Without proper cooling, electrical cabinets can become like ovens. To effectively protect the sensitive electronics within the cabinets, you must overcome the heat radiating from the equipment in the panel.
Using computational software and additive manufacturing to design, test and manufacture heat exchangers for electronics cooling demonstrates how heat sinks can be optimized, thereby improving the performance of consumer electronics.
Just like a car’s radiator keeps its engine from overheating, the heat associated with the processing of electricity must be reduced significantly in order for consumer electronic devices like computers, televisions and smartphones to function properly.
Advanced Thermal Solutions (ATS) is providing design engineering services for companies doing business with electronic components distributor Digi-Key Electronics through its design services provider network.
When you make an equipment purchase, what — besides price, of course — influences what you buy and from whom? We’d all like to think that our buying choices, large and small, are based on good research and a judicious weighing of the costs and benefits of each option.
When placed on top of a component that requires cooling, cold plates absorb and dissipate the heat from the component to the heat transfer fluid. Cold plates are finding wide use in electronics cooling applications in many process industries.
Constructed with a fin design with an optimized aspect ratio, the liquid cold plates offer improved thermal performance, says the manufacturer. The cold plates are lightweight and compatible with industry-accepted coolants.
Altair acquired Michigan-based TES International’s technology, intellectual property and other assets. TES services the electronics cooling market by providing cross-industry software solutions for thermal design and packaging, general heat transfer, and stress and vibration analysis.
