Room-based IT climate control
- Raised floor climate control
Modern IT climate control technology ensures optimum thermal conditions in rooms exposed to high loads, such as data centres and server rooms. The main aim here is to ensure constant temperatures and precise humidity levels. Continuous-operation designs and redundant systems ensure that all key functions are maintained. Rittal CRAC systems dissipate waste heat on demand, ensuring that the overall system operates in the most energy-saving way possible.
- Rack-specific climate control
The LCP Inline is designed for siting within a bayed enclosure suite. The hot air is extracted from the room or warm aisle at the rear of the unit, cooled, then blown out forwards into the cold aisle, where it is available to your IT equipment.
The LCP Inline achieves maximum performance and efficiency in conjunction with Rittal cold aisle containment. With this product, a raised floor is not necessary.

Cold aisle containment
Instead of flooding the data centre with cold air the cold aisle containment system from Rittal effectively traps
the cool air exactly where it is needed directly in front of the air intake of the servers. Cold air is directed
across the whole height of the enclosure ensuring that there are no hotspots and the hot air is exhausted out of
the system. Due to the cold aisle being contained there is no chance of the hot exhaust air mixing with the cold
inlet air, therefore there is an increase in system efficiency.
The special energy efficiency of the Rittal cold aisle concept has a simple and plausible explanation:
CRAC system and cold aisle containment
1. Cold and hot air cannot mix, warm air does not flow into the cold aisle.
2. The system can be operated with a much higher extracted air temperature.
3. Standard air circulation cooling units are operated at an optimum thermal efficiency level.
By using Rittal cold aisle containment, climate control
of the room (in conjunction with the Rittal CRAC system)
may be optimised in terms of energy efficiency and
- High energy efficiency
- Increased cooling output per server enclosure
- Easily retro-fitted to existing systems
- Protection of your existing infrastructure
LCP Inline and cold aisle containment
In conjunction with the new LCP Inline, cold aisle
containment is a further option for the efficient
dissipation of high heat loads from server enclosures.
- A raised floor is not required for climate control
- To accommodate higher heat loads per server enclosure
- Redundancies easily achieved
- Direct supply of cold air to your server and network components
- Rack cooling
Active cooling (use of the ambient air)
Fan systems for active cooling amplify the air exchange inside the rack and use ambient air for cooling.
Passive cooling (use of the ambient air)
The air cooled via the regular ambient air or via the building's air-conditioning system is routed into the raised floor for rack cooling.
