Gentherm To Introduce New Thermal Conditioning System For Beds, Heated And Cooled Home Furniture At International Show

Chinese Show Is Asia's Largest Furniture Supplier Trade Fair

NORTHVILLE, Mich. and GUANGZHOU, China, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gentherm Incorporated (NASDAQ-GS: THRM), the global market leader and a developer of innovative thermal management technologies, announced today that it will introduce a new entry level thermal conditioning system for beds and Climate Control System for home furniture at the 2014 China International Furniture Machinery & Furniture Raw Material Fair, Asia's largest furniture supplier trade fair.  The Fair will be held from March 28-April 1 in Guangzhou, China.

Gentherm technology on display in the Gentherm booth (Hall 15.1, Booth H09) will include a new Heat Vent Sleep System (HVSS) installed in mattresses; the Climate Control Sleep System™ (CCSS™) already on the market in mattresses; a new Climate Control System for Furniture featured for the first time in an attractive sofa and a Heat Vent office chair with battery power for unrestricted mobility already on the market.  All products thermally condition personal environment rather than entire rooms, and utilize proven technology installed in millions of automotive seats.

"We continue to see significant opportunities for our thermal heating and cooling and ventilating technologies," said President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel R. Coker.  "We are targeting the furniture and bedding markets in particular because of the increasing desire of consumers for comfort along with the ability to actively control their own environment.  We see these very large furniture fairs as an important opportunity to introduce our products and showcase the ways our technology can bring value to these large, global markets."

HVSS, Gentherm's new entry level thermal conditioning system for beds, is a sister product to the Company's CCSS for mattresses.  Both systems create a micro-climate for each side of the bed via individual remotes and save energy by conditioning the bed rather than the entire room.  HVSS uses active heating and passive ventilation cooling while CCSS uses solid state thermoelectric devices to thermally condition ambient room air. 

Climate Control Systems for furniture allow for 3 levels of active heating and active cooling via a wired remote and are available for a single surface (cushion) or dual surfaces (cushion + back). 

The China International Furniture Machinery & Furniture Raw Materials Fair is recognized as the largest and most comprehensive furniture supplier fair in Asia, with the aim of offering an "all-in-one package manufacturing solution" for the furniture production industry.

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Today every business relies on software to drive the innovation necessary for a competitive edge in the Application Economy. This is why collaboration between development and operations, or DevOps, has become IT’s number one priority. Whether you are in Dev or Ops, understanding how to implement a DevOps strategy can deliver faster development cycles, improved software quality, reduced deployment times and overall better experiences for your customers.
The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
