I am very excited to announce that we began testing and collecting data last week for the Knurr Cool Therm single rack configuration! Since Thursday (5/28) we have been running through the various chilled water and server inlet air temp set points to verify there are no issues with the entire system (mechanical, electrical, Cool Therm unit, servers, and data collection/reporting system). All system components have been working as expected. Geoffrey returns Wednesday (6/3), at which point we will reset to to the initial test set point and begin collecting official study data on Thursday (6/4). We expect to wrap the Cool Therm test by 6/10 and move quickly to Knurr's Cool Loop next.
