Continuous increase of the cold aisle temperature for reasons of efficiency to 25 °C +/- 2 K in order to make use of the passive cooling operation up to an outside temperature of 22 °C . Relative humidity of 50 % +/- 20 % (absolute between 5.5 and 11.5 g/kg) . Two separate cold water pipe networks connecting the CRAC units in the physically separated CRAC cages per floor to the chilled water aggregates in the basement and the adiabatic hybrid coolers on the building roof (passive cooling) . Pressure- and temperature-controlled operation of the CRAC units (N+1 per fire zone) . Per floor 16 CRAC units with a cooling capacity of 145 kW each . Basin design under cold water supply pipelines in the rackspace with leakage monitoring system (pipe routing outside area of rack installation) . For each floor with rackspace 2 x 1,600 kW chilled water aggregates in the basement . For each floor with rackspace 4 x 720 kW re-cooling capacity on the building roof Fire detection, alarm and extinguishing equipment . High-sensitivity smoke detection system . Surveillance and alarm system . Automatic inert gas extinguishing system . Portable fire extinguishers
Racks . High quality grounded racks with 19" frames . Width: 80 cm; depth: 120 cm; height: 220 cm (46 U) . Airflow horizontally from front to back (cold/hot aisle concept) .
