The industrial air conditioner for ecological and digital transition

The issue of global warming was once considered of marginal importance, but over the years, it has garnered increasing attention and priority, now reaching a state of utmost urgency. Strategies for accelerating the energy efficiency process in the industrial world have therefore been developed.
The rise in energy costs is closely linked to conditioning products, as they are part of industrial processes, and operational costs represent about 50% of the total unit cost. Excellent Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) values, the ability to absorb less electrical power, and produce fewer CO2 emissions have thus become important characteristics.

With the advent of the web and smartphones, the amount of information exchanged has increased significantly. Moreover, through the entire system of information technology and telecommunications, various aspects of the industry are radically changing, projecting us into a highly expansive “digital phase”. Companies and all processes contributing to their success are rapidly evolving, driven by aspects related to digitalization.
The air conditioner, an integral part of the electrical framework of a production line or a machine tool, is a critical factor in the production process. The ability to directly connect the unit to a network to monitor its operation offers advantages in terms of information integration and maintenance.

The combination of these two needs has led to the introduction of the FlexIn air conditioner.

Benefits

On one hand, Inverter technology allows:

  • Modulation of cooling output based on actual thermal load
  • High efficiency with significant energy and cost benefits
  • Reduced temperature fluctuations inside the electrical panel
  • Decreased number of on-off cycles and increased compressor lifespan

On the other hand, the integrated ethernet port allows:

  • Direct connection, without additional costs for interface devices, to the most common communication protocols HTTP, SNMP, and TCP-IP
  • Visualization and settings of the main parameters, 24/7, reducing commissioning times, analysis, and troubleshooting
  • Display of all alarms and the ability to download the alarm list
  • Option to choose the language (Italian, English, German, French, Spanish)

    Applications:

    • Hydrogen/Renewable energies
    • Machine tools
    • Food & Beverage
    • Automotive & E-mobility
