Cooling IT Infrastructure

Company News, Energy Management, Topics, Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM)

STULZ’s new EC Tower is designed for rapid deployment in server room environments and boasts a footprint of up to one-third that of conventional precision air-conditioning units.


Temperature management for IT infrastructure is critical, even for smaller server and technical rooms, and the split air-conditioning design of the EC Toweoffers high levels of reliability and precision control, in a fraction of the footprint of conventional air-conditioning systems.


Phil McEneaney, Head of Sales for STULZ UK, says:

“All too often, poorly specified cooling technology leads to erratic climate control, increased operating expenditure and costly disruption to IT operations. Downtime is not an option regardless of the size of the server room. However, precision cooling solutions, such as the EC Tower series, are ideally suited to technical spaces that cannot compromise on reliability, space or cost.


"“Energy efficiency is also high on the agenda for SMEs from a corporate responsibility perspective but also improves the bottom line".



Reduced energy costs

According to the company, The EC Tower series offers the advantages of modern inverter outdoor condensing unit. A split climate solution, the EC Tower range can be rapidly deployed for heat loads of 5kW to 24 kW. A key advantage of the outdoor condensing unit is the ability to support dynamic capacity adjustment of the rated cooling capacity.


The series is purposely designed for continuous, 24/7 cooling of technical rooms, with Stulz stating it generates "between 90 per cent and 100 per cent" of sensible cooling capacity (a measure that refers to cooling capacity adjusted for energy lost in dehumidification processes). Stulz addtionally states the series' Sensible Heat Ratio (SHR) value eliminates problems associated with removing moisture via the evaporator which can be an issue in technical environments, causing static build up within the technical equipment. 


An additional benefit of the EC Tower is the increased distance between the internal and external condensing unit of up to 100 metres which enables flexible installation.


Stulz also claims its new solution operates more quietly than conventional units as its compressor is located in the outdoor unit, no noise emissions and no additional heat are generated in the technical room. 


A wide range of accessories is supplied as standard, including fault indicators, fire shut down, common alarm, electric heating, EC compressor and much more.
