Eaton Corporation has announced a cooperative agreement with STULZ Air Technology Systems, Inc., at the AFCOM Data Center World Conference in Las Vegas. Through this agreement, Eaton will expand its data center product portfolio by offering STULZ cooling technologies to its customers. Eaton’s enclosure, containment, and power management systems, paired with in-row and perimeter cooling solutions from STULZ, can enhance energy efficiency and reduce operating expenses in even the most challenging data center environments.

“Eaton is committed to meeting the needs of our mission critical customers by offering state-of-the-art products and services that allow them to run safe, reliable and efficient data centers,” said Ed Komoski, president, Power Quality Operations, Eaton. “Aligning with STULZ enables Eaton to offer pre-engineered, integrated solutions that address data center operators’ most pressing power and cooling issues.”

STULZ is a leading systems supplier in the field of air-conditioning technology for data centers. The streamlined design of its in-row cooling systems allow them to be placed closer to the heat load, enabling data center owners to better manage thermal requirements regardless of the size of their data center.

This agreement is intended to further expand Eaton’s already robust portfolio of data center products that store, cool, power, manage and secure mission-critical data center technology, which includes uninterruptible power systems (UPSs), power distribution products, data center services, Power Xpert power management software, information technology (IT) rack systems and data center air containment solutions, as well as medium and low voltage switchgear.

“The combining of STULZ mission-critical energy products and Eaton’s customizable data center containment systems provides an efficient, economical and intelligent cooling system for any data center,” said Oliver Stulz, president, STULZ-ATS. “Identifying the right cooling architecture allows data center owners to effectively manage increasing thermal requirements.”

During the AFCOM expo, Eaton (booth #401) and STULZ (booth #407) will showcase  their data center portfolios and application experts will be available to discuss the latest strategies for deploying energy efficient thermal management and power management solutions in mission critical environments.
