Product Announcement from TECA (ThermoElectric Cooling America) Corporation
TECA is offering an exciting new product for thermal preference (thermonociception ) researchers: the Dual Cold Plate! TECA model AHP-1200DCP Dual Cold Plate can also be used in such applications as pain research, cold/hot dry wells and sample cooling & heating.
The Dual Cold Plate houses two adjacent 13.0" X 6.37" plates. Each plate is independently programmable via the integral and tunable (within +/- 0.1ºC) TC-4300 temperature controllers. RS232 communications are standard. The user can readily employ custom programming through "EazyLog" Software (included) to run and chart multi-segment ramp/soak profiles, tuning, charting and data acquisition. Each plate can be controlled from -10 °C to 80 °C. Each plate has an integrated temperature sensor. However Remote Sensibility™ for location sensitive control is standard and remote sensors are available. Also available are standard and custom sized barriers for animal subjects.
The Dual Cold Plate is well suited for laboratory use. The work surfaces are flat, smooth and cleanable. A quiet fan design reduces noise.
TECA Corporation in Chicago manufactures a wide range of solid state thermoelectric cooling products, including air-conditioners, cold plates and liquid chillers. TECA was established in 1984 as a spin-off from Borg-Warner Corporation.
