TEC1-12715 Peltier Module

The TEC1-12715 40x40mm Thermoelectric Cooler 15A Peltier Module is the simple application of the Peltier Thermoelectric Effect. The module features 127 semiconductor couples in the area of 40mmx40mm.

Thermoelectric coolers are also known as TEC or Peltier modules create a temperature differential on each side. One side gets hot and the other side gets cool. Therefore, they can be used to either warm something up or cool something down, depending on which side you use. You can also take advantage of a temperature differential to generate electricity.

This Peltier works very well as long as you remove the heat from the hot side. After turning on the device, the hot side will heat quickly, the cold side will cool quickly. If you do not remove the heat from the hot side (with a heat sink or other device), the Peltier will quickly reach stasis and do nothing. We recommend using an old computer CPU heatsink or another block of metal to pull heat from the hot side. We were able to use a computer power supply and CPU heatsink to make the cold side so uncomfortable we could not hold our finger to it.

A thermoelectric cooling (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 used in industrial areas, for example, computer CPUs, CCDs, portable refrigerators, medical instruments, and so on.

Applications:

  • Industrial areas
  • Computer CPU
  • CCDs
  • Portable refrigerators
  • Medical instruments

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is TEC1 -2715? What does TEC mean?

  • Peltier Element TEC1-12715 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
