The high efficiency ECHO IT Cooling System ensures the right air temperature, in the correct quantity and at the correct pressure is presented to the server inlet, enabling it to breathe efficiently. By varying the air volume, the ECHO system operates not only with air volumes 50% less than traditional cooling systems but much more efficiently and with elevated water temperatures that allow up to 95% free-cooling (London, UK).
Complete, flexible, free cooling solution
At the hub of the ECHO system is an ACE (Active Cabinet Exhaust) unit which sits on top of the server cabinet, drawing precisely the right amount of hot discharge air from the servers and rejecting it away into the ceiling void, without any impingement into the IT environment. The air is ducted directly to an Airedale ECHO CRAC unit which in turn is linked to one or more Airedale ECHO free cooling chillers via interactive controls logic. This smart, controls logic, matched with all the latest technology direct drive EC fans and chilled water coil technology, is key to the ECHO’s ability to communicate from rack to chiller and gives the ECHO system its intelligence, high efficiency and resilience.
