Environment Sensors

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.
