Thermal Edge Success Story Blackbox 2013

  1. 1. THERMAL EDGE SUCCESS STORY: Thermal Edge Helps Major Communications Firm Solve Climate Control and Distribution Challenges Controlling Server Temperatures Under Challenging Environmental Conditions Servers and other networking equipment need to be kept cool and free from contaminates for the best reliability, but some installations require placing cabinets in areas where climate-controlled rooms are impractical or not available. Black Box is a leading techology solutions provider of IT infrastructure, cable, high-performance KVM, specialty networking, and ProAV products. Some of their clients require control cabinets or server rack systems in locations where dust, humidity and heat present unique challenges. Black Box relies exclusively on Thermal Edge to provide closed-loop cooling for networking equipment in these hostile environments. “Switching to Thermal Edge has been a good move for us. They appreciate our business and treat us well. They have great engineering minds, and they know how to design and build good products.” - Gina Dickson Director of Infrastructure Products For these situations, Black Box offers ClimateCab, a line of NEMA 12 rated IT cabinets with closed-loop cooling. These tough cabinets are a miniature server room in a box. They isolate their interior from the environment and allow clients to place their networking equipment just about anywhere. Black Box Searches for a New ClimateCab Cooling Solution Black Box manufactures the cabinets, but relies on an outside source for the cooling equipment. The cooling units they were using had analog controls located inside the cabinet. This meant service personnel had to open the cabinet to read and adjust the thermostat, exposing the equipment inside to environmental hazards. Disposing of condensate was also a challenge. Moisture in the air that condensed on the evaporator coil in the air conditioner had to be removed. The client needed to route a hose from the air conditioner to a drain to dispose of the water. Black Box requires their cooling vendor to send the air conditioning units to them for distribution. When a customer orders a ClimateCab, Black Box ships the cabinet and air conditioning unit out to the customer for installation. The old air conditioners arrived at Black Box with multiple units on the same pallet, complicating inventory and logistics. Black Box Chooses Thermal Edge Air Conditioners for Ease of Logistics, Installation and Use Black Box needed a closed-loop cooling unit supplier that would provide air conditioners with exterior controls in a manner that would simplify logistics. They approached Thermal Edge in 2011 after an introduction and endorsement from a mutual contact. The first ClimateCabs with Thermal Edge air conditioners went out to customers within six months. Thermal Edge’s air conditioners feature a programmable thermostat with digital controls on the outside of the housing, so personnel can read the temperature and adjust the settings without opening the cabinet. Customers appreciate the illuminated control panel that makes it easy to use in dark rooms, and the audible alarm that sounds if the interior temperature exceeds a programmed set point. Also, Thermal Edge air conditioners use an energy saving method to evaporate any condensation into the air outside the cabinet. This eliminated the need to install the ClimateCab near a drain and greatly expanded the possible installation locations. Black Box clients are free to install ClimateCabs almost anywhere. Thermal Edge worked with Black Box to provide a shipping arrangement to suit their inventory and distribution needs. They provide Black Box with one unit per pallet, making it easy to ensure each customer gets the correct number of air conditioners with their cabinets. Black Box is extremely pleased with Thermal Edge’s cooling solutions, technical expertise and customer service. They plan to continue the relationship indefinitely and are adding Thermal Edge units to more of their products. Thermal Edge is proud to be Black Box’s cooling solution of choice.
