Schneider offers modular power and cooling facility solutions for data centres
October 22, 2011 - Schneider Electric unveiled an integrated line of modular data centre architecture solutions; 500kW of power & cooling across four parking spots, says the company, with 10% to 20% less capital than traditional methods. The systems are verified for compliance for safety, energy efficiency, compatibility and security, and enable infrastructure to be deployed and scaled as needed. These systems can extend the life of current data centres in need of supplemental power and cooling, and can be transported to new locations at the end of the data centre’s lifecycle. Addressing varying data centre cooling needs, Schneider is offering two packaged systems to meet the cooling needs of any large data centre facility: EcoBreeze, a chilled air cooling module which implements adaptable cooling based on environmental conditions and automatically selects either indirect evaporative cooling or air-to-air heat exchange; or Chilled Water Cooling Module, which consists of six modular, high-efficient chillers, two economizers and a fully integrated pump house.
