  • 400 VDC for Data Centers

    24 Apr 2017 Schurter

    Converting, transforming, converting, transforming – vast amounts of unused electricity simply disappear in data centers. The idea of switching the power supply to direct current and bypassing a large proportion of these losses results in a paradigm shift.

  • The industry is surprised - the team of the specialists founded in 2015 and experts for conception and realisation of data centers celebrates once again its victory.

    After the surprise victory in 2016 at the ceremony for the coveted audience award taking place during the event of the German Data Center Award, ICT Facilities is winning once again the second time.

    "Almost 3.000 votes were cast. More than 50% were given to the submission, which was prepared in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Peter Radgen of the University Stuttgart", explained Ulrike Ostler, editor in chief of the leading branch portal "Datacenter Insider" during her laudatory speech of the audience award 2017.

    In both submitted technical categories 1 and 7, ICT Facilities could achieve the 3rd place with the solution "ICT Performer" (category 1) and "ICT AllInfraBox" (category 7) and came out top against their strong competitors.  
    In total, there have been 64 submissions (last year: 58) in 8 categories (last year: 9) which were evaluated by the expert jury formed by industry insiders. The three best submissions have been awarded.

    Together with the complete team of ICT Facilities, managing directors Stephan Lang and Holger Zultner were very delighted about the won prizes and good rankings in the categories at the audience award.

  • Reflex Winkelmann optimises design of vacuum spray tube degasification system 

     

    Smoother, clearer and more efficient: The constant inspection of the services provided with the Servitec vacuum spray-tube degassing system has resulted in optimisation of the structure of the established systems. The detailed configuration of the system has been improved – for example, individual system components will be easier to access in the future. Start-up and maintenance will also be easier. Within the range, the Servitec 35, Servitec 60, Servitec 75 and Servitec 95 can be equipped directly with an optimal conductibility sensor on the feed-in section. The sensor is directly compatible with the software, enabling capacity monitoring of ion exchangers (feed-in). The motto is easy-to-install. And the fact is: The spray-tube has been stabilised again due to the modified design, enabling a greater load. With this, Reflex Winkelmann is emphasising its claim of making Servitec systems available for a wide range of purposes in industrial, residential and commercial buildings.

The works form part of NGD’s recent multi-million-pound investment into the further development of its world class facility and the latest expansion phase of an additional 250,000 sq. ft of capacity. 

  • With the series 4751, SCHURTER is introducing a ganged IEC block style outlet. The new line provides an efficient solution for power distribution units and uninterruptible power supply units.

  • What do data centres require of their power delivery? The answer is easy: 100% power availability, 100% of the time. In other words, they want a system that never fails.

    However, reliability is often considered the key attribute for any UPS solution. Yet, a system can be reliable over a period of time, but still fail on a particular occasion with far-reaching consequences. Therefore, availability must be the number one priority when purchasing any UPS solution.

    Availability can be expressed by the following equation where MTBF equals Mean Time Before Failure and MTTR equals Mean Time To Repair:

    Availability = MTBF

    MTBF + MTTR

    Availability is expressed as a percentage. The key number here is MTTR (if MTTR = 0 then Availability is always 100% regardless of MTBF).

    In recent years, modular systems have introduced a significant step-change in the industry as, when properly configured, they are designed to maximise load availability and system efficiency simultaneously.

    This is achieved because modular systems have a single frame, containing a number (N) of power modules. These run together and share the load equally between them. The advantage of this N+1 configuration is that if one module fails it becomes isolated. The remaining modules support the load and the system availability is preserved. UPS modules are paralleled vertically within a single frame, and frames can be further paralleled horizontally to provide a completely flexible system. There is no single point of failure, contributing to the highest level of availability for power protection. The load also remains protected even when any individual module is being replaced.

    CENTIEL’s CumulusPower is the latest 4th generation of true modular UPS systems, incorporating Distributed Active Redundant Architecture (DARA), it provides a significant improvement over previous system designs. The critical power protection industry is, understandably, extremely riskaverse, and is particularly attentive regarding potential single points of failure. Therefore, each individual CumulusPower UPS module contains all the elements of a standalone UPS unit – rectifier, inverter, static switch, display – and critically – all control and monitoring circuitry. This eliminates the potential single point of failure associated with designs that have a separate, single static switch assembly, separate control or intelligence modules. Availability for the 4th generation Centiel system is now Nine 9s or 99.9999999%.

    In addition, with all the focus on the UPS units themselves it can be forgotten that an integral element of a system is the associated batteries which provide power in the event of an electrical supply interruption or blackout. Equal consideration needs to be given to the design of the battery system, including rigorous battery autonomy calculations, selecting a quality supplier, the provision of redundant strings, individual string protection/isolation, ambient environment to name but a few.

    With all the time, effort and expense of designing and installing the very best UPS system it is important that it is properly maintained to ensure availability is not compromised. Suppliers offer a variety of maintenance proposals and SLAs and diligence must be applied up front, in scrutinising and choosing the correct solution for each installations requirement. Any UPS that is not maintained properly may ultimately compromise overall system availability.

    As well as availability, organizations need to consider the total cost of ownership of a UPS system and this is related to the purchase price, system efficiency (running costs) and the cost of maintenance.

    I’ve touched on maintenance, so how a system is configured to maximize efficiency is another area demanding attention. The challenge is that IT requirements change quickly. So how can an infrastructure be built to meet these dramatically changing demands? Put simply, a UPS needs to operate on the best point of its efficiency curve. A system which is too small will be overloaded and a system which is too large will waste energy and be inefficient and costly to run. Scalability and flexibility are key when purchasing, to ensure the continual ‘right sizing’ of the UPS.

    Modular systems offer all the advantages of high availability, scalability and flexibility to match an organization’s changing requirements. In addition, they offer the benefits of: fast replacement of modules, small footprint with high power density and, when correctly configured to ensure system “right sizing,” operating costs can be kept to a minimum.

    In our ever-evolving world, future-proofing systems is one of the greatest challenges faced by system designers. The good news is that modern modular UPS systems can be quickly and easily reconfigured to adapt to changes in load requirements over time. This not only ensures the highest efficiency is maintained, but more importantly it guarantees availability of power protection whatever the future holds.

  • Chatsworth Products (CPI) has endorsed cabinet-level intelligent power distribution units (PDUs) with metering and switching capabilities as an integral part of an effective data center infrastructure management strategy for years. 

    Because most enterprise and colocation data centers typically deploy several hundreds of cabinets—each housing at least two PDUs—the challenge is to effectively and quickly administer and authenticate large PDU configurations. CPI's latest firmware update (version 4.4.211) for the eConnect® PDU further addresses this challenge—and considers the varying tools and resources customers have available today.

    Several customers maintain a programming staff and prefer to develop their own applications to automate configuration of their intelligent PDUs. CPI eConnect PDUs now includes a RESTful automatic programmable interface (API). The API allows customers to automate the process of configuring several parameters on the PDU, which are likely to be common across the complete deployment.

  • A range of new products have been added to Scolmore’s innovative and award-winning IEC Lock™ range, which build on the features of existing products to satisfy customer demand and complete the range offer.

  • The consistent use of direct current in a data center makes sense. Losses can be massively reduced. On the power side, the IEC has defined the frame with TS 62735-1. Now it is the turn of the device side. AC and DC are supposed to coexist in a transition phase.

  • In the process of global harmonization, the USA and Canada will adopt the IEC 60320 standard for device plugs with minor deviations.

  • In addition to 1-phase systems, 3-phase systems are also used in many places in industry and commerce. They often offer decisive advantages. It is important to ensure safe load balancing in order to prevent overloads.

    In August 2019, Russian media reports began to emerge that orphans were being brought to summer camps in Lithuania and taught to kill. The catch? The story wasn’t true – it was ‘fake news’. Although summer camps do exist in Lithuania (as they do the world over), the young attendees weren’t being taught warfare techniques.

    Misinformation campaigns have long been used by hostile governments against enemies and competitors, yet in the past few years the problem of ‘fake news’ has grown dramatically in scale. Facilitated by social media, it’s easier than ever to spread lies and confusion online. But concerned citizens are starting to take a stand - and they’re using AI to help.
