Test Equipment

Thermoelectric device characterisation under real-world conditions is an essential step in the design validation cycle. As such, we offer various electro-mechanical instruments to asses the thermal and/or electrical performance of thermoelectric devices working in power generating mode, Peltier cooling mode, or heating mode.

If you already have a thermo-mechanical system (or a TEG power generating system) and you need to:

  • verify the electrical characteristic of your TEG(s)
  • operate your TEG system electrically at-load to quantify continuous power generation

then we recommend our new RO3 I-V tracer and dynamic electronic load. This test equipment is ideal also for use with solar PV panels and solar cells.

Test Fixtures

TCS offer test systems suitable for evaluating power generation (Seebeck) and heat pumping (Peltier) modules under "real world" conditions (as opposed to a unit specifically designed for TE device metrology).

Thermoelectric Device Testing Services

We offer comprehensive testing services of thermoelectric devices for both heat pumping or power generation applications. We can test devices up to 70 x 70 mm and of any thickness under various conditions as decided by the customer and we can obtain both the electrical characteristic and the thermal behaviour.
