Best Practices for Datacom Facility Energy Efficiency 2nd Edition provides detailed information on the design of datacom facilities that will aid in minimizing the life-cycle cost to the client and to maximize energy efficiency in a facility to align with ASHRAE's stated direction to lead the advancement of sustainable building design and operations.
Sustainable design, global warming, depleting fuel reserves, energy use and operating cost are becoming increasingly more important. These issues are even more important in datacom equipment centers for reasons such as:
Best Practices for Datacom Facility Energy Efficiency 2nd Edition covers many aspects of datacom facility energy efficiency, including chapters on the topics of environmental criteria, mechanical equipment and systems, economizer cycles, airflow distribution, HVAC controls and energy management, electrical distribution equipment, datacom equipment efficiency, liquid cooling, total cost of ownership, and emerging technologies. There are also appendices on such topics as facility commissioning, operations and maintenance, and telecom facility experiences. The primary changes for this second edition center on the updated environmental envelope and relate to the recommended temperatures at the inlets of the equipment operating in datacom facilities.
Best Practices for Datacom Facility Energy Efficiency 2nd Edition is the sixth in the ASHRAE Datacom Series, authored by ASHRAE Technical Committee 9.9, Mission Critical Facilities, Technology Spaces and Electronic Equipment. This series provides comprehensive treatment of datacom cooling and related subjects.
