Thermoelectric Handbook by Laird Technologies

Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of customized, performance-critical components for wireless systems and other advanced electronics applications, announced the release of its revised “Thermoelectric Handbook.” The handbook focuses on TEMs and provides in-depth insight into understanding the basic structure and function of TEMs, parameters required for device selection, assembly tips for mounting TEMs onto heat exchangers, and available temperature control options.

Available only online, the handbook is accessible for downloading, viewing, and printing from the Thermoelectric Modules (TEMs) section of the Laird Technologies.

“The Thermoelectric Handbook is a valuable tool that every thermal engineer should reference when specifying a thermoelectric solution in their application,” commented Andrew Dereka, Laird Technologies Thermoelectrics Product Manager. “This is a comprehensive tutorial that educates readers on the proper design and installation of thermoelectric modules to avoid the common errors engineers make that can result in a reduced product life or performance limitation of end user’s application unnecessarily.”

Designed for engineers with novice to intermediate thermoelectric experience, the handbook examines Laird Technologies’ TEM product portfolio and discusses TEM construction, function, operation limitations, correct mounting procedures and hardware selection, protection options against condensation, heat transfer formulae, and temperature controller selection.

As an industry leader in high-performance and cost-effective TEM solutions, Laird Technologies provides the knowledge, innovation, and resources to ensure exceptional thermal performance and customer satisfaction for applications in the medical, analytical, telecom, industrial, and consumer markets.
