ElectraCOOL™ Thermoelectric Module
Specifications with Thot = 27°С
40 x 40 x 3.45
TM-127-1.4-8.5 is a general purpose workhorse. With 78 watts of cooling capacity, it’s our most powerful 40 x 40 mm single-stage thermoelectric module. Typically this module is powered by a 12V DC power source but can accommodate a 15V supply.
Known by our techs as “The Beast,” TM-127-1.4-8.5 can move a lot of heat but also may send a lot of heat to the “hot-side.” A great choice for applications with a (cooled) liquid heat-sink or a capable forced convection heat-sink. Frequently selected by semiconductor fabs for use in liquid-to-liquid applications.
May be used for cooling, heating and temperature stabilization in a wide range of applications including refrigeration, consumer goods, medical, analytical, laboratory & scientific instruments, chillers, telecommunications, electro-optics, industrial and military. A version for thermal cycling is available.
Operating temperature range: -50 °C ~ +200 °C
Available in strings from 2-12 modules long and with metalized (and tinned) surfaces.
* This module is typically selected for thermoelectric power generation applications, with temperatures up to 200 °C.

Performance Curves (click image for enlargement)
Thermoelectric module performance curves are graphical representations showing the relationships between power applied and net cooling for a specific TE module.
Performance curves are valuable tools for quickly determining if a TE module is a suitable COOLER for an application; learning what power is required for an appropriate module to reach the desired temperature and heat pumping capacity; and to provide the basic information necessary for proper assembly design.
Curves with Th = 27 °C indicate what to expect operating a well designed, fan cooled, assembly in ambient temperatures around 20 °C (70 °F) with an operational "hot-side" temperature or Th about 7 °C above ambient.
Curves with Th = 50 °C indicate performance expectations from assemblies with limited heat-sinking space and hot-side temperatures about 30 °C above ambient. This curve is also helpful for outdoor, box-in-box, and other applications with (relative) ambient temperatures in the 40-50 °C range.
