K580 The HOTest Mini

Ricor's tiny new cooler is 35% smaller than our next smallest cooler. Specifically designed for the next generation H.O.T. detectors, the K580 combines the features of lowest input power,smallest size, highest performance, lightest weight and best value in the industry.

This mighty mini-cooler offers 500mW of cooing power with our highest reliability and lowest noise of any standard rotary cooler. It's ideal for applications requiring long battery life, with less than 2W of input power, making it ideal for miniature stand-alone imagers. The gap in performance between un-cooled and traditionally cooled imaging has been solved!

Model K580 is the newest member of Ricor's expanding family of highly reliable integral rotary micro-coolers.
