Ready for the summer?
Published:  18 August, 2017

Rittal.jpgRITTAL is warning users of manufacturing automation systems to check that they are prepared for the summer heat and, if necessary, arrange for an inspection of their equipment to check the level of risk and says high temperatures are the most common cause of sensitive electrical and electronic components tripping or even failing.

Jason Swann, Rittal’s product manager for climate advises: “Electrical equipment generates lots of heat. Add to this the ambient heat from the rising summer temperatures and your enclosure will start to reach a critical point of overheating without sufficiecnt cooling. What would you do if the equipment that manages your production line - your PLCs, drives and controls - failed due to inadequate or inappropriate cooling? Can you afford to take the risk.”
