    07 Mar 2019 Katy Pollard of Listening Pig

    Britain’s largest manufacturer of specialist in-building water, oil and gas leak detection systems, Andel, is set to launch the latest addition to its Floodline leak detection system - a new hybrid environmental monitoring control panel – at Data Centre World (12-13 March, ExCel London).

    Andel’s team will launch Floodline 128 mk 2 panel, a multi-functional and customisable water, oil, multi-gas leak detection and environmental monitoring panel which comes packed with updated technology, enhanced installer and end-user functionality and a single connection to the BMS.

    The team will also be on hand to talk to visitors about how its unique Floodline leak detection services can allow early action to prevent damage, reduce disruption and limit loss in data centres. It will also showcase its specialist fuel oil storage and care services.

    Andel offers a unique combination of water, oil and gas leak detection systems, all managed via a single control panel. Crucially, for data centres, Floodline monitors concealed pipework for both water and refrigerant gas leaks from air conditioning systems as well as monitoring for humidity and temperature spikes – vital for server rooms. Andel also ensures that the fuel used to power standby generators is not leaking, is in good condition and is stored correctly within the requirements of the Oil Storage Regulations.


    Commercial Director, Mark Harris, said: “Data centres face a number of leak risks which would spell disaster if not detected. We are the only service provider offering both a leak detection service and fuel oil care services, all accessible via one control panel. We look forward to meeting visitors at Data Centre World to talk about their infrastructure management needs.”

  • The History of Olson Electronics Ltd

    06 Mar 2019 Marissa Maxwell

    In 1961 Olson Electronics Limited was founded and has remained a family run enterprise ever since. Originally producing components for radios, Olson quickly moved towards manufacturing instrument cases for the communications industry.


    In 1971Olson’s first PDU was designed for their own use at an exhibition. This innovation received orders due to its high build quality and saw the launch of standard UK 13 Amp power distribution units. Production expanded and new premises were found in Shoreditch, East London.



    In 1986 following market growth, Olson’s main focus became manufacturing power distribution units, which prompted another move to larger premises in Tottenham, North London. The communications industry was evolving and the 19” rack range for data cabinets was developed.



    In 1990 with the success and popularity of their 13A ranges, Olson launched a new international range to meet demand outside of the UK. Exports of both standard and rack mounting options soon increased Olson’s turnover.



    In 1998 Olson saw the move to the new head office in Stanmore where they are still based. This gave improved manufacturing facilities, (incorporating R&D) as well as sales and marketing alongside manufacturing. This allowed Olson to grow their bespoke service and shorten response times for design and manufacture.



    In 2001 came the launch of the data centre range, incorporating cable management to 19” rack mounting PDUs for the very first time. This quickly grew in popularity within the industry and the range has continued to expand.  A patent was applied for ‘sequential start’ which was then approved in 2006. This allows multi-power installations to have fast and secure start-up sequences, avoiding potentially damaging surges.



    In 2017 Olson exhibited for the first time at CEF Live which was a great experience and it helped to spread the knowledge of the Olson brand throughout the Wholesale industry. Olson also launched The Retractor shortly after the show following a lot of customer request which was a huge success and still is to this day. Olson also managed to exhibit at Data Centre World for the very first time early 2018 which proved very beneficial for letting the market know they were providing high-quality Power Distribution units to Data Centres.


    In 2019 Olson moved into Intelligence for the first time and designed their first range of smart PDU’s. Today Olson offer over 30 different standard catalogue product ranges catering for all types of applications. Despite their vast range of products, options and specifications are never-ending, the bespoke market growing is integral to the business and the relationship with their customers.

  • CENTIEL to Demonstrate Li-ion Battery Solution at DCW

    Leading UPS manufacturer, CENTIEL UK Ltd has announced it will demonstrate its new Li-ion battery solution for the first time at Data Centre World, on booth D1035. In addition, CENTIEL will show its 4th generation, industry leading, three-phase, true modular UPS system: CumulusPower plus the extensions to its range of stand-alone UPS: PremiumTower, ideally suited to applications where minimizing total cost of ownership is a significant factor.

    Mike Elms, managing director CENTIEL UK confirms: “Li-ion has been a ‘hot topic’ for some time now and has been adopted as the norm in other sectors such as electronics and automotive. The UPS industry is now taking notice and starting to see how datacentres can take advantage of its many benefits.

    “CENTIEL’s CumulusPower – known for its “9 nines” (99.9999999%) system availability and low total cost of ownership – works with both VRLA and Li-ion so we will demonstrate both battery types within one frame at DCW,” explains Elms. “Although this configuration wouldn’t mix in real-life, using half Li-ion and half VRLA cells will show one of the main advantages of Li-ion technology: that it offers 3-4 times greater power for the same space. As a result, our Li-ion solution is aimed at comms rooms with weight restrictions and or space limitations.

    “Because Li-ion works at a much higher temperature than VRLA blocks it can be also advantageous for those who don’t want to use expensive air conditioning to control the temperature in the comms room in order to reduce costs and their carbon foot print. Li-ion also has a longer life than VRLA batteries and much faster re-charge times. At DCW our experienced staff will be on-hand to discuss the pros and cons of both Li-ion and VRLA batteries in relation to various applications, including their suitability for the smallest 10kW N+1 systems, right through to the largest UPS.

    “In addition to our battery solutions we will be showing: CumulusPower our scalable and flexible true modular three-phase UPS system that combines class leading availability and efficiency that makes it perfect for use in small, medium and large datacenters,” continues

    Elms. “However, not every application requires a modular UPS and for these applications and so we will also demonstrate the latest additions to our PremiumTower range. It has the same Swiss build quality and innovative technology seen in CumulusPower but comes in a lower cost, stand-alone cabinet, ranging from 10kW – 120 kW.”

    Visit us at Data Centre World, 12th – 13th March on stand D1035.
