Understand the updates to globally accepted ASHRAE standard for thermal control and hear insights into best practice design for Data Centre Cooling.

Understanding and adhering to American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) standards and guidelines for thermal control is essential for the prevention of overheating and best-practice system design.

This webinar will provide participants with an ASHRAE update and the framework for Data Centre Cooling. Gain an understanding of system design examples for deploying Cooling at the Edge, through to Hyper Scale Data Centre Cooling.

The webinar will complement existing mechanical engineering expertise, enhance Cooling system design skills and ensure Cooling system design reliability and sustainability; it will provide engineers with the set of skills that will enable them to interact with clients at all organisational levels.

This course is delivered in partnership with Schneider Electric:
