Product Overview

Panel Guard Enclosure Coolers enhance the benefits of Vortex coolers for enclosure cooling by adding a mechanical thermostat for optimum temperature control without the need for wiring. Standard Vortex Coolers utilize an electrical thermostat with a solenoid, so installation must include running wiring from the cabinet to the Cooler.

Panel Guard models do not require wiring so installation is quick and easy and the energy use reduction advantages of using a thermostat are maintained. Panel Guard Enclosure Coolers are available in 3 different cooling capacities and are rated for NEMA 4 enclosures.

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.
