Data centres are facilities housing computer systems and other related auxiliary systems such as telecommunication, data storage etc. These facilities can also be described as the areas where corporate servers and data storages operate. Beside various units comprising a data centre, an air conditioning system is also regarded as one of the component of a data centre for sensitive cooling of the other units in the facility. In the design of a data centre project, heat gain and loss, analysis of energy efficiency and infrastructure design of equipment are important considerations from the accurate air conditioning point of view. Smooth operation and continuity of data centres depend on the specific air conditioning circumstances for heating, cooling, ventilation, dehumidification, humidification and pressure.
The air conditioning systems used in data centres are generally based on cooling and ventilation. Because the temperature and relative humidity are the most important parameters for data centres. High temperature with relative humidity below 40% cause harmful sparks and static electric discharges on data processing devices. In this case, the system fails and devices break down by time.
The investment and operation costs of a data centre air conditioning systems are optimized by the evaluation of following aspects: surrounding climate conditions; design of energy efficient systems; selection of the best resource for heating, cooling and humidification processes; accurate air conditioning operation on a proportional capacity control; aftersales technical service and periodic maintenance of the air conditioning units.
ACS will be supporting the customers with energy efficient system designs for data centres, selection
and production of the best matching components to customer requirements and aftersales periodic maintenance and technical support. We keep improving our wide range products with the continuous R&D studies.
