Innovative measurement technology for control and monitoring data centers demands a high degree of specialised skill. Rotronic Instruments (UK) demonstrated to BladeRoom that Rotronic devices were the optimal solution for their application. The short response time and stable measurement features were decisive.
BladeRoom is a highly energy efficient modular data centre system, providing a scalable method of quickly developing data centres with an extremely low, proven annual
Power Usage Efficiency. These modular data centers are built entirely in the factory, reducing the effort on site to a minimum. Set-up and commissioning therefore takes a fraction of the time it takes for a traditional build.
Bladeroom contributes one vital factor the success of a business: the control of the environmental conditions within very tight tolerances, assuring the reliability of the cooling system and all components. To achieve this maximum efficiency, the system was designed for the specific ventilation requirements. Air is delivered seamlessly to where it is needed through the normal working zones, so ductwork and raised floors are not required.
In contrast to conventional data center cooling systems, which return and cool down the warm air from the IT equipment, a BladeRoom data center works like a server. Heavily filtered fresh air is introduced, and intelligently adjusted to the needs of the IT equipment. At the same time, the warm air – depending on the requirements – is extracted from the data centre.
As well as Rotronic humidity and temperature probes and measurement transmitters, BladeRoom also uses the Rotronic PF4 differential pressure transmitter. The PF4 Series is an innovative development by Rotronic. The thermal measurement technique enables high precision measurements in the smallest of spaces. This differential pressure transducer gives customers a device to measure a further important parameter in addition to devices for humidity, temperature and CO2 measurement. With the optional connector for a HygroClip2 probe, analogue input or temperature sensor, the device is widely supported for the most diverse applications. The differential-pressure series lives up to these characteristics, with long term stability of <0.3%/year and an accuracy of ±1.0% of the end value.
The drop in temperature resulting from the evaporation of a liquid, which removes latent heat from the surface at which evaporation takes place. This process is utilised in cooling systems, both in industry and in the home. From the point of view of physics, it is also the basis of perspiration
This designates an economical method of utilising low outside temperatures to cool water, which is then used in commercial processes or in air conditioning systems. The cold water can be used immediately, or kept in short-term or long-term storage
