I recommend having more control over your system and alarms. The absolute most simple solution is to hang a basic thermostat on the wall wired to your transmitter interconnect switching so if the temp gets too hot, it shuts off the tx. I have alarms that tell me when the room temps at transmitters go over 80. I monitor temps on screen as well as have control over a couple of the AC units remotely. When I see a temp rising, I lower transmitter power to see if I can keep it on and below 90 deg until I get there to fix it.

just some thoughts...

Also a VS-1.  Had to go back to the factory for repairs.  It shut down somewhere around 122°F.

Yep- a VS1, but not only was the display blank, it completely shut down.  I was surprised the NX-6 in the building was still cranking out over 5kW when the room temp had reached almost 140 deg.

Anyone here have a newer Nautel that was in a small space where the AC failed? The UI screen is blank, but I think it's on - just no characters.  I suspect the temp when we got there was over 120 in the room. The transmitter is on and I believe it's at the same power level where I left it last. I just can't see anything and I have no control. Can I plug a computer in the interface and see the control stats and menu?
