Thermoelectric assemblies optimize thermal performance in outdoor environments
Subs & Systems
Laird Thermal Systems has built a series of thermoelectric assemblies (TEAs) created for use in outdoor environments. The Outdoor Cooler Series are compact, more efficient air-to-air TEAs for cooling and heating electronics in outdoor environments. The TEAs offer a lower total cost of ownership by maintaining the relevant temperature range using minimal energy due to its high coefficient of performance. Due to its rugged steady state construction, the TEAs need less maintenance than standard compressor-based air conditioners.
Designed for applications like enclosures, outdoor kiosks, battery backup cabinets, and electronic cabinets, the devices run at nominal voltages at either 24VDC or 48VDC and provide dependable cooling capacities ranging from 100W to 480W.
"The emergence of high-speed networks including 4G/5G and always-on broadband services has placed tremendous demands on current and future telecommunication and computing infrastructures. Greater functionality and higher speeds are contributing to increased thermal issues in networking and telecommunications infrastructure equipment. The Outdoor Cooler TEAs can easily be retrofitted as a substitute for compressor-based air conditioners to offer significant energy, maintenance and cost savings," said Andrew Dereka, product director at Laird Thermal Systems.
