Data Center Cooling Solutions

Schneider Electric row based cooling solutions are designed to be closely coupled with the IT heat load in order to prevent hot air.

Uniflair’s Precision air-conditioning products are equipped with unique “intelligent” features offering maximum reliability, efficiency, precision and due respect for the environment.

Customer Challenges

  • Growing pains make it difficult for customers to add on to their cooling needs
  • Future proofing downtime
  • Achieving efficiencies while cooling high density heat loads to ensure 7×24 Data Center availability
  • High Density
  • Higher Blades (Virtualization)

Target Applications & Environments

The Wiring Closet and Server Room are the fastest growing and rapidly changing environments. New applications and virtual platforms continually challenge IT managers to match their infrastructure to their growing business needs.

The Data Center, which is on a constant path towards gaining efficiencies, continues to be a focus for better suited cooling.
