EIC Solutions launches new air conditioned rack enclosure designed for IT and data centers

IT Rack Air Conditioned Enclosure - Rear View, Left SideEIC Solutions, Inc., a leading manufacturer of thermoelectric air conditioners, electronic enclosures and transit cases, announced today the launch of the Protector™ Series IT Rack Enclosure.

EIC Solutions recognized a challenge. Many businesses do not have the space or budget to create a dedicated, cooled server room, but cannot handle the noise and clutter that results from leaving IT Equipment out in the open. Housing it in a segregated area that does not have independent climate control can lead to serious network reliability issues, including catastrophic failure in extreme cases.

As a result, EIC developed the new Protector Series IT Rack Enclosure. This product provides a different solution to the IT and data center market through a fully enclosed, air conditioned rack designed specifically with the space requirements and unique cooling needs of IT, data center, and networking customers.

EIC integrated 5,000 to 27,000 BTU/HR air conditioners to allow companies with limited space and budget to achieve a fully cooled network rack without needing to revise their building HVAC system to handle the excessive heat generated in a server room.

“In today’s Network Infrastructures there is a growing demand for expandable network sizes,” said Lori Galdo, EIC sales engineer. “The need for numerous cables exiting a single enclosure led us to add larger cable entry/exit ways at both the top of the enclosure and below the rear door. These include adjustable, gasket ‘pinch bars’ that allow for ease in running wires and help to provide a good seal around the cables.”

EIC furthered the design by including a waste heat removal duct that easily routes the waste heat generated by the integral cooling system out of the workspace. EIC also included a smoked polycarbonate window to keep the clean look of the IT Rack Enclosure while still providing visibility of important equipment indicator lights.

Many options and IT equipment on the market today are designed specifically for use with square-holed rack rails. These pieces will integrate seamlessly into the square holes that come standard in every Protector Series IT Rack Enclosure.

Since every Protector Series IT Rack Enclosure is built from the ground up, EIC’s customers have complete flexibility in the design of their specific enclosure. EIC’s experts can create a package specifically to fit the space and cooling constraints of a client’s particular needs.
