Energy efficiency & reliability

New size specifically for large and hyperscale data centers

ABR range

This size for chilled water air conditioners was developed to meet the requirements of large data centers while keeping an eye on efficiency and reliability. By maximizing unit dimensions, this new size delivers more cooling capacity per footprint and increases efficiency in large and hyperscale data centers.

Benefits of the ABR range

  • High cooling capacity per footprint
  • Minimum fan power consumption thanks to the reduced internal pressure losses
  • Optimized Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER)
  • Optimized Airflow Efficiency Ratio (AER) and therefore air conduction with maximum efficiency
  • Increased Free Cooling times of the chiller due to higher air and water temperatures
  • Optimization of air temperatures based on the ASHRAE recommendation
  • Reduced water flow rate and therefore lower overall power consumption of the system and lower investment costs as smaller hydraulic components can be used

Sizes

 

Free Cooling

Two different Free Cooling methods are used, depending on how the outside air is used. If the outside air is conveyed directly inside the building, this is Direct Free Cooling. If the outside air does not penetrate the sensitive interior of the building, this is Indirect Free Cooling. Both methods offer advantages but entail certain challenges. We individually check which version best matches your needs, requirements, and intended use - and which solution provides you with the best value over the life of the system.

Savings potential with Direct Free Cooling

Direct Free Cooling

The CyberAir 3PRO DX precision air conditioning system with Direct Free Cooling air conditions Data Centers up to 90 % more economically than conventional compressor cooling systems. Direct Free Cooling exploits the potential of outside temperatures to air condition the data center using the cool outside air. Via the CyberAir 3PRO CW, the outside air, which has been treated by filter systems, gets directly into the server room.                                                 

CyberAir 3PRO CW units with downflow air conduction can be equipped with the FreeCool Plenum Free Cooling box. The FCP design with the dampers on top is a flexible construction that takes up no extra space for the chilled water air conditioner. With this option, Free Cooling is automatically combined with the chiller system's compressor cooling in three variable stages, to suit the outside temperature and cooling needs, ensuring that maximum savings are always exploited to the full.

Indirect Dynamic Free Cooling

Indirect Dynamic Free Cooling from STULZ is the only system worldwide with automatic efficiency optimization. The dynamic switching operation and control reduces the compressor running time to a minimum and reduces the total energy consumption by up to 60%, taking into account all active components.

The system cools precisely and dynamically according to the current heat load. This means that only the required cooling capacity is ever generated by the chilled water air conditioner and there is no energy-intensive oversupply. Taking into consideration outside temperature and current heat load, the dynamic switching operation and control selects the optimum operating mode without a fixed Free Cooling start value.

Fans in the raised floor

Optimized unit design for maximum potential savings

The design of our units means that STULZ precision air conditioning units boast maximum EER values and the lowest AER (Airflow Efficiency Ratio) values, and therefore achieve air conduction with maximum efficiency. The AER describes the ratio of the fan power consumption to the airflow. ASR air conduction (fans integrated in the raised floor), in particular, hugely reduces fan power consumption by ensuring minimal turbulence and changes in airflow direction, for energy savings that you will notice straight away. 

Precise temperature regulation

Delta T

The air-side difference in temperature between the air inlet and outlet of server cabinets and air conditioning systems is known as ΔT. To ensure optimum operation and the greatest possible savings on running costs, it is vital that the ΔT of the air conditioning units is adapted precisely and efficiently to the ΔT of your server cabinets.

Our dynamic control enables ΔT to be adapted to changing IT requirements, ensuring maximum energy efficiency during operation.

Temperature profile

Optimum supply air conditions for reliability and maximum efficiency

To cool your data center as efficiently as possible without compromising on reliability, ASHRAE has published a recommendation for the air temperature at the server inlet. We have been developing chilled water air conditioning units for mission-critical applications - where even tiny malfunctions can have serious consequences - for decades now. Not only that, we have always focused on energy efficiency, and because of this, the supply air temperatures of our units lie within ASHRAE's recommended range.

Pressure independent control valve

Chilled water air conditioner with pressure independent 2-way control ball valve

CyberAir 3PRO CW can be equipped with a pressure independent control valve. Here always the full-load water flowrate is set as a setpoint. The valve regulates the required water volume depending on the load.

"Pressure independent" means that the consumer always receives the correct water flowrate and that the control accuracy does not depend on the position of the valve as well as the pressure conditions in the hydraulic system.

Benefits of the pressure independent control valve

  • Simple and fast valve layout depending on the required water flowrate
  • No throttles and control valves necessary
  • No lenghty and personnel intensive hydraulic adjustment
  • Stable and precise regulation in each load condition by firmly defined water flowrate
  • Water flowrate can be read out
  • Flexibly settable water flowrate

Standby management

We create redundancy in our air conditioning units, to provide you with the most reliable air conditioning possible. To do this, we install more units than are actually needed for air conditioning.

With the usual, passive form of redundancy, these units are only started up (automatically) if a unit that is running switches off due to a fault. With STULZ standby management, on the other hand, active redundancy exploits the potential of the EC fans. While the total airflow remains the same, the use of standby units per unit is reduced. The reduced airflow cuts fan power consumption and associated operating costs even further. In all, this measure not only lowers operating costs but also reduces overall noise. If a unit fails, the speed of all the fans of the other units increases.

Standby Management for CW units

Passive redundancy

With passive redundancy, the active air conditioning units continuously run at full load. The standby unit remains unused.

Active redundancy

STULZ standby management uses active redundancy to distribute reserve capacity evenly between all air conditioning units in partial load mode. If individual units fail or require maintenance, the remaining units automatically switch to controlled full load operation.

Upflow, Downflow and Raised Floor

Downflow and Upflow versions

The design with integrated fans is available with standard Downflow (ASD) and Upflow (ASU) air conduction. Through further development and by optimizing the design, the units are now considerably more efficient than the chilled water air conditioner's previous version.

This can be witnessed in the noticeably higher Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) and lower Airflow Efficiency Ratio (AER).

Raised Floor version

The Raised Floor (ASR) series promises even higher energy savings than units with fans on the raised floor. This model is equipped with an external fan box, and air conduction is specific to the unit. The fan box is installed under the unit, in the raised floor.

The resulting additional space in the air conditioning unit can be used for larger heat exchangers, resulting in a noticeably higher cooling capacity for the footprint. What’s more, positioning the fans in the raised floor means less turbulence and fewer changes in airflow direction. The result is ideal air conduction and therefore massively reduced fan power consumption (AER).

Cooling Systems

STULZ offers individual system solutions adapted precisely to your project requirements.

CW system

CW system: Liquid cooled system

CW units manage without a refrigerant circuit of their own, but require separate chilled water generation. The room air conveyed by the fan flows through the direct cooling unit, which transfers heat to the water/glycol mixture. A chiller removes the heat from this water/glycol mixture. The air conditioning unit and the chiller are connected to one another by a closed water/glycol circuit.

CW2 System

CW2 system: Liquid cooled system with built-in redundancy

High-reliability systems frequently require a second, independent chilled water supply. Therefore, in the CW2 system two redundant CW systems are integrated in a single air conditioning unit, saving valuable space in the Data Center.
