What is a Thermoelectric Cooler

April 28, 2020 by Laird Thermal Systems


Thermoelectric coolers are active solid-state heat pumps with no moving parts, fluids or gasses. Utilizing the Peltier effect to move heat away from sensitive electronics, thermoelectric coolers offer an efficient cooling system for a wide range of applications with cooling capacity requirements of more than 300 Watts.

Also referred to as Peltier coolers, these solid-state devices are designed with size, efficiency, low power requirement, cost, and reliability in mind. Thermoelectric coolers enable OEMs to meet thermal design challenges including spot cooling, refrigeration, or temperature stabilization.

In this white paper by Laird Thermal Systems, learn more about thermoelectric coolers and the advantages they offer when compared to alternate cooling.
