Enclosure heaters are compact electric heaters designed specifically to maintain warmer temperatures within enclosures.
Installing a heater within an enclosure is recommended to protect electronic components from condensation, or when ambient temperatures must be maintained above a minimum value. Both functions are ideal in environments where ambient temperatures can drop rapidly, to save critical components from corrosion or freezing.
These small heaters often use a chimney-style design to distribute heat evenly, and many heaters are equipped with fans to assist natural convection. Enclosure thermostats, installed separately, control heaters and help maintain desired temperatures.
