TM 71-1.0-3.0 Thermoelectric Cooling Module
Specifications with Thot = 27 °С
20 x 20 x 3.2
Multi-purpose module TM 71-1.0-3.0 is a popular 20 x 20mm cooler intended for use with 5 to 8.6 volt (DC) power sources. Its compact size, good cooling capacity and relatively low heat ejection, make the module particularly popular where thermal loads are moderate and/or heatsinking space is limited.
Can be used with a very wide variety of economical extruded heat-sinks without the hot-side temperature becoming unreasonably high. It’s also frequently used in strings. For example, two connected in series can be operated from a 12V source (or 15V). Four in series are operated with a 24V source, etc. A combination of parallel strings of modules in series allows coverage of a large surface area.
TM 71-1.0-3.0 may be used for cooling, heating and thermal stabilization and is employed in a wide range of applications including electro-optic/photonic, fiber optic, aerospace/military, telecommunications. A version for thermal cycling is available.
Available with metalized and tinned surfaces.

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 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 are for outdoor, box-in-box, and other applications with ambient temperatures in the 40-50 °C range.
