Sizing software ensures proper thermal management of enclosures

The Java-based PSS application for server room cooling units, enclosure blowers, cabinet heaters, and outdoor cooling units guides users through the sizing process, step-by-step.


Proper thermal management is key for saving resources and keeping electronics (and machinery) up and running on a consistent basis. To ensure proper cooling and consistent operation of electronic controls, Pfannenberg USA offers free sizing software. The company manufactures filter fans, cooling units (air conditioners), air-water heat exchangers, heaters, hydrostats, and thermostats for electronic enclosures.

To provide the best thermal management engineering support, the company has developed the PSS sizing application for its server room cooling units, enclosure blowers, cabinet heaters, and outdoor cooling units. This Java-based program guides users through the sizing process, step-by-step. The software can be customized to your applications by allowing you to enter your own components and enclosure styles in the database for easy and fast calculations. The software also accounts for indoor and outdoor applications, and assists in calculating heat dissipation within enclosure cabinets.
