Yamaha offers a wide range of high performance thermoelectric coolers from 1mm×1mm micro-coolers to large scale 20mm×20mm coolers, all tailored to fit the wide variety of customer requirements. Our thermoelectric coolers are ideal for precision temperature control applications, such as the examples given below.
Solutions for High-Precision Temperature Control
Examples of Practical Applications for Yamaha Thermoelectric Coolers
- Temperature control of optical crystals,lasers for optical communications , and high-power industrial lasers
- Temperature controls for sensors in CCD and light receiving elements
- Temperature control of biochips, hybridization equipment, and PCR equipment in the biological industry
- Temperature control of silicon wafers and chemicals in the semi-conductor industry
Features of Yamaha Thermoelectric Coolers
Low Power Consumption
Yamaha has successfully improved the microstructure of its thermoelectric material to provide both lower electrical resistance and thermal conductivity. This has resulted in a further reduction in power consumption.
Large Heat Absorption
Yamaha’s high-precision assembly technology enables high-density element packaging. This has allowed us to use a larger volume of heat absorbing material (a 20% increase on our previous products) on thermoelectric coolers of the same size.
High strength thermoelectric material and high-density mounting afford higher strength characteristics than were previously possible (a 20% improvement over our previous products). In addition to resistance to thermal stress, our products are also extremely shock-resistant.
Yamaha’s thermoelectric coolers for optical communications are subjected to reliability testing based on the Telcordia Standard. Moreover, we conduct a range of reliability tests where requested by customers.
Temperature Control of Microscopic Areas
Yamaha’s realization of 1mm X 1mm ultra-small thermoelectric modules has allowed us to place thermoelectric coolers inside TO-CANs, making direct cooling and temperature control of lasers and sensors possible.
These devices comply with the RoHS directives. Yamaha uses lead-free solder in the assembly of thermoelectric coolers
