Active Air Management

Active Air Management

Most legacy Data Room designs incorporating under floor or plenum fed cooling have been designed to support thermal loads of 2kW to 4kW per rack. The need to maximise space utilisation and accommodate increased IT and thermal loads is resulting in rack equipment densities of more than 4kW becoming the norm.

Managing heat is critical in avoiding downtime, reducing energy consumption and ultimately improving PUE. Eaton offers a comprehensive range of air management, active and passive cooling products to suit any Data Centre application.

In-Rack rack heat exchangers
In-rack heat exchanger

Eaton's range of in-rack heat exchangers are ideal for rooms with or without a floor void. Providing true flexibility these within rack units remove the need to pre-plan or over provision cooling at day one. Offering the ability to truly scale the cooling provision to match demand these units provide the perfect balance of CAPEX and OPEX and can provide up to 12% more useable mounting space when compared to other leading manufacturers solutions.

  • Designed for chilled water cooling
  • Can be set up in open loop or closed loop configurations
  • Can be deployed in rooms with or without raised floor plenums
  • Can be deployed with contained aisle configurations
  • Rack mounted control drawer options include either two system or four system connectivity
  • Hot swap fans
  • Available in configurations from 10kW - 75kW
Perimeter CRAC Heat Exchangers
Perimeter CRAC heat exchanger

Available in a range of models and configurations including SmartCool™ EasiCool™ and AlphaCool™ platforms. Provides a solution to meet most customer needs

  • Available in chilled water or DX configurations
  • Available in configurations from 6kW - 233kW to suit every application from a small computer room to a large data hall
  • Designed for optimised power efficiency including free cooling technology
Above Row Heat Exchangers
Above row heat exchanger

Available in a range of models and configurations including SmartCool™ The high efficiency ECHO IT cooling system operates with air volumes 50% less than traditional cooling systems. It comprises an ECHO ACE (Active Cabinet Exhaust) unit, CRAC unit, free cooling chiller and control system.

  • Available in chilled water or DX configurations
  • Can be set up as open loop or closed
  • Can be deployed in rooms with or without raised floor plenums
  • Available in configurations from 2kW - 20kW
REar Door Heat Exchanger
Rear door heat exchanger

The OnRak™ is a resilient rear door heat exchanger, designed to manage discharge temperatures directly from the server into the aisle space. Ideal for dealing with hot spots, the OnRak™ takes full advantage of the high temperatures, increasing the efficiency of the cooling system and raising the free-cooling potential when integrated with a free-cooling chiller.

  • Designed for chilled water cooling
  • Adds 200mm to the overall depth of the rack assembly
  • Available in two configurations: (n) 35kW cooling (100% air volume): optional (n+1) 30kW cooling (75% air volume)
  • Hot swap fans
  • Suits rack sizes from 42U - 47U
Side Mounted In-Rack Row Heat Exchangers
Side mounted in-rack row heat exchanger

Ideal for rooms with or without a floor void and offering more cooling/m than a CRAC unit, the 10 - 60kW InRak™ in-row cooler is also extremely versatile. It can be positioned within a row of six 10kW server cabinets in a medium density room, for example, or sit between two 30kW racks in a higher density area. The InRakā„¢ directs cold air horizontally to the front of the server racks, which acts like a curtain, providing even cooling top and bottom and maintaining pressure.

  • Available in chilled water or DX configurations
  • Can be set up in open loop or closed loop configurations
  • Can be deployed in rooms with or without raised floor plenums
  • Can be deployed with contained aisle configurations
  • Available with dual or static switch power feeds
  • Available in configurations from 10kW - 60kW
