Hi, do we still consider 85% as the recommended upper limit in the data centre with regards to power & cooling. I know this was a main driver from Gartner, but with increased efficiencies in M&E hardware has this view changed at all towards a higher recommended set point?

 

Thanks, Joe Campbell

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m personally uncomfortable with an RH setpoint above 85%. Temperatures in a data center are never completely uniform; the temperature somewhere is likely to be cooler than at the RH sensor location, and close to or below the dewpoint. This means you could have condensation somewhere and resulting mold and/or corrosion issues.
