As we all know, temperature is one of the main causes of malfunction in electrical cabinets, and it’s even more difficult to cool them in confined spaces, where air circulation is minimal. Few degrees of variation are enough to reduce electrical and electronic components’ performance and to compromise their proper functioning: therefore become necessary to maintain optimal thermal conditions to ensure the normal life of the equipment.
But if the space in which the components are housed become more and more limited, how can ventilation be ensured? Through proper thermal balancing and correct power loads distribution.
Proper design of the enclosure
The first step is undoubtedly an appropriate design of the electrical cabinet. In addition to adequately fitting the cabinet inside, the area around the enclosures must be checked, especially if the power cabinet is installed in a tight place or in a aisle, so that there are no impediments for the doors complete opening and wall cooling units or vents installation..
Which ventilation solutions for enclosures fit into small spaces?
The Fandis T and TP roof exhaust units and the new KCU roof cooling units for cabinets are perfect where the space outside is very little, but there’s a need to ventilate and cool the cabinet. For ventilation systems with a filter, in fact, forced ventilation can be realized through our T and TP roof exhaust units, when it’s necessary to extract a large amount of heat or it is not possible to install fan filters on the side walls for lack of space.
The new KCU roof cooling units are particularly well-suited when it is not possible to wall-mount an air conditioner because there are compact production lines or electric cabinets alongside. You can then use the top-mounted, less accessible, but space-saving solution that meets any demanding applications.
