Belden’s New Adaptive Enclosure Heat Containment System “Greens” The Data Center By Slashing Cooling Costs

Belden (NYSE: BDC), a world leader in the development of signal transmission products for industrial, enterprise, building management, broadcast, and security applications, has introduced a new adaptive enclosure heat containment (AEHC) system for data centers that will ensure the entire room is normalized with cold air to just the right amount, with no wasteful oversupply of cooling.

Carl Bruckner, General Manager of Belden’s Cable Management Group, states: “The AEHC system is a key addition to Belden’s enclosure products, allowing our partners to effectively manage the deployment of high density, high heat load equipment in both new and existing data centers.”

In the new Belden system, a pressure reading made by a sensor inside the enclosure plenum modulates the rotational speed of the fans in the two cartridges mounted atop the enclosure. The speed is varied so that they pull out exactly the correct amount of air from the enclosure and send it back to the air conditioner return via a ceiling plenum.

The process of cooling enclosures in a data center today wastes excessive amounts of energy, largely due to oversupply of cold air by computer room air conditioner (CRAC) units attempting to compensate inefficiency in the enclosure cooling process.

A recent study on 19 large computer rooms found that, on average, the amount of cold air supplied to a data center room is 2.6 times the amount of cold air actually consumed by the IT load. The CRAC is oversupplying the room with cold air to overcome both bypass leakage and the effects of hot/cold mixing. The result is a significant waste of energy and dollars.

However, because of its innovative heat containment design, the new Belden AEHC system overcomes these problems. Since it completely separates the hot and cold side of operations, the room will be normalized with cool air which never experiences mixing with exhaust heat from the enclosure. The bypass problem is eliminated, too.

There is no need to oversupply cold air to the room.

The physical position of the CRAC unit and its proximity to the enclosures are no longer a concern, a fact which greatly simplifies the challenge of data room infrastructure design. Cool air can be fed to the computer room via a raised floor or an overhead duct which enhances your freedom of infrastructure design.

When designing a totally new data center with the AEHC system, you can now install bigger and fewer CRAC units, instead of relying on many smaller units that are less efficient. And when retrofitting an existing room, you can use the same amount — and same type — of cooling equipment currently installed. In either scenario, Belden’s advanced management software will help you better control your IT environment by giving you real time assessment of enclosure cooling load or demand.

You will be able to deploy more IT load in the same room, a great efficiency benefit in today’s economy. If you have space left in your enclosures but aren’t deploying more devices there because your cooling system is already at full capacity, you can retrofit Belden’s new heat containment system on those enclosures that have the highest heat loads, to be able to host even more IT equipment.

As a bonus, the AEHC system increases the temperature differential between the inlet and outlet temperatures of the CRAC unit for much greater operational efficiency, giving you an important savings in energy consumption. With no mixing of hot and cold air, it is possible to raise the temperature of the cooling air supplied to enclosures to be closer to the ASHRAE recommended upper limit. The cold/hot air paths are fully separated by the system, so the CRAC supplies less air to the room at a higher temperature, and still assures better cooling with no hot spots.

For more information about the AEHC system, download NP 300 at http://www.belden.com, or contact Belden, P.O. Box 1980, Richmond, Indiana 47375, 1.800.BELDEN.1. FAX: 765.983.5294.

Users Turn To Motivational Eco-Friendly Computer Accessory In Tough Economic Times

In these distressed economic times, Americans are turning to positive reinforcements to uplift and encourage them. Inlectronics Inc. has created an eco-friendly computer accessory to motivate and inspire its user by metaphysically attracting positive energy online, without wasting energy through batteries or electricity.

There are constant news stories about dwindling stocks, unemployment rise, foreclosed homes and investment scams. In tough economic times like these, most relate to products that are encouraging and able to impel them in some way. In their search for stimulating accessories, computer users buy peripheral that fits in with their personality. Environmentalists appreciate items that are eco-friendly and biodegradable. Inlectronics Inc. has taken a familiar symbol and combined these attributes to create an environmentally safe computer accessory they believe will motivate and inspire.

Known as the Yin Yang Webmaster™, this computer accessory is shaped like the highly recognized Tai Chi symbol, a perfect circle with two contrasting light and dark colors, symbolizing the creation of life together sustaining inside itself the essence of the opposite energy. According to Chinese philosophy, having a harmonious balance of both Yin and Yang Feng Shui energies will create the quality of energy needed to live a healthy and fulfilling life. Inlectronics Inc. has expanded on this concept and believes that Feng Shuiing ones online activities can lead to love, happiness, health, prosperity, knowledge, and success, all from their computer. Unlike other accessories, this peripheral glows in the dark without the use of batteries or electricity, and is safe for the planet.

“Equivalent to a rabbit’s foot or four leaf clover, it’s the 2009 version of a good luck charm,” according to Z. Wilson, Inlectronics Inc. President and CEO. “Years ago people enjoyed covering their dressers and desks with beanie babies and model cars. Within this era, it’s all about what looks good and works best with your computer.”

Made of ABS material, this 7¼” decorative peripheral, once attached to the desktop, laptop, notebook or PC, is intended to inspire its user to complete important tasks, as well as motivate individuals to fully accomplish their goals. Inlectronics Inc.’s motto of ‘Feng Shui your PC and fulfill your destiny’ is intended to stress this mission.

Although the Yin Yang Webmaster™ is sold to everyone, according to current sales, the majority of purchasers are men. Research shows that men recognize and respect the popular Yin Yang symbol. The company also believes the glow in the dark feature is an appealing aspect, as it beams brightly without batteries or electricity. Teens claim they like the Webmaster™ due to the recognizable symbol and unique features compared to other computer accessories. Women who have purchased the product have said they appreciate its eco-friendly and biodegradable qualities. Parents and educators have positively commented on the affordability and motivational aspect of the product.

Due to the faltering economy, Inlectronics Inc. has lowered the price of the Yin Yang Webmaster™ to $19.95, which includes free shipping and handling, applied only to the first 5,000 Webmasters™ sold.

Inlectronics Inc., creator of the Webmasters™ product line, is a pioneer in providing unique inspirational pieces that empower its users to balance the energies of their online activities. The company’s mission is to give Internet users a strong sense of identity and purpose, and to represent to the world at large an iconic image that identifies who they are and what they stand for. They service both the computer and electronic industry, as well as serve both the consumer and professional market. Although they maintain locations in Bronx, NY and New York, NY, their products are sold exclusively through their website.

Guide On Buying A Better UPS

Traditionally, Specifying requirements, and Purchasing the specified product are two main consecutive stages while procuring most industrial systems. Based on study results adding a Cost Oriented Reevaluation (COR) stage, can boost significantly ROI; always of prime importance, particularly with present economy.

Generally, specification aims for simplest solutions which meet users “must have” requirements. Main UPS parameters are Output power (SIZE), Type (topology) and Battery Backup time. Size is dictated by consumers which will be protected. Back up time and the types of the systems depend on the particular application.

Three dominant UPS types are offered by manufacturers. The Off-Line type solves outages and short-term grid disturbances; Line-Interactive type solves also Undervoltage and Overvoltage disturbances, whereas the On-Line type provides the best solution to all grid related disturbances.

The simplest, Off Line UPS, is recommended for protecting home computer applications. Line Interactive systems are used for small networks, implemented in stores, restaurants, small offices. On-Line systems protect high power, installations, data centers, on line service providers, industry, and other critical applications.

In the process of checking the pros and cons of On-Line versus Line interactive UPS for a particular project, UPSonNet found that some On-Line systems were cheaper, compared to equivalent Line Interactive types. Deeper investigation, suggested that the assumption of constant Price to Power ratio should also be questioned.

This led to performing a study of UPS market prices, from small 350VA size systems up to 120kVA installations. The research was based on market prices, of main brands like APC, Powerware, Tripplite as well as smaller good standing companies, and filtering the results by a weighting factor representing supplier’s market share.

The mentioned dual stage procurement method, of preparing technical specification to meet needed requirements, followed by a purchasing stage based on the technical specification is justified, assuming positive price to performance behavior and linear behavior of price to output power ratio.

The study violates these assumptions. A better UPS may cost less, while significantly higher power may have a slight effect on price. Market prices are affected by numerous factors, such as, technological innovations, strength and preferences of individual producers, popularity of certain power levels or certain brands, and more. Therefore, no price logic is obeyed when individual systems, are concerned.

UPS Industry Price List, presented on UPSonNet’s website displays the final study results. The information enables to rise beyond the individual system and see both the forest and the trees. It allows achieving optimal solution by analyzing each specific case, in order to deduce the impact of size and topology on system cost.

Research results call for additional Cost Oriented Reevaluation Stage, before the specification is confirmed and forwarded to purchasing department. The COR stage should investigate alternate solutions, and modify UPS specification for getting superior technical performance and better economical outcome.

Guiding steps on UPSonNet’s site, direct users how to use UPS Price List to gain significant advantages. COR implementation enables to achieve such benefits as system upgrading, extending output power, increasing back up time, introducing redundancy, and more, while decreasing system cost sometimes by almost 40%.

In conclusion, UPS market price study contradicts assumed correlation between cost and performance. Thus, practice of specifying the simplest UPS to meet requirements doesn’t provide lowest cost. Implementing COR enables maximizing ROI.
