The common rule states that for every 10 degrees Celsius, the lifespan of components gets halved, that’s why data centers, telecom or server room require 24 hours of air conditioning per day, 365 days a year without interruption.
Unlike comfort air conditioners, which are designed to cool people, precision air conditioners are designed to cool sensitive IT equipment. The main function of the precision air conditioner is to control the temperature and humidity of the IT room. Because in addition to temperature, excessive humidity can also affect the normal operation of the device. So what are the advantages or benefits of precision air conditioners compared to comfort air conditioners?
Benefits of installing a Precision Air Conditioning System
1. Can be operated continuously 24 x 7 for 365 days
2. Ensure accurate temperature control in ± 34ºF
3. Precise humidity control in ± 5%
4. Demonstrate better air distribution
5. Moves more air volume at higher speeds than standard Air Conditioner's.
5. Effective cooling for the proximal & remote device.
6.Space-saving: Rack mounted precision air conditioners are designed to be installed in the server racks, which helps to save floor space.
7.Better air distribution: A precision air conditioner is capable of delivering conditioned air directly to the heat generating equipment. This ensures better airflow and temperature management, which leads to enhanced equipment performance.
8.Increased efficiency: Rack mounted precision air conditioners are highly efficient and are designed to operate at optimal levels, regardless of the room temperature. This ensures that the room remains cool and dry at all times, which reduces the risk of equipment failure.
9.Improved reliability: Precision air conditioners offer better control over temperature and humidity, which ensures that the equipment remains in optimal condition at all times. This reduces the risk of equipment failure due to overheating or humidity-related issues.
10.Lower maintenance costs: Precision air conditioners are designed to be low maintenance, which helps to reduce operational costs. They are also equipped with advanced monitoring systems that provide alerts for any issues, which allows for proactive maintenance and repairs.
Due to the aforementioned advantages shared by precision air conditioners, they have been widely used to cool high-density heat loads. For small IT rooms today, people use rack-type or small precision cooling to ensure IT equipment performs at optimal levels. While in the medium and large data center, several units of precision air conditioners (in-row type or room type) can coordinate with each other to provide effective cooling.
