Resolution:

What are the placement considerations for the condenser relative to the InRow RD?
The condenser should always be placed above the InRow RD unit and at a distance not to exceed 200ft equivalent pipe length. A definition of equivalent pipe length has been provided above.
 
What are the placement considerations for the fluid cooler relative to the InRow RD?
The fluid cooler can be placed up to 600ft equivalent pipe length from the unit. A definition of equivalent pipe length has been provided above. The fluid cooler may be placed at levels above or below the unit within the distance specified. The longer the distance of the fluid cooler from the indoor unit, the larger the size of the pump required.
 
Are optional outdoor heat exchangers (OHE) available with the InRow RD?
APC has standard SKUs available for a limited set of outdoor condensers and fluid coolers. Additional OHEs may be configured and custom ordered with the help of the Applications Engineering team. Standard lead times do not apply to these units.
 
Does APC provide pump packages for the fluid-cooled unit?
APC provides guidelines for pump package sizing via the Applications Engineering team. Most pumps are available in stock for pick-up at local mechanical supply outlets. These will therefore need to be sourced locally per APC guidelines. .
