Passive heatsinks and thermal simulations for ICS series electronics housings

Miniaturization brings with it ever-higher packing densities in electronics. This, in turn, requires efficient cooling. Heat dissipation in electronics housings is provided by individual heatsinks, as is the case with the ICS series DIN rail housing. These allow the ICS housings to be used in thermally demanding applications. As a device manufacturer, do you need thermal simulations to support you in designing the PCB layout? Contact us for more information.

Technical principles of electronics housings Solutions for DIN rail applications

Electronics housings are an elementary part of a device. They determine its appearance and protect the electronics from external influences. In addition, they enable assembly in superordinate units. Device manufacturers must therefore pay attention to many details, and not only in the design, but also in the choice of housing when it comes to materials and quality testing. This brochure provides you with all the details.
