Eemax® continues to lead the evolution of hot water and is now forging new frontiers with the launch of ProSeries XTP. Using breakthrough Adaptive Stability Technology™ comprised of AST-Flex Power and AST-Dynamic Power, the ProSeries XTP models provide eXact Thermal Performance in demanding conditions. ProSeries XTP is the ideal hot water solution for a variety of commercial and industrial applications that require water temperatures up to 180°F.

“At Eemax, we are consistently innovating and developing leading-edge tankless electric water heating technologies for our customers, their clients’ vital water heating needs, and how we can make these technologically advanced solutions easy to install, efficient, laser-precise, and energy-saving,” says Jens Bolleyer, Eemax® VP and General Manager. “Our Adaptive Stability Technology™ is truly a breakthrough, utilizing AST-Dynamic Power components to adjust to dynamic flow situations and using AST-Flex Power to adjust the power applied to individual elements in a staggered manner, temporarily misbalancing the power factor between elements, enabling faster time to temperature while minimizing over or undershoot. The result is a level of precision so vitally needed in commercial and industrial applications.”

The product family features Eemax Adaptive Stability Technology (AST) to assess the heater conditions and shift the unit operation to ensure a consistent and reliable output. This is accomplished with AST-Flex Power and AST-Dynamic Power AST-Smart Calibration. Flex Power technology adjusts the power applied to individual elements in a staggered manner; this temporarily shifts the power factor between elements. Dynamic Power technology adapts to variable flow situations by adjusting the power factor applied to all elements equally. AST-Flex Power and AST-Dynamic Power allows for a faster time-to-temperature and minimizes overshoot and undershoot. ProSeries XTP delivers unparalleled thermal performance and precision.

For simplified installation, ProSeries XTP units only require a single input water line, either hot or cold. The units are compact in size, allowing for a more flexible install without occupying valuable floor space. The fittings are common plumbing connections and all units come with a custom mounting bracket. Self-diagnostics with intelligent controls actively protect the heater in the installed environment. SafeStart™ technology engages upon start-up to help avoid dry-fire occurrence. Self-modulating technology saves energy and eliminates standby heat loss by activating the heater only on demand. The digital LED display provides an easily navigated user interface and communicates detailed system status, and operation feedback. Other premium performance features include robust copper heating elements and a stainless-steel heating chamber for corrosion resistance, efficiency, and durability.

Among the range of sizes available, Eemax ProSeries XTP models include:

New GlideSafe™ Load Assist System Improves Loading and Unloading while Protecting Vehicle

WEATHER GUARD®, an industry leader in truck and van equipment, introduces the WEATHER GUARD® All-Purpose Steel Van Rack and GlideSafe™ Load Assist accessory. The new all-purpose van rack delivers a heavy-duty, versatile solution for storing and transporting materials and tools to the jobsite. The WEATHER GUARD® van rack can be installed in under an hour and is compatible with all commercial cargo vans sold in the U.S. and Canada.

“When loading and unloading large equipment like ladders, pipes and lumber, it’s critical to have a van rack that will support a variety of applications,” said Adam Molberger, Senior Product Manager for WEATHER GUARD® Van. “When designing the new all-purpose van rack, we wanted to address some of the industry challenges like installation and durability. The WEATHER GUARD® All-Purpose Steel Van Rack, can be paired with the GlideSafe™ Load Assist System to preserve the longevity of both the vehicle and equipment.”

The new GlideSafe™ Load Assist System creates a safer, easier loading and unloading process and does not require a rolling motion to be functional or protect the vehicle and equipment from damage. But that is not the only van accessory that can be paired with the new WEATHER GUARD® van racks. Ready-to-mount Ratchet Straps can also be integrated to provide an easy to use solution for securing loads to the rack. Accessories come with all the necessary mounting hardware and do not require drilling.

The WEATHER GUARD® All-Purpose Steel Van Rack is ideal not only for storing ladders and scaffolding, but also conduit, pipes and sheet materials like plywood or drywall. Because loading and unloading equipment can cause damage to the vehicle, WEATHER GUARD® created GlideSafe™ Load Assist to equip the user with built-in protection. The GlideSafe™ Load Assist system bridges the gap from the back of the van to the rear cross member, which assists in loading and unloading materials. The WEATHER GUARD® All-Purpose Steel Van Rack includes multiple hook and loop tie down straps for securing items to the rack, ladder stop and ladder guide. The WEATHER GUARD® All-Purpose Steel Van Rack comes with airfoil to reduce road and wind noise and a protective strip across each cross member that helps to prevent damage to equipment when the van is in motion. Accessories bolt directly to the rack using preformed holes and come with all necessary mounting hardware. The van rack attaches to the OEM mounting points on the van, making it possible to fully install the rack in under an hour without any cutting or drilling required. The All-Purpose Steel Van Rack can also mount to optional roof mounting channels for flexible cross member positioning.

The WEATHER GUARD® All-Purpose Steel Van Rack offers a variety of mounting and accessory options for increased versatility including: the GlideSafe™ Load Assist system, cross members, Ratchet Straps with mounting brackets, a Ladder Guide and a Ladder Stop. The WEATHER GUARD® All-Purpose Steel Van Rack is constructed of welded, heavy-duty steel and finished with an ARMOR TUF™ powder coat paint for long-term durability. The full-size, 3 cross member van rack has a 1,000 lb. load capacity, however WEATHER GUARD® reminds you to always follow OEM roof capacity requirements per specific van make and model.

The new All-Purpose Van Rack is now available nationally. To learn more, please visit: www.weatherguard.com.
