APC by Schneider Electric, a global leader in integrated power and cooling services, has introduced the APC InRoom Perimeter Cooling Solutions, providing high reliability for year_round operation, with the ease of service, system flexibility and redundancy necessary to keep critical technology rooms up and running.
â€œIndustry needs are affecting IT requirements at an exponential rate with variables such as increasing loads and electrical costs creating challenges forÂ IT and facility managers,â€Â Carl Kleynhans, regional director: Africa, Indian Ocean Islands and South Caribbean at APC by Schneider Electric said in a sttement.
â€œTo meet these needs, APCâ€™s complete InRoom line of perimeter cooling solutions cools up to 5kW per rack, maintains humidity, cools non_racked IT loads and runs ten percent more efficiently than other perimeter units through the use of electronically commutated (EC) fan technology.â€ he added.Â APCâ€™s InRoom Perimeter Cooling solutions, he saidÂ enable monitoring and maintenance of temperature and humidity design conditions, critical to the smooth operation of a data centre or computer room.
Tight tolerance temperature control is essential as temperature fluctuations can cause thermal stresses and premature failures in IT equipment.
Low humidity can cause static discharge and high humidity can cause condensation _ both extremes creating treacherous conditions for IT and networking equipment.
Additionally, the APC InRoom Perimeter Cooling solutions are highly manageable with controls to ensure optimised operation, alarms to provide visibility into the health of the unit and an easy to use display allowing the operator to select options from the deviceâ€™s menu_driven interface to control and monitor the connected air conditioning system.
The benefits of APCâ€™s InRoom leading edge precision cooling solutions also include: Modular construction that allows flexibility and adaptability; EC fan modules which increase fan efficiency by up to 30 percent while reducing operating costs; Anti_vibration mounting to isolate the fan module from the unit structure;
Dedicated de_humidification and scroll compressors in select models to maximise efficiency; Front service access and proactive alarm functions which make for easily serviceable units; andÂ A scalable design, which enables customers to meet the changing needs of their environments.
APC InRoom cooling solutions are available in both Chilled Water and Direct Expansion (DX), with the DX units being available in air_, water_, and glycol_cooled, as well as multicool and economiser options. Available in both upflow or downflow configurations, as well as a multitude of other options, InRoom cooling solutions are built to suit specific customer needs.
