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 infrastructure solutions are playing a vital part in the development of renewable energy as solar energy generation expands into more extreme environments.
Rittal has announced that its RiLine, Maxi-PLS and Flat-PLS busbar systems have passed stringent testing enabling them to be integrated within Ri4Power modular switchgear systems and used on board ships in designated sealed areas, such as engine rooms.
According to Rittal, designers and technical buyers in mechanical engineering can now plan machinery and process cooling more easily than ever thanks to the new Rittal TopTherm Configurator.
Rittal is offering the Perforex LC 3015 3D laser centre from Kiesling, expanding the performance range of its Perforex enclosure machining centres. As well as machining panels, manufacturers of controllers and switchgear can now quickly process complete housings such as the AE compact enclosure and the TS 8 enclosure system.
Rittal has launched a modular Ri4Power busbar system with a 185mm busbar centre distance. The Ri4Power is suitable for configuring compact, secure power distribution within Ri4Power switchgear systems or Rittal’s TS 8 enclosure range.
