Rittal has developed a roof-mounted version of its award-winning and highly energy efficient Blue e+ cooling units; these are designed for enclosures of 800 x 600mm (W x D) upwards and deliver a cooling output of 1.3 kW.
The new roof-mounted units also feature within the new VX25 large enclosure system as an integrated solution.
Roof-mounted climate control units are the top choice in control and switchgear applications where there is a lack of space on the front and side panels. This could be due to physical location of the enclosures and minimal gangway clearance, but could also be due to an abundance of interlocks, switches or other controls preventing adequate space for a wall mounted cooling unit.
Energy consumption is very low because neither a compressor nor a pump is required when the cooling units are operating on the heat pipe; only the fans that circulate the air by the heat exchangers need an electricity supply. This cooling method works particularly well if there is a large temperature difference between the inside of the enclosure and the surroundings.
- Efficiency – Average 75% energy savings thanks to speed-regulated components and heat pipe technology
- Versatility – Suitable for international use due to unique multi-voltage capability
- Safety – Longer service life of the components inside the enclosure and the cooling unit due to component-friendly cooling
- User-friendliness – Intuitive operation due to touch display and intelligent interfaces
