TECA's enclosure cooling solutions protect rail switch equipment, signage and RF electronics, intermodal automation controls, and other heat-sensitive equipment.
ThermoElectric Cooling America (TECA) manufactures solid-state thermoelectric cooling products, including cabinet cooling air-conditioners, Peltier cold plates, thermoelectric closed-loop liquid chillers, and custom assemblies.
We design solutions for cooling heat-sensitive control panels and protecting electronics from overheating. Our experienced engineering and sales team can help create innovative cooling solutions based on customer requirements.
Cooling enclosures for electrical railway equipment
TECA products aim to keep electronics enclosures cool and protect equipment, whether it is located indoors, outdoors or in adverse conditions.
We offer a broad range of thermoelectric products. Our air conditioners can be designed to meet requirements for special input voltages, mounting styles, performance and efficiency ratings, as well as temperature control.

Rugged thermoelectric cooling systems for railway electrical systems
Our cabinet coolers are ideal for railyards, intermodal terminals and transportation kiosks. Thermoelectric cooling is a reliable technology for electrical panels due to its solid-state nature. TECA cooling systems make use of this by carefully sourcing high-quality and robust components with unique features to optimise performance and efficiency.
Constructed with rugged components, the coolers protect important communications and electronic systems in any environment. We match the requirements of the surrounding area with industrial-grade and military-grade fans and components.
TECA solutions offer closed-loop cooling, with no exchange between the surrounding environment and the enclosure.
Active air conditioners for railway electronics
TECA active cooling systems provide a cost-effective investment that optimises power efficiency of thermoelectric cooling, which is one of the company’s early innovations.
Most control cabinet cooling systems include an energy-saving ECO-Mode temperature control feature, which draws less power and can reduce costs.
Enclosure cooling is normally needed in rail, intermodal and automated systems to protect components such as signalling equipment and radio frequency, in addition to other electronics.
TECA’s air conditioners can improve the performance of control panels, and heat-sensitive electronics can be enhanced by avoiding over-heating and stopping dust and dirt from entering. We offer closed-loop cooling solutions with performance ratings from 200 British thermal units per hour (BTU/h) to 6,000BTU/h.
About ThermoElectric Cooling America
Established in 1984, TECA is a spin-off of Borg-Warner. We were one of the first companies to market a thermoelectric enclosure cooler, having continually improved our products since then using high-quality components.
We sell directly from our factory in Chicago, US, where our products are manufactured at a low turnover with consistency, attention to detail and a comprehensive understanding of the technology.

Thermoelectric technology is used due to its reliability, low maintenance costs and performance in high ambient temperatures and tough environments, including NEMA-4X.
Replacing traditional vapour-compression refrigerators, a thermoelectric refrigerator offers consistent performance in rugged environments without added effects on the environment.
For indoor or outdoor enclosure cooling, TECA Model AHP-690 is a powerful thermoelectric air conditioner.
