In the world of HVAC installs in commercial buildings, multi-device control configurations are often the norm when it comes to cooling and airflow. While they provide the comfort and functionality a building’s occupants need, they are often far from ideal when it comes to installation, maintenance and overall finished aesthetic.

If this situation sounds familiar, an integrated cooling tower panel could provide a smarter solution. These units, which consist of a drive + pump starter + basin heater starter + a temperature controller in built-to-spec configurations, can accommodate high horsepower systems. They serve as a single-point power control panel that drives the entire tower regardless of the complexity. They combine what is typically handled by multiple control devices all within a single, standard panel.
