A complete edge management solution
The new 43U C-Series offers a complete edge management solution that can be remotely monitored with EcoStruxure IT Software and Digital Services. Schneider Electric’s portfolio of software and digital services provides the power and flexibility for customers to seamlessly manage critical infrastructure devices on their own, with a partner, or to leverage Schneider Electric’s expert service engineers to manage it on their behalf.
The 43U C-Series was designed for IT solution providers, distributors, and alliances as well as IT professionals across vertical segments including banking, financial services, retail, healthcare, government, and education. The 43U C-Series is designed for low-to-medium density applications and environments without 24/7 precision cooling for sensitive IT such as supply rooms, IT closets, and office spaces.
Benefits of the new 43U C-Series:
· Energy Efficient Cooling Technology: Switches automatically between three cooling modes – active, eco, and emergency – based on real-time needs of the system for enhanced energy efficiency and added protection against static buildup and overheating.
· More space: Offers the greatest capacity within our Commercial (C-Series) EcoStruxure Micro Data Center line – up to 36U useable space.
· Suitable for indoor, commercial environments: Withstands the challenges of dust, power fluctuations, moderate temperature changes, and unsecure locations that are not purpose-built for sensitive IT equipment.
