CommScope Partners with Hydrogenics to Provide Indoor Backup Power Solution for Data Centers
-Data center operators benefit from a clean backup power solution that occupies the same space as one server cabinet -
Hydrogen Fuel Cell Rack In
Believed to be the first-of-its-kind, this scalable indoor fuel cell
solution can provide up to 30 kilowatts (kW) of reliable,
environmentally-friendly backup power to enterprise computing systems.
This is enabled through an existing partnership with
"Power loss can affect lines of businesses and impact the ability to
maintain service level performance with customers," said
Multiple power racks can be installed to scale in 30kW increments and sustain a variable runtime from hours to days, based on customer requirements and hydrogen tank options. With the width of a standard server cabinet and the height of only six-and-a-half feet, the cabinet can easily fit at the end of a data center row without taking up a large amount of valuable real estate.
"Space within most data centers is at a premium and this backup power
solution takes up the least amount compared to a battery rack or other
backup power solutions," said
When paired with an appropriate uninterruptable power supply, the scalable indoor fuel cell rack can be configured for 10, 20 or 30kWs of sustained alternating current power. The fuel cell solution is quiet, emits no greenhouse gases and can be deployed indoors with the hydrogen fuel tank sited outside the building. These racks are an ecological alternative to battery racks and generators.
The fuel cell solution converts chemical energy directly into electrical energy without any combustion. The system provides highly efficient, reliable and uninterrupted backup power to data center and business systems without the need for costly regular maintenance. The only by-products are heat and a small amount of water.
