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.

Our Sensors

Temperature

(DPX-T1) Single temperature sensor, 10 ft. (3m) cable length, RJ-12 connector.

Temp/Humidity

(DPX-T1H1) Single combo temperature and humidity sensor, 10ft (3m) cable, RJ-12 connector

Temp/Humidity

(DPX3-T1H1) Single combo temperature and humidity sensor, field replaceable sensor modules, 10ft (3m) cable, RJ-45 connector (Not supported by DPX and PX models.)


Temp/Humidity

(DPX-T2H2) Dual combo temperature and humidity sensors, 10ft (3m) cable from RJ-12 connector to combined temperature/humidity sensor, additional 10ft (3m) cable to second combined temperature/humidity sensor (total length 20ft/6m).

Temp/Humidity

(DPX3-T2H2-KIT) Two single combo temperature and humidity sensors, field replaceable modules, 10ft (3m) cable,RJ-12 connector

Temp/Humidity

(DPX-T3H1) Three temperature sensors, middle sensor supporting humidity (four sensors total in three housings), 13ft (4m) cable from RJ-12 connector to first sensor, 3ft (1m) between first and second and second and third sensor housings.


Temp/Humidity

(DPX2-T3H1) Three temperature sensors, middle sensor supporting humidity (four sensors total in three housings),field replaceable sensor modules, 10ft (3m) cable from RJ-12 connector to first sensor, 3ft (1m) between first and second and second and third sensor housings (Not supported by DPX and PX models.)

Airflow

(DPX-AF1) Single airflow sensor with 10ft (3m) cable and RJ-12 connector. It is designed to monitor airflow such as cooling air blowing through a perforated tile.

Air Pressure

(DPX-T1DP1) Differential air pressure sensor with 10ft (3m) cable and RJ-12 connector. It is designed to monitor two air pressures such as the air pressure on either side of a thermal curtain separating a cold aisle from a hot aisle or above and below a raised floor or overhead plenum.


Contact Closure

(DPX-CC2-TR) Dual contact closure sensor for use with third-party Normally Closed (NC) or Normally Open (NO) switches such as door open or closed, door locked or unlocked, smoke present or absent, etc.

Water/Contact Closure

(DPX-WSF-KIT) Floor water/leak sensor and a contact closure sensor for detecting water or water and glycol leaks. Reliably warns of water leaks at critical points below a raised floor.

Water/Contact Closure

(DPX-WSC-35-KIT) 11.5ft (3.5m) rope water/leak sensor and a contact closure sensor for detecting water or water and glycol leaks. Detect leaks easily anywhere along the length of this flexible cable. Wrap around a rack with in-row cooling.


Water/Contact Closure

(DPX-WSC-70-KIT) 23ft (7m) rope water/leak sensor and a contact closure sensor for detecting water or water and glycol leaks. Detect leaks easily anywhere along the length of this flexible cable. The long length allows you to encircle a data center CRAC unit.

Sensor Hub Expander

(DPX-ENVHUB2) Two-port (1x2) hub to expand RJ-12 sensor ports, comes with mounting bracket and RJ-12-to-RJ-12 cable to connect to, and receive power from, PX and EMX products.

Sensor Hub

(DPX3-ENVHUB4) Four-port (1x4) hub to expand RJ-45 sensor ports, comes with mounting bracket.


Contact

(DX-PD2C5) Two active dry contacts powered by 12V to support door locks. Five digital Normally Closed (NC) or Normally Open (NO) contact closures which require customer-provided NC or NO switches, e.g. door open/close, smoke present/absent, etc. Each of the five ports (channels) can be independently set to NC or NO, factory default is NC, RJ-45 connector (Not supported by DPX, PX or PX2 models).

Vibration

(DX-VBR) Vibration sensor which detects acceleration along three axes (x, y, z). RJ-45 connector.

Proximity

(DX-PIR) Digital proximity sensor which detects motion around a cabinet, RJ-45 connector (Not supported by DPX, PX or PX2 models).
