Installation Recommendations

Installation recommendations

Mounting in an enclosure

Follow the mounting recommendations on the opposite page. To ensure proper air circulation in the drive: Install ventilation grilles Ensure that there is sufficient ventilation. If there is not, install a forced ventilation unit with a filter. The openings and/or fans must provide a flow rate at least equal to that of the drive fans (see below). Use special filters with IP 54 protection Remove the protective cover from the top of the drive

Metal dust/damp proof wall-mounted or floor-standing enclosure (IP 54 protection)

The drive must be mounted in a dust and damp proof enclosure in certain environmental conditions: dust, corrosive gases, high humidity with risk of condensation and dripping water, splashing liquid, etc. This enables the drive to be used in an enclosure where the maximum internal temperature can reach 122 F (50C).

Calculating the dimensions of the enclosure

Maximum thermal resistance Rth (C/W) q =maximumtemperatureinsidetheenclosurein C q e=maximumexternaltemperaturein C P = total power dissipated in the enclosure in W Power dissipated by drive: see page 32. Add the power dissipated by the other components of the device. Useful heat exchange area of enclosure S (m


) (sides + top + front panel if wall-mounted) K = thermal resistance per m


of the enclosure For metal enclosures: K = 0.12 with internal fan K = 0.15 without fan Note: Do not use insulated enclosures, as they have a poor level of conductivity.
