Belden Inc. Introduces a New Flexible, High-Performance Aisle Containment System

Belden Inc. introduced a new flexible, high-performance aisle containment system that eliminates mixing of hot and cold air in data center environments to maximize energy efficiency and lower operating costs. A major challenge faced by data center managers is ensuring that cooling systems do not fail and continue to provide uninterrupted cool air to equipment. However, it is estimated that cooling accounts for up to 30% of a data centerâ s total energy load. By completely eliminating the mixing of hot exhaust and cold supply air, the aisle containment system allows for an increased differential between the inlet and outlet temperatures of computer room air conditioner (CRAC) units. This significantly improves overall operating efficiency of the cooling system, eliminating the need to oversupply cold air and the potential for hot spots that can cause equipment overheating and failures. As a result, high-density data centers can sufficiently support the higher heat loads of advanced data processing equipment while lowering energy consumption and total operating costs. One of the fundamentals of operating an energy efficient data center is to eliminate the mixing of hot and cold air to help keep hot return air hotter and cold supply air cooler. This allows CRAC systems to operate at maximum efficiency and keeps the intake temperature for networking equipment cooler, which is especially critical for advanced networking environments to effectively host more equipment with heat loads that can reach up to 30kW per cabinet. For use in both hot- and cold-aisle containment applications, the aisle containment system features innovative transparent panels that are lightweight and easily attached horizontally or vertically to data center cabinets using a universal rail system. Panels that are horizontally attached form a roof over the aisle between rows of cabinets, while panels that are vertically attached extend the aisle to the ceiling where overhead hot air return or ducted cooling systems reside. Depending on whether rows of cabinets are placed back to back or front to front, the panels trap and contain hot exhaust air from critical network equipment at the back of the cabinets or cold supply air drawn in by the equipment at the front of the cabinets. The panels are field modifiable to meet varying height and space requirements between rows of cabinets and from the top of the cabinets to the ceiling. Unlike thermally-activated containment panels that cause the potential for hazards or equipment damage when they fall or shrink, the panels of the aisle containment system are intelligently controlled by smoke or fire alarm systems to simply angle away from the ceiling. This ensures early and immediate obstruction of critical fire suppression systems. The panels are also fully resettable following an alarm event or testing. Available with multiple aisle door choices, including sliding, swing and access control options, the aisle containment system can be used with any data center cabinet size or style. The lightweight nature of the panels also places no undue stress on cabinets or the ceiling grid. The system rounds out Belden's data center efficiency offering, which includes active and passive chimney systems, filler panels, fans and a variety of cable management solutions.
