Precision in-row cooling controlled and integrated via ColdLogik's award winning Management and Room Management Systems
In-row cooling technology is a type of air conditioning system commonly used for data centre cooling in which the cooling unit is placed between the server cabinets in a row to offer cool air to the server equipments more effectively. In-row cooling systems use a horizontal airflow pattern utilising hot aisle/cold aisle configurations and they only occupy one-half rack of row space without any additional side clearance space.
The in-row cooling unit draws warm exhaust air directly from the hot aisle, cools it and distributes it to the cold aisle. This ensures that inlet temperatures are steady for precise operation. Coupling the air conditioning with the heat source produces an efficient direct return air path; this is called “close coupled cooling,” which also lowers the fan energy required. In-row cooling also prevents the mixing of hot and cold air, thus increasing efficiency.
