Watt Reference Chart

This chart is designed to help estimate the approximate heat dissipation of the equipment housed within your enclosure. In many cases the project details/specifications are not available during the design phase. This chart is intended to provide a rough estimate of the heat dissipation. This figure can vary significantly based on equipment efficiency, voltage, phase, and length of operation. You must confirm the actual heat dissipation of your equipment with the equipment manufacturer or follow the guidelines available in our eBook, Understanding Heat Load, to get an exact heat dissipation figure.

***This chart is for reference only. Actual heat dissipation of your equipment may not be equal to what is listed in this chart. It is the customer’s responsibility to confirm that the heat dissipation used to determine the cooling solution is correct. ***

Determining the heat dissipation of your equipment is crucial to the proper selection of a cooling system. The correct air conditioning solution can help ensure optimal equipment performance, preventing equipment downtime or failure. If you are unsure of the power consumption/heat dissipation of your electronic equipment please contact an EIC’s knowledgeable sales engineers for assistance.
