The new SmartCool™ i-drive precision air conditioning system (5-83kW) proved a big draw to the Airedale International stand at this year’s DCD Converged (18 & 19 November 2015).

Of particular interest to visitors was the SmartCool’s split evaporator coil which helps manage air distribution and prevent hot spots by providing a high level of control over dehumidification and cooling capacity when operating under constant pressure control and removing the need for reheat. 

Airedale’s focus on the design of high performance, high resilience cooling systems has again resulted in a system which delivers class-leading energy efficiencies. The SmartCool™ i-drive typically outperforms the nearest rival system by delivering up to 21% more cooling kW/m2.

The single-circuit SmartCool™ i-drive PAC delivers very precise supply air temperature up to 26°C under variable heat loads and wide outside ambient conditions of between -20°C and +50°C. Designed for use in high density applications using elevated return air temperatures, hot and cold aisle containment as well as perimeter cooling environments, the SmartCool™ i-drive range is available with the option of high capacity compressors for extreme temperature applications. With a choice of single, inverter-driven compressor or tandem compressor set with optional fixed-speed compressor, the SmartCool™ i-drive delivers excellent part-load efficiencies, very precise control and lower capacity turndown, providing a highly versatile, resilient cooling solution that can adapt to load requirements. Another major benefit, the range is designed for pipe lengths of up to 100 metres delivering a great deal of flexibility for data centre architects in siting outdoor condensers, without compromising efficiency and performance.

The new range is an air-cooled, mechanical direct expansion (DX) inverter-driven variant of the award-winning SmartCool™ Chilled Water PAC which picked up two industry awards in 2014 when it was first launched.
