SensiNet Rack Sentry Wireless Data Center
Monitoring for Temperature and Humidity
The Rack Sentry system is specifically designed for the needs
of Data Center operations and provides the needed tools to optimize
cooling at the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry.
The Rack Sentry product line features integral temperature and humidity sensors
for single point measurements and a unique tri-point sensor configured
to provide low, middle and high point rack measurements in accordance
with the latest ASHRAE guidlines.
These sensors are all deployed without
Operating today’s data centers is a
multidisciplinary effort requiring a balance between controlling
operational costs and maintaining reliability.
Facilities managers are under pressure to reduce
cooling costs and increase Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) while IT
managers concerned with disaster prevention need to ensure reliability
Computer Room Air Conditioners (CRAC) must
satisfy the demands placed on them by increased server rack density and
be sized to support capacity expansion as the worlds appetite for data
Facilities managers require temperature and
humidity performance data to evaluate and adjust hot isle / cold isle
strategies, baffling, zoning and water cooling considerations and need
to integrate this information with their building automaton systems
though familiar protocols such as Modbus.
IT managers need this same thermal profiling
information to support load balancing and transfer strategies monitored
through network management tools utilizing Simple Network Management
Monitoring systems must be dynamic to support
system tuning and qualifications from adds, changes and moves. Wireless
Sensors has the solution with its tether free environmental data
acquisition system which is:
Totally wireless sensors for temperature,
humidity and other measurements are fast and easy to deploy. Attach the
sensor to the rack and turn it on…the self forming mesh network takes
care of the rest. Systems are deployed or reconfigured in hours, not
days or weeks and sensors can be added or removed without any
reconfiguration. Embedded gateway architecture supports stand alone
operation or integration with existing systems through multi-protocol
support. Sensor data can be used for disaster prevention with integral
alarms via email and SMS messaging or for EPA Energy Star benchmarking
2. Reliable Multipath mesh networks provide redundant paths for sensor data and
frequency hopping radio technology eliminates effects of interference to
support the most stringent disaster prevention program. The system is
self healing and all communications acknowledged and checked for errors.
Demand no less from your environmental monitor than your customers do
from your data network.
Enjoy the benefits of granular measurements without breaking
the bank. Start small with a few sensors or instrument each rack with
inlet, middle and exit point measurement for rack gradient measurements.
Our system is the lowest cost of ownership of any system on the market.
