Data center humidity is often an afterthought compared to temperature, but keeping it at the right level keeps computer components from failing, and energy from being wasted. Within the industry there is debate about the proper humidity range to ensure safety of data center equipment, as well as whether there exists better ways to measure humidity in the room besides the relative humidity reading.
In this paper, Dr. Bob Sullivan discusses relative humidity and if it's still relevant in the data center today, a better way to manage your computer room, and some best practices on how to improve the energy efficiency of your data center.
He'll also talk about electrostatic discharge or ESDportion of the humidity controller with three differing views:
- Electrostatic Discharge Association
- His field experience
- Hardware manufacturers' requirements
