The Office Pro 36 (OP 36) workplace air conditioning product is designed to deliver 36,000 Btuh of cooling, making it appropriate for offices, schools, health care facilities, and other areas with servers, routers, telecom, or other heat-sensitive equipment and workspaces up to 2,400 square feet. Features include low-temperature operation for heat-sensitive equipment; a standard AFCI plug, a safety feature designed to protect against electrical arcing; and easy-to-use programmable controls. An optional plug-and-play pump can help eliminate the need to manually drain the condensate tank. Continuous running and draining makes after-hours operation "simple and efficient," said the company. The OP 36 can handle heat buildup in equipment rooms and "dead areas" central air conditioning can't reach. It can be moved from place to place as needed. The OP 36 is self-contained and plugs into a 230-V outlet.
