  • Cold Row™ systems are available in water-cooled, water-/glycol-cooled or air-cooled direct expansion (DX) configurations. They capture high-temperature (hot aisle) discharge air from adjacent rack-based IT equipment and reintroduce it as conditioned air-through the front of the unit (cold aisle).

    With Cold Row CW, chilled water is supplied to the Cold Row unit via a building chiller or other chilled water plant. Chilled water has a high affinity for heat, thus making it a very efficient cooling method. The Black Box controller allows for independent valve and fan control so the unit can adjust immediately, and precisely, to varying heat loads. This optimizes energy efficiency.

    Cold Row is equipped with highly reliable Electronically Commutated (EC) fans that offer considerable energy cost savings and long life. Using an electronically commutated permanent magnet DC motor eliminates AC inverter whine. Fan speed is continuously adjustable via a signal from the system controller without the use of VFDs. EC fans offer energy-efficient, quiet, low-vibration operation.

    An advanced E2 series microprocessor controller is mounted inside the Cold Row electric box. The controller provides the following features: input/output monitoring status, full integrated control of cooling and dehumidification, multi-unit control, and remote communication with a Building Management System (BMS). The controller may interface directly to a BMS, so you can monitor the performance of the air conditioner and adjust operating parameters. The E2 user interface display panel is factory mounted on the front access panel of the unit.
