High Efficiency TEC Controllers and Their Associated Components
TEC (Thermo-Electric Cooler, or Peltier Cooler) is a semiconductor device which can cool down or heat up the temperature of a thermal load depending on the direction of the current going through the two terminals of the TEC. By using a TEC controller, the thermal load temperature can be regulated precisely by controlling the direction and magnitude of the current going through the TEC.
We have a variety of TEC controllers.
TECA1-XV-XV-D series TEC controllers features high efficiency, high stability, high reliability and compact sizes. The maximum current is 2.5A. They are often used for controlling temperature in laser systems.
TEC5V4A-D is almost the same TEC controller as the above TECA1-XV-XV-D TEC controller, except that the maximum output current is 4A, as opposed to the 2.5V.
TEC5V6A-D TEC controller has the same pin out as the above 2 TEC controllers
ATEC24V10A-D TEC controllers is under development. It allows high input voltage, high output current, works under high power efficiency, and has a small size.
ATFC105D is a digitally controlled TEC controller. It comes with a key pad and a digital display, can be programmed on the field, has a high input voltage and high output current capability.
Many of these TEC controllers work well with our TEC Modules, Thermistors and Thermally Conductive Epoxy. Price List For TEC Controllers RoHS Certificate of Compliance for TEC Controllers Design Notes Related to TEC Controllers

TEC controller ATFC105D is designed for regulating an enclosed chamber temperature by driving a TEC array and a fan array. This TEC controller ATFC105D is a digitally controlled TEC/fan assembly controller for driving TEC assemblies with fans and monitoring the working status at the same time. It allows setting the parameters of the set-point temperature window, the safety temperature window, monitoring the heat sink hot side temperature, heat sink cold side temperature, and the chamber temperature.
The TEC Controller Evaluation Board TECEV104 is consisted of a complete tunable compensation network and application circuit for using our TECA1 series TEC controller to drive a TEC. It can set the output voltage limit, tune the compensation network, set the set-point temperature, has an LED for indicating the temperature loop stat-us of the controller, and has numerous connection pads for making connections with external components and instruments. It is 100 % lead (Pb)-free and RoHS compliant.
ATW3A314 is a compact high efficiency electronic module, designed for controlling TECs (Thermo-Electric Coolers) for regulating a target object temperature to be within a pre-set temperature window. The main advantage to use this controller is to save energy for battery powered systems: during most of the operating time, the target is within the preset window, and the TEC controller is not turned on, only occationally, the target temperature falls outside the preset window and the TEC controller is turned on to bring the target temperature back to be within the limits.
