Keeping it cool with Linkwell from Charter Controls
In recent years, many professionals in the electrical industry have observed that enclosure cooling requirements have been compromised in order to cut costs.
Accumulated heat generated inside an enclosure by products such as contactors, drives, power supplies and transformers, can result in the enclosure overheating – often exceeding the rated operating temperature of some products. This will reduce the life span, stable operation and functionality. Climate change is also exacerbating this phenomenon.
Over the past 30 years, Malcolm Greenhill, Managing Director of Unipower UK Ltd (trading as Charter Controls), has made it his mission to provide the UK electrical industry with high-quality control panel products – at competitive prices. Charter Controls is not a distributor in the traditional sense, but a manufacturers’ agent. It imports and sells to the controls and automation industry (either directly or via specialist control gear distributors) and re-exports via major UK-based global distributors.
The company is now extending its product offer with a range of fan filters and thermostats manufactured by Linkwell. Stocks include a range of sizes with ingress protection (IP54 rating) and 25 to 1350m3/h of airflow volume-capable fans and their corresponding exit filters. The design includes a quick-release filter access latch with an embedded LED indicator which indicates power and normal operation of the fan. This enables maintenance to identify normal operation from a distance. The quick-release latch allows the filter to be changed in seconds. The fan filters are moulded in RAL 7035 colour, UL rated, self-quenching thermoplastic that can be coloured and labelled in higher quantities. All the fans and thermostats carry CE and RoHS certification, as per EU norms.
