APC Metered Rack Power Distribution Unit (PDU) Solution

btn_contact

APC-Switched-Rack-PDUMetered rack PDUs provide real-time remote monitoring of connected loads. User-defined alarms warn of potential circuit overloads before critical IT failures occur.

Keeping your eye open for unplanned overloads

APC Metered Rack Power Distribution Units (PDUs) provide active metering to enable energy optimization and circuit protection. User-defined alarm thresholds mitigate risk with real-time local and remote alerts to warn of potential circuit overloads. Metered Rack PDUs provide power utilization data to allow Data Center Managers to make informed decisions on load balancing and right sizing IT environments to lower total cost of ownership. Users can access and configure Metered Rack PDUs through secure Web, SNMP, or Telnet Interfaces which are complimented by APC Centralized Management platforms using InfraStruxure Central, Operations, Capacity, and Energy Efficiency. New AP8000 series Metered Rack PDUs include real power monitoring, a temperature/humidity sensor port, locking IEC receptacles, and ultra low profile circuit breakers.

Features & Benefits

FEATURES BENEFITS
Remote Management Capabilities Full-featured network management interfaces that provide standards-based management via Web, SNMP, and Telnet. Allows users to access, configure, and manage units from remote locations to save valuable time. Associated with this feature is the ability to quickly and easily upgrade the firmware via network download to installed units for future product enhancements.
Local Current Monitoring Display The aggregate current draw per power distribution unit is displayed on the unit via a digital display. The local digital display helps installers avoid overloaded circuits by providing a visible warning when the current draw is close to the maximum amperage draw of the strip.
Alarm Thresholds Define alarm thresholds in order to avoid overloaded circuits. Network and visual alarms inform the user of possible problems. (Note: Only available on units with the current monitoring capabilities. Please see SKU specifications for availability)
Load indicator LED Indicates overload and warning conditions based on the user-defined alarm thresholds. Alerts users of potential overloaded circuits.
Flash Upgradeable Quickly and easily upgrade firmware via network download for future product enhancements. Eliminates the need to replace products already installed in the field when new features are released. (Note: Networked units only)
Integrates with InfraStruXure Central An IT-ready, scalable monitoring system that collects, organizes, and distributes critical alerts, surveillance video and key information, providing a unified view of complex physical infrastructure environments from anywhere on the network

APC Air Cooled Chillers Cooling Solutions

btn_contact

APC-Air-Cooled-Chiller-Cooling-SolutionThe all-in-one integrated chilled water solution for data center cooling. APC air-cooled chillers provide the most efficient solution for large data center environments. Air cooled chillers afford placement flexibility while supporting both Row and Room cooling products.

The modular air cooled chillers for air conditioning equipment in data centers is a new generation of leading edge technology with an all-in-one integrated package simplifying time and cost of installation.

Precision environmental requirements now reach far beyond the confines of the traditional data center or computer room to encompass a larger suite of applications referred to as technology rooms.

APC-Air-Cooled-Chiller-Cooling-Solution-view2Critical environment applications include:

  • Computer rooms
  • Telecommunication facilities
  • Clean rooms
  • Power Equipment
  • Medical equipment rooms
  • Archives
  • LAN/WAN environments

Model

The air cooled modular chillers are designed for medium to large data centers and are available in six models; from 50 kW to 220 kW. Models 50-167 kW include a separate power feed to the pump for UPS connection.

Chilled Water Distribution

Chilled water is often used in data centers to provide the maximum reliability and capacity control of the cooling equipment, while maintaining the indoor environment refrigerant-free. To provide high reliability for year-round operation, a dedicated chiller is recommended for data center air conditioners.

APC’s Air Cooled Modular Chiller supplies chilled water to the Computer Room Air Conditioners (CRACs). The chilled water absorbs rejected heat from the air through the CRAC units and then is routed back to the chiller through the return lines. The chiller then rejects the heat from the water completing the system cycle.

APC EcoBreeze Air Economizer Cooling Solution
APC EcoBreeze Air Economizer Cooling Solution

EcoBreeze™ is a pre-engineered and tested product designed to meet the expanding requirements for data center efficiency. EcoBreeze provides multiple modes of economization to maximize energy efficiency during the year. Additionally, it can utilize a supplemental mechanical cooling circuit to maintain the data center cooling set point on the worst of ambient conditions. Available in a 20ft (6m) or a 40ft (12m) ISO frame, the modular design allows for scalability in 50kW increments up to 400kW of total cooling capacity. The intelligent controls and redundant components of EcoBreeze maintain reliability and availability during constantly changing ambient conditions.

Efficient and effective cooling

  • Right-sized cooling made possible by individual 50 kW modules that can be grouped up to a maximum of 200 kW and 400 kW of sensible cooling per frame
  • Fully adaptable cooling via EC fan technology
  • Efficient and effective cooling via total internal isolation of the IT airstream from the outdoor ambient airstream
  • Regulatory compliance with recommendations and requirements for economization and efficiency (e.g., ASHRAE 90.1 in North America).

Adaptability

  • Ability to address any cooling requirement worldwide via multiple module and frame voltages/frequencies
  • Adaptability via the integration of multiple cooling options in one module footprint: indirect evaporative, air-to-air heat exchange, and proportional direct expansion
  • Ability to control redundancy from the frame down to the individual module level

Flexible and easy installation and servicing

  • Flexible and cost-effective deployment since the unit uses zero white space within the data center
  • Easy installation because of a single point of connection for water, power, and communications
  • Adaptable installation because it can be deployed with raised or non-raised floor applications
  • Safe and easy capacity expansion and servicing via individual isolation of air, power, and communications between the frame and modules

Environmentally friendly

  • No chemical treatment required due to an on-board water treatment system
  • Environmentally friendly because of zero ozone-depleting proportional R410a refrigerant system
