Rittal adds Efficiency Label to TopTherm PLUS Air Conditioners

SPRINGFIELD, OH, April 13, 2008 – Rittal announced its Rittal Efficiency Label program, to demonstrate the environmental friendliness of its TopTherm PLUS air conditioning systems. Created in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14021, the Rittal Efficiency Label is now being affixed to all TopTherm PLUS cooling units. This label has been designed to show Rittal’s commitment to three dimensions of efficiency –
  • reduced energy consumption
  • reduced environmental waste and
  • enhanced longevity and performance.

    The Rittal Efficiency Label rating was created in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Manufacturing Technologies and Automation (Fraunhofer IPA), a research organization with offices in Europe and the United States. Results were then verified with repeated testing by additional entities. TUV Nord and DMT GmbH conducted numerous tests according to DIN 3168, the only standard in the world to specifically gauge the performance and efficiency of enclosure cooling units, and contamination tests with ASHRAE dust (ASHRAE standards 52.2).

    Tests showed that Rittal’s TopTherm PLUS units handle higher heat-dissipating applications than predecessor Rittal cooling systems without consuming as much energy. The TopTherm PLUS air conditioners also produce less waste than standard air conditioners due to Rittal’s RiNano coating , a molecular coating placed on condenser coils. This coating protects the coils, providing a thin, impenetrable barrier that prevents particulate from sticking to them. This enables the TopTherm air conditioners to operate at peak performance for longer periods of time, maintain higher output levels without additional energy usage and require less maintenance, eliminating weekly filter mat replacement and bi-weekly condensate disposal.

    “We are extremely pleased to initiate the Rittal Efficiency Label program for our air conditioning units. This effort illustrates Rittal’s dedication to the continued research and development of cleaner, more efficient cooling technologies that will contribute to the protection of our environment,” said Judith Koetzsch, Rittal Corporation’s Business Development Manager/Climate Control.

    Rittal Corporation, headquartered in Springfield, Ohio, is a part of Rittal GmbH & Co. KG - the world’s leading enclosure manufacturer. Their complete product offering includes industrial enclosures, 19” electronic components, climate control, power distribution, data communication and telecommunication/outdoor products.
