Climate Control Solutions for What’s Next: Moving from the Hyperscale to The Edge

Description:

Whats Next? Moving from “The Cloud” to “The Edge.” And moving out of the traditional data center space to the very small, and very localized, Edge deployment. So how do you handle climate control in an Edge environment? Join Herb Villa of Rittal to learn about strategies for adapting climate control solutions from the hyperscale arena for use in The Edge space. The move to The Edge is driven by the exponential growth of IoT and the subset of IIoT – The Industrial Internet of Things.  The Edge deployment supports real time data collection and analysis, allowing the end user to react almost immediately to shifting market demands.  Whether supporting traditional internet content, controlling manufacturing processes or enabling applications for transit, municipal services, healthcare, etc., The Edge is the infrastructure supporting this explosive expansion of all things ‘Smart.’

Edge Infrastructure provides the physical deployment to support Edge applications.  Utilizing the same core components of the traditional data center, the unique demands of an Edge installation warrant a renewed review of these systems.  The core components are there – enclosures, power distribution, security/monitoring and of course climate control and heat removal. 

This seminar will:

  • Discuss Edge trends and applications
  • Define the basic requirements of an Edge installation
  • Introduce Edge Installation and Cooling criteria to successfully plan for these new installation environments and conditions.
  • Help you ensure compliance with ASHRAE Thermal Guidelines and resources
  • Review cooling choices and solutions

Presenter:

Designing Water Softeners for Today's Commercial Buildings

Description

For many commercial projects, water softeners are chosen based on two factors: the building's peak flow rate and the size of the unit. Often, little consideration is given to the potential water and salt efficiencies that a commercial softener can offer if properly designed.

Learn how commercial multi-tank systems are using Responsive Flow Design to produce consistently high quality softened water with no hard water slippage while saving significant water, salt and money. Multi-Tank Systems bring a series of smaller tanks on- and off-line as needed to properly service the building's flow rates at any given time. MTS systems have lower capital costs and will save your clients up to 50% of their annual operating costs by using less salt and less water. Plus, they can be easily expanded at any time.

If you're still specifying water softening equipment based on peak flow rates, it's time to learn about a new approach that enhances the performance of your building project by saving significant water, salt and money.
