The HotSpotr HT-510 is an under floor active air mover mounted beneath a perforated tile for a raised floor data center. Its purpose is to boost the amount of cooling air delivered to IT racks. Temperature sensors mounted at the top-intake-side of the racks monitor and control air delivery.
a. The HT-510 comes with a mounting kit that attaches to the stanchions under the raised floor, and should be used with a customer’s existing perforated tiles. We recommend perforated tiles of at least 50% open area to gain the full benefit of the HT-510.
b. The HT-510-T comes attached to the underside of a 56% open Tate® GrateAire® Tile, and does not require a separate mounting kit.

When the fans are at full speed, the HT-510 consumes 2 Amps @120V. However, the fans are typically running at between 30% and 50% speed and consume less than 1 Amp @120V. Put into the context of the server racks they cool, the HT-510 consumes approximately 2.5% of the power being consumed by the rack.
All North America market HotSpotrs come with a 6 foot power cord with a Ground Fault Circuit Interruption module at the end of the cord. There is a standard U.S. 120V 5-15 3-Pin grounded plug on the module.
The HT-510 can safely cool between 10 and 12 kilowatts per rack (assuming that the customer has enough cooling tonnage available in the data center to support the IT load).
The HT-510-T can be installed in a 6 inch (or deeper) raised floor as measured from the slab to the top of the raised floor.
No. We have conducted tests at various customer sites and we have never encountered a situation where we have starved adjacent racks of airflow. This is due to the thermostatically controlled VFD fans in the HT- 510. It will only draw enough air to maintain 77°F at the rack top intake and not waste cooling. Of course there needs to be enough total CRAC tonnage available to support the total IT load in the room.
At full speed, through a 56% Tate® GrateAire® tile, the HT-510 can supply 1200 CFM.
a. The HT-510 can fit into any raised floor that uses 24” (or 600 mm. ask for details) tiles.
b. Because it is supplied with a Tate® tile, the HT-510-T will fit into all Tate® compatible flooring systems. However, we also provide an adaptor kit that should allow the HT-510-T to also fit most non-Tate® flooring systems. The adaptor kit consists of spacer blocks attached to the supplied tile that insures proper fit with the surrounding tiles.
Yes. We also offer a more comprehensive solution for total Data Center cooling and energy savings – “Demand Based Cooling or DBC for short. During the installation of the DBC solution, any HT-510 or HT-510-T HotSpotrs that the customer has already purchased can be incorporated into the DBC solution.
a. The HT-510 box size is 24.5 inches x 25 inches x 7 inches, and its weight is 25 pounds.
b. The HT-510-T box size is 24.5 inches x 25 inches x 7 inches and its weight is 38 pounds
a. When installed and powered on, the HT-510 will sense and deliver enough cool air to bring rack and server temperatures under control in under 3 minutes.
b. Physical installation of the HT-510-T is 30 minutes or less with no special tools required. To find out more about the fastest and best way to eliminate data center hot spots click on button below.
