So, the supply duct is going down, the return duct is coming right back, the fresh air is adding in, and then this little zone over here is where we're trying to get that outside air to sort of blow through and so we've got a little zone here to encourage evaporation and loss of the heat in order to get rid of the heat out to the outside space. So, this little single system has all of those different little components built right into it and that funny shape is about protecting that outside air intake from any rain or anything along those lines. You'll sometimes see they'll have a little baffle system down at the bottom here in order to help stop if you get rain kind of bouncing down and coming up in, so, they're really set up as in a way to be very compact and efficient, you wanna them as small as possible so you can crane them easily, you wanna be able to get the air in the one side and then this other side, it's less worrying about whether any moisture gets in there 'cause you really, it's not really connected with any of the air that's gonna make its way down into the building.
