Thermal Edge Publishes Guide to Cooling Control Panels

Leading Manufacturer of Temperature Control Units Offers E-Book for Companies Striving to Keep Electrical Enclosures From Overheating

IRVING, TX --(Marketwired - April 07, 2016) - Thermal Edge, Inc., a leading manufacturer of temperature control units for electrical enclosures, announced today that it has published a resource for companies struggling to design control panels that keep electrical components properly cooled. The e-book, Thermal Management Guide: Meeting Control Panel Space Requirements and Avoiding Overheating, is available for free download at www.thermal-edge.com/control-panel-temperature-control.

Floor space comes at a premium in most manufacturing areas. Designers are increasingly using smaller electrical enclosures to save space, but this strategy presents a challenge in maintaining safe operating temperatures. Unless control panels are properly planned, designed, and monitored, excessive component temperatures can lead to premature failure, thus jeopardizing long-term reliability and leading to increased operating costs. Thermal Edge's new e-book is a resource for companies striving to meet the challenge of cooling smaller yet hotter electrical enclosures. Features of the guide include:

  • Seven guidelines to ensure long-term, reliable operation of electrical equipment housed in enclosures
  • Five ways to incorporate thermal management into panel design, and three external footprint considerations
  • Five common project complications that can impact thermal management
  • Details on how to ensure safe and efficient operation in a space-limited enclosure

"Temperature control is a crucial component in the design of control panels," says Andy Cohen, President of Thermal Edge, Inc. "This planning must start at the design phase in order to meet space requirements and avoid overheating; failure to do so can lead to equipment damage, thus resulting in increased costs. Our new e-book helps companies looking to make the best design decisions with their control panels in order to reduce heat load, save floor space, and boost productivity."
