THERMOELECTRIC GENERATORS

Thermoelectric harvesting is considered a key component for many future technological applications, like wireless sensor networks, multi-purpose self-organising autonomous (micro-)systems and many others. The key advantages of thermoelectric micro-generators: small sizes, simple scalability; no moving parts, very long operational lifetime – tens of years without maintenance. And the most unique property – the possibility to convert heat into electricity starting from very low temperature differences of just a few degrees.

THERMOELECTRIC HEAT FLUX SENSORS

The advantage of thermoelectric module (TEM) over differential thermocouple is in much higher Seebeck effect (electromotive force), exactly because of semiconductor  usage. For example, in usual Copper-Constantan thermocouple the electromotive (EMF) is 38uV/K, while one BiTe P-N pellet pair inside a thermoelectric module provides EMF 400uV/K - ten times higher. This key advantage makes thermoelectric modules very promising to use as heat flux sensors.

DX5100 Controllers have a bi-directional (heating and cooling) PID regulation with PID Auto-Tune function. Besides the PID regulation additional modes of operation are realized in the Controller: DC voltage mode, T-regulation and programming of an object temperature behaviour with time.

Z-METERS FOR THERMOELECTRIC MODULES EXPRESS ANALYSIS AND QC

Thermoelectric Modules (TEMs) are solid state devices with very long maintenance-free lifetime. Modern thermoelectric modules provide more than 25 years of continuous operating at normal conditions. However mounting procedures and/or improper handling may increase the risks of TEM damages.

Z-Meters are the best solution for thermoelectric modules express quality control and performance testing.
