Sarel, a division of Schneider Electric, has launched Vision CD, a free, interactive CD designed to assist installation or design engineers specify an enclosure across several industry sectors.
Features on the CD include thermal management software, CAD drawings, an estimating tool and product details. The thermal management software is said to help users understand and compensate for heat rise and condensation in electrical and electronic packaging.
“It isn’t uncommon for badly specified enclosures to contain a couple of inches of water as the result of condensation. In such situations, correct specification can result in big maintenance savings later in the project,” said Adrian Walker, business development manager of Sarel.
“Essentially, any application where electrical equipment that consumes power can be found in the same enclosure as electronic components requires some degree of thermal compensation,” continued Walker. “I have known us to resolve quite serious client problems that have had as their root the fact that electronic equipment doesn’t get on with either elevated operating temperatures or condensation. The Vision CD will pass on some of this common sense knowledge.”
Sarel says that the estimating tool on the CD is simple to update via the Internet so the pricing information and contact details remain current.
Copies of the CD can be requested via the Sarel Web site or by contacting Sarel on 01793 837430.
