Noise and heat are the two by-products of rack-mounted servers and the ancillary equipment that network engineers constantly battle to ensure temperature levels in cabinets remain below manufacturers recommended levels and sound levels comply with occupational health and safety guidelines.
Noise control - why do you need it?
The UCoustic 9210 range of 19-inch soundproof rack mount cabinets are the only commercially available network/IT cabinet in the world proven to deliver a sound reduction of 28.5dB(A) and a heat dissipation of 7.2KW.
To put this into non-technical terms, human conversation measured at a distance of three to five feet away ranges between 60 and 70dB(A). If the speaker increases their volume by just 10dB(A) the human ear will perceive this as a doubling in the noise level: an increase of 20dB(A) will be perceived as a quadrupling of the noise.
Our UCoustic 9210 network/IT cabinet range delivers a noise levels reduction equal to about five times less than that produced by your current rack mount equipment.
In an IT/Network context, the typical noise from two low form factory servers with an average CPU loads is 62dB(A): Four servers is 65dB(A): Eight servers, 68dB(A)*. With a UCoustic™ soundproof cabinet placed in an office environment – typically between 48dB(A) (average office without speech) and 78dB(A) (busy office with speech) – you will not be able to hear the sound from within the UCoustic™ Cabinet unless you had your ear pressed up against it.
The importance of temperature control
While office/engineering room noise levels can make for an uncomfortable working environment, excessive heat can have a catastrophic effect on the reliability of any rack mounted installation, resulting in server shut-downs.
Excessive heat is also an expensive problem, preventing cabinets from being populated to their maximum capacity, requiring the purchase of additional storage solutions.
The UCoustic 9210 range dissipates the heat produced by servers, disk drives and controllers by up to 7.2KW.
This is equivalent to the heat produced by seven, single-bar electric radiators, or about the same temperature required to heat a 100sq.m (1,000 sq.ft) room.
Our customers have found the UCoustic 9210 range allows up to twice as many servers and components to be mounted in a single cabinet without exceeding manufacturers operating temperature guidelines. Noise levels drop to where the noise produced by the cooling fans in desktop systems exceeds that produced by densely populated cabinets.
To achieve the maximum heat dissipation filler panels should be used to block all rack "u" not being used by the equipment on the front rails. This prevents warm air from recirculating in the cabinet. Warm air is evacuated through rear door fans at a rate of up to 7.2KW in an active cabinet and by up to 2.75KW in a passive cabinet. These figures have been independently verified by MIRA Labs to measure the heat dissipation.
