Precision cooling unit is designed for servers
Emerson Network Power - Adaptive Power and Cooling
Emerson Network Power has announced Liebert CRV, a new precision cooling unit designed for servers located in the server rooms and data centres of SMBs.
The unit - to be installed between the racks - requires no specific cooling knowledge and fits into any server room layout required by system administrators.
Placed in a hot aisle/cold aisle layout, Liebert CRV draws air from the hot aisle, filters it, conditions it, and finally delivers it to the cold aisle, to the front of servers and other IT devices.
Cooled air can be directed to the right, to the left or to both sides, as required, by means of integrated adjustable diffusers.
Its features make Liebert CRV particularly suitable as the single conditioning solution for the typical SMB processing environment that does not exceed 100m2 with a maximum of 30 racks.
The Emerson Network Power unit can, however, also be used in larger data centres to eliminate hotspots, for instance resulting from the implementation of high-density solutions.
Liebert CRV can adapt to the load: cooling capacity as well as electricity consumption are always proportional to the actual demand of servers.
Through integrated iCOM software and temperature sensors in the racks, Liebert CRV constantly monitors the thermal load generated by the IT equipment and automatically adjusts its operation to deliver only the cooling power required, without excess.
With Liebert CRV, SMBs can achieve a substantial increase of energy efficiency, reducing the operating costs of IT environments.
These savings are enhanced by electronic switching fans and Digital Scroll technology, both controlled by iCOM, which respectively modulate the airflow capacity and the compressor operation according to the actual requirements of the computing infrastructure.
Liebert CRV is available in sizes from 22kW to 36kW for direct expansion versions and 44kW for chilled-water versions.
Rittal is offering a large range of cooling products that are suitable for addressing the problem of overheating panels. The company’s TopTherm fan-and-filter units, for example, provide an energy efficient means of cooling enclosures but require a clean and cool environment to operate effectively.
From 1 January 2015, it will be illegal to use any recycled or reclaimed ozone-depleting hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) R22 refrigerant gas to service cooling units. Rittal is urging companies to seek out suitable replacement products. The company’s climate control range includes enclosure cooling units with outputs from 300W to 4,000W and water chillers with capacities between 1kW and 481kW.
Mouser Electronics has entered into a global distribution agreement with power supply manufacturer Cosel. Cosel’s product portfolio includes high-quality, ultra-small-size AC/DC switching supplies, DC/DC converters, and EMI filters.
Rittal International Service offers tailored service agreements to protect production processes and safeguard productivity that will maintain the value of equipment and systems, minimise downtime and allow costs to be managed over the long term.
Rittal’s energy-efficient cooling technology has helped Node4 dramatically reduce PUE at its data centre in Northampton. Working with Rittal, Node4 was able to maximise IT floor space using Coolwall technology, cold aisle containment and Rittal’s TS IT racks, along with managed power distribution units.
