Rittal Extend Modular Safe

Saturday, 11 February, 2012 | Supplied by: Rittal Pty Ltd



The Rittal Extend Modular Safe provides protection against physical threats to IT applications, with direct free cooling. It allows medium-sized users to accommodate their information technology securely and within a small space, as well as save energy.

The safe offers sensitive IT hardware system-tested protection against fire, smoke gases, fire extinguisher water, dust and unauthorised access. Alongside the servers and storage solutions, other components such as system controls, fire alarm and extinguisher system, busbars, etc, supplement this security safe and make up a fully equipped compact data centre.

As with all the Modular Safe cooling units, the horizontal air flow and the separation between the cold and the hot side in the safe is ensured - even when direct free cooling is employed inside. The cooled air is guided in front of the 482.6 mm level of the IT system.

Cooling by means of outside air alone is sufficient for a predefined temperature range. If the outside air temperatures are too low, some of the warm exhaust air is mixed with the incoming supply air, so that suitable process conditions are established for the IT. At higher external temperatures, the cooling system integrated in the device is used, cooling the outside air to the desired air inlet temperature. If the outside temperature is warmer than the exhaust air, cooling takes place exclusively in air-recirculation mode.

The cooling unit is installed between the side panel of the safe and the outer wall on site, which increases cooling efficiency. This area is shielded off to help maintain the product’s characteristics. Air exchange with the environment is usually via fire dampers, which close immediately if smoke is detected. This means the system is protected from fire.
