Schneider Electric - ClimaSys: prevent downtime and contribute to a better climate

Downtime is often caused by overheating. With good cabinet climate control, you can prevent this. In addition, good climate control ensures a sustainable solution. It has been shown that components last up to two times longer at the right operating temperature.

Prevention of failures 

Ensuring continuity and increasing productivity are often goals of factories. This comes down to preventing breakdowns that can lead to downtime. Proper climate control within the cabinet is essential here. If components overheat, this can lead to downtime or shortened service life. Downtime is often caused by overheating. You can prevent this with proper temperature management. Want to make the right choices when it comes to climate control?


Did you know that with proper climate control, you are doing your part to ensure sustainability? Components have been shown to last up to two times longer at the right operating temperature. If certain components such as a variable speed drive become 10 degrees Celsius too hot then the service life can be halved. By extending the service life of costly components, you are contributing to the climate and to your own wallet.

Polluted environments 

In certain industrial segments, you often have to deal with polluted environments. With an air to air exchanger, Schneider Electric ensures that contaminated air does not enter the cabinet and cannot cause damage. With a calculation in ProClima, they can select the right cooling system.

ClimaSys Smart Ventilation System 

When an enclosure is in a greasy or dusty environment, filters can become clogged. This causes reduced ventilation with a risk of overheating. To prevent this, Schneider Smart ventilation CSVS fans can be installed with an LED indicator and a dry contact to the PLC. This allows you to see when a filter mat is clogged and replace it in time.

Condensation and dew point measurement 

One of the reasons for corrosion is condensation. In case of corrosion, a dew point measurement can be done with a data logger. With a heating mat, condensation can be kept outside the cabinet. In addition, the IP value can be checked, this is part of a Quick Scan.

Quick scan 

In practice, sometimes extensions are made or there are things that were not taken into account in the design. For example, heat dissipation may be higher than expected or the cabinet arrangement may be different than planned. Schneider's Sales Specialists can do a quick scan on site to identify possible causes of failure due to overheating.

    Time to Adjust
    Electric motors are major consumers in industry when it comes to energy consumption. As much as 70% of the electricity produced goes to electrically driven systems. For heavy industries, this can be as much as 90%. Since 2009, the EU has been setting minimum energy efficiency requirements for new electric motors from 0.75 to 375 kW with the Ecodesign Directive 640/2009 in order to encourage manufacturers to bring more energy-efficient products to market.

    Tight connection for signal cables
    For years, itsme has supplied signal cables to Krohne Altometer, producer of flow meters for the process industry, among other things. Cut to size and delivered on time, although the latter is a challenge these days due to delivery problems in global supply chains. "In itsme we have a good party, which thinks along and helps where it can. Just a very reliable supplier, who says what they do and does what they say."

    HAK to LED
    Lighting is an important aspect of sustainability. Next year the production of fluorescent lamps will stop and the switch to energy-efficient LED lighting will become really urgent. Some companies have yet to start, others have been working on it for years. Like food company HAK, which has been carrying out replacement projects in cooperation with lighting expert itsme for years. Here too, HAK's brand values of health and sustainability are in the spotlight. HAK, known for its Dutch vegetables, has grown from a traditional cannery for the Benelux to a branded vegetable food company for Northwest Europe. In the North Brabant town of Giessen, 150 employees annually produce millions of the well-known glass jars and, for several years now, stand-up pouches. "Because we depend on nature, our biggest challenge is to get the product in good quality into the jars and bags," says Henk de Graaf, technical project leader and industrial automation engineer. "We are dealing with a seasonal product that depends on weather conditions and must be harvested and processed at the right time." The production process is highly automated and recent investments include energy and water savings.
