• Seven steps for survival

    With the current 2018 record-breaking summer heatwave potentially stretching on into August, Bsria has created a seven steps to surviving in buildings, factory, office and workplace alike guide:

    * Installation of external solar shading – technicalities, practicalities and location allowing. 

    * Installing glazing that reduces solar gain – possibly 'green' foil that reflects high levels of radiant heat.

  • Cloud-based cooling

    Cooling units are playing an increasingly important role in Industry 4.0. Seamless communication between cooling units and associated cloud-based systems is opening up opportunities for new applications. Karl Lycett, Rittal’s product manager for Climate Control, explores why IoT-capable devices such as the cooling units and chillers in the Rittal Blue e+ range are essential to these applications.
