People don’t want to live in dirty environments and neither do electronics. Electronic controls and instrumentation are highly sensitive to factors like dust, oil, high humidity, and excessive heat. Maintaining tight control over temperatures inside an electronics enclosure is essential for protecting these devices. System designers can choose from a variety of cooling options, including natural convection, fans, air-to-air heat exchangers, air-to-water heat exchangers, and air conditioners. Each of these technologies offers its own unique style, advantages, and customization options.
It’s tough for data center engineers and designers to manage the impact of Big Data and the resulting rapid growth in data centers that’s creating. Traditional data centers are giving way to new IT spaces, and that’s creating demand for different approaches to IT enclosure design.
