Korean thermal solutions manufacturer Thermolab Co. Ltd. have introduced a heatsink test platform for OEM and industry
use. The TLS-M thermal test equipment is capable of testing Intel socket
775 and AMD socket 939/940/AM2 heatsinks in any orientation from 0, 90,
180, to 270 degrees from horizontal, with up to 300 Watts of heat.
The Thermolab TLS-M platform
uses a standard 6-channel industrial LCD panel control to drive a resistive heater mounted on the 1.6mm thick PCB base. This approach replicates the standard motherboard mounting environment that heatsinks encounter in the real world. Measurements are derived from Platinum thermocouples, and the system appears to be geared towards generating thermal resistance figures as compared against a "master sample." The TLS-M is capable of applying a maximum 300W heat load.
According to babelfish, the specs are as follows:
- Dimension (m/m): 400 (L) * 315 (W) * 250 (H)
- Wool heat generation body: Hundred confinement metal plate elder brother heat generation bodies
- Guard Heater: Carbon system face heat generation body
- Temperature determination: maximum 6Channel measurement possibility
- Temperature precision: 0.1°C
- Control: 2 loop (separate way maximum 4 Channel temperature determination possibility)
- Power Supply Unit
- 1. Heat generation body: DC 50V, 8A
- 2. Pan : DC 15V, 10A
The price for Thermolab's TLS-M thermal test equipment is $25M KRW, or about
$25,140USD at today's exchange rate. The unit can be purchased from Thermolab right here.
