Effective Condensation Control in Electrical Control Panels
Fandis anti condensation enclosure heaters are used for warming up the air inside electrical cabinets protecting electrical and electronic components from condensation and corrosion. Axair Fans cabinet heaters have a self regulating PTC element that is designed to maintain optimal temperatures within panels or enclosures and are made from a black anodised aluminium. Heaters should be used in circumstances where there is a change in temperature in the enclosure or cabinet that may result in condensation.
For many years, Axair has operated in the thermal management market, supplying high quality enclosure solutions from Italian manufacturer, Fandis, including heaters, lights, thermostats and switches to protect and equip panels sufficiently or as required by our customers. Effective thermal management is essential for ensuring the reliability of electronic components within an enclosure. Our enclosure ventilation accessories and climate control solutions will meet customer needs for heat dissipation and temperature control, preventing the premature failure of equipment.
By keeping an enclosure at a temperature of as little as 5 degrees higher than that of the ambient temperature, condensation can be eliminated. The warmer the air, the more water vapour it can contain. When air is cooled it can no longer hold the water vapour and reaches its dew point – this is where condensation arises.
The most effective solution to prevent condensation includes enclosure heaters, hygrostats and thermostats. Heaters are typically used alongside fan filter units and thermostats with enclosures to ensure they stay above the minimum operating temperature and to control condensation formation.
