Vertiv Geist SwitchAir

Network switches, load balancers and routers typically sit at the top and back portion of the rack, away from the cold aisle airflow at the front of the cabinet. This placement makes it difficult for cold air to travel from the front of the rack to the air intakes of the network switch equipment, increasing chances of failure over time. SwitchAir helps prevent failure by channeling cool air from the front of the rack to the air intakes regardless of where the equipment is mounted.

Features

  • Provides a path for cool air to travel to the intake of network switch equipment and other devices with rear (non-port side), front (port side), single or dual side intakes.
  • 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 and/or BAA 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.
