Space in micro data centers is limited and must be carefully managed. Compute and storage are typically the priority, so cooling, uninterruptible power supplies, batteries, security, and fire protection must all compete for whatever space is left. A new white paper from Viking Integrated Safety outlines the company’s 1U stand-alone fire protection solution.

Micro data centers, which are fully integrated physical infrastructure solutions, are poised to meet the demand for compute-intensive applications at the edge such as artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT). But space in micro data centers is limited and must be carefully managed. Compute and storage are typically the priority, so cooling, uninterruptible power supplies, batteries, security, and fire protection must all compete for whatever space is left.

A new white paper from Viking Integrated Safety outlines the company’s fire protection solution. Viking’s OneU stand-alone system provides sensitive smoke detection, residue-free extinguishing and is only 1 rack unit (44 millimeters). It can be used in micro and modular data centers, server and network cabinets, remote telecommunications switching installations, and in production controls in manufacturing and industrial environments. The paper explains OneU’s aspirating smoke detector module, the extinguishing model, and its power supply and control system.

The paper also explores optional expansion units available for the OneU fire protection system. Technical features of all OneU systems are provided.
