InfraGuard: Environmental Monitoring for Racks
It is not just about protecting data centre equipment from high temperatures but also making sure you are in control and aware as soon as environmental changes occur.
Data room monitoring and management has now become universal although matching the requirement to the facility is very dependent on the software and hardware functionality as well as its availability. To this end there is no doubt that standard off the shelf hardware and software is a proven way of keeping down data room costs.
The management software controls and monitors the most critical hardware and cabinet security aspects, it views the data room as an interconnected environment controlling and monitoring cabinet level aspects such as physical security, power, cooling, environmental and management services. There is also a high degree of flexibility in both the software and hardware allowing for large or small data rooms as well as future system expansion.
A wide range of sensors are available for complete environmental monitoring:
- Temperature & Humidity
Additional devices can also be integrated:
- LED light bars
- Fan Units
- Power Distribution Units (PDUs)
- Door Sensors
