AZTEC Software Download

The AZTEC™ Thermoelectric Module Simulation Software allows users to specify a given set of input variables based on application attributes and the program will select the optimal TEM(s) for trial.  The program also contains an analysis worksheet, which simulates how the TEM(s) will function under a specific set of operating conditions. Registration is required for first-time users by completing and submitting the online form and then following the software installation instructions. 

The TEM Selection Tool in AZTEC™ uses input variables, such as heat load, ambient and control temperatures, input voltage requirement and thermal resistance of hot side heat exchangers to recommend an ideal TEM(s) needed to reach an application’s operating condition.

AZTEC™ also features an Analysis Worksheet Tool, which simulates the expected thermoelectric output parameters based on a given set of thermal and electrical operating points. Output parameters calculated include: the hot and cold side temperatures of the TEM, heat pumped at the cold surface of the TEM, coefficient of performance (COP) and input power requirements.  The total hot side heat dissipation is also calculated, as it is beneficial in sizing a proper heat exchanger, which commonly mounts directly onto a TEM. 

The Qc Estimating Worksheet within the program calculates an estimate on the heat load for device (spot) or chamber (volume) cooling applications.  Computations are made based on input provided by the user such as temperature requirements, volumetric dimensions, insulation thickness, material properties and active heat load.
