Quick, Simple and Accurate Calculation of Climate Control Requirements
- Published: Monday, 17 June 2013 09:03
RiTherm 6.2 includes generic component heat loss data and a heat loss calculator for busbars; an option to divide the required cooling output between several devices; a detailed breakdown of bayed enclosure suites; a saved project library that can be sorted and allows individual projects to be copied and an integrated chiller configurator.
Enclosures can be selected from Rittal ranges or alternatively, the dimensions of bespoke cabinets can be entered manually. The heat dissipated by installed equipment can be input directly, calculated using actual measured enclosure internal and ambient temperatures or selected from a database of standard components.
A user-friendly interface guides you to the most suitable, correctly dimensioned climate control solution. All evaluations are based on the requirements of IEC/TR3 60890 890 AMD 1 and DIN 3168 for enclosure cooling units and, therefore, this useful tool offers considerable peace of mind when selecting climate control components.
At the end of the calculation information is presented in the form of a detailed summary containing calculated enclosure surface area; radiant power emitted to the environment or absorbed from outside; resultant required cooling output; enclosure internal temperature excluding cooling measures and the proposed solution.
Two versions of RiTherm 6.2 are available, an update to Therm 6.0 or later, or a 30-day trial, both of which may be downloaded from the Rittal website. The 30-day trial version can be upgraded to the full package.
