    Hi, I have an old thermoelectric device that I’m not sure is still working correctly… Any good ways to test it?

    Hey Rod,

    Testing a TEC is actually pretty simple. Make sure to derate the unit first and then connect it to an appropriate power supply. If everything is working well, one side of the cooler should feel cool and the other hot. Don’t run this test longer than you have to so you do not damage the unit.

    Hope this helped!
