Active Cooling

Active cooling uses chilled, forced air (air conditioning) to bring down the temperature in an entire room or in specific hot spots.

  • Perimeter and/or raised-floor systems will cool down an entire room, but in high-density data centers or large rooms, this can be a costly and inefficient means of data center cooling
  • Close-coupled cooling is much more efficient because it focuses cooling where it’s needed most; this method employs self-contained air conditioners, portable air conditioners, row-based air conditioners and rack-mount air conditioners to target hot spots or specific pieces of hot-running equipment
