I am working on my science fair project and only have 5 peliter modules. In order to build my project I need to know how far it must be to keep from being damaged because I can not replace these once I have begun.

  • \$\begingroup\$ far enough away to keep its temperature within data sheet specifications. \$\endgroup\$ – Neil_UK Oct 29 '17 at 18:22

    \$\begingroup\$ Underspecified. You need to not exceed rated temperature. If you wait to ask how to achieve that with your setup you need to describe the setup \$\endgroup\$ – PlasmaHH Oct 29 '17 at 19:51

I recommend that you add a piece of aluminum block around 3-4 mm thick with good quality thermal paste and then bring it close to the candle at a distance and at the same time measure the temperature of the aluminum block. Make sure you stay below the limit around 55-65C since 75C is max temp. Because too much heat you will melt the solder connections inside and ruin it. Good luck!
