Air Cooled Heatsink With TEC

Item Code:
Product status:
Full production Product specifications are stable. Delivery time is predictable.


This heatsink is a high-end TEC and fan-based cooler. In combination with this TEC cooler, Matchbox® lasers will gain numerous stability and operational temperature range enhancements for demanding scientific and industrial setups. With this heatsink, a laser has a better center of wavelength, coherence length, and power stability. The programmable pin of a laser sends a signal to the TEC cooler, controlling and keeping stable laser body temperature.

This cooler is an essential accessory for all SLM and DPSS lasers!

  • Integrated UART contact head to easily attach to laser pins
  • Built-in power supply for a Matchbox® laser
  • Peltier element and fan ensure constant and stable laser body temperature
  • Elevates the laser output by 61.7 mm
  • Adapted to attach Integrated Optics® beam shutters
  • Integrated interlock pins
  • Variable speed 60 mm fan

TTL modulation is not available with this accessory because the programmable pin is already used to control the heatsink.

Due to some power supplies being discontinued by our suppliers, we are forced to change power supply manufacturers from time to time. This may lead to some power supplies not being suitable to earlier ordered heatsinks. Please, contact our technical support to find out whether current power supplies are compatible with your accessories.

A sufficient amount of thermal grease should be used by applying it in a shallow and continuous layer to the bottom part of our lasers! We recommend mounting an adapter to an aluminium breadboard. Steel breadboards have poor heat conductivity.

Note: This accessory only includes a TEC cooler, a contact head for communication, and a data cable (USB-micro).
