The Airboost Fan Assisted Floor Tiles
The AirBoost fan assisted system offers direct cooling to those hard to cool areas where clusters of high-density servers have created hotspots or where air-flow is low due to underfloor restrictions. The AirBoost is available in a manual controlled unit that allows an infinite adjustment of air-flow depending on the amount needed to cool an area or a temperature controlled unit that supports up to three remote temperature sensors to control fan speed as the temperature increases or decreases.
No downtime or movement of racks is required for the installation of an AirBoost unit and one AirBoost can provide cooling for two or three adjacent racks. If larger areas require cooling, multiple AirBoost units can be used at the same time. AirBoost can be considered a “greening” solution as well. Many times data centers are kept cooler than necessary just to cool a few high density areas.
This over-cooling is used to keep the hostspots under control but with an AirBoost solution in place, the overall room temperature can be increased as the AirBoost will control the individual problematic hotspots without requiring an over-cooled data center.
