Modelling rear door coolers (chillers)

We have new rear door rack chiller units being installed.  Our racks are 1200 deep and these units extend a further 300mm when mounted on the rear doors of the racks (they absorb the exhaust heat through chilled water extraction).  My question is how to model this in DCO.  I do not ask this from a point of view of modelling the cooling as we largely do not leverage that part of the model although if it could be made to work it might be worth it.

 

The way I see it - you could create a 1500mm rack and somehow mount the device inside the rack, the mounting options seem limited for this scenario though.

 

The other option is to clone a chiller genome and sit it directly behind the the racks mounted on the floor (similar in respect to an in-row) cooler unit.

 

Which approach (if either) is recommended?

 

Thanks

Re: Modelling rear door coolers (chillers)

Hi Nigel,

 

As you already have noticed/mentioned modeling such configuration is not directly supported (or possible), but similar to your workarounds I could think of the following options:

1- customize a cooler unit and place it behind the rack(s)

2- mount a device (such as patch panel) in racks Vertical u-positions (and give it a proper name)

3- use the racks custom properties settings to add the chiller/cooler' as property

 

Following image illustrating those 3 workarounds:

Equipment Browser may also display those 3 items from our workaround ('rear door rack chiller').

However, if you don't use/care about the cooling simulation, then I would prefer the first work-around. since it is closer to the real model plus, they may appear properly in the Inventory reports.
Here is also an illustration from 3D view:

Kind regards,
Jef
