Schneider Electric unveils new high-capacity data center cooling units
Schneider Electric has expanded its Uniflair LE cooling unit portfolio.
Schneider Electric has announced an expansion of its Uniflair LE cooling unit portfolio with the introduction of the Uniflair LE HDCV 4500 and HDCV 5000 models, addressing the needs of data centers where higher cooling capacities and optimized efficiency are required.
Intended for large data centers (primarily cloud and colocation facilities) the Uniflair LE HDCV 4500, which occupies the same dimensions and footprint as the 4300 model, and the HDCV 5000 utilize a newly designed coil system and under-floor fan module to deliver 20% higher cooling capacity, while drawing less power. This provides efficient room-level cooling for large data center environments and reduces OPEX.
“As industry standards drive increasingly strict efficiency requirements, data center managers — particularly ones operating large facilities — are under a growing amount of pressure to keep cooling and energy costs down while also optimizing operations and reducing potential downtime,” says Anne-Marie Gignac, vice president, cooling, IT Business, Schneider Electric. “Schneider Electric’s new Uniflair LE HDCV 4500/5000 solutions provide an innovative way for data center managers to achieve increased heat rejection and availability while also reducing costs.”
Now available with a 575V input power option for Canadian users, additional features of the Uniflair LE HDCV 4500 and HDCV 5000 include: a new 7 in. touch screen display that allows for easy navigation of the microprocessor controller to clearly view unit conditions and configurations; updated controller and communications via an integrated serial card for seamless integration to BMS using Modbus protocol; an optional ultra-capacitor Back-up Power Option: Provides power ride-through to the controller in the system, allowing the system to return to full capacity more quickly in the event of a power outage; dual power supply w/ATS option featuring dual power inputs with a built-in automatic transfer switch, providing users the ability to feed two independent power supplies to the unit for redundancy and recovery during power disturbances; five air discharge configurations, which provides the ability to customize down flow plenum by blanking desired panels (options include bottom, front, front and sides, rear, and open discharge; and optional high efficiency filter plenum, which decreases pressure drop to increase efficiency.
The Uniflair LE HDV4500 and HDCV5000 also come with Schneider Electric’s optional Start-up Service, which provides a one-year warranty on parts, with labor and travel included. Furthering its investment in cooling efficiency, Schneider Electric has condurrently announced new enhancements to its Uniflair LE 60Hz Direct Expansion offer for North America, including 575 VAC/60Hz power, a new color touch-screen display and a host of factory-installed options and accessories for flexibility and simple, cost-effective installation.
