Rack-Level Airflow Controls

data center rack airflow controlsWith the HotSpotrTM active airflow management platform, data center airflow is augmented at the rack-level or facility scale to yield capacity gains, conserve energy expended on cooling, and serve as an automated redundancy measure to protect IT assets from thermal spikes or CRAC/CRAH failures. Our HotSpotrTM assets are the only networkable products on the market configured for seamless integration with existing cooling infrastructure and building system control architectures in the data center. Colocation and enterprise managers from every segment of the data center industry turn to this robust, hassle-free solution platform for maximum airflow control and thermal safety, with demonstrated capacity improvements of 30% or greater in mission-critical facilities.

The HotSpotrTM  Solution Mitigates Common Problems in the Data Center including:
  • Asset vulnerability in the event of cooling infrastructure (CRAC/CRAH) failures
  • Thermal spikes around high-density racks
  • Overcooling in zones with poor airflow distribution
  • Areas with too many or too few perforated tiles
  • Turbulent underfloor plenum conditions or blockages
  • IT racks and servers with highly variable kWh load
  • Capacity limitations due to untapped cooling infrastructure efficacy 
  • High TCO due to poor PUE ranking
