Vortec enclosure coolers for sensitive electronics

Friday January 04, 2019
January 4, 2019 – Vortec's line of enclosure coolers are designed to keep small electronic components such as resistors and switches cool in control panels, which the company says helps to protect sensors, solenoids, relays and PLCs.

A small mounting footprint allows use in confined spaces, and requires one-tenth the space of comparable air conditioner units. Various models are available, from 400 to 5,000 BTU, with air consumption from 8 SCFM to 70 SCFM. NEMA 12, NEMA 4, NEMA 4X, Zone 2 & 22 and Class I, II, III, Div 2 ratings.

Vortex tubes convert compressed air to a low-pressure cold-air source to keep electronic enclosures and panel components protected so they can operate. A compressed air stream enters the vortex tube, where it spins rapidly, splitting into hot and cold air streams. Most Vortec enclosure cooler models are thermostatically controlled to regulate cabinet temperatures within a specified range, and operate in ambient temperatures up to 175°F (80°C).
