Menlo Park, CA – Noren Products Inc. released its smallest and lowest-cost air-to-air heat exchanger, the "Mighty Mini" CC100 cabinet cooler, designed to provide low cost, small form factor protection against overheating in all types of electrical, electronic, drive and device control panels. Noren Products develops and manufacturers thermal products such as heat pipes, thermal pins, and heat exchangers.
As the newest addition to the Noren Products Compact Cabinet Cooler product line, the CC100 provides closed-loop cooling within sealed enclosures, protecting valuable electronics from contamination caused by dirt, oil, humidity and corrosives. Compact design uses unique and highly efficient heat pipe technology, to remove the excess heat from electrical and electronic enclosures, Noren Products says.
The company’s CEO, Kimberley Dawn, said: "Our customers asked for a low cost, small form factor solution, for cooling their sealed control panels, and we can now offer just that. The CC100 provides protection from downtime caused by heat failure, while keeping contaminants out, and at a much lower operating cost than air conditioning.”
It is rated at 700 BTU/hr cooling capacity with efficiency of 10 Watts per degree Celsius and offers years of reliable and near zero-maintenance operation. Small form factor allows installation on even the smallest enclosures, extending the life of valuable electronics and avoiding costly downtime due to heat and contamination.
The “Mighty Mini CC100” is the smallest of the Noren Products line of Compact Cabinet Coolers, which are offered in air-to-air and air-to-water configurations. Noren’s line includes units rated from 700 BTU/hr to 57,900 BTU/hr in NEMA 12, 3R, 4, 4X, stainless steel and UL/cUL.
Free, easy-to-use online cabinet cooler sizing program at the company's URL determines the exact cabinet cooler for the application; application engineers also can provide recommendations by phone.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
