Free Cooling Unit from Acme is unique solution for Telecom Operators which provides Lower energy OPEX cost high uptime of Cell Site

Operation. FCU reduces the AC running heat in telecom shelters, cabinets and rooms hours on the telecom site whenever temperture is lower than the shelter Equipment inside the Telecom Shelter can be hosting GSM, UMTSambient or LTE networks.


Free Cooling is the key to unlock substantial energy savings in telecom shelters and rooms. Our free cooling units provide our customers with huge energy savings around the clock and have done so for years. Free Cooling controlled ventilation it removes excess heat from telecom base stations and cools down the shelter or enclosure by use of ambient air. No compressor is involved in free cooling. The free cooling system is significantly more economical in use than air conditioners. One will typically save 70-95% of your energy for cooling by switching to ACMEs free cooling units.

cooled very economically by FCU which will operate for much longer durations thereby reducing the run time of Air Conditioners. FCU allows a shelter to be cooled using cooler outside air and air recirculation methods instead of running compressor based air conditioners at higher energy cost. Continuous Monitoring of temperatures inside and outside allow it to choose the most cost e ff e c t i v e m e t h o d t o m a i n t a i n r o o m temperature. When the FCU cannot use exterior air to cool the shelter, the hybrid control unit of FCU allows the normal Air Conditioning units to turn on and operate as normal, until conditions are met to begin using FCU again. The FCU has the ability to operate its main

Free Cooling Benefits:

Free cooling with low energy consumption savings up to 95% energy - high ROI Flexible installation for both existing and new telecom sites Free Cooling reduces energy consumption, CO2 and carbon footprint Reduced service visits due to large filters and quality components Emergency cooling during power or AC failure

FCU Controller comes with a RS 485 connection for transmitting data through a GPRS modem to remote NOC center. FCU Controller unit is fully protected in the conditions of reverse polarity, surge, voltage, EMI, short circuit. The system comes with the capability Switch ON-Off the controller from remote signal (Digital input, RS 485 and Relay).

FCU Fan-1 will switch on when the shelter temperature exceeds 81 F and maintain the temperature within the desired levels. If the shelter temperature exceeds 91F FCU Fan-2 will start and both fans together will maintain the temperature within the desired limits.

The Controller unit has the capability to manage three HVAC controllers and does the sequencing of HVAC depending on run time to ensure the run hours for 3 ACs are almost same.

Controller Features
The FCU controller comes with a LCD Display which shows the status of equipment, room & ambient temperature, mode of operation, room humidity and fault status.
