    PRODUCT DETAILS

    The miniClima Constant Humidity Devices serve to keep the relative air humidity inside a closed case on a constant level without influencing the temperature of the conditioned air. They are used for museum showcases, switchboards, deposit cupboards, containers and similar applications. The essential requirement for efficient operation of the system is that the case should be airtight and manufactured from non-porous materials.

    Additional Information

    The miniClima Constant Humidity Devices „EBC“ serve to keep the relative air humidity inside a closed case on a constant level without influencing the temperature of the conditioned air. They are used for museum showcases, switchboards, deposit cupboards, containers and similar applications. The essential requirement for efficient operation of the system is that the case should be airtight and manufactured from non-porous materials. The case must be connected to the EBC with flexible hoses and screw connectors (all part of the delivery), forming together a tight air circulation system. Also, the miniClima sensor for measuring the temperature and relative humidity must be led inside the case. We use digital sensors and deliver them ready-to-use with housing, cable and RJ45 plug. For the control lines, which are delivered for setting up an EBC chain of one master and one or more slave(s), we use common network cables (twisted pair/non crossed, ferrite cores recommended). Once set into operation, the EBC monitors the air condition inside the case and initiates the appropriate action as soon as it becomes necessary: Dehumidification of the system air by condensing surplus air humidity or humidification of the air by evaporating condensate or distillate. This ensures that the actual humidity level will continuously be brought in line with the set point. The changes in the humidity level are more gradual the closer the actual RH level approaches to the set point. All the while the EBC continually circulates the air between case and EBC - independently from the currently required process. The air is always exhausted from the case, led into the device, where it will be conditioned if required or left untreated otherwise, and then returned back into the case again. The water (actually: distillate and condensate) that is used for the EBC‘s work is recirculated from the bottle to the inside of the EBC and back again repeatedly on both a regular basis and following the requirements of the current process. Through this continuous movement biological growth is virtually eliminated and EBC-induced problems with bacteria formation have never been reported to us. The classification of the units will help the user when he/she wants to rearrange exhibitions, keep a qualified unit on stock, or when he/she needs to provide for at least some humidity control even if the actual master unit fails: Every EBC can become a master and every unit can become a slave. The decision for one of the two hierarchic states is selected automatically dependant upon the type of cable connected to the EBC. If it is the cable from the miniClima RH/T sensor, then the EBC becomes a master controller; if it is the control line coming from another EBC then the unit becomes a slave and will duplicate the function of the EBC that is the first in the line. The alarms that are issued by the EBC refer to the water level of the bottle, to the humidity level being above or below the customer preset levels, the overall water handling system of the EBC, and the presence and quality of the signals coming in from the RH/T sensor or the master unit (i.e. broken cable). If an alarm occurs, the green LED on the front panel turns red and the display informs the user of the alarm status. Each device is equipped with two potential-free switch-over contacts for wiring the EBC with external installations, i.e. in a control room. First, a composite error alarm, and second a signal informing the user about the on/off status of the unit. The user can therefore be ensured of being notified immediately when a non-routine intervention is needed. Furthermore all units of series EBC10/11/12 are shipped with a built-in audible composite error alarm, which can be activated from the menu (default setting is „off“). The miniClima datalogger hardware is part of the control system built into the EBC and is provided with every unit. The software (miniClima Tool), too, is supplied free of charge with each order. All data can be taken from an RS232 interface on the front panel of the EBC. This interface can also be used for administrating and controlling the EBC over a network (see page 8). The distilled water set aside, each device is delivered readyto- install, complete with all required parts including hoses, hose connectors and cables, as well as a documentation CD with detailed user guides.
