Get Ready for Summer! 3 Steps to Prepare Your Enclosure Cooling Units for the Stress of the Summer Heat
Don’t Wait Until it’s Too Late!
With the summer heat just around the corner we want to help you prepare your electronics enclosure cooling units to stay up and running.
We put this Preventative Maintenance Video together to help you get ready.
Avoid critical component failures by following these 3 simple steps to ensure your enclosure cooling units stay up and runing all summer.
STEP 1: Make Sure Your Condenser Coils are Clean
The condenser coils are one of the most important components of your Cooling Unit, they ensure the reliable, cost efficient and long-term operation of your unit. When dirt, dust or debris builds up on your condenser coils, it can have a major negative effect on the performance of your cooling unit leading to increased run time and energy consumption.
STEP 2: Check Your Fan Motors and Inside/Outside Electrical Components
In order to prevent failure, the cooling unit’s fan motor and fan blades need to be inspected to determine wear and damage. All the electrical components in the control box also need to be checked to make sure all connections aren’t damaged or loose.
STEP 3: Set Your Unit to the Recommended Proper Temperature
Pfannenberg sets the dip-switches on the control board to 95°F/35°C in the factory, and recommends that the dip switch settings are not altered.
Having the dip-switch temperature set to a lower point can cause damage not only to the cooling unit, but to the enclosure as well. Changing the set point can cause the cooling unit to run excessively, possibly causing damage to the compressor and other components. It can also cause the enclosure to produce condensate, possibly damaging electrical components inside the cabinet.
