20 x 20 x 3.4


TM 31-1.4-8.5 is a general purpose single-stage thermoelectric module, with exceptional cooling capacity for a module powered by a 3.3V DC power source. With a 20 x 20 mm footprint and the (Qcmax) of 18.8 watts, it’s a great choice when voltage is limited and current is abundant.

TM 31-1.4-8.5 may be used for cooling, heating and thermal stabilization and is employed in a wide range of applications including including medical, analytical, laboratory & scientific instruments, electro-optics, telecommunications and military. A version for thermal cycling is available.

In electro-optic and photonic applications, TM 31-1.4-8.5 is commonly used to maintain a constant temperature in order to stabilize the wavelength of a diode, detector or sensor.

Performance Curves

Thermoelectric module performance curves are graphical representations showing the relationships between power applied and net cooling for a specific TE module.

Performance curves are valuable tools for quickly determining if a TE module is a suitable COOLER for an application; learning what power is required for an appropriate module to reach the desired temperature and heat pumping capacity; and to provide the basic information necessary for proper assembly design.

Curves with Th = 27 °C indicate what to expect operating in ambient temperatures around 20 °C (70 °F) with an operational "hot-side" temperature or Th about 7 °C above ambient.

Curves with Th = 50 °C are for outdoor, box-in-box, and other applications with ambient temperatures in the 40-50 °C range.
