Black Box Cold Row Intelligent Rack CoolingSource: Black Box Network Services
Designed for scalability, reliability, and seamless integration into new or existing data centers, Black Box Cold Row rack cooling systems are suitable for use in open and contained hot aisle and cold aisle configurations.
Cold Row is ideal for hot spot cooling in small- to enterprise-size data centers.
Open Aisle Configuration
Racks are configured in a single row or in hot and cold aisle rows, but without containment. Cold Row draws hot air from the external environment or hot aisle, removes the heat, and supplies cooled air to the front of IT equipment in the cold aisle.
Hot Aisle Capture
Hot exhaust air from IT equipment is contained so that it doesn’t mix with cool air. The front of IT equipment is accessed in the external cold aisle. Cold Row draws the contained hot air from the hot aisle, removes the heat, and supplies cooled air into the external cold aisle.
Cold Aisle Capture
This configuration takes cooled air from Cold Row and contains it so that it doesn’t mix with hot air. The front of IT equipment is accessed in the contained cold aisle. Cold Row draws hot air from the external environment, removes the heat, and supplies cooled air back into the captured cold aisle.
