Schroff Dehumidifier Protects From Condensation

Schroff has launched a dehumidifier system that is designed to remove moisture from the air within an enclosure to protect electronic and electrical components from condensation. Manufactured by Hoffman, the H2OMIT system consists of a compact thermoelectric dehumidifier and a corrosion-resistant vent drain.

The dehumidifier unit features a high-impact ABS shell measuring 152 x 140 x 146mm and can be installed in the bottom of the enclosure or mounted on a DIN rail with a plastic hose connecting it to the vent drain.

The vent drain, which is available in stainless-steel and polyester versions, allows the accumulated water to escape and also functions as an air-pressure equaliser, reducing the likelihood of temperature-induced vacuums that could draw moisture into the enclosure.

Suitable for indoor and outdoor applications, the H2OMIT system helps to prevent corrosion-related problems such as overheating, arcing, sparking and short circuits. It is capable of removing approximately 230ml of moisture in 24 hours.
