Cooling of switching cabinets and power electronics
For machine cooling, the eChiller has been used for cooling laser cutting systems, e.g. in sheet metal processing
Switching or control cabinets are omnipresent in the manufacturing sector and in industry, and the rapid spread of digital process monitoring and demand-optimised process control (Industry 4.0) is causing an upsurge in power electronics. The ever-growing number of switch cabinets and increase in removing waste heat from power electronics is also resulting in greater demand for cooling. Industry has many examples of production halls where the exhaust heat from cooling machines is rejected directly into the hall which results in:
The eChiller provides the chilled water for cooling of the switching cabinets, while decentralised air/water heat exchangers remove the heat of the switch cabinets. The heat exchangers have a cooling capacity of 350 W to 10 kW, depending on the configuration – which can be increased to as much as 40 kW using modular systems.
