Emerson's Liebert Mini-Mate line of cooling, air filtration and humidity control devices are usually installed above dropped ceilings in rooms where computer networks or other valuable equipment are stored. They come in a variety of configurations but are typically controlled by a standard Liebert thermostat, or microprocessor, which you can program and monitor. Familiarize yourself with the Liebert thermostat's basic controls, and let the system do the work for you.
