Stop electronic control downtime due to heat, dirt and moisture

EXAIR Cabinet Cooler® Systems are a low cost, easy to install, maintenance free way to cool and purge electronic control panels. EXAIR Cabinet Coolers incorporate a vortex tube that produces cold air from ordinary compressed air - with no moving parts. The compact Cabinet Cooler can be installed in minutes through a standard electrical knockout. NEMA 12, 4, and 4X (IP54 and IP66) Cabinet Coolers that match the NEMA rating of the enclosure are available in many cooling capacities for large and small control panels. NEMA 12 Cabinet Coolers are ideal for general industrial environments where no liquids or corrosives are present. NEMA 4 Cabinet Coolers incorporate a low pressure relief valve for both the vortex tube and cabinet air exhaust. This valve closes and seals when the cooler is not operating to maintain the integrity of a NEMA 4 enclosure. NEMA 4X Cabinet Coolers offer the same protection as NEMA 4 but are constructed of stainless steel for food service and corrosive environments.
