Posted By: Degree Controls Inc.

As managers monitor raised floor data centers and identify hot spots that need to be addressed, they often turn to the HotSpotr™ HT-510 thermostatically controlled air mover to solve cooling issues. The HT-510 is an underfloor air mover, DC fan tray cooling tile. It delivers a variable volume of cooling air upward, to the inlet side of […]

Floor tile airflow measurements in datacenters
Posted By: Degree Controls Inc.

Perforated Floor Tile Airflow Measurements Data center cooling is key to protecting IT equipment, maximizing capacity, and optimizing efficiency. In a raised floor data center, cool air is pumped into an underfloor plenum and delivered to IT equipment through perforated floor tiles. Measuring airflow rates through these floor tiles is essential to validate CFD models, […]
