Rack Cooling, LCP DX Rack & Inline



LCP Rack DX

The LCP draws in air from the sides and rear of the server enclosures, air is cooled using high-performance compact impellers, and blown back into the front part of the server rack.


LCP Inline DX

The LCP is designed for siting within a bayed enclosure suite. Hot air is drawn in from the room or hot aisle at the rear of the device, it is cooled by the high-capacity compact impellers, and blown back into the room or cool aisle.


LCP Inline

Benefits

  • Maximum energy efficiency thanks to EC fan technology and IT-based control
  • Minimal pressure loss at the air end, which in turn minimises the power consumption of the fans
  • Optimum adaptability thanks to dynamic, continuous control of the cold water volume flow
  • By using high water inlet temperatures, the proportion of indirect free cooling is increased, which in turn reduces operating costs.
  • Thanks to six modular, box-type plug-in fan units, the cooling output can be adapted to actual requirements
  • The box-type plug-in fan units are configurable as n+1 redundancy
  • Standard 3-phase connection for electrical redundancy
  • With redundant temperature sensor integrated at the air end as standard
  • The separation of cooling and rack prevents water from penetrating the server enclosure
  • Up to 60 kW cooling output on a footprint of just 0.36 m²
  • The low weight means a minimal load area
  • Touch screen display may be retro-fitted
Monitoring
Monitoring of all system-relevant parameters such as:
  • Server air intake temperature
  • Server waste air temperature
  • Water inlet/return temperature
  • Water flow
  • Cooling output
  • Fan speed
  • Leakage
  • Optional sensors
  • Direct connection of the unit via snmp/Ethernet
  • Integration into RiZone
Application and mode of operation

The LCP is designed for siting within a bayed enclosure suite.
The hot air is drawn in from the room or hot aisle at the rear of the device and expelled at the front into the cold aisle after cooling. The LCP achieves maximum performance and efficiency in conjunction with Rittal cold aisle containment. With this product, a raised floor is not necessary.

 

LCP Plus

Energy costs and availability of climate control in data centres is becoming increasingly more important. Rittal Liquid Cooling concepts ensure precise, problem free heat loss dissipation of up to 60kW per rack.

  • Integration into RiZone (data centre management software)

 

LCP T3+

  • Redundant heat exchanger concept with two active water circuits (A/B medium supply)
  • Redundant power infeed (A/B power supply) with automatic changeover in case of an emergency
  • Fully redundant cooling output of 24 kW
  • Redundant fan configuration
  • Integrated controller with its own web server for network and BMS interfaces
  • Auto-load balancing function
  • Auto-recovery function
  • Energy saving with high water inlet temperatures (more free cooling)
  • Minimisation of operating costs with efficient EC fan technology
  • Integration into RiZone

Rack Climate Control

The LCP for rack climate control is designed for siting within a bayed enclosure suite. The cold air is expelled sideways on the front of the servers, and warm air is drawn back in at the rear. The LCP for rack climate control is ideal for maximum cooling performance and maximum fail-safeness, thanks to redundancy of all key components.

A large-scale high-capacity air/water heat exchanger, designed as the rear door of the server enclosure, ensures that heated waste air from the servers is cooled down to server intake air level. This is achieved extremely energy-efficiently, because no electrical power is required for fans. High inlet temperatures above the dew point improve energy efficiency still further.

Row Based Cooling

The LCP for bayed climate control is designed for siting within a bayed enclosure suite. The hot air is drawn in from the room or hot aisle at the rear of the device and expelled at the front into the cold aisle after cooling. The LCP for inline bayed climate control achieves maximum performance and efficiency in conjunction with Rittal cold aisle containment.

Benefits

  • Maximum energy efficiency by positioning the EC fan technology in the cold air zone with a considerably extended service life
  • Minimal pressure loss at the air end, which in turn minimises the power consumption of the fans
  • Optimum adaptability thanks to dynamic, continuous control of the cold water volume flow
  • By using high water inlet temperatures, the proportion of indirect free cooling is increased, which in turn reduces operating costs
