Schneider Expands Cooling Product Line
September 12th, 2011 By: Rich Miller
Schneider Electric today announced two new additions to its data center cooling solutions portfolio, including the upcoming release of the InRow RA and the North American debut of Uniflair Chilled Water Room Air Conditioners.
The upcoming release of the InRow RA eliminates the use of water within the data center environment, mitigating the risk of leaks developing within the data center. This unique close-coupled cooling approach is floor-mounted and features a pumped refrigerant row-based system that uses thermal containment and smart controls to fully manage the cooling of the data center. The InRow RA is equipped with active response controls that allow for monitoring and active adjustment of cooling capacity.
Uniflair Chilled Water Air Conditioners are a perimeter cooling solution, and have been used in data centers throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America for many years. The units feature a compact footprint, highly efficient Electronically Commutated (EC) fans and a design that allows for easy access for service.
“As we continue to invest and expand our overall cooling portfolio globally, Schneider Electric has developed clear, competitive advantages in product reliability, efficiency and flexibility,” said Dave Guidette, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Systems and Services, Schneider Electric. “We are able to provide intelligent, network manageable cooling solutions that allow our customers to monitor and manage the temperature of their data center like never before. From perimeter or economizer cooling solutions, to our industry-leading InRow close coupled cooling approach, no other company can provide as many options to meet the needs and goals of any data center. No matter if the project is a brand new design or a data center that is retrofitting or expanding, our cooling portfolio has the appropriate solution for any scenario.”
Schneider Electric will display its complete line of cooling solutions at booth #801 AFCOM Data Center World Expo, which gets underway today at the Orlando World Center Marriott and Convention Center.
