  Thermal management of optomechanical devices, such as mirrors and monochromators, is one of the main bottlenecks in the overall performance of many X-Rays beamlines, particularly for Sirius: the new 4th generation Brazilian synchrotron light source. Due to high intensity photon beams some optical devices need to be cryogenically cooled and a closed-loop temperature control must be implemented to reduce mechanical distortions and instabilities. This work aims to describe the hardware design of a multi-channel driver for vacuum-ready ohmic heaters used in critical optical elements. The device receives PWM signals and can control up to 8 heaters individually. Interlocks and failure management can be implemented using digital signals input/outputs. The driver is equipped with a software programmable current limiter to prevent load overheating and it has voltage/current diagnostics monitored via EPICS or an embedded HTTP server. Enclosed in a 1U rack mount case, the driver can deliver up to 2A per channel in 12V and 24V output voltage versions. Performance measurements will be presented to evaluate functionalities, noise, linearity and bandwidth response.
