ESPRYX™ 

Thermoelectric generator (TEG) & thermoelectric cooler (TEC/Peltier) modules produced by a new, flexible, automated, and mass-scalable process

Thermoelectricity

Thermoelectricity is the field which deals with the relationship between temperature and electricity. Both, thermoelectric generators (TEGs) and thermoelectric coolers (TECs) are based on the thermoelectric effect. If a temperature difference is applied across a TEG module, a voltage is produced. If a voltage is applied to a TEC module, it will pump heat.

ESPRYX™ production process

After work spanning several years, a team at Creavis has now come up with a high-performance approach that allows the production of thermoelectric generators (TEGs) and thermoelectric coolers (TECs/Peltier) modules in a fully automated, flexible, continuous and industrially scalable process.

ESPRYX™ TEG and TEC modules

The thermoelectric modules, which come in a completely new design are to be marketed under the brand name ESPRYX™. The smart module design enable both TEG and TEC/Peltier module production. Thanks to their choice of materials and a special black protective coating ESPRYX™ performs well at temperatures up to remarkable 280°C.

Application Fields

The potential application fields for the resulting ESPRYX™ modules are manifold; because of its design allowing its use as both TEG and TEC/Peltier elements, as well as, for its robustness, size and shape flexibility, and scalability. Each specific application has its own requirements; ESPRYX™ is best suited in applications requiring compact size, low weight, low noise levels, wireless power, and mobility.
