Daikin Achieves Higher Efficiencies in New Air Conditioning Systems Fans Using 3D Inverse Design in TURBOdesign1 Software

Global leader in environmental controls read how others improved turbo compressor efficiency using the technology and knew it would work for fans as well.

LONDON and NEW YORK - November 8, 2012 - Advanced Design Technology (ADT), a global leader in the development of advanced turbomachinery design methods and the TURBOdesign Suite, today announces that its customer, Daikin Industries (Daikin), has successfully designed an innovative, more efficient fan for air conditioning units by using the 3D inverse design technology of the TURBOdesign Suite.

"We wanted to improve fan efficiency and did so by using TURBOdesign1," said Toru Iwata, Researcher, Daikin Industries, Environmental Technology Laboratory. "We read how others used the software before to improve compressor efficiencies, so we expected it also would work for fans. It did."

Since 1951, Daikin has provided air conditioners, systems and solution services offering even greater comfort to its global customers. Throughout this time, Daikin has actively confronted global environmental problems as part of its corporate responsibility as a leading global manufacturer of air conditioning equipment. When it came time to develop an innovative fan design for a new line of air conditioning units, Daikin engineers set out to use the latest, most capable technology to develop even more efficient systems. They used the 3D inverse design technology of the TURBOdesign Suite.

"The TURBOdesign Suite provides a more systematic approach to aerodynamic turbomachinery design because once an optimum input specification for a given design criteria (such as minimum loss, cavitation suppression, secondary flow suppression, etc.) has been obtained, it is used to develop new prototypes very rapidly, reducing development time for new designs," said Mehrdad Zangeneh, Ph.D., professor of thermofluids at University College London and founding director of ADT.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
