SEALING TYPE

The  reliability of thermoelectric modules (TEMs) can be degraded  when moisture or vapor is being condense within the device. This causes corrosion in the TEM and eventually leads to  failure.  There are two main common sealing:

S – silicon sealing;  (preferable in cycling applications)
E – epoxy sealing;  ( very strong, more brittle  and has better moisture prevention capability to enter the TEM)

Absence of sealing index means modules without sealing.

I-  Operating current of the TEC module in Amps

I – max Maximum operating Current that results in maximum temperature difference dT

Qc – Amount of heat that can be observed at the cooling side of the TEC (in watts)

Q max -The maximum amount of heat at the cold side when I – I max and Delta T =0

Thot – Temperature at the hot side of the TEC  during operation

Tcold -Temperature at the cold side of the TEC during operation

Delta T  The difference in temperature between hot and cold Sides

Delta T max The Maximum difference in temperature between hot and cold Sides at I max

U max Voltage supply at I max

Epsilon TEC cooling efficiency in %

Alpha Seeback coefficient  the TEC in Voltage/Celsius

K Thermal conductivity (w/cm*c)

N  Number of Thermoelctric elements

NOTE! MAX ΔT IS REDUCED BY 2-3°С FOR SILICONE AND BY 1-2°С FOR EPOXY SEALING VERSIONS.
