Data Centers

Dense blade servers and network switches are pushing the thermal envelope further and further, leaving IT and facility managers struggling to keep up with skyrocketing energy costs.  

At Chatsworth Products (CPI), we provide flexible cabinet solutions, power monitoring, cable management and air containment strategies that can reduce energy consumption by up to 90 percent. This unique combination of exceptional quality, solutions and services will help you achieve your data center objectives, including points toward Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).

Here are some steps to help you get there successfully:

1. Utilize Your Space  

Our solutions allow your data center to grow one cabinet at a time or all at once. To fully utilize each square foot of space, you need to design around specific architectural concerns such as access floor height, ceiling height and layout challenges, as well as various requirements for airflow, power and network connections. Our IT infrastructure products are designed with these challenges in mind, and our support specialists are on the clock to ensure your needs are met. 

2. Optimize Cooling   

CPI Passive Cooling® Solutions are your Simply Efficient™ choice to optimize cooling in the data center. This innovative thermal management technique allows you to isolate hot air and cold air at the cabling level, cabinet level and aisle level to meet the needs of any data center layout. 

3. Our Approach to Aisle Containment

CPI has available four standard configurations, each offering a unique and versatile approach to addressing your most pressing data center cooling needs: 

(Pro tip: A critical component of any aisle containment system is the door. CPI’s Aisle Containment Door is available in a single (which opens from the left or right) or a double door option, both of which slide open and automatically close, ensuring an added layer of sealing for optimized airflow performance.)

4. Quick Return on Investment

Utilizing airflow management strategies to isolate hot and cold air, CPI Passive Cooling® Solutions provide the most cost effective and efficient thermal solutions on the market. Your investment in CPI technology provides a near-term pay back and long-term capacity to grow.

Custom Solutions

If you need a special design that CPI currently doesn’t offer, our Global Application Engineering Services Group will work with you to create the perfect Aisle Containment Solution that fits your needs.
