ColdLogik wins Queen’s Award for data centre cooling technology

USystems has won the 2013 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category for its ColdLogik data centre cooling range.

Michael Cook, USystems’ MD and founder said, “The Queen’s Award assessors were impressed that USystems could make a radical difference to the approach of data centre cooling with a simple idea that was well thought through and offers a complete, long term solution to the challenges of reducing data centre energy consumption, real estate, carbon footprint and other associated costs.”

The company launched the family of ColdLogik CL20 rear coolers in 2007 as the world’s first intelligent and fully integrated rear cooler system.

In addition to reducing energy consumption, ColdLogik rear coolers remove hot spots and can be retrofitted to existing or new build OEM cabinets using an interface.

ColdLogik rear coolers replace the traditional approach to data centre cooling by removing low and high density heat loads, with the added benefit of reducing the real estate inherent with hot aisle cold aisle, in row cooling, CRAC cooling and aisle containment designs.

Waste heat generated by active equipment within a cabinet is removed at source by water cooling – which  is 3,500 times more effective than air by volume.  Under normal circumstances, water and computing is not a good mix – however, by utilising a patented Leak Prevention System, the ColdLogik solution operates without fear of leakage.

To gain the optimum energy performance and control the room environment, ColdLogik coolers are used to control the entire computer room / data centre without additional air conditioning through the ColdLogik Management System, which intelligently maintains the room ambient temperature.
