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

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
