Proving humidity a NON-ISSUE
when applying free cooling
at Telecom base stations

We are frequently asked if free cooling can be used in regions with high relative humidity without damaging the enclosed equipment. The answer is yes.

Free cooling at Telecom sites in humid regions...that sounds kind of risky, right - so why even try? Because free cooling is the most energy-efficient cooling method and the highest savings generator within electronics cooling. And the best thing is: you don't have to worry about high relative humidity.

Why did we conduct this study?

Most Telecom operators have this in common: they want the most energy-efficient site cooling possible. There is really just one answer to that: Free cooling. But as efficient as this technology is, it's also connected with a concern of damaging the enclosed equipment, when installed in humid surroundings.

This concern is based on an assumption that supplying humid, outdoor air to your shelter or enclosure will create too high humidity levels inside the application. The concern is understandable, but unnecessary. Free cooling can in fact be applied in spite of high relative humidity of the ambient air and we would like to prove it.  

Wait, there's a part 2...

Find out why we are so confident about using free cooling with air conditioning in highly humid regions.
