As we have already seen, the thermal dissipation of an electrical cabinet is among the most important elements to be evaluated before the installation of the enclosure itself: it’s necessary to calculate the heat balance to be able to guarantee the correct functioning of the electronic devices contained and to make arrangements to maintain the optimal internal temperature. In the previous #whitepaper regarding the thermal dissipation of an electrical cabinet we have presented some calculations that are decisive for the correct design, but what happens if the panel is placed outside, subject to weather?
Is the thermal balance of an enclosure different in case of external applications?
Yes: in this type of application, it’s important to consider the solar component, in addition to the other values necessary for calculating the thermal cooling power.
The UNI 10349 standard
For our attached #whitepaper, we made reference to the UNI 10349 standard: we provide indications regarding the sol-air temperature, to calculate the effective thermal power coming from the sun capable of crossing the walls of the electrical cabinet.
