RevPi modules have been developed for use in a control cabinet or housing. To operate them in accordance with their intended use in an industrial environment, you must note the following:
The protection type and protection class of the control cabinet or housing must comply with the standards provided for its intended purpose.
For installation in the control cabinet you will need a top-hat rail 35 x 7.5 mm (EN50022).
Install the top-hat rail horizontally in the control cabinet in accordance with the manufacturer”s instructions. Horizontal mounting is required to ensure that air can flow through the RevPi module from bottom to top and cool the electronics (chimney effect).
Make sure that there is sufficient distance between your module and other devices.
We recommend these minimum distances in order to guarantee sufficient air flow around the housing when the Revolution PI modules are installed on a top-hat rail.
- Attach the latching mechanism on the RevPI module to the top-hat rail.
- Press down the locking elements towards the RevPI module.
- Make sure that the RevPI module is firmly attached to the top-hat rail.
Your module could be damaged if temperatures are too high.
Make sure that the ambient temperature in the control cabinet is less than 55 °C.
