The applications for AHP-1802XE’s are Vestas wind turbines, one located in Greece and one in the south of Japan.
“We are installing sensitive measurement equipment, and need to control the inside temperature of the measurement panel. One panel is in each of the rotors in the hub and the two others are in the nacelles (rotating and non rotating). We have just decided to make the two panels into one in the nacelle (where the panel in not rotating).”
The steel company from Maryland had some enclosures with 4 drives each on some cranes. The high temperature in the steel mill was causing excessive shutdowns. Leaving the enclosure open in this sort of environment just wouldn’t do. Nor would conventional air conditioners survive the shake rattle and bake of the electrical enclosures on these FHP-1501XE 250VDC overhead cranes. On top of all that the only power they had was a widely varying 250 VDC. Which we found out later had some very nasty spikes which caused everyone a few headaches. But the headaches were cured and the customized FHP-1501XE solid state air conditioners continue to run.
How could the company afford custom units? With a streamlined approach where design engineers and the end users actually communicate on a frequent basis with known goals, expectations and commitment from each end. TECA loves happy customers.
Ruggedized Military Application:
Sometimes it just takes a long time to get to the heart of a problem. AHP-1200X “quick quote” for two thermoelectric air conditioners came into our sales team. It was responded to and followed up. The application was reviewed, a quote was made and an order placed.
Only after did we learn that the hard requirements they were looking for were:
- Dual adjustable temperature control (heat and cool)
- 28 VDC operation and
- Military environment.
Fortunately the selections within TECA’s enclosure air conditioner family are large. The military Contractor borrowed a unit from TECA’s loaner stock and based on that success, placed an order. It was then that we found a problem.
It seems that the application was to cool some sensitive electronics out on a 200 meter DC input which caused droop in the input which in turn caused a ringing in the circuits. The new digital monitors being used were susceptible while the older tube monitors had no issue.
Working with the customer it was determined that by changing the controller to a ruggedized PWM controller all problems were solved.
Video cameras needed to function in an environment beyond their rated temperature range.
One of our customers wanted to position cameras to observe a process from a location not safe for operators to go. The customer is a rubber manufacturer and the camera location was too hot for the cameras to work in. The customer had the cameras, but had no suitable enclosure, or cooling apparatus.
TECA adapted a tiny air conditioner based on Model AHP150XE to mount to a standard commercial enclosure. The package was completed by retrofitting the cameras with insulation and special cooling units. The design satisfied our customer’s needs to a “T”.
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.
Large Capacity Thermoelectric Air Conditioner
Large Capacity Thermoelectric Air Conditioner 1978 BTU/HR (580 watts) Enclosure Cooling, 48 VDC or 120 VAC Input with Power Save Mode:
Cool NEMA-12 enclosures, NEMA-4 enclosures and NEMA-4X enclosures with the thermoelectric FHP-3250-Series. This advanced Peltier-driven air conditioner will maintain both efficient cooling and the NEMA rating of your enclosure. The flush-mounted design of the FHP-3250 is ideal for control cabinets with little to no room for added equipment. The ECO-Mode temperature control feature helps save on power use. Designed to protect control cabinets, thermoelectric cooling technology (a.k.a. Peltier) is reliable and low-maintenance. Cool controls, electrical equipment, enclosures, and other heat sensitive equipment. Ideal for indoor or outdoor environments.
