SmartSensors™ are deployed as plug-and-play options for PX intelligent rack PDUs, SRC smart rack controllers, PX inline meters, and BCM branch circuit monitors eliminating the need for a separate controller.
Sensors are grouped into five main categories: environmental monitoring sensors, water detection sensors, physical access & security sensors, specialized sensors, and sensor hubs & accessories. Environment data collected by sensors can be instantly sent to a DCIM software solution or managed via a simple web-based interface. Data collected allows a data center or facility manager to see real-time environment data, alerts, and related events to report trends over time.
Our environment sensors enable data center managers to:

(DX2-AF1) Single airflow sensor; field replaceable sensor module with dual RJ45 connectors.
(DX2-T1DP1) Differential air pressure sensor with dual RJ45 connectors, 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. Dual RJ45 connectors.
The Water/Leak Floor series (DX2-WSF, DX2-WSF-KIT) detect the presence of water and glycol leaks. Reliably warns of water leaks at critical points below a raised floor. Available in 3.5m, 7m, and 10m lengths.
The Water/Leak Rope series (DX2-WSC, DX2-WSC-KIT) also detects the presence of water as well as marking the specific location of the leak. Detect leaks anywhere along the length of this flexible cable and reports the position on the cable. Wrap around a rack with in-row cooling. Available in 3.5m, 7m, and 10m lengths.
(DX-PIR) Digital proximity sensor detects motion around a cabinet; field replaceable with dual RJ45 connectors.
(DX2-CC2) detects the open-and-close and on/off status of connected third-party door position, door lock, and vibration detectors and switches; field replaceable sensor module with dual RJ45 connectors.
(DX-PD2C5) Two active dry contacts powered by 12V to support door locks. 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. Dual RJ45 connectors.
(DX-VBR) Vibration sensor detects shock and vibrations over a range of frequencies; field replaceable with dual RJ45 connectors.
(DX2-ENVHUB4) Four-port (1x4) hub to expand RJ45 sensor ports to increase the number of connected sensors; each port on the Hub can handle multiple sensor packages*; comes with a mounting bracket. (*Contact us to learn more!)
(DX2-REMHUB4) Four-port (1x4) hub to expand the length of RJ45 sensor ports on the SRC-0800 Smart Rack Controller model only; comes with a mounting bracket.
