Most applications require installation in an industrial enclosure to reduce the effects of electrical interference and environmental exposure. Locate your device as far as possible from any power lines, load lines, and other sources of electrical noise, such as hard-contact switches, relays, and AC motor drives.
This product is intended for the use in an industrial environment.
Safety considerations are an important element of proper system installation. Actively thinking about the safety of yourself and others, as well as the condition of your equipment, is of primary importance.
Preventing Excessive Heat
For most applications, normal convective cooling keeps the device within the specified operating range. Ensure that the specified temperature range is maintained. Proper spacing of components within an enclosure is usually sufficient for heat dissipation. Please take into consideration that in some applications other equipment inside or outside of the enclosure may produce a substantial heat amount. In this case, place blower fans inside the enclosure to assist in air circulation and reduce “hot spots” near the device. Additional cooling provisions might be necessary when high ambient temperatures are encountered.
Do not bring in unfiltered outside air. Place the device in an enclosure to protect it from a corrosive atmosphere. Harmful contaminants or dirt could cause improper operation or damage to the components. In extreme cases, you may need to use air conditioning for protecting the device against the heat build-up within the enclosure.
