New 250 and 800 AMP power supply via track for mission critical data centre environments
Daxten launches a new Starline Track Busbar at Datacenter Dynamics London
Currently in mission critical, R & D and testing environments any short interruption or malfunction of the power supply can have catastrophic effects on IT operations, company data and critical transactions. It is, therefore, necessary to ensure busbar systems are secure whilst offering the flexibility to make changes when needed. In addition space restrictions and rack density issues are becoming more and more important when planning for the future. R&D and testing environments as well as live Data Centres often need to be reconfigured frequently to replicate real world scenarios or to update hardware. Starline Track Busbar provides secure power delivery whilst offering more flexibility than traditional cable distribution methods.
Flexibility, expandability and individual configurations – without downtime!
Starline Track Busway is different – a continuous access track busway allows for power plug-ins to be placed where they are required, not at predefined locations as is the case with cable systems. Power plug-ins are configured to the customer’s requirements with 16A, 32A or 63A single and/or three phase connectors available for use with the existing 100, 225 or 400 and the new 250 and 800 Amp track. Further plug-in versions with up to 125A are available for the 250, 400 and 800 tracks, meaning that Starline can support any size of Data Centre. The connections between the track elements consist of a patent protected spring pressure connection, which is nut and bolt free, preventing loose connections or flaking. The same spring pressure connections are used to connect the power plug-ins to the busbar ensuring a secure and solid connection at all times. The entire busbar system is easy to assemble and dismantle, meaning that tracks can be inexpensively installed, moved, and expanded, regardless if it has been installed overhead or under the raised floor.
The number and type of connectors can be determined by the user. For example, a 16 Amp single phase connector can be situated next to a 32 Amp three phase connector on the same bar or even within the same plug-in. Even drop cords and hard-wire options are available. The plug-ins are designed in a way that one unit can supply power connections to multiple server racks. This is a huge advantage in highly dense testing or demo labs.
Optional power monitoring is available using the Critical Power Monitor (CPM), the first-ever touch screen wireless monitor for data centres at track and circuit level, completes the wide range of options available when using the Starline solutions.
Sustainability & cost-effectiveness
The flexible as well as modular and scalable design is one of the reasons, why mission critical data centres rely on the Starline Track Busway for power distribution. Of course economic aspects play a big role as to why companies are choosing the Starline solution. Because of the flexibility that Starline offers the TCO is much lower when compared to cable-based solutions. With a TCO saving ranging from 20 to 40 percent and with 30 to 50 percent less installation and maintenance costs (depending on the size and complexity of the installation) Starline is one of the most cost-effective power solutions in the market.
