SA2-004, Vertiv Geist SwitchAir

The Vertiv Geist SwitchAir- SA2-004 is an active 2U airflow management device for 1U switches with air intake on front (port) side. Channels provide a dedicated path for cold aisle air to travel to the intake of the switch, using the on-board fans to push cool air from the cold aisle to the intake of the switch. The SwitchAir also creates a barrier preventing recirculation of hot exhaust air from the hot aisle from entering switch intakes.

Features

  • Provides a path for cool air to travel to the intake of network switch equipment and other devices with a front (port) side intake.
  • Creates a barrier to effectively prevent hot exhaust air from recirculating to device intakes.
  • Simple and quick installation in all standard racks or cabinets.
  • TAA compliant.

Benefits

  • Reduces the chance of network switches overheating by directing cool air to device intakes.
  • Reduces the likelihood of premature equipment failure due to high intake temperatures.
  • Improves equipment efficiency by providing network equipment with the same cold aisle air temperature as other devices in the rack.
  • Decreases wraparound hot airflow from the hot aisle to the cold aisle due to missing blanking panels.
  • Standard three-year warranty, upgraded to five years with product registration.
