Rittal Canada Blue e+ enclusure designed for maximum energy and cost efficiency.
Rittal Canada unveiled its line of Blue e+ cooling units that use two parallel cooling circuits working together plus an integral heat pipe that dissipates heat from the enclosure as soon as the ambient temperature falls below the set point. Active climatization is achieved via the compressor’s cooling circuit with speed-controlled components for demand-based cooling. Providing multi-voltage capability, the units’ possible input voltages range from 110 V (single phase) to 480 V (three-phase) at grid frequencies of 50 or 60 Hz.
Other features include a front-mounted touch-screen display and password-protected Near-Field Communications (NFC) that provides real-time performance data and quick modification of the unit’s settings. The Blue e+ cooling units offer cooling capacities up to 6,000 watts (previously up to 4,000 watts) and can be used in environments ranging from -30°C to +60°C.
