The SRCOOL12K SmartRack 12,000 BTU 120V Portable Air Conditioning Unit pumps 12,000 BTU of cooling power into your IT environment to prevent shutdowns, malfunctions and failures caused by overheating or fluctuating temperatures. Part of the SRCOOL® line, this compact, portable unit is perfect for server rooms and other IT environments with heat-sensitive equipment in areas that facility air conditioning can't reach.
The self-contained SRCOOL12K is capable of cooling a small room up to 500 square feet using its louvered vent. A built-in evaporator expels the condensed water through the directional exhaust duct, eliminating the need for a drain tube, drain pan or water collection tank.
You can also use the included flexible tube to aim the cold air precisely where it's needed most, such as an overheated rack enclosure or an equipment hot spot. The SRCOOL12K also dehumidifies and filters the air, providing better air quality that can enhance equipment performance with little power consumption.
Designed for quick, simple installation, the SRCOOL12K rolls into place on durable built-in casters and plugs into a standard 15-amp outlet. It's programmed to restart automatically after power failures, and you can set the built-in timer for unattended shutdown and startup.
By installing the optional SRCOOLNET remote management accessory (sold separately), you can also monitor temperatures, receive alerts, review logs and control settings from anywhere via SNMP, web browser, SSH or telnet.

Question: what is the lowest temperature it gets
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. The lowest set-point for this unit is 63 degrees Fahrenheit. However, this is far different than the lowest temperature this unit can cool to.
When discussing portable air conditioners we typically talk in terms of cooling capacity, which is dependent on room size and heat-load to name just a few of the factors that impact the lowest achievable temperature.
This particular unit is rated to 12,000 BTU or around 3.5 kW and would be fine for smaller rooms, directed supplemental spot cooling, and/or smaller heat loads. However, the actual achievable cooling amount will vary widely depending on environmental factors unique to each particular application.
