Rittal introduces Blue E cooling units designed to provide energy savings of up to 45 per cent
Blue E cooling units
Rittal claims that its Blue E cooling units have the same nominal cooling output, physical size and cut-out dimensions as the equivalent Rittal Basic cooling units and can realise energy savings of up to 45 per cent.
Each cooling unit features additional monitoring functions on the seven-segment display, including high-condensate-level warning, a clogged-filter mat alarm, enclosure internal temperature and error messages. As a result, the health of the unit can be checked at a glance.
Using the SK BUS system, up to 10 Rittal Blue E cooling units can be connected together in a master and slave configuration.
- Passcode protection — this both restricts access and prevents accidental adjustment
- Ridiag II software — this setup, diagnostic and data acquisition tool may be used in conjunction with the Toptherm Blue E cooling unit
Rittal has announced that it will showcase its PADS- and LUL-approved range of enclosures at RAILTEX 2015.
Rittal’s CMC (computer multi control) III systems have been launched with updated firmware to allow a more user-friendly experience along with better access to data storage and greater data storage capacity. This makes reviewing data centre performance over time and mapping trends far easier.
Rittal’s acquisition of Kiesling in 2013 means that the company can offer machines and solutions that facilitate the optimisation of the complete work-flow in panel-building manufacture.
In 1999, Rittal launched its TS 8 enclosure system. Today, with more than 10 million enclosures manufactured so far, the TS 8 bayed enclosure has become established as the standard for many industries worldwide. Industries include mechanical engineering, panel building and switchgear production, automotive, energy, information technology, telecommunications, food and processing.
Rittal air/air heat exchangers are said to be highly effective at lowering the temperature inside enclosures in cool environments. They are cost effective and energy efficient while also being suitable for dirty or dusty settings — unlike traditional fan-and-filter units.
