The new CMW30 water-cooled, ceiling-mount air conditioner from MovinCool is designed for server rooms and other applications with dense heat loads, but where an air-cooled air-conditioner cannot be used due to the lack of available space into which hot exhaust air can be directed. The unit’s cooling capacity is rated at 29,400 Btu/h total and 22,000 Btu/h sensible for computer rooms.
The CMW30 is 20 inches high, enabling it to fit above a drop ceiling. A built-in mounting bracket, flanges and vibration isolators are intended to allow easy, low-cost installation using standard, off-the-shelf hardware. The company says that no external condensing unit, refrigerant connections or charging are necessary, further reducing installation as well as maintenance costs.
MovinCool reports that the CMW30 features a high integrated-energy-efficiency ratio (IEER) of 17.0, made possible by a variable-speed inverter compressor and inverter fan motors. Additional green features include the use of R-410A refrigerant, as well as voluntary RoHS compliance in advance of mandated requirements.
“We designed the CMW30 based on what our customers told us they wanted,” said Mike Paulson, manager, heat management department. “By extending the application range of our air conditioners, this new water-cooled unit gives our customers greater flexibility in choosing a MovinCool air conditioner that fits their particular needs.”
