Hobby Components Peltier Kit (HCTHER0005)

Post by admin » Sun Sep 08, 2013 11:53 am


This is an ideal kit for experimenting with peltier devices. It contains everything required to provide sufficient thermal cooling and even includes a 12V 6A power supply! The peltier device is a thermoelectric cooling device or TEC that acts like solid state heat pump. By applying a suitable power source the peltier device will transfer heat from one surface to another resulting in one side becoming cool, and the other side becoming hot. This means that the device can be used as either a heater or cooler.
