Proper Application of 415V Systems in North American Data Centers
Increasing pressure to reduce operating expenses and be more accountable for energy usage has pushed many data center owners to take steps to maximize efficiency while maintaining the availability required for their business-critical data centers. One option that has attracted their attention is increasing the voltage of power distributed to IT equipment to reduce transformer losses while increasing the efficiency of the server power supplies.
However, while these efficiency gains are real, they may not be quite as high as some data center owners perceive them to be. Furthermore, adopting this strategy may lead to additional application concerns that, if not properly addressed, may pose a risk to the safety of data center and maintenance personnel.
Read this paper now to learn about a safe and effective means of distributing high-power concentrations efficiently, without compromising availability or personnel safety.
