Sustainability and good value were prime con-
in o
siderations. The peltier elements were tested to
600,000 cycles without any failures, giving at
least 20 years of lifetime even under the harshest
conditions. The silver blocks are electroformed for
lowest heat capacity and best heat conductance.
This allows high speed with a maximum power of
only 350 Watts. The average during a typical run
is less than 150 Watts. The result is good performance with low energy consumption, low carbon dioxide footprint, less heat in the lab and, last
but not least, less noise from the cooling fans.

Precision is further enhanced by a 6-zone tem-

perature regulation that corrects for any differences between the 6 peltier elements. Each
block has its own processor with a continuously
self-calibrating temperature measuring circuitry.
Indefinite cooling at 4 °C is of course possible, the
blocks even go down to -5 °C.

With the unique quick block changing
system, a block change takes one hand

The temperature measuring system is entirely in the block and continuously selfcalibrating, ensuring precise and identical operation of a block in any machine.
