Polaris S-Series Ducted Chimney Cabinet

Polaris S-Series Ducted Chimney Cabinet

The Polaris S-Series Ducted Chimney Cabinet is a value engineered, multi-purpose enclosure system designed to support overhead air plenum cooling. The Polaris chimney prevents re-circulation of hot exhaust air by channeling hot air directly into the return air plenum. The elimination of cold/hot air mixing maximizes the efficiency and increases the capacity of the data center cooling system. Industry studies have shown this approach has a dramatic impact on the energy budget.

The Polaris S-Series Ducted Chimney Cabinet is designed for maximum adaptability. It can be configured to meet just about any high density application. The Polaris S-Series Ducted Chimney Cabinet is built on an AFCO Systems “S Series” frame; a four post, fully welded construction that supports up to 51RU of usable mounting space. Choose from three available widths: 24”, 30” or 31.5” and two depth options 42” or 48”. Standard configuration includes two pair of mounting rails (L Rails for 24” W, U Rails for 30” and 31.5”), Radius Front Door, and Flat Sealed Rear Door.
