SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC: Drives Data Center Sustainability with Uniflair Cooling Innovation

Schneider Electric™, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced its new range of Uniflair™ Chillers with inverter screw compressors for large data centers, which provide the efficiency, precision, and configurability to adapt to current and future data center cooling challenges.

The air-cooled and free cooling extra-large chillers provide increased cooling capacity and lower power consumption for high energy efficiency in all environmental conditions. Uniflair Chillers with screw compressors are within the first solutions to leverage low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants.

Data center cooling innovation advances sustainability and resiliency missions

Schneider’s latest 300-2200kW Uniflair Chillers introduce major improvements to high efficiency and reliable cooling for data center applications and enhance the current platform with new sizes and configurations. The chillers:

• Offer modular configuration and are packaged to simplify and accelerate site deployment and design.

• Integrate a free-cooling system that leverages outdoor air to provide cooling, minimizing energy consumption without impacting unit size.

• Minimize annual energy usage, improving TCO.

• Achieve +2MW with high water temperature, increasing unit cooling capacity in a reduced footprint.

For more information about the Uniflair Chillers, and the specific new extra-large screw air-cooled and free-cooling chiller range (XRAC / XRAF) models, see product specifications, here.

Furthering Sustainability Action with iMason’s Climate Accord

In addition to driving data center sustainability through innovation, Schneider Electric reinforced its commitment to industry collaboration as a founding coalition member in the Infrastructure Masons Climate Accord. Infrastructure Masons (iMasons), a non-profit professional association, has assembled a historic cooperative of over 50 companies, including AWS, Microsoft and Google, to reduce carbon in digital infrastructure materials, products, and power. The mission of this accord is to standardize global carbon accounting of digital infrastructure, influencing market-based decisions to drive the industry to achieve carbon neutrality.
