There are many good reasons to visit Daxten at DCW 2017

A good reason for any data centre professional to visit Daxten at DCW 2017 is to experience, how easy and fast critical racks can be powered by the latest generation of the Starline track busbar. The design of the Starline busbar system, allows for the tool free insertion of the plug-in unit into the busbar, simply rotating the tap off by 90 degrees locks it into position – within seconds a new branch circuit to a rack is completed. Recently the T5 product family, which includes the 250A, 400A and 800A busbars, has been expanded to include a powerful 1200 amp version. The new and the existing busbars will be presented on the Daxten stand G50.

Wire-free radio technology to monitor critical data centre infrastructure

For data centre or facility managers it is a high priority to ensure the most efficient use of existing power and cooling capacities. To reach this goal it is essential to monitor the power and environmental parameters on a regular basis. By doing this, data centre experts are able to identify, analyse and solve power, thermal or security weaknesses and to improve the power usage effectiveness (PUE) in their data centres. The comprehensive Packet Power wire-free radio monitoring solutions, offered by Daxten and presented at DCW, enable the data centre personnel to centrally control and manage several hundred environmental sensors (e.g. for temperature, humidity and differential pressure) and current parameters like Volts, Amperes, kW, kWh, kVA, phase angle und total current for any branch circuit, cabinet, PDU or single IT device. The complete solution is based on wire-free radio technology and therefore, requires no cabling or configuration work.

Protection against water leaks in the data centre

Recently the Packet Power wire-free radio monitoring solution has been expanded to include a sensing module for the detection of water leaks. As of now, the system can reliably monitor areas in the data centre that are susceptible to leaks.This innovation will  be demonstrated at DCW.

For an holistic approach to monitor, detect and identify leaks in the data centre, Daxten will show the RLE SeaHawk monitoring solution at DCW. It offers spot detectors, sensing cables or a combination of both sensor types to reliably monitor confined or large open areas in the data centre. As soon as the sensors come into contact with water, acids, or other hazardous liquids, system controllers locate the leak, trigger acoustic or optical alarms and generate warnings that are sent to the data centre personnel. The leak detection solution can communicate via Ethernet, N2, Modbus or BACnet that makes it possible to integrate it into overarching DCIM or BMS applications.

Fast and simple installation of busbars, containment systems and cable trays

The use of an innovative load-bearing ceiling solution will give data centre and facility experts the maximum flexibility to reconfigure their data centre infrastructure in accordance with ongoing requirements – by saving time, material and labour costs. Daxten will show at DCW an engineered load-bearing ceiling system that is both, a suspended ceiling and a support grid, in one cost effective package. The design allows for the hanging of various services such as busbar, lighting, cable trays and security cages in the data centre. Furthermore, the solution allows for the suspension of hot aisle containment plus chimney systems whilst at the same time creating an upper air plenum for hot air return to the cooling handlers.

On-demand capacity extension with micro-modular data centres

Data centre operators that intend to plan and to extend their infrastructure “on demand” with an even smaller form factor than it was previously available with containerised data centres are invited to take a closer look at the RASER DX, a complete micro-modular data centre that will be presented on Daxten stand G50. The RASER from Instant Data Centers can be operated as a comprehensive stand-alone data centre or as a pod with numerous units, which is modular and expandable. This is an ideal product for the rapidly expanding Edge Computing architecture. According to requirements the RASER allows for setting up or to retrofit DC architectures in compliance with TIER I to IV.
