users have the option to manually adjust the instrument’s control parameters as desired. RS485 Serial Communications is standard. RS232C is optional. The Series 860 Thermoelectric Cooler Controller has five standard output power ratings for each channel:

  • 30 watts – 2 A @ 15 VDC
  • 60 watts – 4 A @ 15 VDC
  • 90 watts – 6 A @ 15 VDC
  • 120 watts – 8 A @ 15 VDC
  • 150 watts – 10 A @ 15 VDC
