How to Cool Electronics in Outdoor Environments

Sponsored by Sager Electronics

Today, people are exploring the effects of the environments on their electronic devices. More and more we see electronics designed for outdoor usage. From digital signage and outdoor cameras to EV chargers and telecom base stations, external devices are equipped with a plethora of electronic components. And those components need to be cooled down. Engineers are faced with these environmental considerations when selecting fans for their designs. They need to consider what the fan will be exposed to: humidity, dust, vibration, extreme temperature, oil rich environments, and EMI, to name a few. They may also need to be made accessible. This part of the design phase is more complex than typically thought. In fact, sometimes, cooling options become more of an afterthought in the design process.

In this video brief, we’ll chat with Ryan Murphy, Eastern Sales Engineer, Cooling Systems Division, Sanyo Denki and Vineet Barot, Technical Support Manager of Thermal, Sager Electronics about the different environmental considerations when choosing a fan, and how to protect from moisture, dust, oil, splashing, and extreme temperatures.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Evolution of the market
  • Why we need to incorporate fans into our electronics
  • Environmental factors
  • Why choose one type of cooling over another
  • Differentiating factors of fans
  • Case studies
