I am installing floor heating with a 1500VA transformer/power supply. The instructions state the transformer can reach between 158-176F and is heavily heat sinked but is very vague about locations to mount it.
Can I mount this on Drywall if it's spaced off the wall to provide some airflow? or should this only be mounted on brick/concrete?
POSITIONING THE POWER SUPPLY
To ensure optimum conditions and a long service life for power supplies it is important to:
• Position the power supply in such a way that heat is dissipated effectively.
• Never put a power supply where the ambient temperature is higher than 25C
(77F), unless specified otherwise on the power supply's rating plate.
• The power supply must not be in contact with flammable materials, as it is completely normal for power supplies to heat up and reach 70-80C (158-176F).
