The Metromatics Rugged Anti-Condensation Heater is designed to protect delicate and expensive Military Electronic Equipment housed in Electronic Enclosures from condensation and moisture damage.

It is a 2RU 19” Rackmountable Rugged Product that is built to military shock and vibration standards; MIL-STD-901D & MIL-STD-167.  With Non Hexavalent Corrosion Treatment & Powdercoating, it is available in two models; 115VAC, 60Hz or 230VAC, 50Hz.

The Removal of Condensation from the Electronic Enclosure is achieved through the 250W of thermostat controlled convection (Anti-Condensation Heater).

The Anti Condensation Heater eliminates the creation of water vapour inside the enclosure by keeping the internal temperature above the dew point.  Firstly, Moisture is the formation of condensate during low temperature and/or high humidity conditions.  Secondly, removal of condensation is achieved via thermostat-controlled convection.  However, it may also provide protection against frost in extreme low temperature conditions.
