Data Center Monitoringadmin
Why is Data Center Temperature Monitoring Important?
The interior of an IT cabinet can be a hostile operating environment for your equipment. Servers, switches, and routers generate heat, which needs to be removed. Cool air is drawn in, reducing the operating temperature. Heat is the deadly enemy of your servers. This is why server room temperature monitoring is important. AKCP are a leading supplier of data center temperature sensor.
Data Center Monitoring Solution
Whether you are looking for a few temperature and humidity sensors for your computer room, or rolling out a multi cabinet monitoring solution, AKCP has an end to end data center monitoring solution including sensors, and AKCPro Server DCIM software. Our Rack+ solution is an integrated intelligent rack or aisle containment system. Pressure differential sensors check proper air pressure gradients between hot and cold aisles. RFID Cabinet locks secure your IT infrastructure.
Make your cabinet part of IoT world with intelligent sensors
AKCP Rack+ Data Center Sensors
Add any of the below sensors to your cabinet to build a smart rack solution. Sensors connect to sensorProbe+ base units.
AKCP Rack+ Wireless Solution
Using AKCP Wireless Tunnel LoRa™ radio technology the AKCP Rack+ Wireless Sensors can be rapidly deployed, no cabling and easy to expand without the need for additional sensor ports and base units. Save on IP addresses and rack space. Sensors send their data to an AKCP LoRa™ gateway such as the L-DCIM. Secure and independent private LoRa™ network for monitoring all your cabinets.
Intelligent Hot and Cold Aisle Containment
Detect Cabinet Hot Spots, Obstructions, Fan Failures and more…
Place dual temperature and humidity sensor in your cold aisle to check the aisle temperature is not too hot, or wasting energy by being too cold.
Monitor temperature at the front and rear, top middle and bottom of the IT cabinet, as well as the temperature differential from the front to rear, T value.
Monitor for proper pressure differentials to check adequate airflow from cold to hot aisle. Run more efficiently with correct pressure differential to prevent back pressure and hot air mixing back to the cold aisle.
Water leaks, access control and sensor status lights
The addition of rope water sensors underneath raised access flooring, rack level and aisle access control and sensor status lights completes the intelligent containment monitoring system.
Containment Maps in AKCPro Server DCIM
AKCPro Server includes dedicated desktops for displaying your containment monitoring system in an easy and visual interface. Install AKCPro Server on your own server, or take advantage of the built-in server that is embedded on every L-DCIM.
