The interface turns the cooling units and chillers in the Blue e+ range into IoT-compatible devices. Mountable on a top hat rail or directly on the cooling unit or chiller, the interface also supports OPC-UA, Profinet, SNMP, Modbus and CANopen protocols.
The communication options available through the new IoT interface also make it possible to integrate the climate control solutions into IoT applications, such as energy data management. Rittal says the data from the cooling units and chillers is available at all times.
