A thermoelectric module, also known as a Peltier effect heat pump, is a thermal device that can pump heat from one side to the other and create a cold side and a hot side. Because the temperature of the cold side is lower than the ambient temperature, it is particularly useful in electronics when a semiconductor device needs to work in a temperature lower than the ambient.
We currently offer high performance thermoelectric modules that can produce a maximum of 75°C temperature differences between the hot and cold sides. For a specific size, such as 40×40mm, the modules can be chosen for different current level (Imax
). Higher current ones can pump more heat but require larger heat sinks and fan powers. Lower current ones remove less heat but the heat sinks will be more compact.
