Mitsubishi Electric recently announced the launch of its new i-NEXT range, the latest edition from the Mitsubishi Electric Hydronics & IT Cooling Systems portfolio.
Following on from Mitsubishi Electric’s 2016 purchase of DeLclima, the parent company of the RC Group, the launch of the i-NEXT DX range establishes a strong position for the company’s products within the UK market.
The i-NEXT direct expansion (DX) Computer Room Air Conditioning range uses advanced inverter technology designed to maximise energy-efficiency and help reduce operating costs. The range is ideal for temperature sensitive areas as it provides high sensible cooling and close control of temperature and humidity.
Using inverter-driven technology with Mitsubishi Electric BLDC compressors, users can maximise their sites’ energy efficiency, helping to reduce overall running costs of the IT equipment. With capacities of up to 140kW for down flow, and 105kW for up flow configurations, the i-NEXT DX range is well-equipped to deal with a wide variety of data centre and computer room applications.
Deane Flint, Sales Director for Mitsubishi Electric, comments: “With the demands for faster, more powerful IT infrastructure only increasing, cooling equipment has never been more important. A critical commercial requirement for data centre managers is to ensure a low overall operating cost, and a key element of this involves installing cooling plant that is as energy-efficient as possible.”
The i-NEXT’s ultralight composite EC plug fans massively reduces its noise and power usage. Additionally, integrated control of up to 10 units allows for intelligent redundancy management via LAN, removing the need for third party controls. Automatic restart capabilities ensure that the systems are up and running immediately after a power outage, saving valuable time. Easy front access to the main components also allows for quick inspection and routine maintenance.
The i-NEXT range comes with a host of optional extras including; Modbus RS485 and BACnet TCP/IP connectivity, electrical heaters and steam humidifiers, discharge plenums and floor stands.
Mitsubishi Electric offer a number of other solutions for IT cooling, including door cooling units, perimeter cooling units and rack cooling solutions, all available in both DX and chilled water variants and matched with the optimal MEHITS chiller. Find out more on the website.
