When customers choose to undertake custom heating or cooling projects, they may not always make as many considerations as industry professionals.
We’ve all been there: working or playing for extended times on our cell phone when soon the battery begins to run down quickly and the device starts to heat up. Often the only solution is to turn off your phone or tablet and give it some time to cool down. Since the beginning of the technology, one of the biggest challenges for makers of compact electronic devices is keeping them cool.
This is especially true these days as mobile devices get more complex and powerful with larger HD screens and tons of applications running at once. As each new device hits the market, the pressure increases to enhance the effectiveness and lower the costs of cooling systems. So how does the electronics industry tackle the task of cooling compact electronic devices? Here are 4 areas to consider.
If you own a business be it big or small, you know how critical it is to keep costs down. Everyday is a battle to find new ways to save money all while keeping quality levels high. Often in the electronics industry, there are inventive and even hidden heating and cooling cost saving factors not instantly thought about. In this blog, we will cover the top five ways Pelonis believes can help electronics manufacturers improve their bottom-line.
The overheating of electronics is a topic that will run through most of this blog’s theme. It is one of the top “killers” of electronics thus manufacturers are constantly trying to find ways to eliminate or lessen its effects. One handy and simple way to reduce heat-related problems is with a heat pipe. Heat pipes are passive heat transfer systems with high effective thermal conductivity. Typically made with copper or aluminum, these sealed hollow tubes are lightweight and transfer heat away from machinery over long distances without any moving parts. Heat pipes, which use evaporative cooling technology, were first used by NASA but have found their way into modern electronics and computers. They are an easy and cost-effective heat transfer method.
