Laird Technologies, Inc. has released its revised “Thermoelectric Handbook.” Available for download from the Laird website, the handbook provides 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. Designed for engineers with novice to intermediate thermoelectric experience, the handbook examines the company’s 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.
