Data Centre Cooling Innovation of the Year
Entry Description
SMS Engineering is a Premier Partner of APC by Schneider Electric, the project has been shared with Schneider Electric System Engineers and proposed to Uptime Institute, the main certification body of the Data Center architectures worldwide
The DATA CENTER consists of a compartment chamber in which there is a row of racks with 2 conditioning units of 20 kW APC In-Row chilled water refrigerators, with microprocessor regulation system with the continuous reading of environmental conditions, the monitoring of operating conditions and self-diagnosis with signaling of any malfunctions, prepared both for remote control with remote transmission of anomaly states and for serial connection to centralized supervisory systems. The precision air conditioning technology is expressly conceived and designed to meet the specific air conditioning needs of the data center. To ensure the proper operation of the installed equipment, it is essential to maintain constant thermohygrometric conditions throughout the year: for this reason, we speak of controll of environmental conditions and not of simple cooling.
In this project all the heat radiated from the rear of the Data Center is conveyed to the In-Row units which in turn cool the active equipment on the front. All In-Row units are integrated with the management of the Data Center infrastructure (DCIM).
The innovation consists in the use of NON-PERIMETER temperature conditioning and therefore decreases heat loss because it is reused in in-row units. Customers make consumption more efficient. There is greater control over the air conditioning units which implies greater efficiency and optimization of energy consumption.
There is innovation in automation obtained through the installation of sensors that regulate themselves based on the temperature detected.
As a result of the project’s implementation, the organization has benefited from high availability of the infrastructure, energy saving, monitoring and control of the above (IoT).

SMS Engineering Highlights ENG

SMS Engineering is the First Innovative Small Enterprise in Italy!
In 2018 SMS Engineering turned 20 years of activity.
