MicroTCA climate control system

19 September 2007 Enclosures, Racks, Cabinets & Panel Products

Because of the compact designs of MicroTCA systems, power losses of 600 watts and more can be expected per shelf.

In order to be able to dissipate heat losses efficiently and to keep the electronic systems at constantly low temperatures, it is necessary to monitor the internal rack temperature and accurately manage the climate control technology constantly.

With its compact cooling package (CCP), Rittal provides increased security in the climate management of MicroTCA systems - with a claimed system availability of at least 99,999%. The system enables slide-in electronic components to be cooled down by a powerful air/water heat exchanger (including a fan unit) with a cooling output of up to 1200 watts. This system ensures that the installed boards are cooled uniformly, effectively and economically, while allowing up to 90% of the heat loads that arise from MicroTCA shelves and microcomputer packaging systems to be efficiently dissipated.

Secure cooling is ensured by robust controllers and sensors that permit the system to be controlled automatically. The modular and easy to install cooling system can be attuned to actual cooling needs flexibly and specifically. Areas of application with ambient temperatures of up to 55°C and at 1800 m above sea level are possible.

The CCP is available as a complete unit, including a 300 mm deep enclosure, controller managed 482,6 mm air/water heat exchanger, a 482,6 mm rack-mounted fan, and optionally as a fully wired re-cooling system. The cooling system supports all leading IPMI and CMC-TC (computer multicontrol top concept) protocols and it can be controlled via a processing unit (PU). The system will remain operational (for 96 hours at 55°C) even if a fan breaks down or in the event of a temperature failure.
