Chatsworth Products Inc. (CPI) opened a new research development and training (RD&T) centre that allows visitors to learn about—and interact with—CPI products and solutions.

The
centre includes a thermal test lab for modelling various heat loads and
cabinet configurations, and a product test lab. Located in Georgetown,
Texas—adjacent to one of CPI’s manufacturing and office sites—the
10,200-sf facility provides a fully equipped training centre, product
showroom and customer meeting centre.




The
RD&T centre’s configurable thermal test lab allows CPI to model
real-world data centre issues, and includes access, slab and shared
floor environments, a drop ceiling return plenum, two rows of eight
cabinets each and two Stulz CCD-300-CWE CRAC units. To achieve accurate
test results, the lab contains load simulators that can be positioned
within the cabinets to mimic different types of servers.
