Intro

AirBooster 2


Airflow management for Data Centers

The new AirBooster 2 units from STULZ are deployed in the raised floor directly in front of the server rack in just a few simple steps. They utilize the same air conduction system from the air-conditioners to the racks and are controlled exactly in line with cooling needs. Fast, simple and reliable.

STULZ Airflow units - the key facts

  • Application area: IT sector

  • For medium-sized and large Data centers

  • Suitable for high-density racks up to 15 kW

AirBooster 2

AirBooster 2 – for targeted hot spot cooling

As the AirBooster 2 features manually configurable air conduction fins, this enables pinpoint cooling of hot spots where they occur. The fins are precisely directed towards target locations that require increased cooling. This concentrated airflow goes to work on the hot spots, reducing overall hot spot problems. This generates optimum supply air conditions without any complex installations or enclosures.

  1. Microcontroller
  2. EC fan

Airflow in two zones

The air stream of the AirBooster 2 units can be directed at 2 zones per server rack. Depending on the utilization of the server, the manually adjustable air conduction fins can be used to steer the air conduction towards the areas with the heaviest load.

Pinpoint cooling of hot spots in server racks

The units feature a speed-controlled EC fan, a controller and multiple temperature sensors. These sensors, which are attached to the server at different heights, measure the server inlet temperature. The controller controls the fan speed depending on the measured temperature values and a configurable setpoint.

If the server inlet temperature should rise, the fan speed is increased in order to ensure sufficient cooling of the servers.

Benefits of the AirBooster 2

AirBooster 2 variations
  • Pinpoint cooling of hot spots in server racks

  • Easy installation, operational in minimal time

  • Configurable air conduction fins for targeted air conduction in 2 zones

  • EC fan for pinpoint accuracy of air flow supply

  • Air conduction of up to 4,360 m3/h

  • Temperature measurement via 3 sensors

  • Optional pressure control

  • Low power consumption in rated operation

  • No enclosure required

  • Uwe Kudszus, Product Manager

    "The independent AirBooster units are simply installed under the raised floor and connected to the mains electricity supply, and the temperature sensors are mounted on the server rack. Now the integrated EC fans can cool the previously under-supplied rack with precisely the right amount of cooling air."

Benefits

Airflow management solutions from STULZ

Server racks deployed in a data center feature different heat loads according to the application. In this era of server virtualization and cloud technologies, changing utilization is the requirement that has to be addressed.

This results in an oversupply or undersupply of supply air to your servers, which can lead to increased operating costs or even superheating followed by server failure.

Greater flexibility for cooling data center hot spots

Airflow solutions from STULZ are installed in the raised floors between server racks and air conditioning systems and are thus able to make use of the air conduction of air conditioning systems. Under the requirement that the airflow in the raised floor is sufficient, the units supply to IT precisely according to cooling needs. Integrated sensors ensure that cold air requirements are automatically determined and the necessary airflow is provided. Fast, simple and reliable.
