Mitsubishi Electric has launched its first packaged computer room air conditioning (CRAC) unit.

The manufacturer is keen to extend its IT cooling offering with the new s-MEXT high precision systems, which connect directly to Mitsubishi Electric’s DX Mr Slim Power Inverter outdoor units to create a full inverter split system. 
The s-MEXT is the first Mitsubishi Electric Hydronics & IT Cooling Systems (MEHITS) product certified with the company’s 3 diamonds, taking advantage of more than 50 years of experience of the RC brand within the IT cooling market.

Richard Venga, senior product manager at Mitsubishi Electric, said: “By using our Mr Slim Power Inverter system, our installers are already familiar with not only the system but with the installation process. Therefore, the s-MEXT can be installed quickly and efficiently, without the need to go through time-intensive training. It also means that the Mitsubishi Electric quality is assured as we roll out our first three diamonds-certified IT cooling product. We are excited to be offering the market a product that is familiar, flexible and reliable.”

The units are available in capacities from 6kW up to 42kW and are aimed at applications where high sensible cooling and close control of temperature and humidity are required, such as small and medium sized businesses (enterprise data centres) with IT cooling requirements. They are also available in both upflow and downflow variants.

The units are said to offer high levels of efficiency, with full inverter technology and EC plug fans. Occupying a small physical footprint and with pipe runs up to 100m, Mitsubishi Electric says this makes the s-MEXT a flexible solution for IT cooling needs. 

The s-MEXT includes Mitsubishi Electric’s standard three-year warranty and more information is available here.
