The Weiss Technik Module-R type C-SP mobile air conditioning containers are a split system consisting of the evaporator module inside the unit, and the condenser unit outside. These two modules are connected by a quick release, leak-free coupling for the cooling liquid and strong connectors for the power supply. This system is particularly handy for areas where NBC protection measures (ColPro) are necessary.  
The Weiss Technik Module-R type T-C mobile tent air conditioning system is installed external of the tent. The evaporator module and condenser module are also arranged outside of the tent. Up to two Module-R systems can be stacked vertically.
The Weiss Technik STA 3-A brine temperature control unit was designed with antenna systems and high-end electronics in mind. The unit has two separate cooling circuits for antenna brine cooling allowing for a constant temperature of +5°C and direct temperature control of the workspace. NBC (Colpro) protection is available for this unit. Cooling and heating capacity are both 9kW.
The Weiss Technik STA 6-A brine temperature control unit is not a split system, but a compact system for cooling high-end electronics and antennae systems. Like the ST-A5 the controller module can be integrated into a 19” rack and controlled from the operator room. The operational temperature range is -40°C to +55°C, the system will reliably cools a constant water glycol volume to +5°C, with a cooling capacity up to 14 kW.
