SMALL ENCLOSURE HEATER WITH BIG EFFECT – THE RC 016
CAMERA HEATING - WHEN INSTALLATION SPACE IS AT A PREMIUM
There is little space in the small housings of CCTV cameras, for example. And this is where the RC 016 from STEGO comes into play. Because cameras need to be heated due to often exposed outdoor installation locations. Heating reduces thermal stress and maintains a constant internal housing temperature. In this way, the image sensor in particular is protected from moisture, condensation, and frost. Image quality and camera life are thus improved, and the risk of damage and failure is minimized.
Small installation spaces are everywhere. In addition to the eponymous installation spaces in cameras, there are also other fields of application.
HEATING HOUSINGS OF GEARBOXES AND ACTUATORS
With little effort and technical expense, the application safety of, for example, gearboxes and actuators can also be significantly improved. Here are some of the advantages of installing an RC 016 PTC heater in such applications.
- Avoid condensation: Cold enclosures and warm media (e.g. hot oils) are a typical situation where condensation forms. Heating inside the enclosure prevents this and thus protects the gearbox or actuator from corrosion and damage.
- Improve performance: Heating the housing can also improve the operating conditions of the gearbox or actuator. For example, a higher temperature in the housing can help the oil or gases flow better, resulting in higher performance.
- Extend service life: Avoiding condensation and improving operating conditions can extend the service life of the gearbox or actuator. A well-heated enclosure can also help reduce wear and damage caused by temperature changes.
- Reduce maintenance costs: If the housing is heated, maintenance costs can be reduced. Because the gearbox or actuator is operating in a warm environment, less maintenance is required to maintain the performance and life of the unit.
Overall, heating gearbox and actuator housings can help improve the reliability, performance, and service lifetime of these devices, contributing to greater efficiency and cost savings.

PTC – IDEAL FOR CONTINUOUS DUTY HEATING
The RC 016 is a PTC heater that helps to maintain the temperature in the installation space at a predefined level. The heater is designed for an operating voltage of 120 to 240 V. The three available heating outputs of 8, 10 and 13 W are designed in regard of the typical practical usage. The compact heater fits easily into the housing.
Designed as a convection heater in PTC technology, the heater operates completely noiselessly. The temperature-limiting PTC heating elements make the RC 016 ideally suited for continuous operation. Your sensitive electronics are thus safely protected during longer periods of cold weather.
MADE IN GERMANY – TO SAFEGUARD YOUR ELECTRONICS
Summary: The RC 016 control cabinet heater from STEGO is a reliable and effective solution for temperature control in "tricky" installation situations such as housings of small devices and appliances. It provides long-term and safe protection for electronic components and devices. The RC 016 heater from STEGO is another example of high-quality and innovative thermal management products from the manufacturer based in Schwaebisch Hall, Germany.
