Aisle Containment

Aisle Containment

Room Level

Following the same principle as in-rack air management, the management and segregation of air in a room environment can offer some significant improvements in cooling effectiveness and efficiency helping to significantly reduce operational costs.

Eaton offers a complete range of passive room level air management options including contained aisle and ducted return plenums. Combining our in-rack air management products and our in-room solutions, our racks can be configured to offer the most efficient rack platforms available in todays market. Whether you are looking to manage a simple Data Room or a large Data Centre, we have an air management solution to suit your application.

Un-Contained

Un-contained systems allow supply air to bypass the rack. Bypass air provides no cooling effect to the equipment and reduces the ambient room temperature, reducing cooling plant efficiency.

Contained

Contained segregation avoids the mixing of supply and return air ensuring maximum equipment cooling effectiveness and efficiency. Supply air only has one direction to flow and that's through the active equipment.

RE Series - Aisle Containment POD systems

Eaton's aisle containment systems for the RE & RA Series racks delivers energy saving airflow management for small to medium data centre applications. Designed for fast and easy installation, these aisle containment systems provide an affordable solution for energy saving cold aisle containment installations. These completely modular systems allow extensions or reconfigurations as a pod changes or expands. The systems attach to 42U or 47U high Eaton RE Series and RA Series racks, and span 1200mm wide aisles. Roof panels connect to equal-width racks on either side of the aisle, and can be cut to install fire suppression systems. There are 2 systems to choose from, depending on functional requirement and budgetary constraints;

  1. A split swing-door system with fixed roof panels.
  2. A sliding door system with fixed or active roof panels.

Sliding Door System with Fixed or Active Roof Panels

RE Aisle Containment System

This sliding door system is designed for fast and easy installation where the end-user requires an efficient cold aisle containment solution with space-saving sliding doors and roof panels which can either be fixed or active. Active roof panels have the ability to automatically open in the event of a trigger from the Building Management System for example. Note; this system does not require the removal of the RE/RA Series rack castors. For active roof installations, 1 Active Roof Master (RAACMR0612B or RAACMR0812B) must be ordered, with the remaining active roof panels to be Active Roof Slave ( RAACSR0612B or RAACSR0812B) panels. The active roof system must be wired into the Building Management System or alternative control system to enable the operation of the active roofs. The active roof panels will open when power is cut to them.

End-of-Row door kits include:

  • Split, sliding-style door pre-assembled with toughened glass window.
  • Door frame/header assembly.
  • All hardware to attach doors to IT rack and floor.

Roof panel kits include:

  • Acrylic panel.
