Portable Cooling Strategies for IT Wiring Closets and Server Rooms, Part 1


First we must specify the appropriate temperature at which we must maintain for the proper operation of your equipment.  IT equipment manufacturers usually provide a maximum temperature in which their devices are designed to operate and to guarantee performance and reliability.  This temperature is usually 104 degrees (40C). 

This is the maximum.  Operating at that temperature generally will not provide the same level of performance and longevity as operating at lower temperatures.  Because of this, IT equipment manufacturers publish a recommended operating temperature for their equipment.  Recommended operating temperatures are between 70F (21C) and 75F (24C) with the goal of no higher than 77F (25C).

The ExtraCooler portable air conditioner is available in various sizes and electrical voltages to meet every wiring closet and server room needs.  Spot Coolers are perfect for maintaining the recommended operating temperatures in your IT Closet or Server Room.  They are mobile, easy to operate and built to last.  For everyday, weekend, emergency or contingency planning, give us a call and your cooling needs will be taken care of by the experts at Spot Cooling Systems.
