The deployment of high-density IT equipment is pushing the average enclosure heat load into the 10-15Kw range, forcing a re-thinking of the hot aisle/cold aisle concept. Poor separation between the supply (cold) and return (hot) air has caused many data centres to be oversupplied with more than twice the amount of cold air than is necessary. Yet despite being vastly oversupplied,most data centres still experience "hot spot" issues. Cold air bypass and hot air recirculation initiated by the lack of separation are the cause.
NRB Telecom's Solution for Maximizing Cooling Efficiency
NRB Telecom Adaptive Enclosure Heat Containment (AEHC) Air flow Management System
Allows for 100 percent utilization of the existing cooling infrastructure, eliminating the oversupply of cold air.
Allows the lowering of the oversupply ratio from a typical 2.5 to 1.2 range, optimizing the use of available cooling to allow the deployment of more IT equipment within the same footprint.
Pressure-based control system provides for real-time balancing of supply and return air.
