thermoelectric cooling device
A Thermoelectric cooling system uses the Peltier effect and uses a Thermoelectric cooler (TEC) that is semiconductor device that functions as a small heat pump. In the 1800’s Thomas Seebeck discovered that an electric current would flow continuously in a device made up of two dissimilar metals provided that the junctions of the metals were
Upon application of a direct current (DC) power source, these devices generate a cooling action, countered by a generation of heat on the opposite side of the device. EIC’s Thermoelectric Air Conditioners operate on this principle so there is no compressor and …
Thermoelectric coolers offer a myriad of benefits when traditional cooling methods are unsuited. Additionally, thermoelectric coolers are environmentally safer than other cooling units in the market. Some benefits of using thermoelectric cooling in electronic devices include:
TE Technology’s Thermoelectric, or Peltier Cooling Modules (also known as a TEC or a TEM) come in a wide variety of types and sizes. While typically used for cooling, they can also be used for heating (by reversing the electric current flow) and even power generation.
Thermoelectric cooling has quickly become a practical proposition for many types of electronic equipment. Devices on the market today are compact, efficient and – with the benefit of advanced internal construction – overcome the traditional reliability challenges that have restricted opportunities for this type of device in the past.
