Pre-configured Field Installable Components Upgrade Server Enclosures for a Significantly More Energy Efficient Data Center

http:Wright Line, a manufacturer of advanced solutions for technology-intensive environments, announced today that its patent-pending Heat Containment Systemâ„¢ (HCS) is now available for third-party server enclosures including APC® and Chatsworth Products, Inc.

Wright Line's HCS is a simple, scalable, and low cost solution that more effectively manages the ever-increasing and dynamic heat loads found in today's data center. The system integrates seamlessly into an existing cooling infrastructure and is designed to capture, manage and direct the heat exhaust from IT equipment to the top rear of the enclosure where it is ducted to the data center's precision air conditioning units through a ceiling plenum or hot air returns.

"Adapting existing enclosures to the heat containment system can eliminate the need to spend additional capital on equipment such as perimeter, in the row or overhead CRACs/CRAH's and other supplemental cooling devices. The Heat Containment System manages the hot air exhaust, prevents air mixing and thereby allows the available cooling infrastructure to be used more efficiently," stated Carl Cottuli, Vice President of Product Development and Services for Wright Line.    

The HCS for third-party enclosures is field installable and is able to adapt to existing cabling and wiring infrastructure. Air flow management accessories, such as blanking panels, by-pass airflow grommets, cable management devices, air-flow baffles for Cisco® switches and end-of-row hot or cold aisle doors can also be ordered to further improve airflow and power management in the data center.

Extending Wright Line's airflow management systems beyond its own Paramount and Vantage Enclosure platforms is a strategic decision for the company according to Ed Bednarcik, Wright Line CEO. "We're helping people solve problems in their data centers regardless of whose enclosure or equipment they currently have in place. Our goal is to help data center operators manage and optimize airflow which, in turn, will reduce their overall energy costs and improve their reliability."

Wright Line's HCS is priced according to configuration. Data center audits and price quotations are available upon request.
