  • Thermoelectric Peltier cooler or generator TEC1-12706 has an operating voltage of 12VDC.
  • The Peltier creates a temperature differential on each side, one side gets hot, and the other side gets cool.
  • A thermoelectric cooler (TEC) module is a semiconductor-based electronic component that functions as a small heat pump.
  • Designed for cooling and heating up to 90°Celsius applications.

TEC1 12706 Peltier Module

The TEC1-12706 6A Thermoelectric Cooler Peltier Module is the simple application of the Peltier Thermoelectric Effect. The Peltier module features 127 semiconductor couples in the area of 40 x 40mm which very effectively cools and heats up to 90°C.

The thermoelectric cooler also known as TEC or Peltier module creates a temperature differential on each side. One side gets hot and the other side gets cool. They use to either warm something up or cool something down; above all, you can use either side. You can also take advantage of a temperature differential to generate electricity.

A thermoelectric cooler (TEC) module is a semiconductor-based electronic component that functions as a small heat pump. By applying the DC power source to a TEC, heat will be transferred from one side of the module to the other. It creates a cold and hot side. They are widely useful in industrial areas, for example, computer CPUs, CCDs, portable refrigerators, medical instruments, and so on.


  • Operating Temperature: 138 Degree C.
  • Do not exceed Imax or Vmax when operating a module.
  • Please carry out moisture protection options (sealing) in final application use.
  • Life expectancy: 200,000 hours.
  • Failure rate based on long-time testing: 0.2%.

1. What is TEC1 12706? What does TEC mean?

  • Peltier Element TEC1-12706 is thermoelectric cooling element that uses the Peltier effect to create a heat flux at the junction of two different types of materials.
    TEC stands for Thermoelectric coolers

2. How does a Peltier module work?

  • Thermoelectric coolers operate according to the Peltier effect. The effect creates a temperature difference by transferring heat between two electrical junctions. A voltage is applied across joined conductors to create an electric current. When the current flows through the junctions of the two conductors, heat is removed at one junction and cooling occurs. Heat is deposited at the other junction.

3. How do I choose the correct peltier for my application?

  • Estimate heat load of the object to be cooled
  • Define temperature working range of object and heat sink
  • Choose a Peltier element that satisfies the requirements
  • Choose a TEC controller with suitable power range
  • Choose a heat sink for the Peltier element
  • Choose a fan to air the heat sink (optional)
  • Choose the object temperature sensor and the optional sink sensor
  • Choose a power supply for the TEC controller
