Surging demand on data centers is constantly placing new strains on their temperature control. Hot spots and inadequate cooling can cause costly disruptions. It is estimated that cooling and humidification control accounts for 40% to 60% of a data center’s physical operating costs.
Trane tailors HVAC systems to different centers’ widely varying needs, offering support with design, installation, commissioning and ongoing operations. Data centers may benefit from our:
• modular systems, allowing for expandability as needed.
• integrated management for all systems, ensuring that savings in one do not increase costs in another.
• rapid restart chiller plant.
And with the industry’s largest number of LEED Accredited Professionals, Trane works with industry and construction organizations to advance sustainable green practices and the associated energy and financial efficiencies.

The NJ2 facility is a split tower with 10 300-ton Trane RTAA air-cooled chillers: five on each tower, each with a Systecon Inc. pumping system and control panels. The control system did not allow for the kind of comprehensive monitoring and control a mission-critical data center requires.
Uptime is crucial to the operation of a data center and the HVAC system is mission critical to maintain the necessary environment. ARRIS Group, Inc. demands 99% or better uptime in order to deliver unmatched reliability for their customers. To achieve and maintain such a high level of uptime, they require:
