Data Center Economizer Cooling with Tower Water


A prototype computer equipment rack-level cooling device with two heat exchangers was demonstrated to illustrate an energy efficient cooling capability. This unique device was designed and constructed by APC by Schneider Electric to operate with higher-temperature cooling water, so that it can support many more hours of free cooling compared to traditional systems that utilize chilled water.
