Instrument Panel Cooling Efficiency

Many a times we have seen the cooling efficiency for an instrument panel is not achieved as desired .A small modification  can be helpful for increasing the cooling efficiency of panel.The proposed modification is applicable where only 1 exhaust fan is used in the original panel  supplied as indicated in Fig 1..

Instrument Panel Exhaust Fan

Proposed modification:

The modification can be carried out as indicated in fig 2.The additional fan will help in giving the more amount of fresh air from nature and the overall effect will be reduced temperature inside the panel.

The benefits  will be

  1. Improved cooling
  2. Enhanced life for electronics components
  3. Higher availability of system
