Condensation Reduction in Security Cameras

Protective Vents for Outdoor Electronics

FEBRUARY 2015 // This study compares the performance of two IP66-compliant methods for reducing condensation in security camera housings. The GORE® Protective Vent was much more effective than desiccant at dissipating moisture, preventing seal failure and subsequent ingress of liquids.

Reliability in Network Infrastructure

Protective Vents for Outdoor Electronics

FEBRUARY 2014 // After up to 11 years in the field, 29 tower-mounted amplifiers and combiners with GORE® Vents were inspected and integrity-tested. 100% of the units exceeded recommended airflow and 90% passed the IPX7 immersion test, demonstrating the vents’ exceptional reliability.

Reliability Testing of GORE® Protective Vents in Telecommunication Enclosures

Protective Vents for Outdoor Electronics

MAY 2013 // Both vented and non-vented IP67 telecommunications enclosures were tested for reliability after exposure to real-world challenges: sudden temperature changes, temperature changes with concurrent water exposure, and repeated cycles of hot/cold and wet/dry conditions.

Reliability Testing of GORE® Protective Vents in LED Luminaires

Protective Vents for Outdoor Electronics

JANUARY 2013 // This 12-month test evaluates the effects of changes in temperature, pressure and humidity on two IP66-rated outdoor LED luminaires – one with a GORE® Vent, one sealed. Results show that venting, to equalize internal pressures, improves luminaire reliability.

Temperature Cycling Tests to Evaluate Product Life

Protective Vents for Outdoor Electronics

JULY 2014 // These tests of vented and non-vented IP66-rated junction boxes demonstrate that GORE® Vents can help lengthen solar equipment service life, because they preserve seal integrity, block liquids and contaminants, and effectively diffuse water vapor to minimize condensation.
