Heat exchangers provide highly efficient cooling for electrical components. As energy costs increase, they are getting more consideration by system designers. Before making a design decision between air-to-air and air-to-water heat exchangers it is important to weigh installation considerations and use-cases. Here, we have provided an overview of each technology to help you determine which can best impact your equipment and your bottom line.
Design News and Rittal Answer Your Climate Control Questions
What is the trickiest part for you in specifying climate control for your industrial or IT enclosure? It could be making the most energy efficient decision, or keeping up with climate control technology. Maybe your location is isolated or the ambient temperatures are about to soar in the summer months.
Rittal opened its Oil & Gas Competency Center and showcased enclosure and climate control technology solutions for hundreds of attendees at the Grand Opening event.
Industrial enclosures face harsh conditions. From blazing to frigid temperatures, to dust, oil, dirt, airborne corrosives and liquids. Industrial engineers know that the manufacturing environment poses a multitude of challenges to the integrity of the control panel infrastructure.
Energy savings is top of mind these days, especially when it comes to efficiently cooling industrial enclosures. We understand that you’ve got to not only protect the sensitive components inside your enclosures from heat, but need to do it in an energy efficient and cost-conscious manner. That’s why Rittal created the ChillZone app, an energy savings estimator for its Blue e+ line of industrial enclosure cooling solutions.
Rittal has set a new standard with the LED compact system light. The innovative LED technology shines into every corner of industrial enclosures, from the roof to the floor. No other enclosure light on the market today provides the lumen power…up to three times the luminous flux of the next closest competitor.
Every enclosure represents a unique challenge. Power systems, lighting, wiring, door configuration, and cooling units all require custom modifications. Full automation of the process increases accuracy and improves the turnaround time.
Working among the electrical components in an enclosure comes with inherent risks. The power in any one enclosure can range from 2kw up to 200kw depending on the power density. One of the most common and dangerous risk is an arc flash (or flashover).
Complete project control from the first customer interface through delivery and installation sounds good on paper. But during these initial steps: design creation, schematics, purchasing, labeling, documentation and manual tasks, efficiency and control are lost, and production costs mount. Until now. Rittal brings the Industry 4.0 Value Chain to design and production at any organization of any size. This is the next revolution in manufacturing as businesses move into a new era of faster production and turnaround time...up to 50 percent faster.
