This type of cooling option is becoming more and more popular with our customers. If you contain the heat, you eliminate the need for large CRAC units and ventilation systems. The EcoAisle is an intelligent thermal containment solution designed to increase cooling system efficiency while protecting critical IT equipment and personnel. The Active Flow Control (AFC) availble in the EcoAisle provides the intelligence to communicate to the cooling system in order to right size the cooling airflow to match the load of the IT equipment providing a reduction in fan energy over conventional cooling systems. The Eco Aisle system adapts to varying rack heights, aisle widths, and rack depths to support either hot or cold aisle containment. The Air Return System of the EcoAisle provides a centralized hot air return path for room based CRAC/CRAH units or external air handling systems. The optional UL723s listed Fire Safe System uses temperature sensors to drop ceiling panels in the event of a fire. The Fire Safe System can also be used in conjunction with a field supplied smoke detector to activate in the event smoke is detected with the aisle. EcoAisle provides a safe and efficient environment for IT equipment and personnell incorporating additional features for high efficiency LED lighting with motion detection. EcoAisle can be deployed in zones or modules to gain the benefit at either the rack or row level.
In-row cooling applications greatly reduce the cost of cooling a data center. They can be installed in a number of different ways to be most effective in your data center.
Our line of Schneider Electric in-row coolers are user friendly and can be monitored on your infrastructure network. It's versatility surpasses anything on the market today. More floor space can be used for racks and servers and internal communication allows your high density loads to be cooled by surrounding In-row coolers and not by In-row coolers on the other side of your data center. In-row coolers can be utilized in Hot-Aisle containment environments which will eliminate total room cooling and only focus cooling where it is needed most.
Give us a call today and we will be more than happy to talk about what solutions are best for your cooling environment.
Maybe you already have a traditional cooling system or your cooling needs work best with a traditional system. We offer a variety of cooling solutions that best fit your specific needs. With room-based cooling, the CRAH units are associated with the room and operate concurrently to address the total heat load of the room. Room-based cooling may consist of one or more air conditioners supplying cool air completely unrestricted by ducts, dampers, vents, etc. or the supply and/or return may be partially constrained by a raised floor system or overhead return plenum.
