People and machines all over the world depend on communication every day. And the data they generate is predicted to grow 10 times over the next five years. Vikinor helps keep automation and data networking systems up and running.
VIKINOR is pioneering a new era of equipment and smart energy-efficient solutions protecting control and automation system.
Most electronic control systems generate a substantial amount of heat during operation. This heat factor is intensified as electronic controls are made more compact, perform more functions and are placed in confined areas. Additional problems are encountered when the electronic process control system is located on-line in an industrial setting, rather than in a clean computer room.
When the electronics inside a control cabinet overheat, the machine can shut down due to tripped overloads and breakers or heat damage to the circuit boards.
The factory environment can be hostile to the point that performance and effective life of the electronic components are materially reduced or the control system fails completely. Ambient temperature might be excessively high, as that found in a steel mill. Moisture-laden air and airborne particulate matter might be present to adversely affect the electronic components, as in the paper manufacturing industry. Air conditioners and heat exchangers are designed to perform reliably under many of these harsh conditions and to provide the cooling and environmental protection required by sensitive electronic production control systems.
