    Re: Air conditioning

    Our unit has been in for over a year, little portable one, running nearly 24/7 guess i better inform our bursar it needs servicing.

    How are you meant to work out the wattage over everything in my room lol... 4 dell poweredges, 2 acers, 1 laptop, 1 pc, 4 monitors, 1 strip light, 1 printer, 2 pipes connected to the heating system and 5 large netgear swtiches lol... i couldn't tell you the wattage of any of it.

    You can get a little adapater that sits inline between the device and the plug socket. This will tell you the Wattage directly.

    Alternatively just use a multimeter.

    Or you could go off the quoted wattages from manufacturers websites?

    Re: Air conditioning

    Well that won't work will it? The wattage on my PC here is listed as "400W", but that is the MAXIMUM it will DELIVER. So, if running minimal processor it will be less, and flat out (due to losses) more.

    The heating pipes won't have a rating plate on them. How about sunlight and your body heat? 150w sedentary seems a common figure, but I thought it was higher.

    In short, you need someone who knows what they are doing to advise you!

    we're cooling our server room on two amcor portable 15k units right now - there is a split unit in there (24k btu) but it packed up 2 weeks ago (we move to the new building in 2 weeks time!!!)

    they're coping alright but are running constantly which isn't going to be good, keeping the room between 25-28c... venting all of the hot air into the corridor to cook the kids


    and i just realise what a noob ive been, i saw it as 06-06 and thought, oh, 2008! nope! 2007... erghhh. i blame the similar threads thing!!

    our office is split into 2....one side has all our servers in...and it gets pretty hot in there! so the aircon is on max in that part of the office. then our side where we work and have our workstations also has an air con unit which is on if we feel too hot...its highly recommended you have one in your server room!!

    ...and the proportion of heat that's generated by flourescent lighting in the room should also be taken into account.
