 St. Louis, Missouri, USA – November 20, 2012 – Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced the release of a software graphical user interface update for the PR-59 Temperature Controller. The software is now available for download from Laird’s website.  

The PR-59 is a closed loop temperature controller specifically designed to drive Thermoelectric Assemblies (TEAs).  It features a regulation mode option that the user can select and configure for direct power, thermostatic or PID control and a Graphical User Interface (GUI) that runs on Windows. With temperature control stability to within ±0.05°C, the PR-59 has high accuracy and offers scalable output functionality for typical TEA applications, including monitoring of fans, thermoelectric modules (TEMs), thermistors, alarms and LEDs in real time.  

“Standard off-the-shelf controllers are complex to operate because they are designed to handle a very broad application spectrum.” said Laird Technologies Product Manager, Andrew Dereka. “The PR-59 controller has been specifically designed for closed loop feedback control of thermoelectric assemblies and its ease of use allows design engineers to shorten product development and move products to market faster.”  

Electrical engineers designing thermal control drive circuits for medical, telecommunications and industrial markets will benefit the most from the PR-59 and its GUI, as it is frequently used in medical imaging, analytical instrumentation, telecom enclosures, photonics lasers and medical diagnostics. The software can be downloaded from Laird Technologies’ website and is backwards compatible with previous versions. 

As an industry leader in high-performance and cost-effective Thermal Management Solutions, Laird Technologies provides the knowledge, innovation, and resources to ensure exceptional thermal performance and customer satisfaction for applications in the medical, analytical, telecom, industrial, and consumer markets.
