May 2008 - CPI Passive Cooling™ Solutions Achieve Green IT Infrastructure Results

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., May 2008—Chatsworth Products, Inc. (CPI), a leading manufacturer that sets the BENCHMARK by providing superior structural support to organize, store and secure IT infrastructure equipment helps achieve green IT infrastructure results with CPI Passive Cooling™ Solutions, the Simply Efficient™ choice.

Simply-Efficient-Logo-150.gifWith today’s data centers consuming significant amounts of energy to cool increasing density requirements, responsible thermal management practices have become crucial for survival. To overcome thermal issues and help achieve green IT infrastructure results, CPI Passive Cooling Solutions used with the TeraFrame™ Family of Cabinets, provide innovative thermal management techniques to maximize cooling unit efficiency, reduce energy costs up to 40% and overall energy consumption and minimize environmental impact, making them the Simply Efficient choice. From small applications with heat loads of 2 kW per cabinet, to large applications with heat densities beyond 20+ kW, CPI Passive Cooling Solutions provide advanced thermal control with zero points of failure, thus delivering a Tier IV solution.By isolating hot exhaust air from cool supply air and blocking bypass airflow around equipment, CPI Passive Cooling Solutions reduce wasted cooling capacity and maximize the flow of cool air throughout the cabinet and data center without the need for additional CRAC units, in-row air conditioners or risky liquid cooling solutions. Since no additional power or plumbing is required, construction costs associated with CPI Passive Cooling Solutions are much lower compared to active cooling solutions.

The hot air isolation achieved with CPI Passive Cooling creates a consistent air temperature throughout the data center, eliminating the cabinet’s dependency on close proximity perforated access floor tiles for cool air. Since CPI Passive Cooling Solutions utilize 100% of the HVAC cool supply air, CRAC unit efficiency is maximized and the data centers thermostat temperature can be increased, which decreases overall energy consumption and operating costs, while effectively protecting critical equipment. Due to the 100% utilization of HVAC cool supply air and maximized cooling efficiency, CPI Passive Cooling Solutions also permit higher heat and power densities to be added to the data center.

The thermal management techniques used by CPI Passive Cooling Solutions were established through collaborations with today’s most innovative and forward-thinking companies to help solve their own data center thermal issues. By developing and testing these solutions with industry-leading IT equipment manufacturers, financial institutions and IT management organizations, CPI Passive Cooling Solutions have been proven to provide maximum efficiency and solve high-density data center cooling problems.
