Video: Schneider Electric Technology Center
August 19th, 2010 By: Rich Miller
The Schneider Electric Technology Center is a 100,000 square foot facility in O’Fallon, Missouri designed as a testbed for Schneider and its customers and industry partners to design efficient approaches to power and cooling. The data center is equipped with the latest power efficiency technology and sturdy infrastructure to run high-density installations that have been problematic in legacy data centers. The technology center includes 11,000 square feet of working raised floor space for customer testing and equipment demos, as well as a 9,000 square foot area with dual air chambers to create test environments ranging from 50 degrees to 110 degrees. This video provides an overview of the facility and how Schneider is using it, and runs about 3 minutes, 30 seconds.
This facility is truly amazing, specifically the cooling laboratory. The cooling lab directly challenges any DC designer that stills believes that perimeter cooling is still a viable option in today’s high density facilities.
Schneider has really extended the distance between itself and the nearest competitor.
