    Default Does anyone know a good TEC controller ?

    Hi Guys

    I am on the look for a good full bridge PWM TEC controller, capable of at least 10A current.. (with adjustable setpoint, current, etc.)

    I have been looking at one from supercool which has both rs232 port and a lot of stuff that i dont need, but is that really the only one out there.. It seems to me that this is not rocket science, so i dont understand why i cant find a relatively low priced simple product...

    Does anyone know where to find something usefull, or do i really have to design it myself ?


    Thanks !

    Regards, Simon

    I'm afraid the die4chill is not full bridge!

    you can find some here : http://www.teamwavelength.com/produc...urecontrollers

    Hello
    Yes, i know the wavelength controllers and have used them a lot.. however for this application i need a lot of current for the tecs, so these controllers being linear, will dissapate a lot of heat, so i would prefer if i could find something pwm..

    At this moment a device from oven industries (www.ovenind.com) seems to be the best solution, allthough it is just as expensive as the one from supercool..

    Thanks !

    If you can lay out a circuit pcb, check out the PIDC120 controller IC.
