Peltier cabinet cooler wins prize for innovationRittal's RTC 100 thermoelectric coolers employ the Peltier effect to provide 100W of cooling output without the need for refrigerants or gases, and with very few moving parts (fans to circulate the chilled air).

Small in size (400mm H x 125mm W x 155mm D), and claimed to be the lightest thermoelectric cooler on the market at 3kg, Rittal's versatile thermoelectric coolers can be mounted internally or externally, horizontally or vertically, and produce very little noise or vibration.

Energy efficiency and a long service life were both engineered into Rittal's thermoelectric coolers, with variable-speed, soft-starting fans that are claimed to deliver 60 per cent more efficient operation than competitor offerings, as well as an enhanced lifespan.

Rittal has now been awarded a prize for outstanding achievements in innovation in Germany. The thermoelectric cooler won the Industry category against tough competition from over 100 rival products. The judges were impressed by the cooling unit's green credentials and performance.
