ATCA-Compliant Air Filters Improve Blade Server Performance and ReliabilityMonday, August 20th, 2007
Universal Air Filters help mechanical engineers overcome two of their most pressing challenges – improving heat dissipation and achieving ATCA compliance. UAF’s Blade ServerAir Filters are flame retardant, low pressure-drop, low and ultra-low profile framed air filter assemblies that are ideal for use in server applications where space is limited. Blade Server Air Filters help designers dissipate damaging heat and meet stringent ATCA requirements, and they can be configured to includeEMI shielding as well. Blade Server Air Filters are also perfectly suited to perform in harsh environments because they complement the overall quality and heavy-duty designs of server enclosures, unlike off-the-shelf air filters.
To eliminate the need to design the enclosure around the filter, UAF provides intensive design and 3-D CAD support for filtration products that are complaint with industry standards, providing more air filter design options that will complement the enclosure design. This service makes the designer’s job easier and gets the products through testing faster. In addition, OEM production operations will enjoy cost savings driven by improved filter installation and assembly efficiency.
Universal Air Filter has an impressive track record in rack mount, telco, and enterprise server applications, and offers a free prototype service to design engineers worldwide at www.uaf.com. An Internet-submitted prototype request, quick phone call, fax or e-mail is all it takes to get the process started. The free prototype is then produced and shipped within five working days.
Universal Air Filter products meet the following standards and classifications: ATCA; UL 94 HF-1; UL 900; CE Telcordia NEBS GR-78-CORE and GR-63-CORE; micro TCA; ETSI; and are RoHS Compliant.
