In-Floor Cooling System for Modular Datacenters

Day after day, the deployment of modular Datacenters installations is becoming more than usual. Industry tendencies point out to those small-size Datacenters as the preferable solution in terms of space optimization. For this, Weiss has developed the innovative In-Floor Cooling System for Modular Datacenters.

Modular Datacenter Challenges

In order to support the IoT evolution and the masse data produced daily by people and technology, modular Datacenter are a critical solution for doing so.

One of the biggest challenges for Edge Installations and small Datacenters is to maximize the use of space for exploitation, installing reliable elements with reduced footprint to ensure the operation continuity and maximal space optimization.

Full Space Optimisation

Therefore, Weiss Doppelbodensysteme Active Panels become a great solution for such spaces. Its location under raised floor enables our customer to take full profit from Datacenter footprint.

Active Panels enable you to dedicate the whole height of the containment to host servers in rack cabinets. Additionally, raised floor area may host cable routing as well.

Datacenter Cooling

At first spot, Datacenter cooling is the main concern for our customers. Therefore, In-Floor Cooling System for Modular Datacenters, developed by Weiss, accomplishes this key process for Datacenters.

Now available, customer can choose whether to operate via cold water system, or via Direct Expasion system. Both systems reach great charge loads ensuring whole cabinet infrastructure cooling.

Its modular construction easies cooling process. By having closed areas, ventilators intake hot air, by next cooling down air in the room, and finally ventilate it to cold corridor. After completion, the whole height of the modular Datacenter is used, creating physical isolated hot and cold corridors.

Modularity & Accessability

In addition to this, Active Panels facilitate the possibility to carry on maintenance tasks given its modular properties.

The maximal optimization of the space is crucial. In effect, one of the big advantages of Weiss solutions is the flexibility to deploy the installation and to carry on Maintenance tasks.

The Active Panels can be removed from its original position at Datacenter and replaced by the technicians in less than one hour. The connection of Active Panels to main distribution is secured by means of flexible pipes. Therefore it is so easy to carry on a basic maintenance service by the own Datacenter staff.

Fast Installation

As stated above, Active Panel installation becomes an easy process. Its modular conception enables you to keep your Datacenter working while maintenance service.

Direct Expansion Panel: In-Floor Cooling for Datacenter

Following our partner Weiss Doppelbodensysteme long time expertise in the IT & Datacenter industries, we present you the Direct Expansion Panel.

Just like our whole Product Brochure, this most recent launching remains loyal to the innovative In-Floor Cooling System for Datacenter installations. DX version Active Panel is located under raised floor. Thus, optimizing Datacenter footprint space.

This time, our solution operates via a DX circuit, rather than previous cold water circuits.

Functions

Each Panel consists of 1200mm x 600mm x 550mm dimensions. Equipped with four EC fans and DX heat exchangers units with a free cross section of 44% surface.

Direct Expansion Panels will be located under raised floor and placed in front of each rack cabinets line. The tile can be configurated in both options: as aspiration mode in hot aisle and/or ventilation mode in cold aisle. This easing air direction according to your installation specific needs.

Active Panel is in charge of air cooling thanks to cooling agent. Thus, it enables to work with low degree temperatures. Built in humidifiers and condense water discharges are key for precision airconditioning in your Datacenter.

In addition, EC fan turbines are in charge of air flow ventilation. By directing cooled air to rack cabinets located at cold aisle. In fact, each panel unit will achieve 6.000m3/h air flow value.

Regarding control devices. Fans automatically react to temperature changes in rack cabinets. In effect, the reduction or increase of desired airflow can be established based on two different values. Whether by temperature values or according to air pressure values. This will be previously configurated before shipment.

DX HydroLogic Panel Properties

Direct Expansion Panel may reach charge loads up to 30Kw per unit. Designed to perform via cooling agent, the panel reaches a 5ºC evaporation temperature. Therefore, the presence of humidifiers and condensate processes.

The Panel requires of a 550mm minimum installation height. However, its location guarantees a great space optimization since Datacenter footprint completely devotes to servers hosting at 19” rack cabinets. Further to this, it offers a notably modular capacity for future updates. Moreover, in case of raised floor reparation, DX-Box panel keeps operating with no major affectation.

Control settings for air flow ventilation. As stated above, air flow can be regulated according to temperature values or, alternatively, by air pressure values. Its adjustment must be established previous installation. In effect, such setting grants you with full air flow control for each cabinet line.

HydroLogic V Panel: In-Floor Cooling System for Datacenter

Long time experience in the IT industry, interacting with all kinds of air conditioning technologies, has led Weiss Doppelbodensysteme GmbH to develop a unique and differential solution for In-floor Datacenter cooling.

By installing Active Panels under raised floor, the entire room overcomes most common difficulties of conventional systems for Datacenter cooling.

This is how the HydroLogic V Panel was born. The 600mmx1200mm tile is located under the raised floor. Thus, optimizing Datacenter footprint space. Likewise, HydroLogic V Panel is in charge of Datacenter cooling thanks to its cold water circuit or, alternatively via Direct Expansion (DX).

Functionment

Each panel consists of two heat exchangers and four EC fans with a free cross section of 44% surface. The tile can be configured both aspiration function in the hot aisle and / or ventilation mode in the cold aisle.

Active Panels, located under raised floor and placed in front of rack cabinets line, are connected to the main distribution points of the system. Inlet water allows both heat exchangers to cool down air temperature originating in the hot aisle. Following, fans conduct the cooled air back to the cold aisle. Innovative and unique In-floor Datacenter cooling system.

Two different A&B circuits can be installed in order to achieve local redundancy. Active Panels act local for a given area in case there is a lack of or insufficient air flow. Also, it is possible to grow on demand by installating more Active Panels in the corridor, at the exact point where Datacenter may require it.

Two circuit line installation providing great modularity and easing grow on demand

Fans automatically react to temperature changes in rack cabinets. In effect, the reduction or increase of desired airflow can be established based on 2 values. Whether by temperature values or according to air pressure values. This will be previously configurated before shipment.

HydroLogic V Panel Properties

Active Panel tile with 600mmx1200mm format may reach charge loads of up to 40Kw. Designed to perform under 12ºC temperature for inlet water. With a specific V-shaped design to handle possible condensation. Thanks to a lower condensation gravitational control tray, and an optional condensate pump. HydroLogic V Panel incorporates 4 EC turbines with a cooling capacity of up to 40Kw and a maximum consumption of 720w.

Following Weiss Doppelbodensysteme range of Active Panels, our solution has a remarkable modularity capacity for future installation renovations. Notably, such tile provides a great space optimization: Datacenter footprint is entirely devoted to servers hosting in 19” rack cabinets.

Custom settings for air flow control: HydroLogic V Panel can regulate its air flow according to temperature values or by air pressure values. Its adjustment must be defined previous to installation. Such setting grants full air flow control according to corridor needs. Therefore, air flow will be regulated for each area as required. Likewise, regarding external effects such as temperature changes, its effects on Datacenter installation will be reduced.

Control setting systems for Active Panels offer several options. It grants the possibility for remote control, snmp integration, Bacnet, among other options.
