Frost & Sullivan Commends AIRSYS for Developing a Comprehensive Range of Cooling Solutions. AIRSYS has built a sterling reputation for flexibility in meeting unique customer requirements and offering the best value for

Based on its recent analysis of the cooling solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes AIRSYS with the 2015 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Line Strategy Leadership. AIRSYS’ industry-leading product li
ne addresses all the cooling requirements of both commercial and industrial businesses with its superior reliability, energy savings, extensive working range, precise control and extended lifetime. The company has fully leveraged the technological advantages and breadth of its products and solutions to expand its geographic footprint outside of China, its home market.

AIRSYS’ product line comprises computer room AC (CRAC) units, free cooling chillers, free cooling dry coolers, ice storage tanks, in-row units, in-rack units, adiabatic cooling units and monitoring systems. They have found application in data centers, telecom, healthcare, manufacturing and industrial process control centers, and are ideal for precision environment facilities such as museums, wine cellars, libraries, laboratories, calibration chambers and machine shops. Strategically, AIRSYS has sharpened its focus on the data center and telecom segments by developing new products with advanced technologies for them.

“AIRSYS has a truly optimized product portfolio, as its products have the prices and functionality range to suit every business need,” said Frost & Sullivan Senior Industry Analyst Gautham Gnanajothi. “It offers both cost-effective products targeting customers in developing economies as well as highly sophisticated, energy-efficient, and intelligently controlled products for customers in developed countries.”

Indeed, the company has specifically engineered products for markets such as India and Africa at nearly half the price of competing products without compromising quality and reliability. Simultaneously, it has highlighted its technology and innovation prowess in its products for customers in developed countries such as the US, UK and Germany.FrostSullivan

The company has a strong R&D team with more than 90 registered patents. It employs electronically commutated motors in all its fans, which increase the energy efficiency on a cubic scale by drastically reducing energy consumption. Its unique supply air pressure control system aids automatic adjustment of the fan speed to lower the fan’s energy consumption.

AIRSYS’ use of DC inverter compressors in its products also enhances energy efficiency, especially when operating at partial load conditions. Similarly, to control the super-heat of the refrigeration circuit precisely, it uses electronic expansion valves (EEV) as opposed to thermal expansion valves, which, in turn, improves system efficiency by another 3 percent to 5 percent. The other notable energy-saving technology in its products is the refrigerant pumping group, which facilitates the circulation of refrigerant during winter, bypassing compressor functions.

AIRSYS has implemented a thorough quality assurance system in all its business processes, with its products receiving both international and regional certifications. Its air-cooled chiller (with free cooling) employs a patented three-way adjustment technology, while its precision AC with built-in, fresh-air, free cooling system adopts an integrated design that eliminates the need for a connection among the cooling pipelines.

“We are excited to recognize AIRSYS for its product line strategy, which has been honed by deep insight into the product needs and demands of its customers in the global cooling solutions market. AIRSYS has leveraged its technological strengths and optimized its product line to serve the broadest range of industrial and commercial customers,” said Frost & Sullivan Global President and Managing Partner Krishna Srinivasan.

The AIRSYS brand is becoming highly popular in international markets, which has been pivotal to its efforts to expand outside its home market. Its commitment to providing unparalleled customer satisfaction and leading-edge technologies will go a long way in helping the company replicate its domestic success in the global market.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a comprehensive product line that caters to the breadth of the market it serves. The award recognises the extent to which the product line meets customer base demands, the overall impact it has in terms of customer value, as well as increased market share.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.

Tempest’s AIRSYS high efficiency HVAC Wall Pack Unit (WPU) Recognized as a Finalist for CTIA E-Tech Award Category: Innovation in Green Telecom & Smart Energy Solutions, Apps & Hardware 

Santa Barbara, CA (April 30, 2012) – Tempest Telecom Solutions’ line of AIRSYS HVAC solutions was named a finalist in the Green Telecom & Smart Energy Solutions Category of CTIA’s annual Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards competition. The CTIA E-Tech Awards honor the most innovative new products in 15 categories spanning the areas of mobile apps, consumer electronics, enterprise and infrastructure. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, May 9 at 2:00 p.m. at International CTIA WIRELESS in New Orleans.

Hundreds of entries were judged by a panel of industry experts, media and analysts and scored on innovation, functionality, technological importance, implementation and overall “wow” factor. Tempest’s AIRSYS HVAC Wall Pack Unit (WPU) for equipment shelters is the most energy efficient wall packaged HVAC available by utilizing an innovative air handling technique. The unique architecture and design reduces the energy consumed by 20-40% and by as much as 80% when combined with free cooling in a cold weather climate, allowing carriers to operate a much more green base station infrastructure by using less energy and saving a significant amount of operating expense dollars.

“Tempest is committed to delivering best-in-class products and solutions that help our customers build, expand and maintain their networks, quickly and more cost effectively,” said Jessica Firestone, Chief Executive Officer of Tempest. “Being selected as a finalist for E-Tech’s Green Telecom & Smart Energy Solutions Category further recognizes the value that Tempest brings to our customers.”
