The challenge of protecting your control equipment

In modern control cabinets, components are tending to become more compact. This, however, does not lead to a reduction in heat dissipation. Also, the problem of so-called ‘Hot spots’ is getting more relevant. These are areas in which ‘heat generating components’ can create stresses on the adjoining components, leading to a possible local temperature increase to >45ºC. For components within the ‘hot spot’ or within close proximity, premature ageing can occur. Lutze will discuss these issues and provide practical concepts on how to reduce these problems in the design of control panels.

Rittal will detail the considerations that machine builders should undertake when designing a protective environment for their control equipment; Things such as choosing the right type of enclosure for the environment of the finished product, heat considerations and what type of cooling can be utilised, dependent upon where it’s installed.
