About the TEC-8A-24V-PID-HC-RS232 Programmable Temperature Controller
The TEC-8A-24V-PID-HC-RS232 controller utilizes an RTD temperature sensor that makes it possible to control temperature in the range of -100 to 100 degrees Celsius. The controller provides convenient parameter adjustment and reading capabilities through the UART port.
With its versatile functionality, this controller offers both heating and cooling capabilities without the need for jumper configuration. Additionally, it includes an open collector output, allowing it to serve as a signal for other devices. Clear LED indicators provide visual feedback on the heating or cooling activity.
Designed with compact dimensions, user-friendly regulation, and versatility, this controller finds widespread application across various industries. It is specifically designed to work with 12 V Peltier modules, but is compatible with modules operating within the 5 to 24 V supply voltage range.
Operating in PWM mode (Pulse Width Modulation), the controller is capable of handling currents up to 8 A. It utilizes the P0K1.202.3FW.B.007 temperature sensor, and the default temperature setpoint is configured at 20 degrees Celsius.
Thanks to the adjustable PID controller parameters, this driver can be adapted to suit nearly any system. Depending on the system's inertia, a properly calibrated driver ensures precise temperature maintenance with an accuracy of up to ±1 degrees Celsius within the -50 to 50 degrees Celsius range, and ±2 degrees Celsius beyond this range.
Recommendations and requirements
- TEC-8A-24V-PID-HC uses serial port (COM) for PC communication. Various desktop applications such as RealTerm (Win), Minicom (Linux) or PuTTy can be utilized for data reading, writing and parameter configuration.
- We recommend the use of power cables with a minimum cross-section of 0.5 mm2
- The Peltier module's current depends on the supply voltage used. Common modules typically operate at 12-15 V, with the maximum current specified by the module symbol. For example, "12708" indicates a voltage range of 0-12 V and a maximum current of 8 A.
This temperature controller has no reverse polarity protection. Reverse polarity at the power supply will permanently damage the temperature controller.
If the temperature is higher than 120 degrees Celsius or lower than -120 degrees Celsius, the driver will not power the Peltier module. Additionally, the open collector output is grounded.
