IoT-enabled Climate Control from Rittal

IoT-enabled Climate Control from Rittal

Pairing IoT control with high-efficiency cooling delivers value to the bottom line. With Rittal’s IoT interface for its high-efficiency climate control solutions, data collection and analysis allow relevant data and parameters to be shared around the plant, or any business location. A multitude of values can be measured, stored in the cloud, and analyzed to ensure preventative maintenance is performed and control systems are protected. This protects uptime, improves efficiency and lowers maintenance costs.

With the Blue e+ platform and the IoT interface, Rittal is laying the foundation for the optimal integration of cooling units as well as chillers in Industry 4.0 applications.

Features

Energy Efficiency

  • Hybrid technology combines active, compressor-based cooling with a passive-cooling heat pipe. Using both active and passive cooling circuits provides greater energy efficiency and decreased electrical use.

Flexibility

  • Using inverter technology, Blue e+ air conditioners have multi-voltage capability allowing them to work with virtually any standard voltage
  • OEMs and distributors simplify inventory by needing to stock only one item.
  • Logistics is also simplified by reducing the number of device variants and spare parts.
  • The Blue e+ cooling units offer cooling capacities up to 6,000 watts and can be used in environments ranging from -20°C to +60°C.

Simplicity

  • Standard cut-out sizes in enclosure doors and side panels make installation and service quick and simple.
  • A secure and accessible USB inter-face allows for efficient diagnostics using monitoring software. The data is gathered at a glance, including temperature and efficiency and more for all operating units.
  • A touch-screen display on the front of all units provides all relevant information.
  • System messages appear as plain text and are multi-lingual.

IoT Interface

  • Iot enabled climate control can know the current and expected temperatures and adjust fans or other cooling accordingly. Blue+ module or Blue e adapter enable data from cooling units and chillers to be used in IoT environments to provide centralized management, custom alerts and better integration.
