Air Conditioned Computer Cabinet
MovinCool, a brand of DENSO Corp., Long Beach, Calif., announced that its Uptime Racks ECC13 air conditioned computer cabinet, manufactured by Computer Room Uptime, Broomfield, Colo., are now cooled by a MovinCool CM12 air conditioner built into the cabinet’s base. The cabinet is the result of a collaborative effort between the two companies.
The compact, self-contained CM12, which needs no external refrigerant lines and operates on standard 115-V current, was originally designed to fit into the cramped crawl space above a drop ceiling. The unit delivers 13,000 Btu/h of cooling capacity directly to the IT equipment housed in the cabinet, resulting in high-energy efficiency and saving valuable floor space.
The wheel-mounted cabinet features 32U of available rack space and 19-inch EIA-310 standard hole spacing. A front-to-back airflow pattern follows ASHRAE standards. The cabinet’s rails are adjustable to accommodate equipment up to 33.5 inches in depth, while the front rails entail square holes with rack-unit increment markings. Additional features include heavy-duty, 14-gauge welded-steel construction with reinforced corners; lockable front doors and removable side panels; a programmable electronic thermostat; automatic fire-alarm shutoff; and a backup UPS.
The cabinet connects to building management systems for central monitoring and control and can also send e-mail alerts and status reports via WiFi.
