FYI, this story is more than a year old

Vertiv has officially introduced the Vertiv Liebert DM, its latest line of thermal management solutions designed for small and medium-sized computer rooms, IT closets and other edge applications.

With capacity ranges from 7 to 27 kW, the Liebert DM is now available across Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Using an intelligent algorithm, the floor-mounted Liebert DM thermal management solution is designed to provide enterprise-level cooling features to small computer rooms and network closets, to prevent overheating and downtime of IT equipment, the company states.

According to Vertiv, it's designed to provide year-round temperature and humidity control for IT applications.

It features a high sensible heat ratio (SHR) of greater than 0.9, making it useful for cooling IT environments versus standard comfort cooling solutions.

Users have the option to connect up to four units of the Liebert DM series in a single network. With automatic rotation features, multiple Liebert DM units can be installed, configured and synced to ensure optimal management of heat loads in most IT environments.

For example, a customer may opt to install four Liebert DM units in a computer room, and program them to run in a cycle and according to schedule, ensuring equal load distribution and greater efficiency.

In addition, built-in emergency features in the Liebert DM will automatically detect any failure, triggering an alarm for immediate action, thus ensuring sufficient cooling.

It's also equipped with user-friendly controls, including a 7-inch touchscreen colour display as well as real-time, graphic display of return air temperature and relative humidity.

Finally, the Liebert DM has built-in intelligent features for added protection, including a three-level password protection and email and SMS notification for remote monitoring functions.

According to Vertiv, the solution is ideal for businesses that require efficient, reliable and sensible equipment cooling, round-the-clock operation and precise internal environment.

It's built to support mission-critical applications such as small IT rooms and edge computing infrastructure in the fields of banking, healthcare, government, transport and energy, the company states. It can also support battery rooms and control rooms in industrial and manufacturing applications.

Vertiv Asia - India director for product offering and management for edge thermal solutions Preetam Shah says, “Many of today's businesses rely on sophisticated IT processors to enable digital applications in their day-to-day operations.

"Any failure in these delicate components can lead to potential breakdown and failure, which can have disastrous results. That's why for these applications, using precision cooling versus comfort cooling is recommended for optimal operation of the IT equipment.

"The Liebert DM is ideal in this scenario because of its highly efficient and energy-saving features that provide the best cooling versus traditional means.
