Vertiv Launches New Line of Compact and Powerful Data Center Cooling Solutions for Edge and Small IT Rooms in Asia, Australia and New Zealand


Vertiv (NYSE: VRT), a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, today introduced the Vertiv™ Liebert® DM – its latest line of thermal management solutions designed for small and medium-sized computer rooms, IT closets and other edge applications. With capacity ranges from 7 to 27 kW, the Liebert DM is now available across Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.

Using an intelligent algorithm, the floor-mounted Liebert DM thermal management solution  provides enterprise-level cooling features to small computer rooms and network closets, to prevent overheating and downtime of IT equipment. It is designed to provide year-round temperature and humidity control for IT applications. In addition, the Liebert DM features a high sensible heat ratio (SHR) of greater than 0.9, making it ideal for cooling IT environments versus standard comfort cooling solutions.

The Liebert DM series is a compact and sensible cooling solution for mission-critical applications such as small IT rooms and edge computing infrastructure in the fields of banking, healthcare, government, transport and energy. This solution is ideal for those that require efficient, reliable and sensible equipment cooling, round-the-clock operation and precise internal environment The Liebert DM can also support battery rooms, and control rooms in industrial and manufacturing applications.

Users have the option to connect up to four units of the Liebert DM series in a single network. With automatic rotation features, multiple Liebert DM units can be installed, configured and synced to ensure optimal management of heat loads in most  IT environments. For example, a customer may opt to install four Liebert DM units in a computer room, and program them to run in a cycle and according to schedule, ensuring equal load distribution and greater efficiency. In addition, built-in emergency features in the Liebert DM will automatically detect any failure, triggering an alarm for immediate action, thus ensuring sufficient cooling.

The Liebert® DM is equipped with user-friendly controls for ease of use, including a 7-inch touchscreen color display as well as real-time, graphical display of return air temperature and relative humidity. The Liebert DM also has built-in intelligent features for added protection, including a three-level password protection and email and SMS notification for remote monitoring functions.

“Many of today’s businesses rely on sophisticated IT processors to enable digital applications in their day-to-day operations. Any failure in these delicate components can lead to potential breakdown and failure, which can have disastrous results. That’s why for these applications, using precision cooling versus comfort cooling is recommended for optimal operation of the IT equipment. The Liebert DM is ideal in this scenario because of its highly efficient and energy-saving features that provide the best cooling versus traditional means,” said Preetam Shah, director for product offering and management for edge thermal solutions, Vertiv Asia & India.
