Winner of ‘Datacentre Energy Efficiency Product of the Year’ at the 2014 Datacentre Solutions Awards and ‘Commercial Building Services Product of the Year’ at the 2014 H&V News Awards, the SmartCool™ is developed to meet demand for an ultra-efficient, dedicated chilled water PAC system that delivers extremely quiet and accurate climate control for critical data centre applications.

The SmartCool™ CW delivers up to 30% more cooling kW/m² when compared with competitor units, keeping footprint to a minimum to free up premium IT space.

Applied cutting edge technology enables the SmartCool™ to quietly and precisely control room temperature, humidity and air quality to ensure efficient, reliable, 24/7 operation of sensitive systems in data centres and other critical applications.

Integrated with a colour touchscreen user interface, Vu™
All SmartCool™ units are now integrated with a colour touchscreen user interface, Vu™, which further enhances your interaction with the SmartCool™ control system.

Optimise your unit selection
The SmartCool™ gives you the flexibility to optimise unit selection to match the considerations of your specific project – whether a new or retrofit application or driven by cost, efficiency, space, noise, resilience and/or ambient conditions.

Choose from over 150 downflow models available in:

  • 8 system types
  • 17 case sizes
  • Single or dual circuit featuring: DX air cooled (16kW –140kW); DX air cooled with chilled water (16 – 127kW), DX water cooled (60kW – 127kW); DX water cooled with glycol 
    free-cooling (60 – 127kW); Chilled water (11kW – 233kW)
CW units within the range are exempt from Ecodesign, as are DX units when applied in process cooling applications (i.e. data centres). DX units within the range used in comfort cooling applications are non-Ecodesign compliant >12kW. Please refer to your Airedale account manager for full details
