Laboratory TEC TCP-2

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Has anyone ever used a laboratory TEC or seen one of these? A quick google didn't provide me any specs, and there's nothing on the case except whats shown here on the front. Obviously it's somewhat old. I just got it from a college surplus sale, no idea if it works, but as soon as I can get a pump I'll hook it up to test. (although, I could probably plug it in for a moment to see if the temp changes at first, yes?)

The fuse is only a 1A I think, so it's probably less than 115W or so, maybe not enough to cool a CPU eh? If I went that route I'd probably remove the peltier from the case.

Unfortunately I can't play with it after today since I'm going to a different state for a month, but maybe I'll have a TEC cooled video card soon afterwards

I wouldn't do that, if its a water cooled hot side on it you'll burn it up really quick.

If its some kind of little HSF cooled TEC you might be able to. But the water lines are probably there to cool it since its a cold-plate.

I've never seen one like it that I can remember.

It is just reverse hotplate?

Yeah I guess that's not shown in the pic, there's an inlet and outlet on the back, but looking inside there's also copper fins. So it's water cooled but a quick on/off might not hurt it I think.

Except I'd hafta open it up since the fuse won't stay in place now.

Reverse hotplate? I guess so.. still requires a pump and coolant as far as I can tell, but it looks like a hotplate besides that.

If you give them a call, they might be able to help you out with specs and other info.
