The customer, an American vehicle and clean energy product manufacturer based in California, approached nVent SCHROFF with a unique requirement. They needed traditional protection for both rack-mounted and non-rack mount devices used for their battery charging, discharging, and thermal performance measurements. The challenge was to provide a solution that could accommodate both types of devices and also allow for customization on a cabinet by cabinet basis. The customer wanted the flexibility to decide what custom options they needed for their testing equipment, depending on the specific requirements of each cabinet.
About The Customer
The customer in this case study is an American vehicle and clean energy product manufacturer based in California. They are involved in the production of vehicles and clean energy products, which require extensive testing and measurement. For this, they use a variety of devices, both rack-mounted and non-rack mounted. The customer needed a solution that could provide traditional protection for these devices and also allow for customization based on the specific requirements of each cabinet. They sought a solution that would offer flexibility and efficiency in terms of configuration, cost, and cycle time.
nVent SCHROFF's sales and design engineer teams collaborated to evaluate the customer's needs on a cabinet by cabinet basis. They developed a base unit that could be customized as per the customer's requirements. This approach resulted in fewer part numbers, simplifying the ordering process. nVent SCHROFF also created an accessory package of identified commonalities for each cabinet to go with whatever configuration was created. This solution not only met the customer's unique cabinet configuration needs but also allowed nVent SCHROFF to provide the best configuration, cost, and cycle time possible to the customer. The successful implementation of this solution led to a strong relationship between nVent SCHROFF and the customer, with the customer expressing satisfaction and willingness to return for all their unique cabinet configuration needs and add-ons.

Predictive Maintenance for Industrial Chillers
For global leaders in the industrial chiller manufacturing, reliability of the entire production process is of the utmost importance. Chillers are refrigeration systems that produce ice water to provide cooling for a process or industrial application. One of those leaders sought a way to respond to asset performance issues, even before they occur. The intelligence to guarantee maximum reliability of cooling devices is embedded (pre-alarming). A pre-alarming phase means that the cooling device still works, but symptoms may appear, telling manufacturers that a failure is likely to occur in the near future. Chillers who are not internet connected at that moment, provide little insight in this pre-alarming phase.
