A Liebert Thermal Management Unit, also known as a Liebert computer room air conditioning (CRAC) unit, is a highly efficient and scalable cooling system specifically designed for the mission-critical cooling needs of data centers, computer rooms, server closets, telecom, testing labs, and similar applications.
Temperature control and humidity control is crucial in your IT environment. You can’t afford to have any of your equipment overheating, because every minute of downtime means money lost. Some reports say it can cost an average of almost $9,000 a minute. A Ponemon Institute research survey found that an unplanned data center outage due to IT equipment failure is the most costly outage of all.
A Liebert unit can help prevent an outage due to overheating or high humidity, better than pretty much any other precision cooling system out there. It can also reduce the possibility of human error when it comes to your cooling system. But how does a Liebert unit work?
First of all, there are a number of Liebert cooling systems — each designed for a specific environment. But all of these highly energy-efficient cooling systems are innovative cooling solutions that are intelligent, self-optimizing, and can be deployed rapidly. By using Liebert Thermal Management products, you protect your data centers and IT spaces, while reducing utility and other operating costs.
Let’s take a look.
Types of Liebert Cooling Units
The Liebert Thermal Management product line includes::
- Chilled Water (CW) Cooling
- Refrigerant Based Direct Expansion (DX) Cooling Units
- Free-cooling Chillers
- Data Center Chillers
- In-Row Systems
- Rack Systems
- Evaporative Cooling Units
- Thermal Control and Monitoring
- And more
Which system you choose will be based on your location, specific size of your IT center, and business goals. But whichever system you choose, you are guaranteed to have top of the line cooling equipment that protects your critical IT infrastructure and reduces your energy costs.
For example, the Liebert DSE™ Freecooling Economization 50-250kW is up to 75% more energy-efficient than legacy systems.
Liebert Cooling System Features
Liebert cooling units are manufactured by Vertiv Brands (formerly known as Emerson Network Power). Decades of experience and innovation have made Liebert the commercial HVAC industry leader in cooling systems designed for data centers and other high heat environments.
Some of the top features include:
- Precision cooling for tightly packed equipment
- Humidity control for sensitive IT and communications equipment
- Redundancy compressors, blowers, and motors
- Liebert iCOM Cooling Unit Controls
- Air economizers
- The ability to install in multiple configurations (floor mount, ceiling mount, rack mount)
You choose and customize your system. Your Liebert air conditioner unit(s) can run on air, water, or refrigerant, depending on your needs and budget. You control how much cool air flows through your equipment for peak operation. Motors and fans meet or exceed meet all the latest ASHRAE standards.
Liebert Units Are Built for Reliability
Engineering excellence goes into every Liebert unit. For example:
- The highest quality components are used for their proven reliability and performance.
- They have extended service life due to microprocessor technology that adds automatic sequencing of components.
- Units have an alarm system and self-diagnostics which provide rapid troubleshooting, helping to prevent problems before they can affect the electronic equipment room environment.
- Air delivery systems are designed for optimized air distribution and long service life.
Pair Your Liebert Cooling System with a Liebert UPS
There’s always the chance your data center or IT environment could lose power. Even a backup generator is not fast enough to prevent some losses. With Liebert uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) you get an integrated system that will provide emergency backup power for your IT infrastructure now and in the future.
