Guide on the Importance of Temperature Control in Electrical Enclosures Published by Thermal Edge, Inc.

New E-Book by Leader in Enclosure Thermal Management Solutions Shares the Consequences of Rising Temperatures

IRVING, TX--(Marketwired - August 10, 2015) - Thermal Edge, Inc., a leading manufacturer of temperature control units for electrical enclosures, announced today the launch of a guide on the importance of proper temperature control in protecting sensitive electrical equipment typically housed in enclosures. The e-book, Temperature Control for Electrical Enclosures: Why You Cant Ignore It, is available for free download at

Many of the electrical control equipment failures around the world are caused by overheating, most of them attributed to improper temperature control within the enclosure. For a business, this means unexpected costs associated with maintenance, component failure, downtime for replacement parts, and in some cases, the replacement of the entire system. This e-book provides an overview of the common issues that can arise when temperature control is ignored.

Highlights of this guide include:

  • How to identify causes of electrical equipment damage
  • Potential issues caused by high or low temperature
  • The effect of humidity on enclosure equipment
  • What a temperature control system can do to help

"It’s pretty common for a control panel or other equipment to suddenly fail without any indication as to what caused the failure," says Barry Slotnick, a Product Manager with Thermal Edge, Inc., and a 40-year product development and marketing veteran. "In many cases, the enclosure's temperature should be the first thing to check, and when building an enclosure, temperature should always be factored in right away. However, all too often temperature or certain temperature related variables are completely ignored because conventional methods of ventilation worked in the past. Engineers and maintenance personnel need to keep in mind that this isn't always sufficient with today's technology."
