HVAC Systems

Thermal management is the key to a successful data center design. Reliable, scalable and highly efficient YORK® HVAC solutions include:

  • World-class chillers, including the fast-starting YORK® YZ Magnetic Bearing Centrifugal Chiller with up to 35% more efficiency than even our own world-class designs.
  • Fully customizable or standard YORK® air handling units (AHU) with industry-leading performance and unsurpassed scalability.
  • Free cooling options from water-side or air-side economizers that can be supplemented with mechanical chiller systems when free cooling is not an option.
  • Close control air conditioning units (CCU) with high availability and power usage effectiveness (PUE).
  • BlueStream thermosyphon hybrid cooling to reduce water consumption in traditional cooling tower systems 25-80% while maintaining peak process output and energy efficiency.

Controls, Building Automation and Building Management Systems

Simplified control, actionable data and increased efficiency are critical to modern data center building management. With over 25,000 site installations, Johnson Controls has the largest base of building management systems of any provider globally, including hundreds of installed data center solutions:

  • With secure, mobile access, our Metasys® building management system organizes data to help you control temperature and lighting, monitor system performance and optimize equipment energy use.
  • Alternatively, our legendary Facility Explorer® allows you to create a building automation system that’s as simple or as sophisticated as you need.
  • Johnson Controls Enterprise Management uses powerful analytics and cloud-based accessibility to turn data from our Metasys® building automation into actionable insights that can help reduce costs and identify negative performance trends weeks before they become issues.
  • Data center file integrity management (DCFIM) can help monitor and provide alerts when sensitive file systems are changed.
