Modular and high density air conditioning
InfraStruXure InRow RC
The predictable solution for an unpredictable environment. Data center heat densities continue to increase, making it more difficult to provide adequate cooling. To ensure proper airflow paths the distance between the heat source and heat removal system must decrease. The in-row concept closely couples cooling with heat load, preventing exhaust air recirculation to sensitive IT equipment. The InfraStruXure InRow RC is a computer room air conditioning system designed for installation in the row to maximize sensible cooling and increase efficiency. The unit captures heat directly from the hot aisle and distributes cool air ensuring that equipment temperatures are constantly held to setpoint conditions. The energy-efficient design lowers total cost of ownership by monitoring IT equipment inlet temperatures to modulate capacity based on the demand for cooling. Fan speed is controlled based on the demand to reduce energy consumption during off-peak cooling periods. Heat rejection for the unit can be handled through an existing chilled water system or an APC supplied chiller. The modular, scalable solution improves agility by enabling you to add cooling as demand increases, making the InRow RC ideal for small to large datacenters.
InfraStruXure InRow RP
The predictable solution for an unpredictable environment. The InfraStruXure InRow RP is a high capacity precision air conditioning unit designed to maximize sensible cooling for high efficiency operation. The InRow RP product expands the InRow product offering by increasing the capacity range for chilled water applications and includes an air cooled solution. Both the chilled water and air cooled products control humidity with canister humidifiers and electric reheat. This feature enables data center designs to leverage InRow Architecture for both sensible cooling of the IT load in the row, and humidity control of the entire data center. The in-row concept closely couples cooling with the heat load, preventing exhaust air recirculation to sensitive IT equipment. The energy-efficient design lowers total cost of ownership by monitoring IT equipment inlet temperatures to modulate capacity based on the demand for cooling. Fan speed is controlled based on the demand to reduce energy consumption during off peak cooling periods. Heat rejection for the chilled water InRow RP can be handled through an existing chilled water system or APC supplied chiller. The air cooled InRow RP requires the use of an APC remote air cooled condenser selected based on ambient temperature for proper heat rejection The modular, scalable solution improves agility by enabling you to add cooling as demand increases, making the InRow RP ideal for small to large datacenters.
InfraStruXure InRow SC
The predictable solution for an unpredictable environment. New technologies are increasing heat loads in today’s server rooms and wiring closets, which often lack adequate cooling. The APC InfraStruXure InRow SC is a self-contained cooling solution that maximizes availability within small IT rooms. This energy-efficient unit lowers operating costs by using variable speed fans, capacity modulation, and an in-row form factor. The InRow SC’s plug-and-play design allows for rapid installation without the need for running refrigerant lines or providing remote heat exchangers. The predictive failure notification and high head pressure protection features, along with hot-swappable fans, improve the availability of IT equipment.
Hot Aisle Containment
The predictable solution for an unpredictable environment. Mixing of hot and cold air streams in the data center lowers availability of IT equipment. Returning the warmest possible air to the computer room air conditioners increases the efficiency and capacity of the system. The hot aisle containment system ensures proper air distribution by completely separating supply and return air paths. The hot aisle is sealed off using doors and transparent ceiling tiles that extend the width of the hot aisle. Ceiling tiles are available for 300mm, 600mm, and 750mm wide NetShelter Racks, UPS/PDU, and InRow Cooling products.
Rack Air Containment
The world’s most adaptable rack air management system. Deployment of high density loads in IT environments can create areas of unpredictable cooling performance. APC’s Rack Air Containment is a modular system designed to work in conjunction with APC NetShelter SX enclosures and InRow cooling units to provide maximum cooling predictability, capacity, and efficiency. By attaching to the rear of the NetShelter SX, air exhausted from IT equipment is forced to pass through the cooling unit where it is conditioned. This ensures that warm exhaust air does not find its way back to the air inlets of installed servers. N+1 and 2N configurations allow for maximum availability. Front containment can also be added to provide additional isolation and noise dampening.
The world’s only computer room air conditioning system with horizontal airflow for in-row operation. Data center heat densities continue to increase, making it more difficult to provide adequate cooling. The distance between heat sources and heat removal systems must decrease to ensure proper airflow paths. The closer to the heat generation source the air conditioner is, the less likely mixing of hot and cold air streams will occur.
The NetworkAIR IR is a computer room air conditioning system with a horizontal airflow pattern specifically designed for hot aisle/cold aisle configurations. Warm exhaust air is drawn from the hot aisle, cooled, and distributed into the cold aisle, ensuring that equipment inlet temperatures will be constant and adequate for proper operation.
Closely coupling the air conditioner with the heat source produces warmer return air to the system. This increases the heat removal capacity of the system and nearly eliminates the need for make-up humidification.
