SmartAire MZ - Multi-zone automatic variable-air-volume damper

The time and energy savings gained by installing the units more than justify the initial investment for the unit with a very short payback period.

Tate Airflow®, the global brand of next generation airflow management products and services, is introducing an upgrade to the existing line of SmartAire® automatic variable-air-volume dampers. The new SmartAire® MZ offers four independent control zones, a simplified user interface on the unit and on screen, and greater integration with existing DCIM and BAS systems.

SmartAire® MZ (Multi-Zone)dampers offer automatic balancing by monitoring inlet air temperature to ensure the right amount of air is always delivered to the equipment at the right time. The new dampers adjust cooling independently to 4 separate zones of a rack to allow for variable loads and partially deployed areas without overcooling and wasting energy. The four individually controlled zones available with SmartAire® MZ provide cooling based on approximately 10U of equipment in each rack when used with the DirectAire® Al directional airflow panel. The combination provides the most granular level of airflow control available in a data center.

“The upgrades available in the new SmartAire® MZ coupled with its new price point make it a very attractive product for data center airflow management. The time and energy savings gained by installing the units more than justify the initial investment for the unit with a very short payback period. ” – Scott Alwine, Marketing Manager

The new SmartAire® MZ also offers real time rack level monitoring and control of airflow to improve decision making and reduce operating cost. The built in BAS interface card uses SNMP or TCP/IP LAN Ethernet communications for control and monitoring each of the four temperature probes per rack. This communication allows SmartAire® MZ to go beyond automatically managing load changes to provide data that can be used to help make decisions about where to deploy new equipment.
