Thermoelectric Cooler – Peltier Plate Module


SKU: SB-093 Category:


The Thermoelectric Peltier cooler TEC-12706 (TEC or Peltier) are used for heating or cooling applications. It is important to note that you will need a heatsink in the hot side in order to catch the hot output or else the module won’t work. Using an old computer CPU heat sink or other big heat sink works perfectly. You can use this for refrigeration projects or heating experiments.

One side gets hot and the other side gets cold. Therefore, they can be used to either warm something up or cool something down, depending on which side you use. TEC1 Peltier Modules are high-grade materials that are used to provide cooling and heating applications.

When coupled with an appropriate heat sink and power source, TEC1 Peltier Modules are suitable for the following applications…

  • Liquid Component Cooling 
  • Food and Beverage Refrigeration
  • Commercial Portable Cooling 
  • Temperature Stabilization
  • Precision Temperature Control 
  • Medical and Photonic Systems

Important Safety Notice

Please refer to this safety notice before using TEC1 Modules.

  • Do not attempt to use TEC1 Peltier Modules without a fan or heat sink.
  • Due to extreme DTmax temperature differentials, module damage, fire, or operator injury can occur when sufficient thermal resistance is not present.
  • For your safety, use TEC1 Peltier Modules with caution and care.
