ATM KIOSK COOLING

ATM Kiosk Cooling:

TECA Model AHP-1200FFHC was chosen by our customer to provide thermal management to an ATM kiosk.

Electronics components often require cooling AND heating. The TECA cooler provides both heating and cooling to the kiosk. This ATM kiosk will be installed in dozens of locations with the TECA air conditioner, AHP-1200FFHC.

Thermoelectric technology is a reliable and low maintenance way to protect electronics. Utilizing the Peltier effect, TECA enclosure coolers (and heaters) do not require coolant, chemicals, compressor or filter.

KIOSK COOLING

Kiosk Cooling:

A company specializing in fleet management and motor pool software required multiple outdoor, self service kiosks to be placed in various environments throughout the USA. TECA’s AHP-470XEHC thermoelectric air conditioner is an ideal solution, providing needed cooling to sensitive parts within the sun-exposed kiosk. The AHP-470XEHC air conditioner cools the kiosk without taking up much space and it is suitable for various environments including NEMA-4 enclosures. Heat/Cool is optional, as are external covers for aesthetic purposes.

Whether space is restricted inside or outside your kiosk, TECA offers three mounting styles for kiosk cooling: Through, Internal and External.

OUTDOOR KIOSK COOLING

Outdoor Kiosk Cooling:

TECA Model AHP-1200XE air conditioners cool over 30 outdoor electronic information kiosks in dozens of State Parks in the U.S. Our customer launched the first electronic interpretive information program specifically designed for visitors to a State Park system by implementing the kiosks.

This award-winning project has received significant attention across the country and TECA is proud to be part of it. The AHP-1200XE can be customized to fit your kiosk’s needs.

GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY SYSTEM

TECA Model AHP-1801XPHC-1 Thermoelectric Air Conditioner is used to enable the safe installation of a gas chromatography system into hazardous locations. Most installations are rated Class 1, Groups C & D, Division II. However in some cases the installations require Group B and/or Group A. TECA’s AHP-1801XPHC-1 maintains the interior of the Process Analyzer Enclosure at a control temperature of around 70o °F.  It meets the various requirements of all the installation environments.

This system is installed in Refining, Petrochemical, Upstream and other applications requiring the aforementioned safety ratings. Controlling the temperature of the equipment enclosure rather than the entire shelter allows for far more economical plant installations even in very cold or very hot environments.

Our customer reports:
“Simply protecting our Process Analyzer Enclosure from direct sunlight and precipitation is enough using the AHP-1801XPHC-1.  The TECA Air Conditioner has plenty of capacity to handle the most demanding environments such as the Texas Gulf Coast and even in Alberta, CA. See the actual plant installation picture where 3 Process Enclosures are shown. The TECA Air Conditioners are clearly evident below each analyzer.  These units have been in operation for more than 2 years without maintenance, without downtime.  This says a lot about the capability and capacity of the TECA product in a tough environment.  And the analyzers have performed flawlessly delivering control quality composition data to the plant process control computer.

TIGHT TEMPERATURE CONTROL

Tight Temperature Control Within Small Enclosure:

A manufacturer of specialty materials required cooling and heating of small enclosures. The system pictured here is used for the mixing of helium and hydrogen with dew point control.

TECA Model AHP-301FFHC is used with a TECA PID temperature controller to regulate the temperature of the enclosure in order to establish the moisture content of the “wet gas”, which is blended with dry gas to fix the dew point by way of the Buck Equation.

The customer is pleased with the results and continues to build more systems using TECA air conditioners and temperature controllers.

the AHP-301FF series is now replaced by newer model the AHP-401 series.

COOLING LARGER ENCLOSURES

Cooling Larger enclosures Than Ever Before:

A user of the Model AHP-6250 Solid-State Air Conditioner gives a wonderful example of the benefit of TECA’s newly introduced line of high-capacity thermoelectric air conditioners.

Designed to cool larger enclosures than was previously practical with thermoelectric technology, the AHP-6250 is one of the largest models in this group. For example, the enclosure pictured here is about 8 x 6 x 3 feet. The customer is able to achieve large enclosure cooling with a single thermoelectric air conditioner. Thermoelectric cooling is reliable and maintenance free.

TECA’s new high-capacity line has some thoughtful design features, as seen pictured here on the installed AHP-6250. The cold side (internal to enclosure) has a low profile, which translates into less intrusion into the enclosure, giving the user more room for whatever the enclosure is meant to hold. The robust mounting flange, gasket and hardware and centrally located power input contribute to user-friendly installation. Finally, high air-flow fans and high fin-density heat sinks on the cold side maximize performance and minimize condensation. An integral condensate removal system absorbs condensation and transports it to the hot side, where it gets evaporated into the ambient.

COMMUNICATIONS

Communications, Cooling Battery Bank:

Maintain the temperature of a battery bank in a Class 1 Division 2 explosion proof environment to power portable communications equipment. A special purpose vehicle manufacturer needed to maintain the temperature of a bank of batteries to maintain maximum performance.

With our recommendation, the customer selected the TECA Model AHP-1800XP, because it is the only NEMA4X air conditioner available off-the-shelf, which is also certified for C1D2 use. The power source was able to meet the requirement of operation in a Class 1 Division 2 explosion proof environment, to support portable communications systems at car racing venues.

HAZARDOUS ENVIRONMENT

Hazardous Environment:

A custom design solution based on a standard thermoelectric air conditioner AHP-1801X was developed to meet European hazardous environment specification (ATEX) for a customer that was in need of such a system in a very short time.

CORROSIVE ENVIRONMENT

Corrosive Environment:

The AHP-1802XPHC-2 met the customers need in an application where other similar products could not function due to extreme corrosive environment.

The TECA design team in a short notice was able to provide a solution based on a standard AHP-1800X thermoelectric air conditioner.

COOLING MEDICINE IN TRANSIT

A customer designs and installs custom systems for public safety vehicles. TECA’s AHP-1800-Series Air Conditioner was the perfect fit for keeping medicine cool in transport and in the field. With multiple input voltage and environment configurations available, the customer will be using more TECA air conditioners in other vehicles.

The tight mounting space shown in these photos illustrates the value of thermoelectric air conditioners. There are no filters to change, no chemical coolants and there are no moving parts except the fans. The customer can expect years upon years of service from this unit, virtually maintenance free!
