How many types of Peltier plates are there??

  1. Sep 6, 2014 #1
    I need to get a Peltier tile/plate for one of my projects and I got really confused when deciding between them based on No. codes on it, as they're all similar in dimension.

    Like for example, I was looking for 4cmx4cm Peltier plate, and I found myself getting confused when there were choices like TEC1-12710, TEC1-12706, TEC1-12705, and I'm not sure if there's even more.

    So what are their differences and what do those No. codes even represent?

    Browsing an on-line catalogue, it appears that the final decimals code Imax, and the special options are in the alphas following.

    Doug, what do you mean by special options...? o_O?
