CAREL will be at Data Centre World London, on 2-3 March, to finally celebrate an in-person event, initially held digitally last July as the Virtual Show 2021. Welcoming visitors to stand D538, CAREL will be presenting the star of the event: energy saving. The Group’s products for data centres offer an entire system based on highly efficient technologies that, supported by IoT services, maximise the benefits ensured by complete solutions.
MORE SUSTAINABLE DATA CENTRES WITH
INDIRECT EVAPORATIVE COOLING
CAREL’s solutions for indirect evaporative cooling in data centres have been designed and developed with the aim of making products and systems with specific characteristics work together to guarantee significant energy savings for the applications. Cooling systems can in fact be made more efficient and reliable by combining the products together and having them work in synergy to support each other and reciprocally improve performance. The company’s specific know-how and extensive experience are essential components in the creation of the key technologies that allow the equipment to cool the latest-generation servers, such as heat exchangers, adiabatic humidifiers, and specific controllers for each HVAC system.
BOSS ONE: A SECURE INTERFACE
FOR HVAC CONTROLLER CONNECTIVITY
However large or small the data centre, optimal performance monitoring can help ensure improved efficiency and lower energy consumption. Detailed information is critical for optimising infrastructure and ensuring faster local and remote troubleshooting. The complexity of DCIM systems, together with cyber-security problems, require an evolution of the traditional paradigms. As a result, CAREL will also be presenting the new boss one device, a web interface for programmable controllers, used to manage the parameters and status of HVAC units, as well as coordinate alarm signals and share variables not only with BMS systems, but also with cloud solutions. The need for confidential data transfer, essential for the intended application, has led to the creation of a tool that ensures a secure and encrypted interaction even with external systems, using the latest and most reliable communication protocols to connect to a wide range of external centralised systems. Finally, the flexibility of boss one is further enhanced by the possibility to customise the interface and easily navigate all the pages from mobile devices, for both programming and everyday use.
MONITORING WITH FOG COMPUTING
The popularity of DCIM systems is also a result of the advantages of monitoring data centre infrastructures to optimise energy consumption and maintain uptime. The spread of fog computing means there will be even greater demand, with the need to monitor multiple remote locations. Enrico Boscaro, CAREL Group Marketing Manager – HVAC Industrial, will examine this topic during his speech at the conference (2 March, 4.35 pm) entitled “EdgeDCIM – An architecture for Edge data centres infrastructure monitoring”. EdgeDCIM is an architecture that consists of edge devices that monitor the essential infrastructure of micro data centres and are connected to a cloud system for data aggregation. Reflecting the same architecture as edge computing, this combines the local processing and fast response of edge systems with the data presentation and analysis of a centralised system, guaranteeing reliability and efficiency.
