What is Hot Aisle Containment?
Hot aisle containment is a layout system for computing equipment in data centres. The aim of this system is to conserve energy and decrease cooling costs by managing the air flow (not letting the hot and cold air mix) for optimum efficiency.
As engineering has progressed, there are ways hot aisle containment can be monitored through different applications that use specific products, such as variable fan drives (VFDs), to prevent cold air and hot air from combining.
Boiswood offer a range of perfect products that can be used within hot aisle containment systems.
Products for Data Centre Applications
- The Lite Room Pressure Indicator accurately displays and monitors room differential pressure in an area that demands manual verification. The easy-to-use visual display shows a ring of light; a simple green status and red that means there’s an issue. This allows the managing staff to swiftly and simply correct an issue with the room pressure. The Lite has more features that include an always-on digital display that shows the pressure value, POS or NEG room mode and an alarm delay for door entry. The Lite is accurate and reliable, whilst also being cost-effective and simple to install. It integrates perfectly with the Setra FLEX.
- The 267 Very Low Differential Pressure Transducer is a high accuracy, low differential pressure transducer. It delivers accuracies of ±0.25%, 0.4%, 0.5% and ±1% FS and pressure ranges from 0.1” W.C. up to 100” W.C. The material and installation costs are reduced when using the model 267 as it has a NEMA 4 rated enclosure and has an optional static pressure probe. The 267 is a reliable product that can be offered with fast delivery and is very competitive on price.
- The RFO Rotorflow Flow Monitor is a combination of high visibility rotors and solid-state electronics that are compacted into panel mounting housings. The RFO provides accurate flow rate output which is perfect for a hot aisle containment application. The RFO offers an unprecedented price/performance ratio.
