APC: Data Center Cooling System
November 24, 2008
The InRow RD is a row-based, direct expansion cooling system for network closets, server rooms, and data centers. Designed for installation within the row of racks, it captures hot exhaust air directly from the aisle and distributes cool air through the front of the unit, which ensures temperatures are held at set point conditions. According to the manufacturer, the unit is designed to address server room issues in a unique, modular fashion that can help prevent downtime whether it is used by a small business or enterprise branch office. Key features of the unit include real-time capacity monitoring and easy operation, as well as variable-speed fans that reduce energy consumption during off-peak hours. In addition, the modular design provides scalable solutions to add cooling as demand increases, up to 10kW. The APC InRow RD is controlled by a microprocessor that provides a high level of functionality over the unit’s controls through a four-line alphanumeric display and enables centralized management via the InfraStruXure Manager.
