The good news is that we can help you remedy overtemperature warnings and shutdowns quickly and effectively. Of course, if you’re looking for hack of trick to cool Indramat motors, you’re in for some disappointing news.Shortcuts cause big problems
Don’t get crafty with dry ice or oscillating fans when you need to cool Indramat motors. While it’s possible to keep your servos cool with a fan, this approach ultimately ends up coming back to bite you.
A large box fan doesn’t cool your servos as effectively as a cooling system and climate control cabinet designed specifically to cool Indramat servos.
Your next issue is that fans tend to pull in dust, debris, grit, and grime, and spew these things in whichever direction the fan is facing. If this happens to be your servos, expect to see a thick film of gunk develop pretty quickly.
Climate control cabinets do more than just keep your servos cool. They regulate the temperature and help prevent issues with condensation and humidity as well.
When you put all of these things together – add a little bit of time – you’re facing an expensive list of repairs that could have been avoided by fixing your climate control cabinet.
Cool Indramat motors the right way.
High temperatures put a strain on your machines, but don’t panic if your fan or blower goes out. Don’t run out and buy a box fan, or throw open the cabinet door and start blowing on things to cool them off. That’s not going to cut it.
Cooling systems need to be working, and the climate control cabinet your servos are in needs to work. If both of these things are working properly, there’s no need for propped open doors and box fans set on high.
