SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — Rittal Corp. has introduced a new refrigerant-based rack and row cooling solution, known as LCP DX, for heat removal of critical IT components.

The line is available in two models, as a rack or in-line solution, and is said to be ideal for small- to medium-sized data centers or computer rooms that need an efficient and cost-effective way to remove heat from IT equipment without the use of water or glycol.

“Rittal has applied its design and technical expertise to create an innovative and highly efficient IT equipment heat removal solution,” said Glenn Wishnew, senior manager, Product Management. “Our new direct expansion refrigerant-based cooling system is designed specifically to meet the equipment cooling challenges of the IT industry.”

The company said the Rittal Rack LCP DX delivers precision heat removal, as it puts the cooling only where needed to protect valuable IT equipment while minimizing energy costs. Furthermore, the LCP DX solution is a complete unified solution that includes airflow optimized enclosures which include baffles and blanking panels.

The LCP DX achieves maximum energy efficiency through its intelligent CMC III SNMP-based management system, which monitors heat conditions and enables fans to continually deliver the required cooling by means of heat exchangers and fans.
