LONG BEACH, CA. MovinCool, the market leader in portable spot cooling, announces the CM12, a new ceiling-mounted spot-cooling air conditioner; adding a space-saving, permanently installed cooling solution to MovinCool's award-winning, lineup of portable workplace air conditioning products. The CM12 will be available this April, 2006.

Often the main roadblock to the efficient cooling of cramped server telecom and equipment rooms is the lack of floor space to accommodate a roll-in portable spot cooler. MovinCool has solved this problem with the CM12, a lightweight, space-saving, easy-to-install, ceiling-mounted unit.

The CM12 delivers 10,500 Btu/H of cooling in a compact, self-contained unit that mounts easily with standard, off-the-shelf hardware above a standard drop ceiling and requires no special electrical connections, saving time and money.

"Saving space, time and expense for spot cooling has become essential for many businesses with critical equipment operating in confined spaces with no ventilation or air conditioning," according to John Doran, manager of the MovinCool Sales Department. "MovinCool pioneered the concept of workspace spot cooling with its portable units," Doran added, "and now, with the CM12, offers an out-of-the-way ceiling mount solution that will certainly save our customers time and money, as well as space."

The new CM12 comes with a variety of built-in capabilities and safety features:

  • A condensation pump, mounting brackets and both return and supply air flanges are all built-in.
  • The unit can be controlled by an off-the-shelf thermostat and uses off-the-shelf mounting hardware.
  • The unit can be wired into the building controls.
  • Automatic shut-off is controlled from a common fire alarm control panel.

Also, the CM12 has a wide operating range of 60º to 95ºF on the evaporator and 60º to 113ºF on the condenser. Separate ducts for supply and return air provide more air movement, improved circulation and more efficient cooling, even in tight spaces.

Warning signals and audible alarms for condensation overflow and unscheduled shutdown are built-in and can be wired to a central location. And an optional air intake plenum and exhaust flange for rooms without a drop ceiling.

In addition to the CM12, MovinCool offers the Office Pro lineup, a seamless series of portable spot cooling solutions that will fit any requirement. MovinCool portable spot cooling solutions offer more units, more power, more protection, more affordability and higher cooling capacities than most comparable portable air conditioners up to 60,000 BTU/h.

MovinCool is a brand of DENSO, one of the world's largest manufacturers of automotive parts, robotics and spot coolers. The company pioneered the idea of portable cooling systems to meet its own automotive factory needs in Japan.
