How Do Your Electronics Survive in Harsh Environments?
GORE® Vents reliably protect sensitive electronics from dirt, water, heat and humidity, to keep material handling, construction and agricultural equipment performing reliably in the harshest operating conditions.
Increase Equipment Life Expectancy and Performance Reliability
GORE Protective Vents can extend the reliability and longevity of electronic enclosures in the most challenging heavy-duty equipment applications.
When customers invest in heavy-duty equipment, they expect exceptional durability and reliable performance. Yet the harsh operating environments can threaten the performance and life expectancy of sensitive electronics, causing reliability problems and expensive warranty claims.
GORE Protective Vents provide the optimal combination of breathability and barrier protection to enhance the survival of electronic components in the most demanding applications. In heavy-duty construction, agricultural or material handling equipment, GORE® Vents reliably protect against dirt, dust, condensation, humidity and water.
Vents from Gore can extend the service life of electronics in heavy-duty equipment, reducing maintenance costs, warranty claims and customer frustrations, because they:
- rapidly equalize housing pressures, to avert premature seal failure
- prevent ingress of moisture, wind-driven rain and particulates and other contaminants
- reduce condensation that can corrode sensitive electronics
- eliminate the need for “ruggedized” housings, reducing costs and weight
- provide a compact, venting structure that is easily installed and integrated
» GORE® Protective Vents can help your vented electronics enclosure for heavy duty equipment meet IP and NEMA protection standards. Learn more.
Electronic enclosures that power or control outdoor heavy-duty equipment are vulnerable to a wide range of environmental hazards — any of which can affect the performance, reliability and life expectancy of the sensitive electronics within.
Problems for Outdoor Electronics in Heavy-Duty Applications:
GORE® Vents protects seals from stress by continuously equalizing over-pressures or vacuums within the outdoor enclosure box.
Rapid, extreme or recurring changes in ambient conditions cause over-pressures or vacuums to form within sealed outdoor electronics enclosures. These pressure differentials can occur due to:
- Sudden temperature changes (a thunderstorm on a hot sunny day).
- Altitude changes (when equipment is in transit).
- Repetitive heating/cooling cycles of internal components.
If these over-pressures or vacuums cannot be dissipated, they will place continued stress on housing seals. Over time, these seals can fail and allow moisture, dust, dirt and other contaminants to be drawn inside the sealed enclosure box, damaging the electrical and electronic components.
Moisture can also get inside an outdoor electrical box by diffusion — the process by which vapor moves by natural molecular motion through the walls of a polymer enclosure. When water vapor enters a sealed enclosure and has no way to escape, it will condense to a liquid state. For example, condensation trapped inside an electrical control panel enclosure for heavy duty equipment could corrode sensitive electronics and battery contacts. Just one more reason why it’s essential to have properly-vented electronics enclosures for heavy-duty equipment.
GORE PROTECTS HEAVY-DUTY EQUIPMENT’S VENTED ELECTRONICS ENCLOSURES:
During normal operation and recharging cycles, batteries can generate heat and emit hydrogen or other gases. This can create a hazardous, or even explosive, situation. GORE Protective Vents effectively dissipate hazardous gas molecule buildups within battery boxes. By continuously equalizing pressures inside and outside the battery enclosure box, they reduce explosion hazards, while maintaining an effective barrier to liquids and particulates.
GORE SOLUTIONS: VENTED ELECTRONICS ENCLOSURES FOR HEAVY-DUTY EQUIPMENT
|GORE Vents reliably protect electronic systems in earth moving equipment, in road construction equipment, and in equipment for the mining industry.|
|Material Handling Equipment|
|In cranes, in forklifts and other warehouse equipment, GORE Protective Vents can keep the electronic components operating at peak performance.|
|An investment in tractors, harvesting and cultivating equipment, or forestry equipment is protected for longer when GORE Vents extend the life expectancy of outdoor electronics.|
As the industry incorporates more electrification and automation, it will be even more essential to protect the electronics that keep construction, agricultural and material-handling equipment operating safely, reliably and efficiently. GORE Protective Vents offer a robust, proven solution!
They reliably provide heavy-duty equipment ventilation and ingress protection in all types of enclosures, including electrical control panel enclosures, directional register covers, junction-box venting and battery enclosure boxes, to name just a few. Ask us how we can help with your application!
The portfolio of Gore’s industrial vents for heavy-duty equipment encompasses a wide range of performance characteristics to meet diverse application needs: from waterproof vent caps to vents that enable a reliable pressure relief valve or high-flow air-vent valve.
