Flexible Heat Conductors for Efficient Thermal Transfer
A standard cooling solution for Interscale cases
Flexible Heat Conductors (FHCs) were introduced by nVent Schroff to help ensure effective thermal transfer for conduction cooling. This new development is filed as a patent. Made from heat dissipating metal, FHCs are particularly well-suited for small single-board systems and larger systems that cannot be air-cooled with active fans for or perforated ventilation designs. Pentair’s FHCs also provide the necessary heat dissipation for embedded systems, which must be completely enclosed due to Ingress Protection requirements unique to the deployment setting.
The new heat conductors have been integrated into the nVent Schroff Interscale range of cases as a standard cooling solution. These cases for non-standardized PCBs include a number of features including easy assembly and versatility with a wide range of standard sizes and variable extension options. They comply with the new IEC 60297-3-109 standard, which Pentair helped to create, and which defines the dimensions and physical features of the chassis and connected PCBs for embedded computing devices. The cases are used in a variety of applications including machine control systems, medical technology, transport, aerospace and telecommunications.
