How to check if Cooling Output inside Enclosures is Sufficient

How to check if Cooling Output inside Enclosures is Sufficient

By Jason Swann, Rittal Product Manager for Climate

Manufacturing automation systems are delicate and very expensive pieces of kit, which perform vital functions for the businesses they serve. 

The enclosures that protect them must have strictly controlled internal environments with interior temperatures that are carefully maintained within a few degrees.  If not, the impact can be harmful to the inverter drives, power supplies, contactors, PLCs and other electrical and electronic components operating within them.  This requires careful control of the climate within the enclosure.

It’s time to tackle charging safety

plug socket

Whether it’s on a train, in a café or a hotel lobby – whatever the location, the number of people that want to charge their smartphone on the go is growing. In fact, our recent research found that 30% of UK adults charge their phone in a public place at least once a month, while 58% would like to see more public buildings feature USB charging outlets.

Installing USB charging outlets is not just a way to meet the ever-changing demands of the public, they can also make charging smartphones and tablets a significantly safer process.

Unaware but not immune to risk

5 simple tips to make your office safer

make your office safer

How safe your building is, is paramount for all businesses. From large corporations to small family businesses, there is much to consider when deciding what equipment and measures are required for the safety of the office. 

 

Whether it is regularly testing office equipment to ensure they are in a safe and useable condition or establishing company security processes for personnel in the workplace, having too many measures would be better than not having enough. But this comes with the risk of not allowing staff to move freely in the office and be comfortable and it can be expensive to maintain.
