All PHOTOCOOL systems are rated for operation over the line voltage range 100V-120V/220V-240V, 50/60 Hz.

The PHOTOCOOL series is composed of discrete components which are interchangeable.

Different PHOTOCOOL combinations yield different PHOTOCOOL systems.

The components are:
Power Supply - 4 PHOTOCOOL versions
Housing - all PHOTOCOOL compatible thermoelectric and LN2 varieties

Interconnect Cable - 4 versions for PHOTOCOOL compatibility

Socket Assembly - all socket assemblies previously available are PHOTOCOOL compatible

Evacuated Windows - all window designs previously available are PHOTOCOOL compatible

All PHOTOCOOL types will use the prefix PC before the type number.
The numerical values of the type numbers will remain the same as before.
