Thermo-Electric Coolers (TECs, TE coolers, or peltier modules) can generate both heating or cooling thermal power when applying an electric DC current at different directions. When the current flows in one direction, one of the TEC's plates is heated up while the other is cooled down. As the current reverses the direction, the TEC plates will reverse their thermal polarity accordingly.
