Accessories for physical separation in Data Center
Elements that provide physical separation of air flows are:
• Overhead cabinet (Fig. 1). Overhead cabinet is installed over the rack and allows to separate flows of cold and hot air preventing air mixing between hot and cold corridors thereby increasing the efficiency of air exchange. Cabinet construction allows to set the height of isolation according to demand. Overhead cabinet on its chassis can accommodate equipment rack power distribution (electric cabinet, counter, connectors, etc.). To access the electrical equipment, cabinet is fitted door that provides easy access to the placed in the cabinet equipment.
- Flexible curtain. Flexible curtain provides isolation of entry zone between rack rows and prevents air mixing between hot and cold corridors, thus increasing the efficiency of air exchange and minimizing the costs.
- Unit plug. Unit plug provides isolation of rack by covering empty holes (units) in the rack that prevents overflow of cold air to hot corridor through the rack.
