Description: Thermoelectric Cooler Peltier TEC1-12706
Thermoelectric coolers (TEC or Peltier) 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. The thermal tape listed below works very well to attach heat sinks to the hot side.
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 other 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.
It is imperative that a heat sink is used on the hot side of the module. Running the module without one can cause damage to this part. If it’s too hot to comfortably touch, you’re in the danger zone!
- Its work is characterized by side refrigeration and side fever.
- Hot and cold on both sides of the temperature difference of 68 degrees
- Connected to the 12-volt power supply cooling piece on both sides there will be difference in temperature, side cold side of
- the heat, do not long power cooler radiator, otherwise it will cause cooler internal overheating and burning.
- Model: TEC1-12706
- Size: 40mm x 40mm
- Operates from 0~15.2V and 0~6A
- Operates Temperature: -30C to 70C
- Max power consumption: 60W
- These devices must be used in conjunction with a heat sink to avoid burned
- Each device is full inspected and tested
- Fitted with 6-inch insulated leads
Cooling piece is very simple to install and use. Before installation, to find a dry cell, connected to the two leads of the cooler, obviously cold you can feel at one end and the other end of fever, remember that the polarity of the lead and determine a good cooler cold and hot end. If you want to get a bigger system Ling, it is recommended that two cooling mode, with two stack up with the above, a grim absorption following a fever, the experiments prove two refrigeration effect is much better than the single-stage, the condition can choose three, of course, have a large power supply support.
