high power thermoelectric cooling module peltier module TEC 12712 40mm
The structure of thermoelectric modules is generally described as elements of n and p type thermoelectric material sandwiched between two ceramic plates and connected in series. The elements are solid-state, vibration-free, noise-free heat pumps, which move heat from one surface to another when a direct current electricity is applied on it. If the heat at the hot side is dissipated to the ambient environment by a heat sink, this assembly becomes a cooling unit.
Not only used for heat transfer, thermoelectric modules are widely used to generate electrical power by converting heat energy to electrical current which allows for waste heat recovery. The thermoelectric module is widely used in military, medical, industrial, consumer, scientific/laboratory, electro-optic and telecommunications areas for cooling, heating, and power generation.
