Cabinet Cooling & Thermal Control
PLC/DCS Cabinet Ventilation 1-2
Nice design: Sufficient sized air inlets near to the panel’s bottom, ventilation fans within the roof + nice and adequate IPX1 cover on top.
Short-Circuiting the air flow: For example, using water to cool the face of the panels.
Not necessary having any filter at the fan exhaust: In case we need, we should have it cleaned on regular bases.
Troubleshooting electrical systems: Loose/deteriorated connections, over loaded cables, over loaded fuses or breakers, overheating in distribution equipment, phase load imbalance,…
Benefits : Determines if the components and system have been properly installed and are not damaged, reduces downtime, reduces risk of equipment failure, increases safety.
