Managing datacentre cooling with Retex Cool Row
15 July 2014
Retex Cool Row cooling systems for even distribution of cooled air can help cut energy costs in Computer Room Air Conditioning (CRAC) applications by up to 40 percent.
Rather than using a single inlet for the cooled air, smart distribution systems, like Cool Row from Retex, allow the air to be dispersed into the room evenly. Stood between the racks, the Cool Row cabinets feature eight electronically commutated fans which provide variable speeds according to thermal needs. This means that air is distributed into the cold aisle evenly and at the quantity required.
The Cool Row is compatible with most popular cold aisle containment systems, including Retex Datalogic cabinet rooms, and can be quickly assembled upon delivery. They provide cooling for medium to high density applications; a single unit is suitable for up to 35kW. The towers are easily maintained and the filters and fans can be replaced whilst in use. Each unit consumes just 770W at full power.
Where CRAC is being used to cool the air in a datacentre, cold aisle containment with Cool Row cabinets installed can cut energy costs by as much as 40 percent. This is achieved through the simple process of directing the air towards the rack inlets.
