Autumn is Here, Time to Reflect!

Author: Karl Lycett

Finally! The temperature seems to be reducing to a more bearable level, the nights are slowly drawing in and... do I see a hint of colour change in the trees?

That’s right Autumn is upon us once again, and that can only mean one thing… It’s time to stop, look back at the summer period and understand how things went. During the summer months did you see: 

  • Electrical equipment under stress?
  • Unexpected breakdowns?
  • Emergency repairs needed on critical equipment?

If any of this sounds familiar or has happened to you, now is the perfect time to put plans into place, to make your life easier when next summer rolls around. 

Servicing, upgrading, or even specifying some brand-new Climate Control to protect your equipment, is one of the most effective ways of creating a protective environment. For your sensitive electrical equipment, within your enclosures and ensuring, it lasts for many more summers to come.

Even if your cooling equipment is up to date, there is always an opportunity to make small improvements, which will increase your overall efficiency.

Industry 4.0 principles that helps your business.

A great example is the implementation of Industry 4.0 principles. Simply put this is taking any data generated, by cooling equipment and allowing it to be directly reported, into your building management systems or straight to the relevant person, in charge of managing the health of your electrical equipment.

This reduces the need for daily walk round with a clipboard, making notes of any issues. This old-style approach can result, in things being missed and breakdowns occurring unexpectedly. However with new solutions now available, you can choose to have e-mails, sent directly to key personnel whenever limits have been reached and warning flags are showing. This means staff are able to be utilised more efficiently and can have peace of mind that they will be notified if any issues begin to arise.

We know that your sole focus doesn’t lie on Climate Control, you have more important things to worry about. Mainly keeping your business up and running and producing for your customers.

Rittal is here to help.

That is where Rittal is here to help, over the next three months we are going to cover a different theme related to Climate Control every month, but with the focus on how you can use this information, to get the most out of your equipment. By creating that protective environment and allowing it to thrive and stay healthy.

This takes the workload off you, when the temperature starts to rise again and allows you to concentrate, on more important matters on site, while in the back of your mind knowing you have implemented systems to keep your equipment chugging along.

The additional benefits of undertaking this action, is the reduction in energy usage and costs related to the replacement of spare parts etc. If items are tripping out every year, this causes a high level of wear on components, which can result in less orders being produced to replace burnt out cards etc.. All of these small changes are going to impact your bottom line and overall efficiency.

Future climate control tips.

Over the next three months the topics covered are going to be as follows, with different media every week to support the overarching theme of Climate Control:

September          --- The Fundamentals of Cooling

October               ---Service & Maintenance of Cooling Equipment

November          --- Focus on: Cooling Industry

If you feel like any of the topics mentioned above would be of benefit to you, then keep your eyes peeled on our social channels, or sign up for the latest updates below, for the contact to begin rolling out in September.

In the meantime, if you have any specific questions, send an e-mail to cooling@rittal.co.uk and one of our colleagues will get in touch to help.
