Thermal Design of a Rugged Industrial IoT Gateway hos Secomea A/S

Who are we?

At Secomea A/S, we build market-leading, secure remote access solutions for industrial IoT applications like factories and infrastructure installations. Our products provide service technicians with remote access to protected IT equipments and transfer sensor data to the cloud. Customers depend on us providing best in class security, reliability, and connectivity without compromising ease of use.

As a student, you can get a desk in our office in Herlev and are encouraged to meet and collaborate with our engineers throughout the project.

Project Description

This project investigates the thermal design of the SiteManager, a rugged, industrial IoT Gateway with Wi-Fi and 4G connectivity. It is one of the core elements of the Secomea Secure Remote Access solution. You can read more about the SiteManager in the datasheet (

The project should answer the following questions:

  • How well does our SiteManager cope with an operating ambient temperature ranging from -20°C to 60°C?

  • How can we improve the thermal drain of internal parts and cooling of the enclosure passively or actively.

  • Could we use internal heaters to cope with even cooler environment (-40°C)?
