Issue:
When is it recommended to have external temperature control for the storage of Panelboards?

Product Line:
Panelboards

Environment:
Storage

Cause:
Condensation / Overheating

Resolution:
Equipment should be stored in an ambient of 10 - 40 degrees Celsius (50 - 104 degrees Fahrenheit). This means that any temperature below 10 degrees C will dictate the need for panelboard space heaters (with thermostat), and any temperature above 40 degrees C would require the equipment to be placed into a temperature controlled space to ensure the 40 degree C maximum temperature is not exceeded.
