Cooling of Enclosures

This article is an excellent referencing of the different types of cooling methods used in industrial enclosure applications. The challenge is always that the focus of the design can be the main functional components like AC/DC drives and PLCs, where the enclosure and subsequent cooling requirements are afterthoughts. Broerman does a great job introducing the fact that an 18*F temperature rise changes the reliability of some electronic components by 50%.
ICD has full lines of metallic and non-metallic enclosures with cooling fans as an offering. If you do not know what you need or have design questions, contact us to help out.
