Vortex A/C

U.S. Metric

Product Overview

Vortex A/C Coolers incorporate the most up-to-date features into Vortec’s line of highly reliable, cost effective enclosure coolers. 

  • Sleek, modern design
  • Noise reduction of 78%, when compared to other vortex enclosure coolers
  • Energy use reduction through its integral mechanical thermostat
  • Quick and easy installation in about 5 minutes
  • Flexible installation:  top, side or front (door) mount

The Vortex A/C is available in 4 different cooling capacities, and ratings of NEMA 12, NEMA 4/4X and Hazardous Location Duty (Class 1, Div 2). 
All of Vortec’s Enclosure Coolers keep Electrical and Electronic Enclosures cool, clean and protected and are a low cost alternative to expensive, high maintenance air conditioners; and avoid contamination with dirty, humid air caused by fans.  
Today’s small, compact multi-function electronic controls, variable speed drives, servos and programmable logic controllers are extremely sensitive to heat and contamination.  Smaller cabinet sizes make temperature control difficult and prone to premature failures.  Excessive heat will cause digital displays to misread, controls to drift, and breakers to trip below rated loads.  The result is productivity lost due to machine or line shutdowns. 
Vortex Enclosure Coolers maintain a slight pressurization in the cabinet to keep electrical and electronic components clean and dry; and most are thermostatically controlled to maintain enclosure temperatures within a specified temperature range.  

Benefits

Vortex A/C Coolers

Control system reliability decreases as temperatures rise, doubling with each 18 deg F (10 deg C) increase in temperature. To keep production on track, the Vortex A/C enclosure coolers protect control cabinets in harsh environments up to 175 deg F.
