The general function of a thermoelectric module (also called Peltier module) is that one side gets cold and the other side gets warm. The temperature can easily be controlled and adjusted for the actual need. For example to maintain a specific temperature.
We have Thermoelectric modules (TEM) and Thermoelectric assemblies (TEA) where TEM is the actual Peltier module which creates the temperatures. The TEA’s are prepared plug-and-play modules (as the picture below show) where in this example the Peltier module is assembled with cooling profiles and fans to exchange the heat/cold into the air. Other types are available with water cooling plates etc.
