The HP 10K G2 Air Duct rack cooling solution is designed for data center managers looking to eliminate hot spots while optimizing air cooling. It channels hot exhaust air from the rear of the rack directly into the air return to eliminate hot spots and air mixing, increasing cooling efficiency by returning hotter air to the computer room air-handler units. This rack cooling solution suits racks using5 to 14 kW power. The air duct is height-adjustable and has no fans or moving parts. The unit uses pressure from the computer room air conditioning (CRAC) unit to extract air from the rack, and can be retrofitted to existing problem racks or can work with single or multiple racks.
