Rittal’s RiDiag II Software

Rittal’s TopTherm Blue e cooling units provide an energy efficient means of cooling enclosures. Incorporating the integrated eComfort controller and offering energy savings of up to 45%, the units are compatible with Rittal’s RiDiag II software.
RiDiag II is a setup, diagnostic and data acquisition tool that can be used to view and adjust settings, log equipment data and track performance in real-time. All cooling parameters, such as the enclosure internal temperature setpoint, switching hysteresis, high temperature alarm offset and sensitivity of the filter mat monitoring, can be modified and saved. The results of diagnostic checks may also be stored.
With connection to a PC or laptop the following data can be retrieved from the cooling unit: Time and frequency of any error messages generated, maximum environmental and minimum internal enclosure temperatures recorded and the duty cycle and cooling unit utilisation.
Whether an end user or installer, RiDiag II can be of benefit. It significantly reduces the amount of time taken to set up multiple units with the same parameters, ensures the correct settings are input and creates a backup file of the application specific settings. Saved diagnostic checks document the operating history of a cooling unit and data collected from a cooling unit may be used to identify any faults or incorrect installation.
