April 29, 2015 – Schaumburg, IL – Rittal North America (www.rittal.us), the world’s largest manufacturer of electrical enclosure cabinets for power distribution systems, climate control systems and IT infrastructure, has created a program to promote energy consumption audits in production facility and data center enclosures.
Those who register to receive a Free Energy Audit from Rittal (valued at over $1500) from now until September 30, 2015 will be entered to win one of several popular FLIR ONE smartphone thermal imaging cameras, which are used to create a quick infrared image of an enclosure or electronics cabinet to detect the hot spots and thermal build-up that are so damaging to sensitive electronics.
“On the plant floor and throughout a data center, heat becomes any electronic device’s worst enemy,” explained Glenn Wishnew, manager, product management at Rittal. “Failure to detect and control even small fluctuations in temperature inside an enclosure can cause major damage that leads to production shutdowns and service interruptions. Our Energy Audit program is designed to provide valuable insight into where a facility is exposed to thermal risk, and to identify places where our new energy-efficient air conditioner technology can reduce consumption costs.”
Rittal’s extensive line of energy efficient air conditioners can provide up to 70 percent energy savings, a significant advantage that will bring rapid ROI to facilities that switch out to the newer systems.
“As equipment continues to be downsized, heat becomes an even bigger problem,” said Wishnew. “The Energy Audit program will identify not just dangerous hot spots that need immediate attention, but will highlight areas of energy savings they can realize with our new technology even in those areas that aren’t experiencing immediate thermal management problems.”
Rittal’s newest climate control product, the Type 3R Air Conditioner, is perfect for outdoor applications. Type 3R Air Conditioners are off-the-shelf solutions that are UL listed and ready for UL508A applications in both indoor and outdoor environments. The Type 3R Air Conditioner offers a higher energy efficiency
ratio than competitive units, with more power provided in a lighter weight unit. Type 3R Air Conditioners come in 12 sizes with outputs ranging from 1000 to 8000 BTU (300W to 2400 W). The result is a savings of up to 45 percent of the energy consumption of similar units with the same cooling output, and up to 70 percent energy savings compared with conventional air conditioners in field trials.
Rittal is offering a chance to win a FLIR ONE Thermal Imager because infrared imaging technology is widely used in detecting enclosure hot spots. The FLIR ONE snaps onto an Android or iOS smartphone so that you can spot energy waste wherever you go in your enterprise.
