Product description

Handling and operation

  • Quiet normal running due to frequency-controlled fans and sound-optimised compressors
  • Different operating modes through fully automatic Siemens S7 controller: very quiet (whisper operation - often needs to be run at night), rapid cooling (booster operation), ventilation operation (only air) and normal operation
  • Efficient, large-area filter with integrated filter monitoring
  • Increased safety through counter pressure display
  • Optimal control through viewing window in air cooler
  • Effective device protection through integrated phase and undervoltage monitoring
  • Reliable start even at low outside temperatures due to speed-controlled condenser fans
  • Easy and thorough cleaning due to easy accessibility e.g. by heat exchangers with wide fin spacing, housing doors, manholes and inspection openings in the air duct

Energy and environmental balance

  • Economical solution due to low power consumption
  • Energy-efficient design due to frequency controls and state-of-the-art motors
  • Environment friendly safety refrigerant - without CFCs and without HCFCs
  • Further energy savings through winter and summer thermostats
  • Permanent compliance and monitoring of setpoint cooling air humidity and temperature with HYGROTHERM™
