3rd gen coolers

The SX cryocooler-series is our latest product family targeting HOT, 3rd Gen IR and industrial applications:

The SX020 combines smallest outline dimensions with outstanding specific performance and provides high reliability exceeding lifetimes of 30,000h being ideal for 24/7 operation. The compactness and cooling power meets the demand for lightweight high performance IR-technology. The SX020 provides a cooling capacity of more than 0.5W @ 160K. Typical power consumption for HOT IDCAs is less than 2W@180K.

The SX020 can be used with AIM‘s digital low power electronics (μDCE050, μDCE025) or alternatively with customers‘ electronics. This cooler can be used with different regenerator diameters allowing integration into standard rotary dewar bores.
HOT IDCAs with SX020 cooler can nearly compete on system level with uncooled technology in power consumption and total weight, but have the advantages in performance for cooled devices.
