Schneider Electric, a global provider of data center solutions and a specialist in energy management and automation, has introduced the second generation of its InRow DX (direct expansion) 600mm cooling solution. The latest addition to the company’s InRow cooling product line would deliver industry leading energy efficiency for high capacity loads.
Schneider Electric’s new InRow DX cooling solution features enhanced controls and a new user interface. This second generation release is capable of high-density cooling up to 42kW with a 4000 SCFM max airflow in a small 600mm-wide footprint.
The InRow DX design closely couples cooling with the IT heat load, preventing hot air recirculation, while improving cooling predictability and allowing for a pay as you grow environment. Available in self-contained, fluid-cooled, and air-cooled configurations with or without humidity control, these product versions would meet the diverse requirements for closet, server room, and data center cooling.
Active Flow Control
The addition of Active Flow Control, which measures air pressure inside the data center containment system and automatically adjusts fan speed to match the exact airflow of the IT equipment, would increase precision and efficiency. With an improved user-friendly design, the InRow DX also features an intuitive 4.3-inch color touch screen display and network card, to provide fast, easy access to data and increased visibility into cooling system performance.
“Data center managers face numerous obstacles on the path towards efficiency, including growing performance needs resulting in higher density systems, tightening energy regulations and pressure to reduce OpEx,” said Matthew Baynes, Data Centre Business Development Director, Schneider Electric. “The latest generation of InRow direct expansion cooling puts efficiency and cost savings at the forefront for users, delivering the greatest partial-load energy savings available in a small but powerful system.”
