The Electron Dynamics' HPE series of heat pumps offer a fully integrated thermo-electric temperature control system in a convenient package. The HPE comprises fan, heatsink, thermo-electric cooler and thermal block constructed as a complete heat pump assembly.
By using the Peltier effect it can both heat and cool, so an HPE unit can effect precise servo-controlled thermal stabilisation when used in conjunction with one of our ETCS temperature controllers. Alternatively, it can be used in an unregulated mode from a 15 volt DC power supply.

ETCS Temperature Controllers

Designed mainly for use with the Electron Dynamics' HPE series of heat pumps, the ETCS temperature controllers enable precise control from -100 °C to +200 °C with a stability of 0.001 °C in varying ambient conditions.
The controllers are programmed using supplied PC software via a USB connection. Parameters such as output limits, PID terms, temperature alarms and operating modes can be set up. In addition, advanced features have been included to offer PID autotuning, temperature ramping and cycling.
As the configuration data is stored within the controller once programmed, the unit can be disconnected from the PC for stand-alone use. Remote operation and integration into a larger control system is possible.
We offer 3 models to complement our heat pumps - Standard (up to 5 A), Intermediate (Up to 10 A) and High Output (Up to 15 A) - as cased or bare PCB assemblies.
