About Cooling System Control

This section describes the basic functions of a cooling system.


The Cooling System function option is not displayed in the main menu by default. To display it in the main menu, you need to enable the function in the eSight Infrastructure Management Maintenance Tool. For details, see eSight Infrastructure Manager Menu Settings in the eSight Product Documentation.

Function Description

You can design a logical topology for the cooling system in an equipment room, and then obtain data, such as the status, alarms, and attributes, related to objects and counters included in the design through specified relationships to manage the cooling system. You can also analyze the running status of and alarms related to cooling devices to ensure continuous cooling in the equipment room.

    Table 21-8 Properties of a cooling device



    Control name

    Indicates the name of the device.

    Measurement object

    Indicates the device to be measured. You can select any device among all management domains.

    • Ball valve and three-way valve: bound to the switches on the valves of cooling towers, chiller units, chillers, heat exchangers, headers, pumps, LCUs, or air conditioning hosts.
    • Cooling tower, chiller, heat exchanger, header, pump, and LCU: bound to their corresponding physical devices.
    • Cooling gauge, pressure gauge, flow gauge, and temperature gauge: bound to their corresponding physical devices if such devices are configured, and bound to cooling towers, chiller units, chillers, heat exchangers, headers, water pumps, LCUs, air conditioning hosts, or cooling gauges if such devices are not configured.
    • Plate Heat Exchanger: bound to the chiller.

    The eSight Infrastructure Manager binds certain measurement counters to each measurement object by default. You can configure these counters on the Template Configuration page. For details, see Template Configuration. After you bind measurement counters to a cooling device, you can move the cursor to the device to check the values of all the measurement counters bound to the device.


    Click . In the displayed Select Data dialog box, select a measurement object in the left area and measurement counters in the right area, and then click OK.

    You can bind a maximum of 15 measurement counters to a measurement object.

    Measurement counter

    Bound alarm

    Indicates alarms bound to a cooling device. You can check the real-time alarms of the measurement object corresponding to the device.

    You can bind alarms to a measurement object only after you bind measurement counters to the measurement object. When an alarm with the highest severity is generated in the bound alarm counter, the icon is displayed in the color of the corresponding alarm.

    Click . In the displayed Select Data dialog box, select alarms you want to bind, and click OK.

    You can bind a maximum of 20 alarms to a measurement object.

    Operating State

    You can control the valve switch and the water flow state after binding this counter.


    Click . The Select Data dialog box is displayed. Select the operating status counter to be bound and click OK.

    Operating State can be set for the following controls:

    Ball Valve, Three-way Valve, Chiller Unit, Chiller, Pump and Plate Heat Exchanger.


    The values of X and Y ranges from 0 to 5000.

    Display name

    Select Display name. The control name is displayed under the control.

    After selecting Display name, you can set Border, Font, Text background, Transparency, and Offset of the control name.

    Rotation angle

    You can rotate a control by 0, 90, 180, or 270 degrees.

  6. Select pipeline controls in the Pipeline component based on the cooling pipeline diagram of the equipment room to connect the component.

    Table 21-9 Descriptions of pipeline controls




    Various pipelines are provided for connecting cooling devices.


    When you drag a pipeline control to a point near the connection of two cooling devices, the point can be used for the connection if a small square is displayed. Otherwise, the point cannot be used.

    To place a pipeline vertically, you need to perform the following operations:
    1. Move the cursor to one end of the pipeline.
    2. When the cursor turns cross-shaped, hold down the left mouse button to drag the end towards the other end of the pipeline until the pipeline becomes a point.
    3. Continue holding down the left mouse button, and then drag the point upwards or downwards.

    Select the pipeline. In the Properties column on the right, select Line width and Color of the pipeline. The width of the branch pipeline ranges from 5 to 15 and that of the main pipeline ranges from 10 to 20.

    text Used for entering text descriptions. In the Properties area, you can set properties, such as Text style, Font and Text background, for the text control.

    Navigation Control

    Used for identifying the water flow status in the pipe, including whether there is water and the water flow direction.

    • Select the navigation control in the design area and click in the Properties area. In the displayed Select Data dialog box, select the counters to be measured and click OK.
    • Set or manually enter Open Status and Close Status. When the counter value is the value of Open Status, the control displays the water flow status, which indicates that these is water flow. When the counter value is the value of Close Status, the control displays the static status, which indicates that there is no water flow.
    • Reconfigure Location and Size of the direction control and set Navigation of the control.
    • Select Display name as required.

    • Cooling tower: drain pan temperature of the cooling tower
    • Cooling pump and chilled pump: switch status
    Measurement counter

    Used for binding device counters in the management domain and displaying them in the unit of one counter control. You can bind only one counter.

    Method: Select the measurement counter control in the design area and click in the Properties area. In the displayed Select Data dialog box, select the counter to be measured and click OK.

    When you check the view, device running status is displayed by bound measurement counter.

  7. After selecting the counters, bind Detector in the control column to the corresponding control, for example, drag Cooling to the cooling capacity measuring instrument. This helps manage the cooling capacity by category during the power consumption analysis and display the cooling capacity in real time.

    Table 21-11 Descriptions detector controls




    You can bind detectors to devices, such as sensors, cold meters, mano meters, and thermo meters. Detectors are classified into flow detectors, temperature detectors, differential pressure detectors, pressure detectors, liquid level detectors, and cooling detectors. Before you create a specific type of detector, you must add a device of the same type to the edit area. For example, if you want to create a flow detector, you must bind a device of the flow type to the edit area.
    1. Drag a detector control to a sensor and release the left mouse button.
    2. In the right Properties area, modify the values of Control name and Location for the detector.

  8. Set cooling counters. For detailed operations, see Configuring PUE Counters.
