The risk of condensation
As insiders know well, a factor that can negatively affect the operation of an enclosure is condensation. This phenomenon occurs when the temperature rapidly drops below the “dew point”, that is, the temperature at which the percentage of liquid contained in the air begins to condense. Obviously, the formation of these droplets can damage the electronic devices contained in the panel, through corrosion phenomena.
How to avoid condensation in electrical panels?
To avoid condensation, it is sufficient to keep the temperature inside the enclosure a few degrees above the dew point, by installing one or more anti-condensation heaters, such as those we present in our Fucsis range.
Fucsis anti-condensation heaters
Our H series heaters are equipped with an aluminum heatsink, with a large dispersing surface, inside which the PTC heating elements are housed, electronic components formed by a polycrystalline ceramic with the ability to increase its resistance until it reaches the particular point “Curie point”, which corresponds to the passage of only the energy necessary to maintain the element at the established temperature.
In this way, the anti-condensation heater, once connected to the power supply, reaches a higher temperature than the ambient one and thus, due to the particular shape of the finned heat sink, a heat exchange is produced between the air and the heater.
Furthermore, you can choose whether to equip the heater with a touch proof plastic casing instead of the usual aluminum one, to avoid burns from accidental contacts.
The range of H series heaters is available in versions with cable, with quick conductor clamp and ventilated to satisfy every need of use.
The heaters can be controlled by a thermostat and/or hygrostat which intervene to bring the temperature inside the panel back to ideal operating levels.
