AMS: development kit for adjustable liquid cooling up to 1.6 kW

AMS Technologies is introducing a very compact and low-vibration solution for liquid cooling that can be modulated within a wide range. The mLC-KIT 1600 with dimensions of a typical 19-inch rackmount case is the latest addition to the Mini Liquid Cooling Kit series with a model that provides up to 1.6 kW cooling capacity.

The mLC-KIT 1600 development kit is based on two linear compressors featuring high efficiency, continuous, oil-free operation with very low-vibration, quiet operation and the possibility to modulate the cooling power from almost zero up to the maximum value of about 1.6 kW1. This modulation is realized by varying the linear motor’s stroke at a fixed frequency, which avoids vibration and noise issues due to resonant oscillations often associated with rotary speed controlled compressors.

With its compact setup (440 x 184 x 365 mm), the development kit is ideally suited as a cooling device for custom-specific liquid coolant circuits and can be easily integrated into 19-inch racks.  The interface to the customer’s application comprises two R 3/8” connectors at the brazed plate heat exchanger and a digital frequency signal (5 V square wave signal with 20 Hz to 200 Hz) for cooling capacity control. Operating from a 230 V AC supply, the power consumption of the mLC-KIT 1600 ranges between 20 W and 440 W – depending on the cooling power – with an operating noise of 38 dBA (without fans). Recommended flow rate on the liquid coolant side is 2 l to 8 l per minute.

If a customer’s requirements should not be covered by the “Mini Liquid Cooling Kit mLC-KIT 1600”, AMS Technologies’ thermal management experts are happy to come up with a fully customized solution offering full service from design all the way to serial production.
