Rittal offers thermal analysis service for data centres' climate-control systems
Thermal analysis service
Rittal is offering a thermal analysis service for data centres, which will help companies to identify and resolve climate-control system defects.
According to the company, around 18 per cent of the energy costs of data centres result from cooling systems.
Additionally, the temperature in the server rack and/or data centre plays a large role in determining hardware functionality and the energy efficiency of IT infrastructures. If temperatures are too high, systems are more likely to fail and energy costs for cooling increase.
Rittal uses thermal analysis for visualising, documenting and tackling the weaknesses that cause these issues.
The company measures the temperature of the cold air at the air inlet of each server rack — in a vertical pitch of 100–200mm — in order to determine rack surface temperatures.
- Customers receive a detailed written report
- Measurement results are clearly displayed in tables and graphs
- Results can be used for putting in place measures to improve climate control
Rittal’s RiLine60 shrouded busbar system has been developed to distribute power up to 1,600A. Featuring a range of adapters, the system is designed to give design engineers total flexibility. RiLine60 is suitable for power switchgear systems and automation control panels.
At this year’s Hanover Fair, Rittal unveiled its new operating housings, which have handle strips and are based on the support arm system CP 60/120/180.
Rittal’s new TS 8 isolator door cover, when deployed in tandem with actuation mechanisms, adjacent door locking and interconnecting rods, fulfils all requirements of the UL 508 A standard — a requirement for the North American market.
German manufacturer SHW Werkzeugmaschinen manufactures moving-column machine tools. The company’s machinery includes a 200-ton moving column milling machine, the PowerForce 8, which is used to mill wind turbine stators with an internal diameter of 6.5m. At the heart of the mill is a variable, universal milling head of orthogonal design with a drive power of 90kW and a torque of up to 1,725Nm. SHW relies on the Blue e generation of cooling devices from Rittal to exploit every possible ...
Rittal’s new Liquid Cooling Package (LCP) Hybrid, with a cooling capacity of up to 20kW per rack, comprises a large, high-performance air/water heat exchanger that cools IT components installed inside the server enclosure.
