SRCOOL12K Portable Air Conditioning Unit
Tripp Lite’s SRCOOL12K is a new-generation air conditioner designed for supplemental area cooling, emergency cooling and off-hour cooling applications. Efficient, compact, self-contained and portable, the 120V, 60 Hz SRCOOL12K is ideal for use in data centers, server and wiring closets, IT environments, home and small business offices, conference rooms, warehouses, entertainment centers or other venues with heat-sensitive equipment, particularly in areas that facility air conditioning can’t reach. The SRCOOL12K not only adjusts ambient room temperatures, but can also dehumidify and filter the air, providing better air quality for enhanced equipment performance with minimal noise and power consumption. The SRCOOL12K uses environmentally friendly R410a Freon, which complies with EPA standards for 2010 and beyond, and is accepted worldwide.

Designed for quick, simple installation, the SRCOOL12K plugs into a standard 5-15R outlet with no adapter required. Both a standard louvered vent (for general room cooling) and a directional ducted cooling vent (to direct cold air where most needed) are provided. A directional exhaust duct safely removes hot air from the room. The built-in dehumidifier expels condensed water through the exhaust duct, with no need for a drain tube, drain pan or water collection tank.

The SRCOOL12K meets the needs of the most demanding applications with 12,000 BTU of cooling power. A built-in timer enables the unit to be programmed for unattended startup and shutdown. Controls and displays are conveniently mounted on the top panel. An included window/drop ceiling kit provides multiple installation options.

Key Features
•Compact, portable, self-contained design; ideal for IT, industrial, commercial and similar applications

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Failed after 10 monthsGreat price but failing less than 1 year is unacceptable. Hopefully the replacement unit lasts longer. I realize some will fail early while others may last years. Crossing my fingers and installing a temp controlled vent fan for the small server room that this unit cools in case of failure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a small data roomWe're in a 100 year old building that we (hope) will be moving out of in the next 2 years so we've been cooling our two racks of servers and switches with similar units that we got from Lowe's. They would last about a year or so, and we needed three to keep the machines happy. When two of them died on schedule we saw that Tripp Lite made a version and jumped on them and couldn't be happier. The two do the job that three did before and better, down 10F from what we had before. Now that summer weather is here we're replacing the last old unit for another Tripp Lite just so we have back-up and to keep the server room the nicest place to be in the summer.These are designed for a server room, just like all Tripp Lite products. Big LED intake temp display, easy to understand buttons. Well worth the cost if you can't put in a real cooling system or just need to cool down a hot spot in the racks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't overloadThis unit works very well indeed, but if the room you're trying to cool is too large or too hot, the unit might shutdown. If it cannot dissipate enough heat through the exhaust tube, it will stop cooling. There's a limit to what 12k can cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep Stuff CoolAfter struggling to keep our 8x4 server room cool (even when below freezing outside) we did our research and ended up with a SRCOOL12K and have never looked back. We have had it operational since 7/12 and it has been keeping our room at a nominal 68-70 degrees around the clock with no intervention whatsoever. Highly recommend if you need cooling in a small server room. Easy setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SRCOOL12kWe purchased this portable unit as a supplemental A/C to our small Data Center's main unit. As we grew we realized we had out grown the cooling capacity of our main above ceiling mounted Leibert unit. This was the perfect unit to keep our DC cool during the summer months.It was really easy to setup and really does a great job of supplementing our main unit. It's quiet and programmable so that it's not cooling when not needed. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a portable AC solution. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a huge difference in temperature & humidity!I share my office with the servers -- the space constraints of a small Library are handled this way -- so it stays pretty warm & humid. Located in a building built in 1937, insulation was never considered and IT needs are an afterthought, so this A/C unit fits the bill perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficient little coolerI use this for auxiliary cooling for a server / network rack. Pulls much more moisture from the air than my previous AC unit from another manufacturer and at a significantly smaller footprint as well. Very impressed with the unit so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed!It seems like we have the air conditioning go out about once a month and it usually takes two days or longer to get it working again. This Tripp-Lite Portable Air Conditioning keeps my computer room temperature where it needs to be and saves the servers! It's easy to use and operate. I now leave it running all weekend when I am not here to monitor the temp in the computer room. I HIGHLY recommend this unit and I wish I had gotten it two years ago!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small business awsomesauseWe wish we purchased this sooner.... We invested a lot of time and effort on modifying our HVAC to draw air from our server closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 12K CoolingI have had the unit running for a week now, very nice unit, quiet and compact design. It cools our small server closet to 70 with no issues. The digital read out is not a temp gauge, it stays at what you set it at, I had to place additional thermometer in the room to see what temp we are really at.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for the cost. Nice for small network closets.We've had this running in a wiring closet with a Cisco 4507 and some other smaller Cisco gear. Was an easy installation and haven't really had any issues. When we first brought it online we didn't have the drain plug in all the way so we had water on the floor but after pushing that in all the way the condensate just gets pushed out with the exhaust air. Thinking about getting its big brother for a small server room in a place that won't work for a split system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Self-Contained Air Conditioning Unit Ever!You gotta love Tripp Lite! It is hot now in California... Who would have thought? I worked for Tripp Lite for many years, was so excited when we got this product because every single customer I brought this to wanted to keep this, they tried it out, bought them for every single MDF and IDF locations they could... and then they ended up buying more. Now I am recommending this product for people in condominium type complexes where the the association won't allow interior/exterior a/c units. This is fully self contained, comes on rollers... what the heck else could you ask for?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backup AC in our data centerWe bought 2 of these units to act as a backup to our data center when the main unit freezes (mainly in the winter). I really like that these units don't require a condensate drain. That made installing them really easy. I will likely buy another 1-2 for our offsite data center.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product backed by great supportUn-boxed and running in 30 minutes. Like many that have posted reviews here, our "server" room was really not designed to house lots of heat-generating equipment.Prior to the Tripplite AC, the server room would hit 88 degrees on any given day. We set the set point at 72 and the AC has been running fine.We are still trying to get the SRCOOLNET configured. Implementing that has not been as straightforward as the AC was.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy so far!We use it in a 7x7 enclosed room with 5 servers in it. There is also a pc, battery backup, and a switchboard in the room. It was easy to install. The included vent kit goes neatly up into the drop ceiling without issue. It has been running like a champ since it was installed. Have had running about 9 months so longevity is to be determined. Very pleased with the product so far. Easily keeps the room at our set point of 76F; even through the hot summer when the room was extra hot. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works greatGot it yesterday and used it only for a day in our server room, but I am impressed with its cooling power, relatively low noise, professionally looking device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Works like a champ!We've tried several spot coolers over time, some residential grade and some commercial grade from reputable reseller chains. We use it to cool down a small computer room (one server rack and one neworking devices rack).Installing and operating this device is simple and sraight forward. It's been working for a year now non-stop and we've had no problem with it whatsoever.Greatly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UnreliableWorked for about 30 hours of non-continuous use, then the compressor failed. Tech support was friendly, but can offer only replacement, not refund. Replacement requires the buyer to haul the new unit around, pack up the old unit and arrange for return shipping (paid for by Tripp Lite). This has cost me a lot of time and trouble and I'm very dissatisfied with this product. Plus, Tripp Lite deleted my negative but honest review on their own website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost GreatI have a small server room that was running very hot in the middle of a building. Closet was heated by 7 physical servers EMC san and all the trimmings. The room with door open and fans running would easy top 90.This little cooler will drop it to low 70's in a short period of time. That being said the vent attachments may as well be pitched as they are totally useless. Biggest problem is you have thin plastic flex tubing that connects to ceiling mount that will not stay together. And tubing screws into back of the cooler. Well the minute you turn it on and it starts to heat up it will not stay connected. About a half pound of gator tape later and it seems to be holding.I have only run the cooler for a couple of days and so far so good but I can't really speak on reliability. I will find out soon as this will run 24x7. Overall, it does its job but an addition 5 minutes of thinking could have made the venting situation much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well for our needsI have an enclosed office that has 2 air inlets, six sets of florescent lights, and no air return in a building built in 1937. There is no insulation, the thermostat for the entire floor is located outside my office, and there is a 12" drop ceiling. With the 2 servers, 2 UPS units, five PCs, networking equipment and a laser printer in the room, it gets very hot, humid & stuffy in here. This unit is set at 69¡F and is vented into the ceiling for now, and let me tell you, it has made all the difference in the cooling needs of this room and its equipment! The servers no longer scream when the outdoor temperature rises above 90.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My SRCOOL12K was just what I needed for my recording studio.I needed a cooling solution for my studio to keep my studio recording equipment cool and at the proper temperature during the hot months here in AZ. I also needed something that would make me feel better about not introducing any dust from outside into my studio. And thenÃ?.. I found out about the TrippLite SRCOOL12K and after reading all about it believed I finally had found just what I needed to meet my needs and now that I've finally received it and installed it and my SRCOOL12K has turned out to be just that. It cools really fast and also filters the air to keep all my audio recording gear in my studio from even indoor dust and particles and I am very pleased that I made this purchase and I highly recommend it to others who have the same need and want to keep your expensive electronics cool, clean, and safe. Of course, I shut it off when I'm going to record vocals and audio with my studio microphone because everything has to be quiet, and I cool the room down real good first before I shut it off. But other than that, I run it when I writing and making my music. The SRCOOL12K is a great solution for me and my studio and I'm relieved. :) - CALEB -

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be Wary of Poor QualityJust after one year warranty expired, several of the blades in the cheaply designed and built light plastic fan broke off, causing it to be out of balance and therefore severely vibrate. Contacted Tripp-Lite to replace the fan and they do NOT sell replacement parts for this! Several on-line reviewers experienced this exact same issue.
