What is a control panel ventilation system?

Control Panel Ventilation systems serve an essential purpose within control panel climate control by ensuring that the interior of the panel is sufficiently cooled or heated and ventilated. Electrical panels will often heat up due to thermal loads. If they overheat, then the components and wires can get damaged. Such a situation can cause it to work inefficiently, stop working entirely or cause a hazardous situation. Therefore, ventilation systems can help by allowing air to flow through and cool down the interior.

Products that help in maintaining the ventilation and climate control include:

  • Fan Filter Units (Fan + Filters)
  • Exit Filters
  • Filter Cotton
  • Thermostat
  • Hygrostat
