RACKMOUNT COOLING UNITS
Rackmount cooling is a system whereby fans are rack mounted to provide an internal cooling system in situations where a large amount of heat is generated and which needs to be controlled. Performance networking, computer, and A/V equipment tend to generate a lot of heat pretty quickly. And heat isn’t good for electronics. The more servers you pack into a finite space, the more heat you’re going to generate. Overheating can lead to damaged components, not to mention downtime, both of which can have dire consequences.
What Does Rackmount Mean?
A 19-inch rack is a standard frame or enclosure for mounting multiple electronic equipment modules. Each module has a front panel that is 19 inches wide. This includes the edges or “ears” that protrude from each side of the equipment, allowing various IT and A/V equipment to be mounted to the rack frame with screws. Cooling equipment can be attach directly to racks or enclosures to cool components, rather than the area around them.
Intelligent Cooling Solutions
Intelligent cooling rack mount cabinets are the smart alternative to wasteful and expensive air-conditioning. Many organisations are discovering that it is far more cost effective and energy efficient to cool server racks instead of entire server and comms rooms. Investing in energy efficient equipment makes sound business and environmental sense. Cooling Racks isn’t just about saving money, it’s about reducing the impact on the environment. For every pound you save in electricity costs you are reducing your carbon footprint, and increasing your green marketability.
‘Intelligent cooling server racks can help you reduce your carbon footprint and increase the green marketability of your company or organisation’.
Despite advances in cooling technology, many server rooms are operating inefficiently. As businesses move much of their computing power to the cloud, computer rooms are increasingly likely to be over-specified in terms of space and the capability of the computer room air conditioning unit. Whenever possible, it’s ideal to design the room around the equipment, not vice versa. In practicality, of course, this isn’t always possible.
Cooling is an extremely important challenge in any networking situation. But, intelligent cooling server racks or cabinets can provide a simple and efficient way of removing the heat from rackmounted equipment in server rooms and offices. MAXI-COOL® all-in-one rackmount cooling cabinets helps your equipment stay cool and function at peak performance, without the fuss of adding fans which may or may not do the job.
