DIY Cold Plate :
DIY family of high-performance cold plates provides engineers with the freedom to drill holes to match the specific connection points of the devices being cooled, such as IGBT, MOSFET, or other power electronics. Each cold plate has an etched no-drill zone to provide a visual guide.
iFLOW 200™ :
The iFLOW-200™ system measures the thermal and hydraulic characteristics of a cold plate.
When cooling IGBT modules and high-powered semiconductors, air cooling is often inadequate and liquid cooling is required. Cold plates are a way to implement localized cooling of power electronics by transferring heat from the device to a liquid that flows to a remote heat exchanger and dissipates into either the ambient or to another liquid in a secondary cooling system.
ATS liquid cold plates are the right choice for cooling high-powered electronics, IGBT modules, lasers, wind turbines, motor devices, automotive components, medical equipment, and any application where liquid cooling is needed.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- More than 30% improvement in thermal performance compared to commercially-available cold plates
- Compatible with industry accepted coolants
- 1/4 (pipe size) – 18 (thread density) NPT threaded input and output
- Low pressure drop
- Lightweight for ease of use
- Provides uniform cold plate surface temperature when IGBTs are installed
- Leak tested at 100 psi
- Customizable to fit different devices
The internal, mini-channel fin structure enhances the surface area to maximize heat transfer with low pressure drop characteristics and provides uniform cold plate surface temperature.
To give engineers more freedom to apply Cold Plates to specific applications, ATS has taken the Standard Cold Plate family and created a DIY (“Do It Yourself”) family. The DIY Cold Plate family has the same thermal performance as the Standard Cold Plate family except that holes may be drilled in them to create a mounting pattern to match the specific connection points of the device being cooled. Each cold plate includes an etched “no drill zone” to provide a visual guide. After an engineer is satisfied with the mounting, ATS can manufacture their custom cold plates for prototypes or production.
Customization is available. ATS can design cold plates to meet size restrictions and manufacture cold plates to connect with a variety of components include
Complete Your Liquid Loop with ATS
ATS has the products needed to design a complete liquid cooling loop : Cold Plates to transfer and remove the heat from the source; Heat Exchanger to tranfer heat from the liquid to the air with or without a fan; and Chillers to circulate and condition the fluid in the system. In Addition , ATS offer Flow Meter to instanteaously measure the volumetric flow rate of the fluid in the system and Leak Detector to notify users of any leaks in the system.
