West Kingston, R.I. /Marketwired/ – Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, today announced the installation of eighteen Uniflair perimeter cooling units into DataBank’s North Dallas data center, a premier multi-tenant colocation facility located in Richardson, TX. DataBank, a leading provider of custom colocation solutions and services, chose Schneider Electric’s Uniflair solution for its ability to offer more flexibility, increased air flow, serviceability and noise reduction to cool their new Tier III+, sixty-thousand square foot facility. DataBank’s selection of the Uniflair perimeter cooling solution marks the largest installation Schneider Electric’s Uniflair line in North America to date.
When DataBank was looking for alternative cooling infrastructure solutions for their new North Dallas data center facility, Schneider Electric offered the opportunity for a hands-on demonstration of the Uniflair perimeter cooling line. “We took the entire mechanical team, from engineers to service technicians, to Schneider’s Technology Center in Saint Louis,” said Dan Allen, Vice President of Technical Operations for DataBank. “It gave us the opportunity to take apart their cooling units and critique them. It was as if Schneider had taken all the best aspects of the machines in the industry and put them into one box.”
Ultimately DataBank chose to install four of the Uniflair 4000 series units and 14 of the 4300 series Uniflair units. This line of perimeter cooling offers a number of key benefits, including energy efficiency, cost effectiveness, flexible footprint configurations, and easy maintenance and serviceability.
