For more efficient rack cooling

In the CyberRow, in-line air conditioning unit, innovative horizontal air conduction has been enhanced with state-of-the-art technology that works with power, flexibility and efficiency – directly at the rack. Fluctuating server rack loads, space restrictions, lack of a raised floor, existing high-density server technology – these are exactly the cases from server rack cooling practice for which CyberRow was developed.

Virtual Containment

Unique air conduction

With the CyberRow, STULZ offers an efficient air conditioning solution that is positioned directly between the racks in the server room. Thanks to the innovative horizontal air conduction, the supply air is directed to the server racks and forms a cold air curtain in front of them. There is no air turbulence, which means that up to six server racks can be cooled simultaneously. The high efficiency of the CyberRow units is possible due to their proximity to the server rack: their unique air conduction prevents hot and cold air from mixing. This air conduction is like a virtual containment, dispensing with the need to build actual containments.

Unique air conduction

No air turbulence during server rack cooling

The virtual containment can be clearly seen in this picture. The air flow virtually sticks to the server racks and there is no air turbulence. The cold air takes a direct route to the front of the rack-based servers.

CFD visualization

The red areas – around the EC fans – show that the fans emit the cold air at a very high speed (approx. 9–11 m/s) at the outlets. However, this is only the case as long as the air is in the housing. The partitions installed between the EC fans channel the air flow and the air baffles at the outlet ensure uniform distribution across the entire height of the racks. 

Conventional Containment
Cold aisle containment

 

CyberRow units with frontal air outlets are used for the cold aisle containment. Here, the air conditioning units no longer supply air to the neighboring racks, but to the entire cold aisle. To ensure an optimum supply of cold air, the units are positioned at an offset to one another. The containment completely stops the airflows from mixing, ensuring efficient operation.

Hot aisle containment

 

For a hot aisle containment, CyberRow units with side air conduction are used. Expelling the cold air sideways ensures uniform distribution along the whole length of the aisle, while the containment effectively separates the hot and cold air. The airflows are completely prevented from mixing, further enhancing the server rack cooling’s efficiency.

Fixed setpoints for maximum efficiency

Three temperature sensors on the front and three on the back of the unit, plus up to five fans, ensure precise measurement and regulation of the desired Delta T.
 

Individual supply air boost in three zones

Cooling capacity in each zone is individually adapted to the cooling needs of the servers. So by increasing the airflow rate, the individually required cooling capacity is delivered and perfect operation guaranteed, even with fluctuating loads. This prevents hot spots from forming, and with no need for energy-intensive oversupply.

Sizes

Minimal footprint

Maximum efficiency, precise cooling capacity and a small footprint – the CyberRow is available in three widths and two depths and ensures cost-effective and reliable operation in all situations. The individual units are positioned directly between the server racks, and their compact design leaves even more space free for your IT equipment. The units are suitable for racks from any manufacturer, and are available in different depths which enables easy maintenance access from the front and rear at any rack depth.

 

CyberRow units are available in 300, 400 and 600 mm widths.

The two different unit depths provide easy rear service access to racks of any depth and without any drop in pressure.

Cooling systems

Energy efficiency, capital investment, operating costs, room size, noise protection, redundancy, local climate – every project has its own specific requirements when it comes to precise air conditioning. That’s why STULZ offers you the opportunity to have the units precisely adapted to your project’s individual requirements. The right air conditioning system is a crucial factor here. The CyberRow is available in five different data center cooling systems, to help you achieve the ideal balance between investment, operating costs and energy efficiency.

 

Air-cooled system (A/AS)

Heat is extracted from the room air as it flows through the evaporator, and is then transferred to the refrigerant. The air conditioning unit and condenser are connected to one another by a closed refrigerant circuit. The refrigerant emits the heat to the outside air via the air-cooled condenser.

Water-cooled system (GS)

Our water-cooled system works like the air-cooled system, with one difference: the heat from the refrigerant circuit is transferred to a cooling water circuit via a brazed plate condenser integrated in the air conditioning unit. This way, the amount of refrigerant required is low. The heat in the cooling water circuit is then discharged into the outside air via an external dry cooler. 

Hybrid Free Cooling system (GES)

This server rack cooling system functions like the GS system, but additionally features an integrated Free Cooling coil. This way, energy-intensive compressor cooling can be wholly or partially dispensed with at low or temperate outside temperatures. The heat is transferred directly to the cooling water circuit by the integrated Free Cooling coil, and discharged into the outside air via an external dry cooler. 

  • Indirect Dynamic Free Cooling
    The GES system features dynamic switching operation and control, which guarantees reliable and efficient operation. The combination of Indirect Free Cooling and variable-speed components enables precise cooling adapted to the current heat load, and cuts overall energy consumption to a minimum.
  • Minimal compressor running time
    Using Indirect Free Cooling, the hybrid Free Cooling system exploits the cooling potential of outside air as soon as outside temperatures allow. This enables energy-intensive compressor cooling to be partially or even wholly dispensed with.
  • No oversupply
    The variable-speed components ensure that precisely the required cooling capacity is generated. There is therefore no energy-intensive oversupply during the server rack cooling process.
  • Minimal refrigerant quantities
    As the hybrid Free Cooling system is water-cooled, it only needs a minimal quantity of refrigerant. The result is environmentally friendly operation with reduced greenhouse gas emissions, for a forward-looking investment in the future.
Chilled water system (CW/CW2)

The air conditioning unit with CW system manages without a refrigerant circuit of its own, but requires a separate chiller. The air conditioning unit and chiller are connected to one another by a closed water-glycol circuit.
For high-availability systems, the CW2 system offers a redundant chilled water supply by connecting one air conditioning unit to two chilled water circuits.

Efficient server rack cooling:
Synchronized complete systems

Air conditioning solutions from STULZ offer synchronized complete systems that work efficiently and reliably. Thanks to energy savings and operational reliability, your investment in the quality, operational reliability and efficiency of STULZ air conditioning and chilled water solutions rapidly pays off during operation.

To ensure optimum integration, STULZ offers an extensive portfolio of chillers for indoor and outdoor installation. Select the right unit for your requirements and enjoy the additional benefits of Free Cooling for your air conditioned server rack.

Project story: Ideal room climate for optimum printing processes

STULZ optimises critical print production conditions at Paragon Customer Communications

When it comes to guaranteeing the fast turn-around of critical regulatory communications, using the fastest print presses in the world, capable of producing up to two million pages a day, Paragon Customer Communications (Paragon CC) know that effective service delivery is increasingly reliant on room  temperatures and humidity.

Paragon was looking for a tailored Air Conditioning solution for their demanding facilities in both a print room and a data centre. Reliability of equipment, no down-time and energy efficiency were the main  drivers, and this is exactly where STULZ could offer a tailored solution providing the equipment and technology needed for cost efficient perfect environmental conditions.
