      Description: UTX15-288-F2-5252-TA-W6

The UT15-288-F2-5252-TA-W6 is a high heat flux density thermoelectric cooler. The thermoelectric module is assembled with a large number of semiconducting thermoelectric couples to achieve a higher heat pumping capacity than standard single stage thermoelectric coolers. It has a maximum Qc of 278.5 Watts when ΔT = 0 and a maximum ΔT of 68.9 °C at Qc = 0.
  • High heat pump density
  • Precise temperature control
  • Reliable solid-state operation
  • No sound or vibration
  • DC operation
  • RoHS-compliant

Please Note: Actual application performance will vary from calculated values based on actual thermal design characteristics.

Electrical and Thermal Performance

For maximum performance, be sure to orient the CONTROL side of the TEC against the application to be managed and the HEATSINK side against the heat sink or other heat rejection method. The CONTROL side is always opposite the side with lead attachments. Lead attachment is a passive heat loss and less impactful if located on the side that attaches to the heat exchanger.

Use the sliders, input fields and [UPDATE] button below to enter your application's electrical and thermal conditions. Use the Graph Y and X Axis buttons to display a variety of performance curves and use the Voltage/Current slider to choose the electrical operating point to display performance.
