Recent research has identified the individual infrastructural goals for railway rolling stock which include improved reliability, increased capacity and greater efficiency. Oncoming system requirements will include remote diagnostic systems offering fast recovery in case of disruptions, innovative obstacle detection systems preventing train collisions, and avoidance of faulty communications providing perfect traffic management.
Your new industrial electronic product has been designed and the board components specified. It has been prototyped, either on a development board to check functionality and performance or laid out on a final PCB design. It has been debugged, tested, tweaked, tested again and finally signed off for production. So far, so good. Now all that has to be done is to decide on the choice of enclosure for it.
The thermal conditions in enclosures and cabinets directly impact the longevity of the electrical and electronic components they house. Therefore, it is necessary to avoid certain pitfalls when cooling the enclosure that could lead to malfunctions and compromise the equipment’s operation. Here, Axair Fans outlines five of the most common enclosure cooling mistakes and how not to make them.
