DC air conditioning units

DC Air Conditioning Units for Electronics Cooling product range by Dantherm Group

Why choose DC air conditioning units?

Consistent cooling is a high priority in practically any data centre or telecommunication shelter. If servers, routers and other essential equipment are allowed to overheat, this can cause immense damage and result in costly repairs, replacements and downtime.

To meet this growing need, our DC air conditioning units have been intelligently manufactured to deliver an unbroken cycle of cool air into these environments. Powerful enough to cool large spaces, yet slimline to minimise space usage, our designs match the demands of these delicate locations.

Our systems work by circulating air in a closed loop, with warm air drawn from the top of the room and cooled air returned at the bottom. Heat is transferred to the outside via a refrigerant system, which guarantees dust, humidity and other unwanted particles do not enter these spaces.

While many conventional and portable air conditioning units use AC power, DC units offer several advantages over these. They are typically more energy-efficient, save power, last longer and generate less noise than their AC equivalents.

Our data centre cooling technology builds upon these principles and beyond. By not avoiding the use of an inverter there is no loss in power conversion, further increasing their efficiency. The brushless motor used in our units has permanently magnetised, rotating magnets and a fixed armature, removing problems of connecting current to a moving armature.

Completely plug-and-play air con for electronics with no need to employ an experienced cooling engineer to install, our DC air conditioning units are easy to operate and maintain. Plus, they are designed with flanges for convenient wall-mounting to make this potentially tiresome task as simple as possible.

Rigorously tested in every climate and units supporting data centres and telecoms worldwide, we are proud to deliver air conditioning solutions that ensure uptime and maximise energy savings – even in the most challenging environments.

DC air-conditioning units: Frequently Asked Questions

What is a DC air-conditioning unit?

The electronic equipment used throughout telecom networks generate heat as they operate. If temperatures inside these electronic shelters are not properly controlled, it can cause vital equipment to slow down or even fail, leading to costly downtime and follow-up repairs.

DC air-conditioning units are designed specifically to keep this critical infrastructure suitably cool year-round. Easy to use and exceptionally energy efficient, these solutions are the key to maximum uptime and minimal disruption in data centres and telecom shelters.

How does a DC air-conditioning unit work?

In order to keep essential technology at the right temperature all year round, DC air-conditioners circulate cool air within a sealed system. Warm air is drawn from the upper part of the room, cooled through the unit’s internal refrigeration system, and distributed back at the bottom.

This approach prevents dust, moisture, and other contaminants from entering the space, and keeps technology operating efficiently and effectively at minimal running costs.

What are the benefits of using a DC air-conditioning unit?

DC air-conditioners excel at electronics cooling as this technology operates highly efficiently, minimising energy consumption and keeping operating costs low – ideal for electronic shelters that need constant cooling at all times of year.

Especially when compared with conventional AC-powered air-conditioning units, DC units are typically more energy efficient, last longer and generate less noise.

Additionally, by operating in a closed loop, unwanted contaminants such as dust, moisture and pollution are prevented from entering electronic shelters and causing damage to critical systems inside.

Our range of market-leading DC air-conditioners harness over six decades of experience, and are characterised by their simple installation, quiet operation and long-lasting quality.

Can a DC air-conditioning unit be used in both residential and commercial applications?

No. Our professional DC air-conditioning units are specifically designed to provide efficient, effective cooling in electronic shelters, and are sold only to industry professionals either directly or via our extensive network of suppliers.

How do I choose the right size DC air-conditioning unit for my space?

An overly small A/C unit will not deliver the necessary amount of cool air to these critical settings, while a unit too large will raise running costs substantially. To drive the best performance and achieve meaningful savings, it is important to install the right size DC air-conditioner.

However, there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution when it comes to optimal electronics cooling. The size of a shelter, the heat generated by the equipment and the outside conditions can all affect what size solution is most suitable for your setup.

How does a DC air-conditioning unit compare to a traditional AC unit in terms of energy efficiency?

Many conventional air-con systems use AC power. However, DC air-conditioning units are typically more energy efficient, able to operate at a reduced cost and minimise consumption.

As well as being a sustainable standalone solution, DC air-con can also work alongside free coolers to reach optimal temperatures using significantly less energy.

While the savings generated will depend on the outdoor climate, an expertly implemented dual cooling strategy can limit energy use by using free cooling where possible, reducing a shelter’s reliance on air-conditioners

Can I buy your DC air-conditioning units online?

For all of our DC air-conditioning units, VAT-registered companies can get a quote very quickly by pressing 'I want to buy' and inserting their enquiry and contact details.
