DirectPerf 25%

Improve efficiency and capacity

Tate’s DirectPerf Panel uses patent pending technology to angle air towards equipment, achieving an impressive 93% Capture Index. This means 93% of the airflow delivered through the airflow panel is entering the face of the server rack, providing more capacity and energy efficiency than any other perforated airflow panel on the market with a 25% open area. Standard perf panels only achieve 30%-50% Capture Index, allowing the Directional Perf to double a traditional perf’s cooling capacity using the same amount of air.

Key Performance Characteristics

  • 25% open area delivers 765CFM @ .1” H2O when installed without a damper
  • Directional air flow achieves a 93% Capture Index
  • Cools up to 6kW per rack at 0.10" H2O
  • Reduces capital expenditures on cooling infrastructure by 40%
  • Over 40% annual fan energy savings
  • Easily integrates into an existing 24inch raised floor system

DirectPerf 25%

Increase Energy Efficiency and Maximize Cooling Capacity

The DirectPerf has been designed to meet the cooling requirements typically associated with high air volume grate panels while still supplying the same air volume as a standard perforated panel. With the ability to cool twice the capacity of a standard panel, directional perfs can improve a facilities overall cooling capacity allowing for the addition of IT equipment without the capital investments on infrastructure.

Eliminate Waste and Improve Data Center Financial Performance

With a 93% Capture Index, wasteful by-pass airflow is virtually eliminated. The precise delivery of air to the face of the rack reduces by-pass air allowing new facilities to in-turn reduce the number of CRAH units.
