Machine Vision

Machine Vision Technology has become widely used in various applications to obtain and process data of a predetermined activity or process. Its use ranges from inspection system applications to collision avoidance and artificial intelligence systems. Since Machine Vision systems use sensitive cameras and imaging sensors to achieve the highest image quality, an active cooling solution is required to keep up performance. Thermoelectric modules rely on the Peltier effect to keep the sensors below its maximum temperature.

Industrial Laser Cooling

Requirements for any industrial laser system are accuracy and repeatability. Whether used for cutting, welding, micro-machining, additive manufacturing or drilling, industrial lasers generate a significant amount of heat that needs to be quickly and effectively dissipated. Laird Thermal Systems' thermoelectric solutions offers high heat pumping capabilities and precise temperature control to within ± 0.01°C under steady state condition. Providing reliable solid-state operation, thermoelectric cooling does not produce noise or vibration and is available in multiple configurations.

CMOS Sensors

Recently, CMOS Sensor technology has made advances in areas traditionally held by CCD sensors, such as digital imaging. They have also improved performance in emerging applications including imaging for autonomous systems, machine vision & learning as well as object detection & recognition. Enhanced CMOS technology proves that the sensors transmit data more rapidly, demands less power, are cheaper to manufacture and have an excellent battery life. However, thermal noise causes CMOS sensors to lose image resolution as temperature increases. Laird Thermal Systems' thermoelectric modules keep the CMOS sensors from approaching its maximum operating temperature limit resulting in higher resolution image quality.

Cooling for Outdoor Kiosks

Outdoor kiosks have gained popularity in a wide range of applications such as banking, entertainment retail, showrooms, industrial and education. Because of their location, outdoor kiosks must withstand different environmental conditions such as rain, heat as well as fluctuations in temperature. Demands for higher telecommunication speeds, real-time data and 24/7 access also increase heat load. Cooling and heating of these systems are critical in order to maintain long life operation with almost no maintenance. Laird Thermal Systems’ environmentally friendly Peltier thermoelectric assemblies deliver reliable high cooling performance in a compact footprint.
