RDHX Pro Honored as Best Data Center Cooling Innovation

We are excited to share that the nVent Rear Door Heat Exchanger (RDHX) Pro has earned the recognition of Best Data Center Cooling Innovation at DATACENTER Forum Bucharest.  

The growth of AI and high-performance computing is driving a need for better data center infrastructure. A key part of that infrastructure is cooling. High-performance chips generate a lot of heat when they operate so they need to be cooled constantly. The new RDHX Pro represents an important technological leap in driving efficiency, scalability and sustainability for high-performance computing technology.  

As data centers come under more scrutiny for their power use, using more efficient cooling technology is an important way to minimize data centers’ environmental impact. Data centers can spend less energy on cooling technology as it becomes more efficient, which reduces overall energy use. This also allows data centers to scale the amount of IT they can support without dramatically increasing the power they use on cooling. Even more efficient than air cooling, liquid cooling transfers heat from servers to cooled liquid lines, a method rapidly growing in popularity among data center managers.

RDHX Pro uses liquid cooling technology in combination with existing air cooling infrastructure to create an efficiently cooled environment at the server rack level rather than by cooling an entire room. The RDHX Pro fits in the place of a server rack back door and uses fans to pull hot air out from the server rack across cooled liquid coils in the door before it circulates back into the room. RDHX Pro brings this rear-door cooling technology to racks with up to 78 kW high-density racks, (at 14°C /57°F) meeting the requirements for the growing use of AI-enhanced applications, demands for higher energy efficiency and sustainability, and the need for greater data center space utilization. 

This solution is also very scalable and easy to service. Because data centers are regulating IT heat with cooling at the rack level instead of the room level, data center managers can install more RDHX units where they need them, cooling only the areas where they have active IT instead of cooling an entire room wherever IT is present. At 281mm with fans and 241mm without fans, RDHX Pro is the slimmest rear door cooler in the industry. The fans on the door, the touch screen control, and the power supply units all can be swapped out without turning off the unit, which is extremely important for an industry where 24/7 uptime is the standard. 

At the DATACENTER Forum event, nVent showcased the latest advancements in data center solutions that are enhancing the performance, efficiency, and reliability of data centers. Our team of experts was available to provide in-depth demonstrations, answer questions and discuss how our solutions can address specific needs for our data center customers.  

The RDHX Pro was also recently awarded Product Innovation of the Year at the Minnesota Manufacturing Awards from Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.
