Introducing Smart Sensors - Gaining Critical Environment Insights with Sensors

As rising energy cost and consumption per server grow by 9% each year according to IDC, it’s more important than ever to closely monitor your data centre’s power and environmental data.

That is why Raritan developed SmartSensors, a comprehensive set of environmental sensors that deliver accurate data providing insights into your data centre’s environment. The advanced feature set allows for easy deployment, clear identification of hot spots, and better airflow management.

Raritan offers the widest range of sensors for all your data centre environmental needs from monitoring temperature, humidity, airflow, air pressure, water/leaks, contact closures, proximity detection, and vibration.

SmartSensors are a comprehensive set of environmental sensors, engineered to facilitate easy deployment while providing the most accurate data and insight to your operation. When mission critical IT hardware is your responsibility, it’s important to be aware of any environmental hazards that could impact or jeopardize the performance and life of your IT assets. SmartSensors enable you to instrument your white space environment with the latest sensor technology directly from any Xerus enabled controller.
The sensors provide real-time environment alerts, notifying you immediately when something is astray, increasing the response time to remediate any critical risks. You can easily recognize hot spots, optimally cool equipment, and prevent costly downtime.
SmartSensors enable a seamless connection directly to your existing rack power infrastructure providing a faster, easier deployment with substantial cost savings. Have a worry-free deployment knowing the sensors can easily retrofit into any Raritan or non-Raritan power infrastructure. With the highest-level metering accuracy in its class, providing better insights for smarter actionable decisions.

The benefits are:
Easy deployment with scalable sensor technology
Ensure uptime by monitoring racks for potential hot spots
Save on cooling by confidently raising data centre temperatures
Stay alerted 24/7 of service-impacting conditions
Obtain the right insight to drive strategic decisions on cooling design and containment
