Global data center precision air conditioning / PAC market shows growth

The global market for precision air conditioning equipment in data centers will grow at nearly 14 percent per year, according to analyst firm TechNavio. The report predicts a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of nearly 14 percent between 2014 and 2019, up from last year’s TechNavio figure of 12 percent. The firm says enterprise use of cloud-based services and data analytics has fuelled global demand for data centers, with many new facilities due to open, and older data centers being renovated to include advanced precision air conditioners. click here

Environmental Monitoring System (EMS)

EMS monitors environmental factors like light, sound sensor , temperature sensor, humidity sensor, power sensor, water leakage sensor, airflow sensor , smoke sensor and much more. It keeps detailed records of those factors with a live video streaming using a high quality camera. EMS display useful information on software interface, which gives operator/user one stop dashboard with alarming facility in the abnormal condition. EMS prevents calamitous situations resulting from climate and power related issues within monitored environment, this can reduce revenue loss, save guard reputations and prevent life threatening accidents. EMS best suits for the Building Management System, Monitoring data cente click here

4 Different Types of Dehumidifier and How They Work

Types of Dehumidifiers Available A dehumidifier reduces and regulates the humidity in the air. They can be used for single rooms and apartments or large commercial areas, such as swimming pools and storage warehouses. The type of dehumidifier you choose will depend on your budget, home, and preferences.Although we highly recommend a whole-home humidification system to maintain ideal indoor humidity levels, there are a number of choices available to you.Dehumidifiers can usually be grouped into one of four types: Heat Pump Dehumidifier – These dehumidifiers need a fan, heat pump, and heat exchange coils to remove moisture from the air. Using a fan, air gets sent past the heat exchange coils, which are extremely cold. Moisture then condenses and collects. Prices range from around $150 to over $1,500.Dehumidifying Ventilator – Similar to how it sounds, this humidifier works by using an exhaust fan to expel air outside. It uses a sensor and exhaust fan and is most often used in basements, attics, and crawlspaces. Chemical Absorbent Dehumidifier – Also known as desiccant dehumidifiers, they consist of hydrophilic materials, such as silica gel. Many residential units contain single-use desiccant-type cartridges, gel, and powder.Homemade Dehumidifier – If you’re the MacGyver type, there are many ways to build your own dehumidifier. While we don’t recommend it as a permanent solution, it might help in the short term. Homemade dehumidifiers can be made out of charcoal, road salt, or a special kind of de-icing salt.

Raised Floor vs. Overhead Cooling

Chuck Goolsbee has prompted an active conversation over at the ServerSpecs blog at TechTarget with his post about the merits and drawbacks of a raised floor data center environment. Chuck prefers placing the equipment directly on the floor, and outline some rationales for this approach. One of them is the additional floor loading capacity for heavy equipment: click here
