 Thermal Management

 

 

 

Careful Thermal Management planning will ensure that rack systems located in non-conditioned rooms, such as basements or equipment closets, will be properly cooled. There are two approaches to securing an adequate internal enclosure temperature for the successful operation of the components enclosed: passive and active thermal management. Passive makes use of the ability of a properly configured system to ventilate through natural convection. In certain cases, however, the use of fans to force air through an enclosure (active) is necessary to maintain the desired internal temperature. Visit middleatlantic.com and use the thermal calculator to determine whether your system will require passive or active thermal management.

Occupying 3 rackspaces, these quiet fan panel assemblies provide quiet cooling for demanding environments. Each assembly comes complete with fan(s) and grille(s) installed. Available in a black brushed and anodized, or black textured powder coat finish; cord and plug included.

Component Cooler
Remove heat right at the source. Optimized for components on open shelving, this quiet cooler turns on automatically when satellite/cable boxes, receivers and other heater generating components get too hot. Place the component cooler directly on top of equipment vents. The COMP-COOL-3 is available for systems that require multiple components to be cooled.

The low-profile unit produces minimal noise and fits beneath most equipment. Rubber discs are included to raise the height of stacked equipment if necessary. 

 

Cabinet Cooler
Remove heat generated by components located in smaller cabinets and entertainment centers. Operating only when needed to minimize dust, this quiet cooling device features an aesthetically designed vent that can be painted to match its environment.

The quiet, internal fan activates automatically when temperatures generated by hot-running equipment reach damaging levels


 
Closet Cooler
remove heat from equipment racks located in closets. Larger installations located in closets have greater cooling requirements. The Closet Cooler has been designed to quietly handle the heat produced by a full rack of equipment. Two solid oak vents will be visible and can be stained or painted to match any room's décor.

This cooling solution runs only when needed, mounts to closet doors and is available with an active exhaust and passive intake for closets with gaps, or an active exhaust and active intake for tightly sealed closets.
