TEC1-12715 12V Peltier Plate Module (1B5 Peltier plate 40x40)

Description: Thermoelectric coolers (TEC or Peltier) create a temperature differential on each side. One side gets hot and the other side gets cool. Therefore, they can be used to either warm something up or cool something down, depending on which side you use. You can also take advantage of a temperature differential to generate electricity.

This Peltier works very well as long as you remove the heat from the hot side. After turning on the device, the hot side will heat quickly, the cold side will cool quickly. If you do not remove the heat from the hot side (with a heat sink or other device), the Peltier will quickly reach stasis and do nothing. We recommend using an old computer CPU heatsink or other block of metal to pull heat from the hot side. We were able to use a computer power supply and CPU heatsink to make the cold side so uncomfortably cold we could not hold our finger to it.

Note: It is imperative that a heat sink is used on the hot side of the module. Running the module without one can cause damage to this part. If it’s too hot to comfortably touch, you’re in the danger zone!

Automatic Electric Water Bilge Pump Switch Sensor (bilge pump float switch)
Description:

Our bilge pump float switch is safer than mercury switches, this switch utilizes a mercury-free rolling ball mechanism and includes an exclusive anti-spike feature to prevent the rapid on/off cycling encountered with some switches. Made of rugged thermoplastic. Universal design works with all 12V, 24V and 32V bilge pumps.

A bilge pump float switch is a smart device used in boats that turns on a bilge pump when the water in the bilge reaches a certain level. It is a must-have in any boat that is left unattended for any length of time, as all boats tend to leak at least some water. This switch is submerged, so you need to waterproof the electrical connections and hang the wires to ensure they stay as dry as possible.
 
Features:
 
1. Turn pump on when water level reaches 2 (51mm).
2. Turn pump off when water level reaches 3/4 (19mm).
3. Ideal flow sensor for bilge pumps.
4. Heavy duty flow switch is designed for the toughest applications.
