Enclosure Ventilation

Ventilation for power supply and controller enclosures is essential in the Australian summer.


 

DS-VH-60These vents (DS-VH-60 available from Switches Plus) require a hole cutout of 62.5mm.

These vents appear to be the same style as the ones organised in an ACL group buy in 2014.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

60mm_vent_fanA 60mm fan suits it well (FAN6010C5L for example, available from WES Components).

Secure it to the back of the vent using #4 self tapping screws.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

90mm_flangeAnother possibility is this 90mm rainwater fitting from Bunnings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

90mm_insect_screenThis insect screen (also from Bunnings) fits right onto it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


50mm_vent_cowlThis 50mm vent cowl (again, from Bunnings) may also work when used with a suitable flange.
