Hi Jeremy

Are you a friend of Peter Michael Jack, the author ?  I have a feeling someone is gently pulling 
someone's leg.  But perhaps not.  PMJ is saying that he thinks TEMs are under.represented in 
conventional electrical theory and he wants to define a new class of things called slactors.  
Perhaps he should have called them PMJs.  ( Peanut butter, Margarine and Jelly ? )  Most 
electronic practioners have not felt an urge to give reversible thermal engines a group name so I 
guess PMJ wins the day.

If you want to learn more about TEMs ( Thermoelectric Modules ) check out
other sites
