APC EcoBreeze Air Economizer Cooling Solution
APC EcoBreeze Air Economizer Cooling Solution

EcoBreeze™ is a pre-engineered and tested product designed to meet the expanding requirements for data center efficiency. EcoBreeze provides multiple modes of economization to maximize energy efficiency during the year. Additionally, it can utilize a supplemental mechanical cooling circuit to maintain the data center cooling set point on the worst of ambient conditions. Available in a 20ft (6m) or a 40ft (12m) ISO frame, the modular design allows for scalability in 50kW increments up to 400kW of total cooling capacity. The intelligent controls and redundant components of EcoBreeze maintain reliability and availability during constantly changing ambient conditions.

Efficient and effective cooling

  • Right-sized cooling made possible by individual 50 kW modules that can be grouped up to a maximum of 200 kW and 400 kW of sensible cooling per frame
  • Fully adaptable cooling via EC fan technology
  • Efficient and effective cooling via total internal isolation of the IT airstream from the outdoor ambient airstream
  • Regulatory compliance with recommendations and requirements for economization and efficiency (e.g., ASHRAE 90.1 in North America).


  • Ability to address any cooling requirement worldwide via multiple module and frame voltages/frequencies
  • Adaptability via the integration of multiple cooling options in one module footprint: indirect evaporative, air-to-air heat exchange, and proportional direct expansion
  • Ability to control redundancy from the frame down to the individual module level

Flexible and easy installation and servicing

  • Flexible and cost-effective deployment since the unit uses zero white space within the data center
  • Easy installation because of a single point of connection for water, power, and communications
  • Adaptable installation because it can be deployed with raised or non-raised floor applications
  • Safe and easy capacity expansion and servicing via individual isolation of air, power, and communications between the frame and modules

Environmentally friendly

  • No chemical treatment required due to an on-board water treatment system
  • Environmentally friendly because of zero ozone-depleting proportional R410a refrigerant system

Features & Benefits

Total Cost of Ownership
Economization An efficient method of utilizing low outside air temperatures to assist in data center cooling.
Indirect Heat Exchange A polymer heat exchanger allows the data center and outside airstreams to remain separated, thereby preventing contamination and humidity influences to the data center airstream.
Zero White Space All cooling equipment is placed outside the data center, allowing for valuable white space to be fully utilized for IT equipment.
Variable speed fans Variable speed fans reduce energy consumption during off-peak cooling periods.
Supplemental Mechanical Cooling Provides extra capacity to augment economization, extending annual hours of energy savings.
Active response controls Monitors and actively adjusts cooling capacity to ensure proper server inlet temperatures. Through the microprocessor controller, visibility into the operation and health of the unit is provided.
Redundant Components Single points of failure in the system have redundant components to maintain availability and reliability.
Green Refrigerant Environmentally friendly refrigerant that can offer LEED points.
Pulse Powered Water Treatment System Eliminates the use of chemicals in the system, allowing the water to be re-used or drained without harming the environment.
Pre-engineered system Allows for fast design and installation
Scalable Design Modular design provides scalable solutions to add cooling as demand increases.
Operational Service Allows critical components to be maintained/replaced while the system is in operation.
Easy service access Allows for all serviceable components to be replaced/maintained by easily accessible panels/doors.
