Columbus, Ohio: Emerson Network Power has announced launching the new Liebert SRC mini-split system for edge computing spaces, such as network closets and server rooms. The system, the announcement said, is available in North America, in capacities from 18,000 BTU (4.5kW) to 36,000 BTU (9kW).

According to the announcement, the new system delivers cooling capacities appropriate for small spaces where precision cooling systems with humidity control are not required. The company claimed that system also offers industry-best Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) and Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER).

Giving details, the company revealed that the new mini-split system will operate with the Emerson iCOM CMS monitoring system, which is will be released later in 2016. The announcement explained that iCOM CMS is an IoT solution that will provide remote monitoring through building management systems (BMS) and through a unique mobile app, which will provide status, alarms and service workflows. Furthermore, it allows for remote management, monitoring and setup behind secure company firewalls, added the announcement.

According to a recent Emerson Network Power survey of IT and data centre managers in North America, managers responding to the survey, the company said, reportedly mentioned insufficient cooling capacity and visibility into the spaces as the top concerns in small IT spaces. For these environments, the company explained, dedicated cooling is becoming a necessity and real-time insight into room temperatures and cooling system performance is increasingly important. The company added that half of IT and data centre managers surveyed reportedly said they will likely deploy dedicated cooling systems in network closets and server rooms in the year ahead.

John Peter (JP) Valiulis, Vice President of Marketing, Thermal Management for Emerson Network Power in North America, said: “The Liebert SRC provides simple, high efficiency cooling and addresses small space cooling challenges. Its revolutionary monitoring application will reduce risks in these spaces, through real-time alarming, remote visibility and workflow tracking.”
