Rittal’s Thermal Management
Solutions white paper outlines
the impact of increasing temperatures on the lifespan of electronics housed in enclosures.
The average lifespan of semiconductors is reduced by roughly 50% every time the operating
temperature rises 20°F. / 10°C.
over its maximum operating temperature. The failure of a single electronic component
may lead to the complete shutdown of an entire production line. Resulting costs add up quickly.
Unfortunately high temperatures in enclosures can be
diffcult to control because electronic equipment such
as transformers, power distribution components, drives,
PLCs, and PCs all generate heat.
Air conditioners currently are the only practical stand-alone device in the market that can cool an environment below ambient temperature.
This white paper provides useful tips and techniques
on sizing an air conditioning unit for a specifc enclosure application, guidance on how to interpret an air
conditioner’s performance chart, tips on comparing
specifcations, and insights into the impact of humidity.
Rittal’s Top Therm roof-mounted and wall-mounted
unit options are described, as are various mounting options and controllers.
A feature/beneft comparison chart makes it easy to
evaluate the latest Top Therm units in contrast with earlier Rittal offerings and competitive A/C units.

New sucker rod couplings introduced
Newly introduced ToughMet 3
Sucker Rod Couplings are “de-
signed to maximize production out-
put and signifcantly reduce the costs
of artifcial lift operations.”
The patent pending designs are al-
ternatives to those made of conven-
tional materials. They cut frequency
of sucker rod couplings and produc-
ing tubing damage — the leading
cause of well failure. ToughMet 3 comprises a temper of
copper-nickel-tin spinodal alloy engineered by this frm
specifcally to resist mechanical wear, thread damage,
corrosion, or erosion. The couplings are nongalling to
prevent damage to production tubing.
