MPO: Closed Loop Thermal Control in Medical Devices

August 30, 2021

Closed Loop Thermal Control

Medical Product Outsourcing features Closed Loop Thermal Control in Medical Devices written by Kenneth MacCallum, P.Eng., Principal Engineering Physicist, StarFish Medical, as an Online Exclusive in their August 30, 2021 online edition.

A closed-loop feedback approach is an effective mechanism to address thermal control challenges: MacCallum summarizes the article succinctly, “Maybe an assay needs to be temperature regulated. Or the spectral output of an LED or laser has a large tempco. Or it’s to push down the noise floor of a sensor. Sometimes closed-loop temperature control is just a nice way to keep a heatsink cool without having fans blasting continuously. In all these cases, a closed-loop feedback approach is an effective mechanism to address the thermal control challenges.”.
