Climate control for MicroTCA systems

Climate control for MicroTCA systems Rittal has developed a highly efficient cooling method primarily for use with MicroTCA systems, capable of heat removal up to 1200W. The 19in rack mounting Compact Cooling Package (CPP) comprises a controller managed air/water heat exchanger, 300mm deep, and a 19in fan tray, which can be supplied as a fully wired and piped re-cooling system. Supporting all leading IPMI and Rittal CMC-TC (computer-multi-control top-concept) protocols, it can be controlled via a CPU. If a fan breaks down or in the event of extreme air temperatures (96 hours at 55degC), the system still remains operational. The use of robust controllers and sensors ensures secure cooling and allows the system to be reliably controlled automatically. Modular and easy to install, the system can be matched to specific, actual cooling needs due to its flexibility. Applications with ambient temperatures of up to 55degC and at 1,800m above sea level are therefore possible. Due to the compact designs of MicroTCA systems, power losses of 600W and more can be expected per shelf. Use of Rittal's CCP enables efficient dispersal of heat, keeping the electronic systems at constant low temperatures by monitoring the internal temperature. Up to two MicroTCA shelves can be maintained with a single system, which can easily be applied to any vertically cooled rackmount electronics.
