Keep your Valuable Audio Video Components Cool

July 11, 2012 Leave a comment

Active Thermal Management 00-120-02 Cool-cube E, with 6-Feet of 2-Inch TubingThe Active Thermal 00-120-02 Cool-cube E (replacing the original Cool-cube) was developed for the home theater design and installation community. Combining a compact power module with either 2-inch, 3-inch or 4-inch flexible tubing, Cool-cube E will pull heated air out of a closed mid-size cabinet, small closet, or enclosed video projector, holding a typical home theater system and quietly move it to a nearby closet, utility room, crawl space, etc. The power module measures 6″ x 6″ x 10″ and is powerful enough to move a useful amount of air through tubing thin enough to snake through all but the most crowded cabinets.

The Cool-cube E features a new control system, activated by a remote temperature-sensing probe, with field-adjustable temperature set-points and speeds. In normal operation, the fans should run at low speed only; operation for significant periods at high speed may indicate that the Cool-cube is either underpowered for the amount of heat to be removed, or cannot breathe freely due to an intake opening that is too small. The noise level generated is low in keeping with the Active Thermal policy of not ‘trading a heat problem for a noise problem’.

Cool-cube’s power module is typically placed at the exhaust end of the tubing. A compact hot air collector, or flange, is provided at the suction end of the tubing, and is easily connected to a flat surface, such as the back of a cabinet.

Order the Cool-cube with 4″ tubing if clearance allows, or with 3″ or 2″ tubing for those really tight situations. As little as 12 CFM of air movement means that the air in a typical 4′ x 3′ x 2′ cabinet will be changed every two minutes. (This assumes free air flow; real-world installations will take somewhat longer for an air exchange).

Boost Existing (but Insufficient) Ventilation for Audio and Video Components

Active Thermal Management 01-008-03 Cool-slim Component Cooler

The Active Thermal Management 01-008-03 Cool-slim Component Cooler is designed to boost existing (but insufficient) ventilation for audio and video components. Very slim, it will solve overheating problems where components sit on closely-spaced shelves. Its 1 9/16″ height can be reduced to 1 5/16″ by removing the Cool-slim’s feet. It will cool components with and without vent openings in their top covers, and is temperature-controlled. The Cool-slim Component Cooler is placed on top of a hot component and will cool it quietly. Some types of audio-video equipment have ventilation openings on their top surface while others do not; Cool-slim can cool either type. Hot air is drawn from the component and exhausted through its front and rear openings.

The Cool-slim Component Cooler was designed to cool components in an open, or partially open, environment such as on a shelf, in a bookcase, or in a cabinet with no doors and/or an open back. It cannot cool components in sealed enclosures; it would just circulate the same hot air within the enclosure, providing little cooling.

Slide-Out Rotating Rack Fits in Entertainment Centers for Easy Component Management

May 15, 2011 Leave a comment

48in Sliding/Rotating Rack Shelf System
Entertainment centers are a convenient option for storing and managing A/V components, but installing and maintaining these electronics can be difficult, since the cables connecting them are all in the back, where it’s hard to maneuver. This 48-Inch Sliding/Rotating Rack System is designed to solve the challenges of easily accessing equipment and connecting cables, as well as to reduce installation time. By sliding out the entire rack mount system and rotating it 60 degrees in either direction for easy access to the components’ rear, you’ll save time and effort.

Ideal for custom cabinetry, millwork and entertainment centers, the 48-Inch Sliding/Rotating Rack System provides an aesthetically pleasing solution for rack mounting electronic components that will complement any décor. Equally suited for entertainment centers or in-wall installation, the 48-Inch Sliding/Rotating Rack System combines the functionality of a professional rack mount system with the simplicity of adjustable shelves.

Installation is easy: simply install the self-centering base in your entertainment center, place your components on the seven included shelves, and make the connections. The rack includes a complete cable management system, and the shelves even accommodate power strips. The racks lock closed to prevent rack-mounted equipment from sliding out. Read more
