  • Blue e+ Cooling Units At a Glance

    June 4, 2024

    Energy costs account for almost 50% of the total cost of a cooling unit, making it the area of greatest potential savings. Rittal’s “Blue e” technology can save you up to 45% in energy costs over the life cycle of the cooling unit.

    “Blue e” technology highlights:

    • save up to 45% in energy consumption with the same cooling output.
    • Eco-mode control: The evaporator coil fan turns off as necessary, depending on the internal temperature of the enclosure.
    • with components such as fans and compressors running at their optimum operating point, items in the enclosure and cooling units have a longer service life.
