Temperature-sensitive electronics operate in a wide array of applications and industries. Computers and other sensitive electronic devices are being used increasingly in environments where they’re being subjected to hostile and inhospitable surroundings. High temperatures, contaminant-laden air, and humid and corrosive atmospheres can wreak havoc on electronic equipment. Few companies today can afford the costs and inconvenience associated with repairs, downtime, and lost data due to inadequate protection of their operation-critical electronic equipment. Oftentimes, electronic failure due to a harsh environment or unwanted heat can be prevented with a compact, lightweight, thermoelectric cooling system.
Adjustable temperature controls, low maintenance and long life cycles are the defining characteristics of EIC’s products that are essential to properly preserve the functionality of sensitive electronics. Combined with EIC’s ease of implementation, high reliability and effective, field-proven cooling, there are no competitive solutions that provide the same degree of comprehensive protection for sensitive electronics.
EIC’s Protector™ Series Air Conditioned Enclosures play an important role in insuring reliable performance of electrical and electronic equipment in both indoor and outdoor environments.
Welcome to part three of our series on Getting to Know Thermoelectric Cooling Technology. In our concluding post we will examine some of the most treacherous environments, inhospitable surroundings and corrosive atmospheres that destroy electronic and electrical devices.
In Part 2 of this series, we would like to focus on computers, sensitive electronics and other mission-critical devices.
A nuclear power plant approached EIC Solutions because they were unhappy with the failure rates and maintenance levels of their compressor-based cooling systems. EIC Solutions provides the plant with the Protector™ Series Electronic Enclosure
When the New Meadowlands Stadium was constructed, its LCD scoreboards’ electrical wiring components and controls had to be mounted close to the screens to reduce wire length and eliminate any RF/EMI noise. The best mounting position was behind the screens, which exposed them to weather elements.
EIC Solutions, Inc. recently completed the delivery of 110 Protector™ Series Air Conditioned Stainless Steel Enclosures for a Department of Homeland Security project. The EIC Protector™ Series was chosen as a solution for cooling and heating RFID systems used for frequent crosser recognition at U.S. border crossings, which have become more widespread as post-9/11 security measures have increased.
An exploration and production (E&P) company in the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry had a need to cool outdoor electrical control panels in their offshore drilling rigs and refining plants in the Gulf of Mexico. In addition to cooling the panel enclosures, the solution had to be compatible with their IS Barriers (Intrinsically Safe Barriers) that are designed to ensure that only low voltages and currents enter the hazardous area and that ignition of the hazardous atmosphere cannot occur.
EIC Solutions has recently made a new, informative white paper available. This white paper, “Cooling System Options for Electronic Enclosure Cooling: Do Thermoelectric Air Conditioners Have the Advantage?” discusses four popular options for cooling electronic/electrical equipment housed in enclosures and cabinets.
