Overheating Precaution

Some precautions to avoid destruction by overheating include:
- The surrounding air temperature should be kept below 45°C to prevent overheating.
- The unit can operate at temperatures up to 55°C if air recirculation is present. If necessary, a fan should be used to maintain this temperature range; details on this can be found in the "Fan" section on page 72 of the documentation.
- If the internal temperature of the unit reaches approximately 80°C, it will automatically shut off to prevent damage.
- A warning "Temp !!!" will be displayed if the internal temperature is 70°C or higher.
- The user program can monitor the internal temperature of the IndraControl L45/L65/L85 using the "IH_Temperature" functions in the RIH_HW

It is crucial to monitor and manage the temperature of the CML85 unit carefully to avoid the risks associated with overheating, which can include system failure, reduced operational lifespan, and potential safety hazards.

The built-in temperature monitoring and control measures are designed to protect the unit and ensure safe operation. Users should ensure that they are familiar with the cooling requirements and follow the guidelines for temperature management to prevent overheating.

In cases where the temperature approaches the upper limits, proactive measures should be taken, such as improving air circulation with fans or triggering system safety protocols to reduce the temperature. Failure to manage the temperature effectively could result in the unit's automatic shutdown to prevent damage, or in severe cases, it could cause permanent damage to the unit.
