Knurr DCM

Everything in the data center begins with the Knürr DCM®!
A rack’s mission is supposedly easy: Every kind of IT component must be accepted; servers, storage elements, switches, cable management – and it must provide the most suitable physical environment at the same time. An environment that consists of the space, power supply and cooling as well as integration into the infrastructure management.

We know that no two data centers are the same. A customized solution adjusted to different requirements is a constant requirement.

The answer: a modular building box. It is fast to install, cost-effective and future-proof. Emerson Network Power provides optimized and harmonized standard components that can be selected, set up and changed as required; making the data center expandable.

Enter Knurr DCM. Standard modules for space, power, cooling and infrastructure management that are harmonized with one another in such a way that they remain freely combinable with one another and can be adjusted to every requirement.

All these elements provide “one common look and feel”: the energy-efficient SmartAisle™ from Emerson Network Power.
