Real Estate Description
Areas include the mezzanine, raised floor, and building exterior. DC2 was built in two phases.
The electrical system is an Isolated Redundant system consisting of 5 primary bus. Primary bus has twelve 375kVA MGE UPS (300kW output). Redundant UPS consists of 500kVA MGE UPS in parallel. There are a total of five 500kVA MGE UPS providing redundancy for the primary UPS. Generation is configured with five 1250kW CAT diesel generators in parallel.
RTU provides cooling to the hosting space. The roof top units feed common ring headers to provide redundant cooling in case of a unit failure. RTUs include economizers and VFDs. Cooling is overhead only. Separate makeup air units provide conditioned air for the hosting space.
Leading telcos provide fiber optics and copper cabling.
VESDA provides early warning detection. Dual interlock fire sprinkler system. Two initiating device inputs (an area heat detector and a loss of air pressure) are required to activate water. Under normal operation, sprinkler pipe contains no water.
Each generator has Each generator has a 2000 gallon belly tank. There are a total of 10,000 gallons of fuel capacity on site.
Building Monitoring System Description
Dimax provides monitoring and control for the HVAC systems; Dimax monitors critical electrical equipment.
Building grounding system exceeds NEC and IEEE standards. A separate zero reference ground system installed. Lightning protection system installed with separate ground.
