Environment Sensors

All Data Center Environment Sensors

Raritan’s sensors are deployed as plug-and-play options for PX intelligent rack PDUs, EMX rack controllers, PX inline meters and branch circuit monitors eliminating the need for a separate controller. Environment data is instantly sent to a DCIM software solution.  A simple web-based interface allows data center managers to see real-time environment data and report trends over time. Raritan environment sensors enable data center managers to:

  • Ensure uptime by monitoring racks for potential hot spots.
  • Save on cooling by confidently raising data center temperatures.
  • Maintain cabinet security with contact closure sensors.
  • Improve data center availability by receiving environment alerts.
  • Make strategic decisions on cooling design and containment.
  • Set thresholds and alerts to monitor onsite or remote facilities.

feature-environmental-sensors-1

Maintain Optimal Temperature

Use temperature information to optimize the cooling system and raise the ambient temperature to save energy with confidence that you won’t overheat sensitive IT equipment.

feature-environmental-sensors-2

Keep Your Humidity In Check

Maintain proper humidity levels and avoid electrostatic discharge (ESD) problems when humidity is low and condensation problems when humidity is high.

feature-environmental-sensors-4

Maintain Optimal Pressure

Identify air pressure differences that could lead to hot aisle/cold aisle partition leaks, and cut off unnecessary air flow to save energy.

feature-environmental-sensors-5

Detect Water Leaks

Detect if there is a water leak from external sources or from pipes in a water-cooled rack. Also works with 50% glycol mixture.

feature-environmental-sensors-3

Monitor and Manage Airflow

Monitor flow rates of cooling and hot air return to ensure cooling and containment systems are functioning optimally.

feature-environmental-sensors-6

Secure Your Cabinets

Use a contact closure sensor to trigger an event such as taking a webcam picture when a cabinet door is opened.
