PowerSupply

By gyroscope ·
Hello,

I have to put a computer into a very bad enviroment (dirty, dusty). Does anybody know of a power supply and/or cpu fan that would be well suited for this? I have searched google for industrial power supply but did not turn anything up. Thanks for the help.

I would expand your search to "industrial computer enclosures." Take a look here to start: http://www.bytebox.com/

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the answer. Due to the priciness of these enclosures I wanted another solution.

That definitly will work... A little on the pricey side (especially for custom built machines) But if that is what I have to do I will. I am going to leave the question open for a little while to see if anything else pops up.

Thanks for the help.

Aside from an industrial style case, you could set up the case for positive ventilation.

Make sure that the power supply fans are set to **** out, and install a large case fan that blows air in.
Install a filter over the inlet for the case fan.
You want at least 10% more CFM on the inlet fan then the total of all outlet fans.
(take into account the air flow that will be lost with the filter in place)
