Energy efficient rack system

Development of an energy-efficient encapsulated rack system.

Project duration: 2010 bis 2011  

Merkle Partner encapsulated rack system

Development of an energy-efficient rack system that is also suitable for use in non-special IT rooms and can therefore also be integrated into existing solutions. 

The cold air is directed to the consumers in order to cool them specifically and efficiently. 

Due to the encapsulation and the avoidance of vortices and dead water areas, a lower air volume is required. The optimizations were carried out using CFD calculations and were confirmed in the test.
