The self-contained CM12 needs no external refrigerant lines and operates on standard 115-V power. The unit delivers 13,000 Btu/h of cool air directly to the IT equipment mounted above it, resulting in increased efficiency and lower electricity costs, as well as saving floor space.
“We designed the CM12 to fit in the cramped crawl space above a drop ceiling,” said David Keller, manager, Heat Management Department, DENSO Products and Services Americas, Inc. “However, the CM12’s compact design also makes it ideal for OEM applications such as this one, where space is at a premium.”
The MRCS13 is wheel mounted and can be separated into a top and bottom unit, for easy portability. The top unit is available as a closed cabinet or an open four-post or two-post rack. Ten different sizes of cabinets and racks allow cooling of small to large networks. Applications include primary, supplemental or backup cooling for server or telecom closets, open office space or data centers.
