I had the pleasure of speaking with the Maintenance Manager at a manufacturing plant for a global automotive supplier earlier this week. They have a whole factory floor full of machinery that operates from PLC controls. The space is not climate controlled, and the temperature broke 100°F the day before. This triggered some high temperature warnings on several control panels, but that was the worst thing that happened…luckily.
It should go without saying that the automotive industry is a big deal in the United States…maybe even a bigger deal here in the Middle Atlantic region, and a HUGE deal for those of us within a few hour’s drive of Detroit, Michigan…the home of the Big Three. Disruptions in their supply chains can affect not only the final production of automobiles, but also other suppliers, vendors, and service providers in separate “links” of that chain. So, if my caller has a breakdown and can’t ship parts, many other suppliers’ lines may be slowed or stopped, because if Detroit can’t make cars without one supplier’s parts right now, they won’t need the others’ parts right now either. That means reliability is paramount.
This is a “textbook” situation for EXAIR Cabinet Cooler Systems. They’re installed in minutes, have no moving parts, and require only a supply of compressed air for operation. If that air is clean & dry, they’ll operate darn near indefinitely, maintenance free. Thermostat Control turns them off & on as needed. I’ve talked to more than a few users who were (pleasantly) surprised when a Cabinet Cooler System activated on the first hot day in the spring, after not seeing it come on at all, after that last hot day near the end of the previous summer.
Back to the situation at hand – the Maintenance Manager had gathered Sizing Guide data for a couple of enclosures. You can submit it through our website, or email it in, but it only takes a minute; we do it over the phone all the time. So I did, and quoted the appropriate Cabinet Cooler Systems, which were ordered soon after. They were installed the next day, with a promise of more to come.
As if quick, easy, and reliable heat protection for sensitive and critical electronics isn’t enough, we’re sweetening the pot this summer: order any EXAIR CAbinet Cooler System by July 31, 2018, and we will include a FREE AC Sensor, suitable for testing breakers, receptacles, switches, fuses, junction boxes, power cords – if it’s got (or should) have AC voltage going through it, the AC Sensor will light up and sound off (or not) to let you know for sure.
If you have electrical or electronic equipment enclosures that need heat protection, EXAIR has the solution. Call me.
