WEBSTER, N.Y. — OptiCool Technologies has announced that its data center rack cooling solution is NEBS Zone 4 Seismic GR-63 compliant, having passed rigorous testing where the data center cooling system remained operational after the equivalent of an 8.3 seismic event.
OptiCool specializes in rack containment solutions using refrigerant to efficiently transfer heat away from computer-based electronics. Network Equipment Building Systems (NEBS) GR-63-CORE is the industry’s most stringent seismic standard incorporating a requirement for passing rigorous shaker table vibration testing.
“OptiCool is the premier seismic-rated rack containment cooling solution in the market today,” said Jeff Burke, president of OptiCool Technologies. “Our customers expect OptiCool to provide innovative data center cooling solutions that can also withstand harsh environmental conditions, including major earthquakes.”
Going forward all core products offered by the company will be seismic compliant. “OptiCool sets the standard for modularity, adaptability, efficiency, and now, ruggedness,” said Burke.
