Emerson Uses iPad App to Monitor Data Center Cooling
Emerson Uses iPad App To Monitor Data Center CoolingEmerson Network Power recently introduced a new large-scale cooling system for data centers.
The Liebert PCW chilled water cooling system can be used in environments that consume from 200 kW to 6 MW, the manufacturer said. The hardware is offered in combination with an iOS app for Apple's iPad that can keep history of a data center’s Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE), which the company says will allow for better decisions on how to improve the effectiveness of the cooling systems to achieve power savings.
Emerson said that the Liebert PCW features inner aerodynamic enhancements that would allow businesses to reduce their data center operational costs up to 70 percent. The unit integrates a next-generation EC Fan, the Liebert iCOM control system, high efficiency filters and an ultrasonic humidifier.
Emerson hopes to attract the interest of cloud data center operators. The cooling system is now available in the EMEA region. Pricing was not announced.
