The 7154-05-12 MultiSource is a compact, four-channel temperature controller for lower power applications. With 60W of TEC control and support for thermistor sensors, it is the ideal choice for high-density, multi-channel TEC applications requiring more power than the 7154-04-08 can provide. Each of the four channels includes an auxiliary DC fan power supply for controlling external fans, such as those in our 207 LaserMounts.
AutoTune Automatic PID Calculation
All Arroyo Instruments temperature controllers feature AutoTune for automatic PID calculation. With AutoTune, you no longer need to fiddle with PID parameters to find values that work with your application. Simply hook up your mount, set the appropriate limits, and start the AutoTune process. The instrument will automatically calculate PID parameters that will work with your mount.
The MultiSource offers excellent short-term and long-term stability. At less than 0.004°C stability over one hour, and 0.01°C over 24 hours, it provides an excellent solution for precision temperature control.
Standard Computer Interfaces
The MultiSource includes both Ethernet and USB computer interfaces, allowing for quick and easy connection to a PC for remote operation. In addition, the TECSource’s command set is compatible with ILX and Newport controllers, allowing you to leverage any existing software you may have already developed.
Simple Local Control
While intended to be primarily operated from a PC, the display on the MultiSource allows you to locally monitor status and turn channels on and off.
