Calif.’s New Title 24 Goes into Effect
July 01, 2014
Properly managing airflow in the data center is no longer an option in California, it’s now a requirement.
As of today, July 1, the state’s Title 24 of the Building Efficiency Standards mandates that every newly constructed data center must have some form of airflow containment in place.
When air recirculates and bypasses freely in the facility, server inlet temperatures change inadvertently, which not only damages equipment over time, but also results in more electricity being spent on cooling.
Chatsworth Products’ (CPI) Aisle Containment Solutions can help companies comply with this new requirement.
“The performance specification for our aisle containment solutions is one of, if not, the best in the industry,” says Samuel Rodriguez, CPI Product Manager of Cabinet & Thermal Solutions.
With CPI Aisle Containment Solutions, it is possible to achieve “free cooling” in the data center by isolating, redirecting and recycling hot exhaust air.
CPI’s full line of containment solutions is available in four standard configurations in hot aisle containment (HAC) or cold aisle containment (CAC) environments, each addressing the most pressing data center cooling needs, including ones that can be completely customized on site.
