Thermal Containment

 

Hot and cold air containment systems are designed to maximize cooling predictability, capacity, and efficiency at the rack, row or room level. The EcoAisle is an intelligent thermal containment solution designed to increase cooling system efficiency while protecting critical IT equipment and personnel. The Active Flow Control (AFC) available in the EcoAisle provides the intelligence to communicate to the cooling system in order to right size the cooling airflow to match the load of the IT equipment providing a reduction in fan energy over conventional cooling systems. The Eco Aisle system offers flexibility in rack height, width and depth to support either hot or cold aisle containment. EcoAisle provides a safe and efficient environment for IT equipment and personnel incorporating additional features for high efficiency LED lighting with motion detection.

Benefits:

Adaptability

  • Air Return System – Centralized hot air return system for room and external air handling systems minimize obstruction of lighting into the aisle and provide cable access from within the contained aisle
  • Flexibility – Support for varying aisle widths, rack heights, rack depths, and single rows. Supports hot and cold aisle containment
  • Modular strategy – Modular design of the mechanical and control systems allow for gradual build-up of the cooling infrastructure to match the cooling demand of the facility

Agility

  • Ceiling tiles – Close off the top of the aisle to prevent mixing of the hot and cold airstreams in the IT environment
  • Fire Safe System – Alerts personnel and drops ceiling panels based on temperature to enable fire suppressions system in the room to extinguish the fire
  • Modular design – Modular design provides scalable solutions to add cooling as demand increases
  • One-way locking door – Secures the hot aisle while allowing for quick exit in case of emergency
  • Safe Slide Doors – Emergency break away sliding door enables quick exit in the event of an emergency
