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.

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.

The 2.4 Meter Mobile SATCOM Tactical Terminal (MSTT) is a lightweight, stand alone, trailer-mounted tri-band SATCOM terminal available to support worldwide, quick deployment satellite communications through military and commercial satellites.

It also uses a customized version of the solid state air conditioner AHP-1801X. It was designed and qualified for worldwide operation in tactical military environments.

Intermodal Control Cooling

Intermodal systems are increasingly upgrading to automate their processes. Where there is automation, there is a need for control cooling. TECA supports automation by protecting crucial electronics in control cabinets. This minimizes process time and maximizes productivity.

In this example, heat-sensitive electronics are installed in truck processing terminals. TECA Model AHP-1800XEHC offers heat and cool modes and keeps the equipment within safe and operable temperatures.

PORTABLE SECURITY EQUIPMENT

Portable Security Equipment:

Site monitor and security equipment for oil fields and transfer stations needed more security. A portable enclosure housing cameras, WI-FI access, antennas and a Mac Mini computer inside leveraging the Mac platform to provide virtually instant access, hi speed, via “Wild Blue”. The system will be like a watchdog that they can strap on wherever they need the monitoring.

With a slight modification an AHP-1200XE thermoelectric cooler provided the best solution while keeping the NEMA-4 rating of the enclosure.

Fire Safety Switches & Alarm Enclosure

TECA provides standard off the shelf as well as custom designs to meet the needs of the end user. Alarm enclosures can be exposed to some of the harshest conditions like the extremes of live-fire heat and hose-down. The alarm enclosure pictured here is for fire safety and switches. The transparent plastic enclosure is accessible and secure while being cooled to desired temperatures under harsh firefighting conditions. In this example TECA provided custom modifications to provide for redundancy and mounting requirements specified by the end user.

Contact teca@thermoelectric.com to inquire about custom designs for your needs. Our friendly sales team looks forward to hearing from you!

 

COMMUNICATIONS COOLING

Long-Term Communications Cooling

A common use for thermoelectric air conditioners is the cooling of electronics cabinets.

These photos show an outdoor communications cabinet being cooled with a system of TECA air conditioners that have been customized for the end user. The units photographed here are over 12 years old, a testament to the reliability of TECA’s thermoelectric air conditioners.

Also worth mentioning is the lack of maintenance that thermoelectric air conditioners require. With no moving parts except for the fans, no filters to change and no chemical coolants, TECA air conditioners are an ideal and environmentally friendly solution for remote areas.

A major manufacturer of communications equipment was to go into production of special equipment enclosures, then encountered unforeseen problems with overheating electronics deep inside. The customer wanted air conditioning, but specified that no part of the air conditioner could protrude outside of their enclosure.

TECA designed a little air conditioner inside ducts for hot air exhaust. This way the air conditioner is actually housed entirely inside the enclosure and our customer continues production.

COMPACT MILITARY AIR CONDITIONER

The contact to engineering read pretty much like this:

  • Wants A/C, 17.5 x 5.5 footprint, 150 W @ 0 Dt, He is in a hurry
  • Desert Application
  • Unit will require transport in, then it will sit for months, then it will go somewhere else
  • Single set point 35 °C control?
  • Size, can go 6″ on the outside

We suggested AHP-1200X, he said they didn’t choose because of no DC.  We could make it DC!  Nope, won’t fit, air flows are bad, 24 VDC, running off generator, NEMA 4X, Mil grade fans, 50 °C max, urgent need!

A little more than month later the order was placed and about 6 weeks after that a batch of custom air conditioners was being shipped.
