Over its lifetime, a typical IT enclosure will undergo a variety of modifications and upgrades—some planned, but many unforeseen. In both design and accessories, Rittal builds flexibility into each enclosure to manage modifications efficiently. This helps ensure the enclosure does not have to be taken out of service or replaced to accommodate new hardware, cooling or power solutions.
In IT data rooms confined in small spaces where chilled water is not available, such as in edge computing, heat buildup is rapid. The LCP DX Rack provides efficient cooling matched to the server rack load in a closed-loop enclosure. With high-performance EC fan technology, refrigerant cooled air is targeted directly within the racks. Servers are cooled independently from the ambient air, with systems designed to adapt easily from a single enclosure to a modular series.
The LCP Inline DX is designed for a bayed enclosure suite where chilled water is not available. Hot air from the room or hot aisle at the rear of the device enclosure is efficiently chilled by the high-capacity variable speed compressor fans, and the refrigerated air is directed back into the room or cold aisle after cooling.
The closed-loop LCP Rack CW units give you total control over the air path. Using a compact 12-inch-wide footprint, this next-generation system may even double your cooling capacity without occupying additional floor space. The high-efficiency fans are located at the front of the LCP – on the cool side away from the highest level of heat – to extend fan life.
In a bayed enclosure suite, LCP Inline CW creates a cold curtain down a row, maximizing efficient cooling. Choose from two configuration options: flush, in which moving air flows into the cold aisle, and protruding, where cold air flows from both sides laterally across the face of nearby enclosures. A higher water inlet temperature increases the proportion of free cooling, reducing operating costs.
