Revolutionizing Energy Storage Research: RIGID’s Stirling Cryocoolers and Real-World Feedback



The American customer is a leading player in energy storage system research and development, offering specialized empirical test lab services and customized solutions to a diverse clientele, including investors, startups, and established corporations. They have purchased Stirling Cryocoolers RS40 and RS100 from RIGID company.

The customer initially faced a challenge when the RS40 control board malfunctioned due to improper operation but successfully adapted the RS100 control board to operate the RS40 with slight modifications. Despite budget constraints, the RS40 meets their low-temperature needs, achieving a minimum temperature of -99℃. While acknowledging the superior performance of the RS100, cost limitations led them to make the most of the RS40, demonstrating resourcefulness and adaptability as a small business.



In the ever-evolving landscape of energy storage systems, research and development serve as the engines of progress. Our boutique empirical test lab proudly leads the way, offering tailor-made solutions to investors, startups, and established corporations. Our mission is to provide state-of-the-art technology and solutions for your energy storage endeavors. In this blog, we’ll delve into how RIGID’s Stirling Cryocoolers, specifically the RS40 and RS100 models, have left an indelible mark on our work, along with invaluable feedback from one of our satisfied customers.

Customer Feedback: Real-World Insights


Before we delve into our experience, let’s hear from one of our customers, a true innovator in energy storage research:

“The cooling effect of Stirling refrigerator RS40 can meet our experimental needs. During the simulation experiment, the RS40 control board burned up due to my improper operation. I use the control board of the RS100 Stirling machine to control the RS40 Stirling. By reducing the operating voltage from 24v to 19v and adding a series inductor, the RS100 controller works perfectly for my needs on the RS40 cooler.”

In this candid feedback, our customer highlights the adaptability of RIGID’s Stirling Cryocoolers to real-world challenges, showcasing the RS100’s ability to seamlessly control the RS40.
