Mounting Options – Thermoelectric Air Conditioners

EIC Solutions, Inc. offers a selection of mounting options to best fit your application. Click through to view the different options available. The drawings are for reference purposes only, the thermoelectric air conditioners have varying footprints based on model. Please refer to individual model features to determine if there is space for mounting. We recommend a minimum of 2” of clearance for airflow between the air conditioner and equipment.


Through-mount

Through mount is the most common mounting option. The mounting flange is centered in the middle of the air conditioner resulting in approximately half of the air conditioner protruding into your enclosure (cold side) and half of the unit sitting on the outside of the enclosure (hot side). This is suitable for both vertical and horizontal orientations.

  • Though mount units will protrude into your enclosure approximately 4-5” depending on model.
  • Vertically orientated through mounted AC’s require a vertical drip pan for condensation management.
  • Horizontally orientated units require a horizontal drip pan for condensation management.
  • The 120 series (200 BTU), 151 series (2500 BTU) and 161 series (3200 BTU) use an integral drip pan in vertical orientation.
  • Through mount units are suitable for both vertical and horizontal orientations.

Flush-mount

Flush mount refers to the air conditioner sitting completely on the outside of the enclosure resulting in no protrusion into the enclosure. It is ideal for applications that cannot allow protrusion within the enclosure due to space constraint or equipment interference. Flush mounting is suitable for both vertical and horizontal orientations.

  • Flush mount units will not protrude inside the enclosure.
  • Units require an extension frame to achieve a flush mount. (except the 120 series 200 BTU which has a separate flush-mount version)
  • The extension frame serves as a drip pan for flush mounted units in a vertical orientation.
  • A horizontal drip pan is required for flush mounted units in a horizontal orientation.

Recessed Mount

Recessed mount is when the entire air conditioner is housed inside of the enclosure resulting in no protrusion on the outside of the enclosure. This is best for applications where the space around the enclosure is limited or the air conditioner’s external protrusion could interfere with the aesthetics of an enclosure. Recessed-mounting is suitable for vertical orientation only.

  • All recessed mount AC units protrude entirely inside the enclosure.
  • Units require a recessed frame to achieve a recessed mount.
  • A vertical drip pan is required for condensate management except the 120 series (200 BTU), 151 series (2500 BTU) and 161 series (3200 BTU) which use an integral drip pan.
  • Recessed mount AC units are only suitable for mounting in vertical orientation.

Vertical Orientation

Refers to the air conditioner being mounted to a vertical plane with the mounting flange oriented vertically from top to bottom. Air conditioners can be mounted to the sides, front, or rear of enclosure when in vertical orientation.

  • Units require a vertical drip pan or extension frame for condensation management.
  • The 120 series (200 BTU), 151 series (2500 BTU) and the 161 series (3200 BTU) use integral vertical drip pans.
  • Vertical orientation is the only mounting option for the 120 series (200 BTU) and 140 series (400 BTU (DC)) series.
  • Vertically orientated units are suitable for through, flush, or recessed mounting.

Horizontal Orientation (Top) 

Refers to the air conditioner being mounted horizontally to the top of enclosure with the mounting flange oriented parallel to the ground. Units cannot be mounted horizontally on the bottom of an enclosure due to possible condensation management issues.

  • Units require a horizontal drip pan for condensation management.
  • The 120 series (200 BTU) and 140 series (400 BTU (DC)) series cannot be mounted horizontally
  • Horizontally orientated units are suitable for through or flush mounted units only.
