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 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.
The development of a power station plant room not only provided logistical and technical issues but also harsh environmental considerations for Nova Controls during its installation of a water treatment PLC for a Yorkshire biomass site. The performance of Rittal’s Ri4power modular switchgear busbar system helped to deliver the solution that the site demanded.
Rittal is offering a large range of cooling products that are suitable for addressing the problem of overheating panels. The company’s TopTherm fan-and-filter units, for example, provide an energy efficient means of cooling enclosures but require a clean and cool environment to operate effectively.
An efficient IT infrastructure is now at the core of every modern business, but underneath the tiers of applications and operating systems a robust and reliable platform is essential. Rittal claims that its TS IT system provides optimum stability and maximum space utilisation thanks to its welded frame construction.
