Self-Contained, Fully-Integrated, Row-Based Infrastructure
Part of the SmartRow Platform
This specification defines the characteristics and requirements of the Vertiv SmartRow DCR, an adaptive, scalable, modular infrastructure system that includes integrated IT equipment racks, environmental controls, power distribution and fire suppression and is designed for the support of IT systems and electronic equipment.
Optional system configurations shall include 20kW (N+1) or 36kW (N) environmental controls; centralized free-standing or rack-mounted UPS; adaptive, managed, or elementary rack PDU’s; and infrastructure management and monitoring systems.
The SmartRow DCR is designed in accordance with the current revision of the following agency standards. Where a conflict arises between these documents and statements made herein, the statements in this specification shall govern.
The SmartRow DCR shall consist of modular architecture to facilitate an adaptive and scalable infrastructure system. System modules shall be designed as integrated components of a complete stand-alone system and shall allow flexibility for capacity growth and expansion. System modules shall be designed in accordance with data center best practices, including hot air and cold air separation; high-efficiency dedicated cooling and integrated monitoring, control and fire suppression.
Design Requirements –DCR Control Panel and Fire Suppression System
The SmartRow DCR shall include an integrated DCR Control Panel and Fire Suppression System. This module shall contain the fire detection and suppression system, fire strobe light and audible horn, the power/fire control interface, fire suppression system abort and manual release switches and the load distribution center. The DCR Control Panel and Fire Suppression System shall provide power to the SmartRow DCR fire suppression system and to an automatic emergency airflow system. The DCR Control Panel and Fire Suppression System shall be furnished with an Emergency Power Off (EPO) provision for the SmartRow DCR Liebert PDX/PCW controls and optional UPS systems. The load distribution center shall be used to distribute power to powered loads inside the SmartRow DCR.
The environmental control system shall be a factory-assembled SmartRow DCR Liebert PDX (Air – Cooled or Water/Glycol cooled system) or Liebert PCW (Chilled Water cooled system). Standard 60Hz units shall be CSA (NRTL-C) certified to the harmonized U.S. and Canadian product safety standard, CSA C22.2 No. 236/UL 1995 for Heating and Cooling Equipment and are marked with the CSA c-us logo The system shall be designed for draw through air arrangement to ensure even air distribution to the entire face area of the coil. The SmartRow DCR Liebert PDX/PCW unit must be specifically installed facing the front or rear of the DCR system. SmartRow DCR Environmental Control systems shall be configurable as follows:
The SmartRow DCR shall include (1) 42U x 800mm wide x 1230 mm deep DCR networking rack. SmartRow networking racks are pre-configured and optimized to support networking equipment and large amounts of cabling. They are based on the DCE rack platform, and will be furnished with four rack PDU brackets and two rows of cable management fingers in the front of the racks. These will be factory installed to reduce assembly time and labor exposure.
The remaining racks will be 42U x 700mm wide x 1230 mm deep DCR server racks. These are also based on the DCE rack platform, and they will be furnished with (2) factory installed rack PDU brackets in the rear of the racks. The pre-configured, factory integrated equipment racks minimize on-site deployment time and labor while increasing consistency and proper operation of the SmartRow. Racks at either end of the row use solid side panels to ensure proper airflow management and are clearly labeled to ensure they are properly located during installation.
Both rack types will be equipped with EIA 310-D-compliant rack-mount EIA rails to accommodate powered loads inside the SmartRow DCR. Each rack will also be furnished with, a bag of (6) velcro strips for rack PDU cable management and (1) factory installed Liebert 2T sensor & probes. The DCR racks shall be fully factory-assembled and shall include all appropriate design provisions to integrate with the DCR base (supply) and top (return) airflow plenums.
