TEC1-12710 Thermoelectric Cooler Peltier Module 


The TEC1-12710 40x40mm Thermoelectric Cooler 10A Peltier Module is the simple application of the Peltier Thermoelectric Effect. The Thermoelectric cooling module features 127 semiconductor couples in an area of 40mmx40mmThermoelectric coolers also known as TEC or Peltier Module 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 12V Peltier Module 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 water 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.
