The latest versions of Rittal’s Liquid Cooling Package (LCP) units have added fans to move air more efficiently and with less effort. And using six fans has proven to consume less energy than using three or four. More fans, each running at slower speeds, draw less energy while moving an equal or greater volume of cool air. While the standard 30-kW LCP still comes equipped with three EC fans, this latest adaptation also makes the cooling solution more scalable, improves redundancy, and reduces overall noise levels. In addition, all the fans have been moved to the front of the units away from the maximum heat generated by computer components. This design feature not only improves heat dissipation, it also extends the life of the fans.mc1112-products-rittal-300.jpg

Rittal’s LCP units can be configured to cool 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 kW, making them far more responsive to the demands of today’s data centers. The next generation LCP units are truly scalable—going from 10 to 20 and 20 to 30 kW just by adding fans to the system; or from 40 to 50 or 60 kW by adding fans and a larger heat exchanger.
