In Row Air Conditioner

APC’s ACSC 100 in row modular air conditioner is designed for small to large data centers. The rear intake air return is great for hot aisle / cold aisle layouts, and improves efficiency using a small footprint within your data center.

The design prevents hot air recirculation, while improving cooling predictability and allowing for a pay as you grow environment. IT operators looking to improve efficiency or deploy higher density equipment will benefit from the modular design of the in row air conditioner

Predictable Cooling Placing the unit in the row of racks moves the source of cooling closer to to the heat load. This eliminates air mixing and provides a predictable cooling architecture.
In Row Architecture Captures hot exhaust air directly from IT equipment, thereby increasing the unit’s sensible cooling capacity over traditional cooling architectures.
Modular Design Modular design provides scalable solutions to add cooling as demand increases.
Active Response Controls Monitors and actively adjusts cooling capacity to ensure proper server inlet temperatures. Through the microprocessor controller, visibility into the operation and health of the unit is provided.
Network Manageable View the user interface with a browser. Provides quick access from anywhere on a secure network.
Building Management Integration Send alarms and data points allowing you to manage critical building infrastructure from a single system.
Rack Inlet Temperature Control Measures inlet temperatures of adjacent racks to reduce the risk of hot spots at the rack level.
Variable Speed Fans Variable speed fans reduce energy consumption during off-peak cooling periods.
Easy to Install Innovative design allows for fast, easy installation by almost anybody. The unit is quickly and easily installed without refrigerant lines or remote heat exchangers. It requires only power, condensate drain and an available return plenum (drop ceiling) to provide effective cooling.
Fault-tolerant Fan System In the event of a fan failure, the remaining fan(s) will continue to operate.
Built-In Condensate Pump Factory installed pump collects and removes water from air conditioner, ensuring continuous operation.
Automatic Restart Returns the unit to its last operating status in the event of a power failure.
Coil Freeze Protection Hot gas bypass prevents evaporator coil from freezing during light load conditions.
High Head Pressure Protection Ensures the air conditioner remains operational even when the condenser inlet air is restricted or very hot.
Easy Service Access In row equipment allows for all serviceable components to be replaced/ maintained in the hot or cold aisle.
