Temperature management in data centers is essential to controlling costs and safeguarding critical equipment and applications. Part of ensuring energy efficiency and system reliability means adhering to the guidelines established by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). Recent ASHRAE recommendation for data center operating temperatures are on the rise, making higher load densities possible without replacing thermal management systems. However, making changes to align with industry standards isn’t as simple as turning up the thermostat in your home.
In this white paper, readers will learn:
- The importance of understanding their data center’s airflow
- Benefits of designing for elevated return air temperature (RAT)
- Why RAT in conjunction with supply air control logic is an emerging trend
