Pentair Technical Products announces the McLean® brand Direct Air Cooling System (DACS) for cooling electronics in diverse outdoor applications. DACS is a cost-effective alternative to closed loop cooling solutions for a wide range of applications. Utilizing quiet fan-based technology, enclosures equipped with a DACS cooling unit draw filtered ambient air into the enclosure to dissipate heat, enhancing the operation of sensitive electronic components.
The system is available in four standard models, a range of sizes from 29 to 56 inches high and with Hydrophobic GORE™ and MERV 12 filtration styles. DACS units can be customized to ideally suit many applications. Models are available in aluminum, stainless steel and diverse paint options to compliment individual enclosures. Additionally, with power input options of 24V, 48V, 115V and 230V, DACS is built to meet individual application requirements.
For applications prone to moisture exposure, models equipped with Hydrophobic GORE filters utilize GORE’s unique microporous membrane. The filter is highly permeable to air while simultaneously preventing water and other corrosive particles from infiltrating the enclosures. Alternatively, models featuring MERV 12 pleated filters provide a cost-effective solution with off-the-shelf convenience. Since DACS models have distinct filtration capabilities, users can select the unit best able to accommodate the specific protection needs for their application.
“Pentair Technical Products’ McLean brand has over 30 years of experience partnering with clients, and the knowledge and expertise to develop solutions for diverse cooling challenges,” said Heidi Hung, DACS Product Manager for Pentair Technical Products. “With the addition of flexible, effective solutions such as DACS, McLean continues to position itself as an innovator of cooling strategies, accommodating everything from the most demanding closed loop cooling to simple but effective open loop cooling solutions.”
All models are equipped with a controller to adjust fan speed based on temperature. This control provides soft start and precise current limiting at start up, noise reduction and energy efficiency. The controller also delivers alarm logic so preventative measures can be taken. A composite alarm is provided for high temperature, loss of power and failure of temperature sensor.
Additional features include easy-to-replace filters and variable speed blowers for quiet operation. Constructed to withstand harsh conditions, the system offers operating temperatures ranging from -40 to 55 C, vibration resistance and is UL Type 3R, CE and Telcordia GR-487 capable. This enables the system to deliver reliable cooling in diverse outdoor applications such as telecommunications equipment, kiosks and displays.
