    Combating condensation in enclosure installations(02/02/2018)

    The recipe for condensation is simple: water vapour and fluctuating temperatures. In all but the most controlled of environments this means that electrical installations are at risk of water damage caused by condensation forming inside an enclosure. Of course, with proper planning and design it's possible to protect your connections, as Chris Lloyd, Managing Director of Spelsberg UK, explains.
