Smart condition monitoring.

Get cooling units IoT-ready with a special adapter from Rittal that links up older Blue e cooling units to smart condition monitoring and IoT systems.

It handles up to 10 cooling units in a master/slave arrangement. Data is recorded, while efficiency analyses are carried out. A monitoring system issues automatic notifications and sets up to detect faults and limit breaches, helping to prevent machine downtime.

The adapter is compatible with all NEMA 12, 3R/4, and 4X rated – wall and roof-mounted – Blue e units that employ Rittal’s Comfort Controller.

Rittal Systems Ltd. is a supplier of industrial enclosures, climate control, power management systems and automation services with offices in Mississauga, Ont.
