Description of the Solution

Task

The laboratory analyzer of our customer requires to temperature control of the sample chamber by circulating air. Additionally, there should be the possibility of cooling below the ambient temperature. Additional comfort and safety functions are added to the sample chamber such as lighting and a door-open response. Furthermore the device has a front-panel operation with a display and should output certain operating conditions (e.g. temperature reached).


Approach

The requirements are fulfilled by using the built-in temperature controller with an application-specific extended firmware and the BELEKTRONIG output filter. The actual sample chamber is tempered with our Peltier module BPM A140. The Controller peripherals also covers all measuring and control functions. Our built-in temperature regulators have been specially designed for sophisticated scientific and medical measuring devices such as the one shown here - for devices where, in addition to controlling the temperature, other parameters such as safety features, lED or valve control as well as the detection and evaluation of operating conditions are required.


Key Features

  • Temperature control of the sample chamber of a laboratory instrument by circulating air
  • Cooling (Peltier cooling)
  • Implementation of various comfort and safety functions such as door-open-reaction, shutdown in case of faults such as leakage
  • Output of operating conditions on display and by LED
  • Operation via buttons
  • Control and monitoring via PC

Details of the Solution

  • sample_image

    The BELEKTRONIG output filter converts the PWM output voltage of the built-in temperature controller into a DC voltage. This reduces possible EMC influences on the sample.

    The additional integrated functions include a door-open response (lighting, Control shutdown), leak detection, status output on LED and display (Error, temperature stable) as well as the device operation via buttons.
