New Product Announcement: CPI Introduces KoldLok Wave for Enhanced Thermal Management
July 21, 2011
Chatsworth Products, Inc.
(CPI) is pleased to announce the introduction of a premium
innovation in thermal management technology - the KoldLok® Wave™.
The latest addition to our collection of KoldLok Raised Floor
Grommets for superior sealing in CPI Passive Cooling® environments,
the KoldLok Wave uses a wave-formed thermoplastic elastomer
material instead of a nylon-bristled brush to form a tight, durable
seal around cables entering and exiting openings in access floor
tiles of the data center.
Because unsealed cable openings in access floor environments can
allow valuable conditioned air to bypass equipment, the KoldLok
Wave is uniquely constructed of a solid, yet highly flexible,
thermoplastic material that will not break, stretch, tear or deform
- even after repeated use - to ensure your IT equipment receives
the cooling it needs to operate at a high level.
Split into two halves to create a Split Integral Grommet, the
KoldLok Wave also offers increased cable capacity. Quickly
calculate your exact amount of increased capacity using CPI's Cable Fill Tables here.
For even more protection, an optional safety cover rounds out this
brand new product offering - available individually or in 10-pack
But updates to CPI's
enhanced thermal management accessories don't end there. We've also
made helpful changes to the 9.5mm (square-punched) and M6/#12-24
versions of our HotLok® Snap-In Filler
Panels. These include trimming the part number count from eight
to four, offering a more universal selection process on these
highly effective seal solutions, which prevent hot air
re-circulation in between filler panels at the cabinet level.
Available in packs of five or ten for both 1U and 2U heights, the
snap-in filler panels also offer the option of value-added
temperature strips for even greater thermal observation.
Of course, CPI's thermal management solutions extend well beyond
just grommets and filler panels. We offer a complete line of
thermal management accessories, including an Air Dam Kit, Airflow
Director and all-important Vertical Exhaust Duct (VED) to form a
total and true passive cooling solution throughout the data center
or equipment room. Be sure to browse our
thermal management accessories page and see how simply
efficient solutions can shore up even the most complex data center
