Thermoregulation

How humid is it?

Temperature control in panel cabinets is important. Too hot or too cold can shorten the life of electrical and electronic equipment creating downtime and costly repairs. Most often a simple filter fan and/or heater with a thermostat is sufficient to balance temperature in the cabinet.

We’ve experienced it – that “wet blanket” feeling when you step outside in the morning or the car door opens welcoming in humid air. The air temperature can be quite low, but that humidity is ever present.

But what to do with that added humid air. Climate plays a large part in panel design and what works in New York may not be the right approach in Texas. Air conditioning is a possibility but due to panel size, budget, or other factors it may not be effective. You cannot ignore it. If left unchecked your closed panel may have a little ‘rain’ over the components.

So how can we balance this?

 

By sensing not only temperature but also relative humidity. This way we can control fan, panel heater or fan assisted panel heaters in various conditions.

Perhaps the temperature is not warm enough to turn the fan on, however considering the relative humidity we fall below the dew point and now need a panel heater to control condensation.

Control – 7T.51 Thermo-hygrostat

 

A small form factor at 17.5 mm width, ready to mount on DIN rail. The 10 A, 110 – 240 V AC/DC supply voltage allows wide design integration with a single part number. The easy to use dials offer 4 different sensing options covering various environmental needs.

Functions 7T.51

 

HT: RH > RHset OR Tamb > Tset

Power is permanently applied to the thermo-hygrostat.
The contact 13-14 closes  if the ambient humidity (RH) is > of set humidity (RHset) OR if the ambient temperature (Tamb)  is > of set temperature (Tset).

When contact is close, LED is ON

 

TH: RH > RHset OR Tamb < Tset

Power is permanently applied to the thermo-hygrostat.

The contact 13-14 closes if the ambient humidity (RH) is > of set humidity (RHset) OR if the ambient temperature (Tamb) is < of set temperature (Tset).

When contact is close, LED is ON

 

HL: RH < RHset

Power is permanently applied to the thermo-hygrostat.

The contact 13-14 closes if the ambient humidity (RH) is < of set humidity (RHset)

When contact is close, LED is ON

 

 

HM: RH > RHset 

Power is permanently applied to the thermo-hygrostat.

The contact 13-14 closes if the ambient humidity (RH) is > of set humidity (RHset)

When contact is close, LED is ON

Now what does the 7T.51 control?

From the above function charts, designers have flexibility with Finder’s 7T.51 to select from 4 different conditions in one package.

  • Humidity greater than set point
  • Humidity less than set point
  • Humidity greater than OR temp greater than set point
  • Humidity greater than OR temp less than set point

 

Based on the function, the output will control various Finder thermo-regulation products to help get the job done.
