These are the possible plate exchanger types to manage
Counter flow plate heat exchanger
Cross flow plate heat exchanger
These are the possible plate qualities to manage
The Optimizing Modes
It is possible to define a fixed model size but it is also possible to give the available space inside a, air handling unit and let the program optimize the best solutions
The Bypass with and without Damper
The calculation can be done with or without bypass, with or without the Bypass damper. in case a Bypass is requested then the Bypass size can be fixed or also optimized by the program having then over the exchanger and over the bypass close thn same pressure drop.
The Exchanger Product Key
The exchanger product key goes programmed regarding your individual requests. Please note that a key must contain ALL options and indication that you will be able then to calculate a price having only the code. In the future a purchase order will contain only the key. So the key must be real complete that you can produce the exchanger without any question to the customer.
You can be sure that we know the base of calculating efficiency data and pressure drops, to handle the humidity chart and a lot more. But we have seen and we are sure that you have many of internal suggestions and requests to implement too.
The blackbox kernel has only a set input and a output functions. Using this function also external programmer are able to implement this blackbox into their own solution. The interlacing DLL is written for DOTNET Framework 4.0 (4.5) with public functions so the link between two systems is very simple. Usually we are delivering also an example in source code and a possible wrapper if someone wants to link the blackbox with an older language.
Very important: al technical and catalog data are saved in a protected mode into some files. The technical data and catalog data and also data need for equations and coefficients (like for efficiency and pressure drop calculation) are available for to modify and to extend. So no programmer is need if you want to change the base data.
The Blackbox kernel contains also a validation and licenses period control so that you can manage where and how long can use the calculation DLL.
You have to create then an excel sheet for price calculation. We are writing the product specifications (the code) into the first excel sheet on this excel file and on the other sheets inside the file you can create with simple IF commands in Excel a dynamic bill of material and price calculation. It is a work but it is quite a simple logic and you will be free to do what you want without programmers help.
Please note that the maybe in excel created bill of material can be transferred to your ERP system using a XML file protocol.
