Thermoelectric Cooler Peltier TEC1-12706
TEC or Peltier thermoelectric cooler is a semiconductor based electronic device which functions as a heat pump. When power is applied to this module, heat is transferred from one side to other. This will make a cold and hot side. Therefore this module can be used to warm up or cool down something depending upon your needs. It can also generate electricity depending up on the temperature difference but it can’t generate any significant amount of power. This module is widely used in industrial applications including CCDs, medical instruments, portable refrigerators, computer CPUs etc.
