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 has launched the ISV series of wall-mounted distribution enclosures that offer the flexibility to assemble enclosures that will accept DIN rail-mounted devices.
Already introduced in 2012 in the 100mm-high version, Rittal’s Flex-Block plinth is now available in a 200mm-high version.
Rittal has introduced a range of enclosure heaters to help prevent the temperature of delicate electronic equipment from falling to a level at which condensation occurs. According to the company, this is arguably as important as providing cooling during warmer periods.
Rittal has launched a new PC enclosure that has an internally glazed door and a lockable keyboard drawer to provide increased protection against unauthorised access.
Rittal has introduced its Micro Data Centre Level E, which it says provides IT infrastructure with reliable and flexible protection.
