Emerson Network Power (India) Pvt. Ltd. announced its interest in launching rack and enclosure solutions for the Indian market. Just recently Emerson has purchased Knurr AG of Munich, Germany, a provider of rack and enclosure technologies for the IT and Telecom industries.
The acquirement allowed Emerson Network Power India to provide cooling solutions at the room, rack and chip level. These solutions will be on shelves in the Indian market from March 2006.
Knurr’s broad platform of rack systems will incorporate with Emerson’s cooling and power management technologies, helping customers solve problems in new and existing installations and giving data center managers more flexibility in facility design.
In data centers, Emerson was first to market with cooling solutions for extreme density applications with its Liebert XD cooling platform. With the launch of rack-cooling solutions as part of its portfolio, Emerson Network Power now delivers the broadest portfolio of technologies – taking proven cooling technologies from room-level applications and integrating them into the rack,” said Sandeep Nair, Managing Director, Emerson Network Power (India) Pvt. Ltd.
“We strongly believe that these solutions, which will be targeted particularly at data centers and telecom sites, will help us further extend our leadership in the Enterprise segment,” added Nair.
The company said it aims become the leader in the Indian IT rack solutions market, which is at present estimated at Rs. 200 crores.
