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’s Therm 6.3 software is designed to simplify the often time-consuming and complicated calculation of enclosure cooling and heating requirements.
According to Rittal, its fan-and-filter units with EC (electronically commutated) motors should be the preferred choice for energy efficiency in enclosure climate control, as their operating ratio is significantly higher than standard AC fan-and-filter units.
Efficient drive systems, idle power loss reductions and the renewable energy sector all require safe, reliable DC solutions and, while they cannot replace AC applications across the board, they are definitely growing in importance. Rittal is offering an approved busbar system with standard components, optimised for both AC and DC applications. No other products are required.
Rittal has expanded its modular TS IT rack to offer more than 100 configurations, providing customers with more options and greater flexibility for their IT enclosures. The range of enclosures comprises a selection of dimensions that can be combined with a choice of interior components.
For switchgear with ratings above 1,600A, air circuit breakers (ACBs) and copper connections have to be tested for short circuit and the effects of heat rise. Rittal’s latest RPE software (version 6.2) can supply the actual current-carry capacity (Inc) of all leading ACB manufacturers, plus the CAD drawings of the ACB connections required to fit within the Ri4Power modular switchgear systems.
