The level of technology

Currently, there are many different air conditioning systems equipment, as well as controllers for air conditioning systems equipment.

The closest analogue to the air conditioning system is an air conditioning system that is described on the web page of the electronic version of the journal "climate World" No. 30 for the year 2005 (http://mir-klimata.apic.ru/archive/30/10 .html). This known system includes: a data network; air conditioning with control device and located in the same room with many of the cooled device controller; a memory connected to the transmission network and managing the air conditioner via the control device.

This system allows you to condense many of the cooled devices and has the ability to control via the data network, but does not allow you to control the temperature of each of the cooling devices and to adjust the capacity of the air conditioner depending on the operating mode of each of the cooling devices.

A detailed description of the preferred embodiments

Figure 1 shows a conventional block diagram of the system, which may be implemented in the present invention. The object 1, which is air-conditioned, equipped with a control device 2, for example a receiver of a signal from the infrared PU is to management. The control device 2 is connected via infrared channel 4 with the controller 3, which may be, for example, a personal computer with an infrared port. The controller 3 emulates the operation of the control unit of the air conditioner and an infrared communication channel 4 controls the air conditioner 1. The controller 3 is connected to the data network 5. To the same data network connected cooled with air conditioning 1 unit: 6, which is the server for which the operating temperature range is from 20 to 35°C; 7, which is an uninterruptible power supply with a working temperature range from 15 to 25°C; 8, which is the network switch with a working temperature range from 15 to 25°C. Each of the cooling device 6 has a built-in temperature sensor, the address in the data network 5 and the critical temperature of the work specified in the technical characteristics of the devices 6. In the memory controller 3 using the built-in graphical interface made for each of the cooling devices at least its address in the transmission network and the value of the critical temperature for the device 6 - 20, and 30°C, device 7 to 15 and 25 and devices 8 - 0 and 40°C. Then by querying SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) no the address of the cooled device, for example, the command get-request and the corresponding values from the MIB file (Manager Information Base) on lagdameo device, the controller receives from the cooling device temperature value of the cooling devices 6, 7 and 8, compares the received temperature value with the corresponding value of the critical temperature and by comparing decides to control the impact on the air conditioner 1. For example, intensive work uninterruptible power 7 led to an increase in its temperature up to 25°C. the air conditioner 1, the controller 3 transmits the command to lower the temperature of the cooled air. Air conditioner 1 is running at full capacity until such time as the server 6 is not reached the minimum critical temperature, and air conditioning 1 reduces the cooling power at the command of the controller 3. This ensures that the required temperature conditions for each of the units 6, 7 and 8. When using air conditioners with running air flow (as in a web page http://www.sm-service.ru/lg/feat.html possible more complex impact on the temperature of the cooled equipment
