Efficient cooling 
for data centers

Count on sustainable solutions

Work generates heat. So it's no wonder that data centers quickly get too hot. To prevent this, a large proportion of the energy required must be used just on cooling the hardware.

Thank goodness for ebm‑papst’s highly efficient EC fans, which increase cooling capacity and reduce energy consumption. And because every data center has different requirements, a wide range individual solutions are possible – from cooling individual rows of servers through to modular designs with high air performance and cooling towers.

Always intelligently networked, of course, for maximum transparency and reliability with lower costs and emissions.

Sustainable Solutions - Pioneer Spirit - Intelligent Technology - Customized Solutions - ebmpapst

When it comes to finding the perfect cooling system, it’s not just product features that are crucial, but the optimal interaction of all components. We offer intelligently networked complete solutions for detailed data acquisition and analysis, demand-driven operation, and remote monitoring and predictive maintenance.

And we provide you with everything from a single source: server and cloud connections, interfaces, protocols, proprietary software, application-specific algorithms and comprehensive product expertise. Networking is via Modbus, WiFi, Ethernet, Bluetooth, or NFC.

Our intelligently networked solutions provide clear information in real time. So you can monitor all the key parameters such as temperature, speed and power consumption at any time and from anywhere.

The aim of preventive maintenance is to avoid downtime and stoppages. To do this, the fan sends information about upcoming maintenance work. In conjunction with optional vibration detection, critical vibration velocities can also be detected and suppressed. The result: a longer service life for the entire system and a lower total cost of ownership.

Predictive maintenance relies on highly accurate sensor technology combined with integrated intelligence to provide accurate information about the actual condition of the fan. Based on this data, precise information about the remaining service life is possible depending on the relevant usage behavior.
