Condensation Control In Electrical Enclosures

Electrical enclosures are used to protect delicate electronic equipment from water and dust but also for safety. As the components inside the enclosure are live, they need protection to prevent electrical shocks. Condensation, caused by warm moist air coming into contact with cooler surfaces causes electrical equipment housed within enclosures to fail prematurely. Condensation will only form at, or close to Dew point (65% humidity), but oxidation / rusting can take place at medium levels of relative humidity at 60% depending on the type and ...


Eradicating Enclosure Condensation – What’s The Secret?

Condensation in enclosures can cause housed electrical components to fail prematurely. The simple way to eliminate this is to keep your enclosure temperature as little as 5 degrees higher than the ambient temp. By running your enclosures at 65% relative humidity, condensation is much less likely to form.  A regulator from the Fandis thermal management range will help you to achieve this and will safeguard your components from the problems caused by fluctuating temperatures. Axair are the exclusive UK supplier of Fandis regulators and acces...
