SwitchAir® Cooling

SwitchAir® Cooling

Active SwitchAir Cooling

Network switches, load balancers and routers are often mounted in the back of the cabinet for more convenient cabling connections. Unfortunately, these switches installed at the back of the rack can be critically damaged when they are cooled with pre-heated air from the servers.

Patent pending Geist Cool Active SwitchAir® addresses this issue by delivering cool air to network devices regardless of where they are mounted. The device cooling products are available in a wide range of configurations and rack space sizes.

Designed to work with 1U to 9U devices and beyond, Geist Cool SwitchAir channels air to every kind of intake/exhaust configuration imaginable.

If you have a device that is not listed in the chart please do not hesitate to contact us, as we can customize SwitchAir units to fit your device, at or near to the same price as our standard units. Geist's manufacturing model is built around lean manufacturing, so to us customization is simply an inexpensive extension of that process.

Passive Switch Cooling

Geist Cool Passive SwitchAir guides cool air to network switches mounted in the rack without fans. The economical solution is ideal for low density environments where heat intensity is modest but still remains a threat.
