The cooling unit is intended to be used as a complementary accessory to larger industrial equipment. The unit is used where heat needs to be dissipated from electrical control cabinets or similar enclosures in order to protect heat sensitive components. It is not intended for household use. The unit has two completely separate air circuits which ensure that the clean cabinet air does not come into contact with the ambient air which may well be dirty or polluted. Enclosure cooling units can dissipate large quantities of heat from sealed enclosures such as electrical enclosures into the ambient air and at the same time reduce the cabinet internal temperature to below that of the ambient air. The unit can function without problems in extreme ambient conditions (e.g. dusty and oily air) with a standard operating temperature ranging between +10°C and +55°C. Units can be ordered with an additional electrical cabinet heater. For the cooling capacities and evironmental ratings please refer to the type plate data.

Functional Principle

The cooling unit for enclosures works on the basis of a refrigeration circuit consisting of four main components: compressor (1), evaporator (2), condenser (3), and expansion device (4). The circuit is hermetically sealed and R134a refrigerant circulates inside it (R134a is chlorine free and has an Ozone Destruction Potential [ODP] of 0 and a Global Warming Potential [GWP] of 1430). The compressor compresses the refrigerant (thus taking it to high pressure and high temperature), and pushes it through the condenser, where it is cooled by ambient air thus passing from the gas to the liquid state. At the liquid state it then passes through the capillary pipe being a much lower pressure the refrigerant arrived to the evaporator where it absorbs the necessary heat to change from liquid to gas state. The gas is then drawn back into the compressor completing the cycle.

Condensation management
In environments with humidity and low internal enclosure temperatures, condensation may form on the evaporator coil. Standard cooling units 43XXX0XXX have a drain socket towards the bottom of the unit for connection of the drain pipe. Cooling units 43XXX1XX include an internal condensate evaporator based on self-regulating PTC cartridges. Condensate is drained to an internal recipient where it evaporates when in contact with the cartridge surface. Resulting steam is directed towards the condenser. The PTC heater cartridge is permanently connected. The recipient has an overflow socket at the bottom of the unit, for which a drain pipe is supplied.

The power supply rating on unit rating plate must comply with mains rating.
Always disconnect the power supply before opening the unit.

The heat load to be dissipated from enclosure should not exceed specific cooling output of the unit at any condition. At cooling unit selection always cater for a safety margin of at least 15% extra cooling output in the worst conditions.
Ensure that flows of air leaving and entering the cooling unit, internal and external, are not obstructed. It must also be ensured in accordance with UL, that the air outlet is not blowing air directly at an equipment operator. Should this be the case a barrier or duct shall be provided to redirect the airflow.
Cooling unit enclosure air suction hole must be installed in the highest possible point. When installing the unit on a door ensure it can take the weight.

Before drilling the enclosure ensure the fixing elements and couplings will not interfere with the equipment inside the enclosure itself. Disconnect power before starting any work inside the enclosure. Following this 1:1 Scale Drilling Template drill the holes and make the required cuts on the enclosure. This template may have been affected by storage conditions, please check this template by verifying values of the largest dimensions before drilling. Fit the sealing strip on the cooling unit on the side connected to the enclosure and follow the installation diagram.

Note: In case of 19″ rack mounted units please ignore the above mounting instructions.

Electrical Connection

High electric voltage present. Installation, maintenance, cleaning and any other work must be carried out by qualified personnel only. The personnel must ensure that for the duration of this work the unit and the cabinet are disconnected from the electrical supply and protected against unauthorised/accidental reconnection.
Ensure that the unit and the enclosure are switched off before opening the unit. While servicing and inspecting the unit, ensure that the necessary precautions are taken against the unit been switched back on accidentally.All wiring for unit installation must be done following the applicable national and regional regulations, as well as the provisions of the responsible power supply company.


The display shows the temperature in the range of -50°C to +150°C (-58°F to +302°F). The temperature is displayed with resolution of tenths between -19.9°C and +99.9°C (-3.8°F to +211.8°F). During programming, it shows the codes and values of the parameters. The display also shows icons according to occurring events.

Taking into Operation

Attention! The unit can be damaged by lack of lubricant. To ensure that the compressor is adequately lubricated the oil, which has been displaced during transport, must be allowed to flow back into it. The unit must therefore be allowed to stand for at least 30 min. before being connected to the mains and taken into operation. The unit/system must be protected with a MCB Type D or K. Upon connection the internal fan will start working. If the temperature inside the enclosure is higher than the set value of the controller both the compressor and external air fan start working. Once the air inside the enclosure reaches the set temperature the compressor and external fan will stop.

The hysteresis is 3K, the minimum ON-time is 4 minutes, the minimum OFF-time is 3 minutes, for units with a cooling capacity of more than 1 kW is it usually 7 minutes.

The unit is pre-set at 35°C, which is suitable for most of the electronic devices.

Maintenance & Cleaning

Always switch power supply off before starting any maintenance on the unit.

The cooling unit is generally maintenance-free and can be operated without filters in most environments. For units with filters these should be checked, cleaned and if necessary replaced on a regular basis. In addition the unit should have regular functional tests (approx. every 2,000 hours depending on the grade of ambient pollution).

The unit contains R134a refrigerant and small quantities of lubricating oil. Replacement, repairs, and final disposal must be done according to the regulations of each country for these substances.

Transport & Storage

Malfunction due to transport damage
On delivery the carton box containing the unit must be examined for signs of transport damage. Any transport damage to the carton box could indicate that the unit itself has been damaged in transit which in the worst case could mean that the unit will not function. The unit can only be stored in locations which meet the following conditions:

  • temperature range: – 40°C to + 70°C
  • Relative humidity (at 25°C): max. 95 %

Returning the unit
To avoid transport damage the unit should be returned in the original packing or in a packing case and must be strapped to a pallet. If the unit cannot be returned in the original packing please ensure that:

  • A space of at least 30 mm. must be maintained at all points between the unit and the external packing.
  • The unit must be shipped in the same position as it was mounted.
  • The unit must be protected by shock resistant padding (hard foam corner pieces, strips or cardboard corner pieces).
