Schneider Electric has introduced the EcoStruxure micro data centre R-Series 42U Medium Density.
Optimised for IT applications in distributed locations that have industrial environments, the new micro data centre solution ships fully integrated for quick deployment. It features a heavy weigh load and large, industrial casters for easy movement.
According to Schneider, and the 42U Medium Density addresses the needs IT professionals and IT solution providers are facing in three ways:
Resilient and secure enclosure for on-site IT: Provides what Industry 4.0 environments require with a sealed design to protect against dust and moisture and a physically secure solution with features designed to support IT equipment with flexibility to power, cooling, and remote monitoring. Features NEMA 12/IP54 rated enclosure, sealed design.
Enhanced ease of ordering and deployment: Delivers a turnkey solution with integrated power, cooling, security, and management for ease of deployment, delivery, installation, quoting, and scalability.
Increased visibility: Features an APC Smart-UPS that provides monitoring with visibility to optimise performance, delivers data-driven recommendations, and enables visibility from anywhere, anytime, crucial at a time when there is a lack of staff to properly monitor equipment on-site.
“Industrial settings are not optimised for edge computing but there is an urgent need for IT systems to support edge computing trends,” said Jean-Baptiste Plagne, Vice President Offer Management, Rack & Edge Systems, Energy Management, Schneider Electric.
“This solution, with its 905kg (2,000lb) weight load, is ideal for heavy IT equipment with the enclosure, security, cooling, and power necessary to operate in an industrial environment. It delivers the innovation that is needed in industrial settings.”
The EcoStruxure micro data centee R-Series 42U Medium Density is now available in Europe.
