RTL-CICS1 Rittal Cold Aisle Containment System 1

Rittal Cold Aisled duo

Description:

Increase server performance by implementing cold aisle containment Instead of flooding the Data Centre with cold air, the cold aisle containment system from Rittal effectively traps the cool air exactly where it is needed directly in front of the air intake of the servers. Cold air is directed across the whole height of the enclosure ensuring that there are no hotspots and the hot air is xhausted out of the system. Due to the cold aisle being contained there is no chance of the hot exhaust air mixing with the cold inlet air, therefore there is an increase in system efficiency. The special energy efficiency of the Rittal cold aisle concept has a simple and plausible explanation: 1. Cold and hot air cannot mix, warm air does not flow into the cold aisle. 2. The system can be operated with a much higher extracted air temperature. 3. Standard air circulation cooling units are operated at an optimum thermal efficiency level. Call for planning and assistance for a complete solution Nowadays, servers are increasingly positioned in rooms that were not designed as Data Centres. If these rooms are fitted with a raised floor space for cable runs and air conditioning, the room height is correspondingly reduced. Standard height server racks (2000/ 2200 mm) then extend into the hot air cushion present just beneath the ceiling. In the uppermost rack slots this can lead to considerable thermal problems, because the cooling output decreases from the bottom upwards. In particular, heat pockets in hotspot racks are not dissipated. To overcome this problem in particular, Rittal developed a cold aisle containment system, in which the generated cold air is not output all over the room but rather in a targeted manner to the space where cooling is most needed the server. The result: increased reliability as well as higher energy efficiency!

Features:

● Cooled and heated air do not mix.
● Warm air does not flow into the cold aisle.
● The system can be operated with a much higher exhaust air temperature.
● Air circulation cooling units are operated at an optimum thermal efficiency level.
● Simple cooling air ducting direct to the servers.
● Shielding of the hardware sound emissions.
● Pleasant temperature in the cold room.
● Human-friendly climate rather than a wind tunnel.
● Use of conventional air circulation cooling units.
● Can be used in conjunction with liquid cooling systems.

Advantages:
● Fire load is not significantly increased thanks to the incorporation of toughened safety glass.
● Increased energy efficiency and performance of the climate components.
● Higher power density achievable with guaranteed cold air supply.
● Simple installation and retrofitting ability thanks to full compatibility with TS 8 enclosure
system.
● Inexpensive performance enhancement for your existing installation, extending your investment cycle until replacement purchase.
