Abstract

Memory arrays 13 are mounted vertically in support wall 15 which is part of insulated cabinet 17. The latter has a hinged, upwardly swinging door 19. Thermoelectric units 21 are provided on door 19 and arranged to cool fins 23 inside of cabinet 17 and a dissipate heat to exterior fins 25. Removable, air-circulating duct 27 having fan 29 blows air over fins 23. For servicing, duct 27 is removed and door 19 carrying units 21 is swung upwardly. With door 19 closed, cabinet fan 31 circulates air up through arrays 13 and over fins 23 so that arrays 13 are maintained at a proper temperature.
