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 introduced an optimal efficiency package to determine and display the energy consumption in a Rimatrix S standardised data centre via the power usage effectiveness (PUE) value.
Rittal’s SE 8 enclosure range has UL, cUL and NEMA 12 (IP55 equivalent) approvals as standard features, with protection class NEMA 12 as the default, making it suitable for extreme conditions as well as being sufficient for the majority of applications.
Rittal’s Ridiag II software is a set-up, diagnostic and data-acquisition tool that can be used to view and adjust settings, log equipment data and track performance in real time. It is compatible with Rittal’s Toptherm Blue E-cooling units, which are designed to provide an energy-efficient means of cooling enclosures.
Rittal is offering a more energy-efficient means of ventilating enclosures by supplying electronically commutated (EC) versions of the Toptherm fan and filter unit, in all but the very smallest size.
Rittal’s modular partial door can be used instead of a door or rear panel and is suitable for 400mm-, 600mm- and 800mm-wide TS enclosures.
