For Use In Cabinets, Racks, and Other Enclosures
Manufacturer: Cool Components
This is a basic but important item when it is desired to add automated control in a cabinet, enclosure, or rack. It is very easy to install as it simply plugs inline between the Cool Components power supply and fan units. It is also very small so it can be placed most anywhere.
The set point of this unit is 100 degrees Fahrenheit and can be used in cabinets, racks and enclosures for applications where the ambient temperature can rise quickly to temperatures of 100 degrees or more, or where placement of the unit must be in close proximity of heat generating components with average operating temperatures of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or more.
Product Usage Tips - While there are specifications that indicate a setpoint and degrees of variance, several factors and challenges exist when measuring ambient air temperature in an uncontrolled environment. Adding cooling and ventilation products add in a degree of control, but unless working with a sealed enclosure, it is still difficult to regulate and control the amount of pathways of airflow. For this reason, the temperature controllers may not seemingly operate in the range specified. If encountering an issue, the best course of action is to simply consider the placement of the controller. Very generally speaking, if the controller activates too early or does not turn off, back it away from components and put in a known airflow pathway. In other words, do not leave it resting on a component. If it is delayed in activating fans, then do the opposite, move it closer to the component and area where heat will accumulate.
