Regardless your company’s focus or your customers’ needs, the e-Con Configurator streamlines processes for choosing and designing equipment, down to the most precise details. Current, accurate information about costs, list pricing, weight, and other variables can be generated with a few keystrokes and clicks.
Hot (and cold) challenges and e-Con, the always-cool solution
Cooling and heating components and equipment serve an obvious, broad-based function, but design depends heavily on intended use and installation environment. Cooling a bedroom and cooling a submarine require vastly different design configurations, though the base function might be the same.
As a result, the quote to order process can be thorny. To start, you need to know the cooling or heating capacity required, and the information customers have at hand can vary. Some customers know they need cooler type ‘xyz,’ while others know that they need to cool down an area of 100m2 from 45° to 12° in 90 minutes. Once the capacity is established, the correct cooler and the best fit must be selected. Do we offer one big beast or several smaller ones? What type of coolant do we need to use? These are just two questions from a long list of variables that determine the ultimate design.
Finally, when design has been established, you need to price it. The process might seem linear, but complications are always waiting around the corner. You arrive at an accurate and competitive price and win the deal, only to face production demanding a fast start if they’re to meet delivery time promises. But production can’t begin until all data, items, BOMs and routes are ready in the ERP system.
e-Con: Resolving challenges for the cooling and heating industry
Enabling heating and cooling companies to resolve these challenges is e-Con Solutions’ focus. The e-Con Sales and Product Configurator can make any quote to order process an exercise in speed and accuracy.
- The e-Con rules engine is built to calculate cooling or heating capacity requirements, in particular for complex scenarios.
- If you’re already working with a home-grown program, no worries—your work can be taken to the next level of efficiency and quality. We can easily call or integrate your capacity calculation program in our configurator end, using the outcome as input for e-Con’s design of the cooler or heater.
- Building on cooling capacity and other parameters, e-Con can calculate and determine the exact design for the cooler or heater. Our configurator calculates the number of circuits, fins, fin distance, fan diameter, and all other elements that play a role in design.
