WARMINSTER, Pa., 4 April 2013. EIC Solutions Inc. in Warminster, Pa., is introducing the ThermoTEC 145 series 1500 BTU military-grade air conditioner to cool electronics operating in harsh aerospace and defense environments.
The lightweight thermoelectric cooling unit features auto ranging chip circuitry that enables the units to run on 24/28-volt DC or 120/240 AC power.
The auto ranging feature automatically tracks and optimizes available voltage to provide unimpeded cooling at the rated 1500 BTUs even when the units are installed in areas where voltage flow may vary such as remote military installations.
ThermoTEC units are built for 19-inch rack mount installation in transit cases. The rugged air conditions have mil-spec fans, and "run at peak efficiency on AC or DC," says Jamie Alletag, EIC sales engineer."

-- Design trends in backplane enclosures revolve around high performance, small size, and thermal management.
Operating at temperatures to 160 degrees Fahrenheit, the 145 series military grade model also is available with higher ambient temperature tolerances. ThermoTEC units are manufactured to NEMA 4X standards, have solid-state construction, and use corrosion-resistant-powder-coated aluminum.
ThermoTEC 145 series may be integrated into existing transit cases or included as part of a custom pre-packaged solution in a new EIC Defender series transit case.
While the transit case protects electronic gear from dust, water, oil and most other environmental hazards, the ThermoTEC cooling unit keeps the temperature inside the case at safe operating levels for sensors, computers, telecommunication systems, surveillance devices, and other gear inside.
Options including RF/EMI shielding, custom designed condensate drip pans, heaters, digital temperature controllers, and rain shrouds. Hazardous-location models are available.
