Frame-supported hot aisle containment with added flexibility and efficiency

Chatsworth Products (CPI) : 21 November, 2012  (New Product)
Known for solving complex IT infrastructure problems with customised solutions, Chatsworth Products (CPI) introduces its new Frame Supported Hot Aisle Containment (HAC) and Aisle Containment Services as the latest step toward personalising virtually any airflow containment strategy.
Frame-supported hot aisle containment with added flexibility and efficiency

Developed for large scale cabinet deployments that require flexibility and performance, Frame Supported HAC was specifically designed to deploy airflow isolation to a broad range of cabinet sizes and manufacturers.

The new frame-supported HAC features a frame supported exhaust duct that is used over a contained hot aisle as part of a closed hot air return. By supporting the duct with an independent frame that allows a mix of different cabinets to be installed within the row, this system is ideal for co-location facilities and large scale data centres that support cabinet-level equipment installation and changes. This aisle containment solution also integrates with perimeter cooling, provides immediate improved cooling efficiency and is compatible with economisation methods.

“The Frame Supported HAC will expand our capabilities to assist more data centres in implementing airflow isolation measures that increase operating efficiencies, increase equipment densities and take advantage of economisation methods,” said Sam Rodriguez, CPI Product Manager of Cabinet and Thermal Management Systems.

“The unique design is compatible with cabinets from most manufacturers and will support cabinet heights from 42 RMUs to 52 RMUs,” said Rodriguez. “The Frame Supported structure and adjustable panels allow quick deployment and refresh at the cabinet level since the exhaust duct seals to the cabinet bodies but doesn’t require attachment.”      

The CPI range also includes cabinet-supported systems for HAC and Cold Aisle Containment (CAC). While each approach is unique and easily adaptable to varying facility needs, all three of CPI’s aisle containment solutions have been engineered to:

  • Eliminate hot spots
  • Support 4x higher heat and power densities
  • Effectively utilise 100% of supplied air
  • Improve CRAC unit efficiency
  • Allow increased room temperature and higher set-points on cooling equipment for more “free cooling” hours

To ensure that each Aisle Containment Solution is optimised to its fullest potential, CPI recently added Aisle Containment Services in the form of a Pre-Installation Site Survey and On-Site Installation Supervision Support. Designed to help choose the ideal containment solution and ensure that the initial installation has been assembled for optimal performance, these services are invaluable for any aisle containment. Both the Pre-Installation Site Survey and On-Site Installation Supervision Support are available in eight-hour blocks and can be expanded on a case-by-case basis.

This expansion of CPI’s broad Aisle Containment offering, which also includes cabinet-supported solutions for hot and cold aisle containment, is a continuation of the company’s mission to help data centres reduce operating costs through quality engineering, flexibility and holistic thermal solutions.
