MovinCool Powers New Uptime Racks Air-Conditioned Computer Cabinet
Built-in air conditioner brings cooling directly to heat source, takes up no additional floor space
LONG BEACH, Calif. -- MovinCool®, a brand of DENSO Corporation, announced that the new Uptime RacksTM ECC13 air-conditioned computer cabinet, manufactured by Computer Room Uptime, is 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, making it ideal for this application. 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 UpTime Racks ECC13 computer cabinet, which is wheel-mounted for easy mobility, features 32U of available rack space and 19-in. 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 in. in depth, while the front rails have convenient 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 easily to building-management systems, for central monitoring and control, and can also send e-mail alerts and status reports via WiFi. A low, 52-dBA sound level allows operation in office environments.
Applications include server and telecom rooms; emergency, supplemental or redundant cooling in data centers and other mission-critical environments; mobile emergency-command centers; theater A/V systems; and open office-space use, eliminating the need for a dedicated server room.
“Our CM12 has had great success as a ceiling-mount air conditioner,” said David Keller, manager, Heat Management Department. “This new computer cabinet shows how the compact, self-contained design of our units is adaptable to a variety of applications, allowing us to meet the needs of an even wider range of customers.”
