In his feature article on "The Need for an Optimized Cooling Setpoint," Abhishek Gupta of Hoffman, Pentair explained that when considering how to properly cool electronics in industrial applications, you must determine an optimized cooling setpoint. In this brief web exclusive, he offers four advantages of an optimal temperature setpoint.

  1. A lower operating cost of the system. Air conditioning runs for a shorter duration to meet the heat load.
  2. More efficient. The unit draws less overall watts due to less operation time.
  3. Longer operating life. Low operating hours extend the durable life of the product.
  4. Mitigates condensation problems. Condensation can lead to premature failures.
