12,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioning Unit with Network Management Support
This air conditioning unit solves cooling problems where it isn't practical, efficient or affordable to install or expand computer room air conditioning (CRAC) or HVAC capacity. When IT equipment is installed in an improvised space or new equipment overwhelms existing cooling systems, additional cooling is required to ensure reliable performance and prevent damage. This air conditioning unit provides the cooling capacity to solve heat-related problems without requiring a major capital expenditure, a disruptive construction project, installation assistance from costly specialists or time-consuming maintenance. It's ideal for sectors like education and small/medium business, where budgets are tight and purpose-built IT spaces are a luxury.
This air conditioning unit can cool a rack enclosure, a hot spot or a small room. It also dehumidifies and filters the air.
Cool a Rack Enclosure or Hot Spot:
The 6 feet. (1.8 meter) flexible cooling duct directs cold air where it's needed most. If you connect the cooling duct near the top of a rack enclosure door, cold air sinks for even temperature distribution. You can also cool a hot spot, such as an overheating server, blade chassis or PoE switch, by connecting the cooling duct to the air intake.
Cool a Small Room:
The louvered cooling vent provides general area cooling for a small room (up to 500 square feet), such as a network closet, server room or MDF (main distribution frame). This is especially useful for rooms that lack adequate built-in cooling, a common problem in spaces that were not originally designed to house IT equipment.
Unattended Operation and Optional Network Management
Loaded with IT-friendly features that allow it to operate for extended periods without user intervention, this air conditioning unit is ideal for remote installations and other low-maintenance applications. After you plug it in and turn it on, you can focus on other tasks without interruption while it keeps things cool. The built-in evaporator prevents condensation from accumulating, which means that you never need to empty a water collection tank. If there's a power failure, the unit restarts automatically with its most recent settings, so you don't need to make a site visit to get things running again. You can also set the unit to turn on and off automatically. And if you want to keep a closer eye on cooling, the optional SRCOOLNET network management module allows you to monitor and control every aspect of the unit's operation from any location without leaving your desk.
There are two ways to manage this air conditioning unit:
1) Use the push-button control panel, LEDs and digital display to change settings, automate operation and monitor temperature locally.
2) Add the optional SRCOOLNET network management module to monitor temperatures, change settings, define threshold warnings, receive alerts, access logs and automate operation over the network via SNMP, Web, SSH or telnet. Using Tripp Lite's free PowerAlert NMS software, you can manage multiple air conditioning units from a central location and single interface. The SRCOOLNET also includes an ENVIROSENSE temperature, humidity and dry contact sensor. The sensor allows cooling operation to be based on temperature readings up to 12 feet away from the air conditioning unit, providing more precise cooling control.
Close-Coupled Cooling and Engineered for IT Environments
Installing air conditioning units closer to heat sources reduces distances required for delivery of cold air and removal of hot air, using less electricity to power fans. Close-coupled cooling also focuses cold air where it's actually needed instead of wasting energy to cool the entire room when that isn't the goal. This makes close-coupled air conditioning units more efficient than air conditioners installed at the room's perimeter or outside the room entirely, saving energy and reducing operating costs. Because close-coupled cooling is modular, it also allows you to reconfigure cooling on the fly to handle new equipment or newly detected hot spots.
The difference between consumer-grade air conditioners and SmartRack cooling solutions is like the difference between home computers and purpose-built servers. Although it may be possible to install server software on a home computer, it will never have the convenience, manageability, performance and resilience required for a high-availability IT environment.
Tripp Lite has engineered SmartRack cooling solutions from the ground up to meet the rigorous requirements of IT environments. Since the introduction of the award-winning SRCOOL12K, Tripp Lite has also used customer feedback and extensive IT application testing – both in the field and the lab – to improve SmartRack cooling solutions in every aspect from internal design to external packaging.
Plug-and-Play Installation, Environmentally Responsible and Dependable Service
This air conditioning unit can be installed by almost anyone almost anywhere, without the assistance of an electrician or HVAC specialist. It rolls into place on four built-in casters and plugs into a standard 15-amp outlet. The compact 12 x 20 inches (30 x 50.5 centimeter) footprint squeezes into tight spaces like network closets. The unit is completely self-contained and a built-in evaporator prevents condensation from accumulating, so it does not require an external condenser, refrigerant piping, floor drain or water collection tank. It ships with all the parts required for installation, including a window/ceiling exhaust kit.
Environmentally Responsible Design:
Ozone-Safe Refrigerant: This air conditioning unit's R410A refrigerant complies with environmental standards worldwide and does not contribute to ozone layer depletion.
Close-Coupled Cooling: Close-coupled cooling systems are more efficient than traditional perimeter cooling systems. Close-coupled cooling helps you save money, save energy, reduce carbon emissions and protect the environment.
RoHS Compliance: This product complies with the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) Directive, which limits the use of hazardous substances in manufacturing.
Service and Support:
1-Year Product Warranty: If this product proves defective in material or workmanship within that period, Tripp Lite will repair or replace it at no charge.

The mfg. is a well known company and the set up was really easy. And the cost ($650 range) was way below the next level cooling unit. We orderd the unit through Amazon (who knew after all the special web sites I went to) and it was there in 3 days. Great vendor follow up also.
What this picture shows is the broken fan blades sitting at the bottom of the exhaust chute.
After reading other reviews here, apparently Tripp-Lite does not sell replacement parts for this unit.
I almost purchased another consumer unit, but I ended up with the Tripp Lite SRCOOL12K for a couple reasons.
1. The cool air duct for spot cooling
2. I plan to use it in either a dedicated equipment room or garage in next house, and this unit seemed more suited for those environments.
- Unit looks good and blends in well with modern office equipment
- I like the orientation of unit and placement of the cool air vent and exhaust hose.
- Dual air filters are great. My old LG unit only had a single air filter, and the inner radiator would always need a lot of cleaning at the end of the season. I have a feeling this Tripp Lite unit will be lower maintenance.
- VERY powerful cooling. My LG unit was also 12000 BTU, but this Tripp Lite feels much more powerful. It seemed to cool down my office in half the time, and the spot cooling has enough air flow that it could double as a weed blower.
- Lack of remote control is a bummer. Especially given the way the fan works see below)
- The unit is VERY loud!Read more ›
This is one high output portable a/c unit. Has an easy to read thermostat, easy to program and has reusable filters. The accessories included were a nice touch, you can either use it to cool the server room down or use the included duct and deliver the cold air directly to the hotspots in your server room. Also the fact that there is no water collection tray is a breath of fresh air. It has a built in evaporator that removed the condensation and expels it with the hot air off the compressor.
It can be a pain in the you know what to route the exhaust air out of the room, it comes with a plate for using in either a suspended ceiling or window but my server room has none of these so we had to get a little creative with the exhaust routing.
If your server room is have issues staying cool and you dont want to spend your budget on new hvac equipment get this, before in the summers the server room would stay around 76F now with this installed not only does it stay at 72f but the main unit doesnt have to work as hard and that will save your company a few bucks on the electric bill.
Ridiculously on my part, I have now had four "samples" none has managed to outlive 6 months. The first worked fine for a week and then started making noise and excess vibration. On this one I actually took time to open and try to locate the source of this without success. Two weeks later it stopped making any sound other than basic fan noise. There was no cooled air produced. The compressor froze up after three weeks total operation. (I had a Carrier window unit freeze up this way but that was after more than 10 years of use.)
So we called Amazon who said, fine, ship it back we will place a replacement order. This unit was the one that "worked" it finished the summer. Summer is when we have problems. It restarted this summer (2014) and then began elaborate loud noise ending in the complete stripping of the exhaust rotary fan (plastic that is clearly not glued together to resist ordinary heat of the machine). Well so, Amazon suggested a refund since the order was just outside the "year-long" A-Z guarantee. but these months when the second unit worked seemed good to provide cooling to the machines, (computer, printer, large monitor, all of which needed additional cooling), so I told them that I would talk to the seller - Tripplite. Tripplite agreed to send a new (third) unit which arrived and never worked, never managed to start compressing air. Tripplite agreed again to replace this unit. So the fourth unit arrived (all running the clock way beyond the Amazon guarantee). This unit worked but began making a great deal of noise and vibration, by now I knew to check the look of the exhaust fan - which was erratic in fact, visibly changing speed.Read more ›
