Benefits of the Smaller Design of the GH180

Posted by Advanced Controls & Distribution on Mar 14, 2017 8:20:43 AM

Space is always at a premium.

Whether it be at home or at a very large industrial complex, space is always at a premium. We start out with a layout which has plenty of space for expansion but soon, and invariably, we start running out of space. There often is a need to replace a faulty piece of equipment, and commonly the new equipment will not fit into the available space.
