QuestionsI’m in the process of selecting an electrical enclosure for use in a data centre but I’m concerned about the risk of condensation. Can your enclosures effectively handle moisture-related challenges?

Dear Patricio,

I understand your concern regarding the potential for condensation within an enclosure in a data centre environment. This issue occurs due to the pressure differential created by a contrast in temperatures between the interior and exterior of the enclosure. This can cause air to be drawn into the enclosure, potentially leading to internal condensation.

Selecting the right enclosure to mitigate this issue, without compromising on other essential factors such as heat dissipation, robustness and protection from contaminants, is vital.

At Spelsberg, the protection of components within our enclosures is our priority us. To ensure condensation and moisture-related issues are effectively addressed, every product undergoes stringent testing. You can learn more about this at: https://www.spelsberg.co.uk/media/redaktion/Service/Downloads/catalogue/EN/VK17147_UL_Certification.pdf.

Based on your needs, I’d highly recommend our AK Air range. These enclosures come equipped with an integrated ventilation system designed to combat moisture accumulation. Their innovative design means that despite having two vents at the rear, they ensure an IP 65 protection level, seamlessly combining efficient air transfer with superior protection against foreign contaminants.

The versatile design allows for various mounting options, including three-point keyhole and external installation lugs, all while preserving the enclosure’s IP 65 rating and making them apt for installations in data centres. To learn more about the AK Air product range, please head to: https://www.spelsberg.co.uk/onepager/ak-the-distribution-board/.
If you require any additional enclosure information for your data centre requirements, please feel free to send me a private message and I’d be happy to discuss with you the specific needs that your enclosure needs to meet.

Kind regards,

Chris
