At present thermoelectric coolers are extensively used in such high-technology fields as telecommunications, electronics, space, medicine, and others. Modern laser, optical, and radioelectronic systems cannot be built without thermoelectric cooling and thermostatically controlled systems. Thermoelectric coolers are also widely used in such consumer goods as portable refrigerators, freezers, water coolers, compact air conditioners, etc.
Great promise is offered by the use of TECs for energy generation. A thermoelectric generator allows electricity to be obtained from any heat source.
Basic applications of thermoelectric coolers and assemblies:
Benefits of thermoelectric coolers:
All these advantages make thermoelectric coolers highly popular, that is confirmed by a growing demand for these components all over the world.
