Thermoelectric Cooling for Security Cameras
Application Note Overview
The use of outdoor cameras have seen a massive influx with the rise in security monitoring by government and private security agencies.
No matter the camera technology implemented, it is critical that the optimum operating temperature of sensitive imaging components is maintained during use to ensure high quality images. Active thermoelectric coolers utilizing the Peltier effect offer advanced thermal management solutions. These thermoelectric devices meet the size constraints and high temperature rating required for optoelectronics implemented in outdoor security cameras.
This app note from Laird Thermal Systems provides an overview of the HiTemp ETX Series high-performance thermoelectric cooler, which is said to be capable of surviving temperatures of up to 302°F, making it well-suited for spot cooling in outdoor security camera applications.
