Unity Cooling is an efficient, economical and scalable system to achieve hot aisle containment for a single rack or an entire room. It is ideal for rack(s) with up to 30 kW heat loads. An active fan system senses the pressure inside the rack and modulates the fans to only evacuate the air moved by the server fans, eliminating infiltration and exfiltration. Two fans operate in tandem, providing N+1 capability.
With higher density equipment now being deployed, good air management is essential for efficient data center operation. One of the basics of air flow management is separation of hot and cold air in the data center. Using the Unity Cooling fan modules Data Aire’s Unity Cooling Systems captures the hot air from servers in the rack so that all air delivered to the space is available to meet the cooling needs of the IT equipment. All IT exhaust heat is contained and returned to the facility’s CRAC units using the area above the T-bar ceiling or ducts.
Data Aire Unity Cooling modules then communicate their exhaust volume to a server that aggregates these volumes and communicates it to Data Aire’s Zone Master software. The Zone Master then adjusts the CRACs supply volume to the room to match or exceed the exhaust volume. Data Aire Unity Cooling eliminates the need for supplemental cooling, allows fewer cooling units, and keeps water or glycol loops at the perimeter of the facility.
