Environment Sensors

All Data Center Environment Sensors

Raritan’s environmental monitoring, physical access and security, and specialized sensors are deployed as plug-and-play options for PX intelligent rack PDUs, SRC smart rack controllers, PX inline meters and branch circuit monitors. When connected, sensors will instantly collect and send environment data to a DCIM or BMS software solution.A simple web-based interface allows data center and facility managers to see real-time environment data and report trends over time.

Raritan environment sensors enable data center managers to:

  • Ensure uptime by monitoring racks for potential hot spots.
  • Save on cooling by confidently raising data center temperatures.
  • Maintain cabinet security with contact closure sensors.
  • Improve data center availability by receiving environment alerts.
  • Make strategic decisions on cooling design and containment.
  • Set thresholds and alerts to monitor onsite or remote facilities.

Environmental Sensors

Temperature and humidity can greatly affect the performance of your mission-critical equipment. That is why it is crucial to monitoring them, keeping your devices within their peak operating temperature, preventing costly malfunctions or even failures.

Proper airflow management starts with maintaining the flow of air in hot and cold aisle. With airflow sensors you can monitor and maintain a proper airflow to help lower cooling cost by conserving energy use.

Water leaks can be extremely hazardous for any location where IT devices are located. With Raritan’s water leak detection sensors, you get notified and alerted immediately when a leak happens helping mitigate any long-term outages and damage.

Airflow

(DPX-AF1) Single airflow sensor with 10ft (3m) cable and RJ-12 connector. It is designed to monitor airflow such as cooling air blowing through a perforated tile.


Air Pressure

(DPX-T1DP1) Differential air pressure sensor with 10ft (3m) cable and RJ-12 connector. It is 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.

Water/Contact Closure

(DPX-WSF-KIT) Floor water/leak sensor and a contact closure sensor for detecting water or water and glycol leaks. Reliably warns of water leaks at critical points below a raised floor.

Water/Contact Closure

(DPX-WSC-35-KIT) 11.5ft (3.5m) rope water/leak sensor and a contact closure sensor for detecting water or water and glycol leaks. Detect leaks easily anywhere along the length of this flexible cable. Wrap around a rack with in-row cooling.


Water/Contact Closure

(DPX-WSC-70-KIT) 23ft (7m) rope water/leak sensor and a contact closure sensor for detecting water or water and glycol leaks. Detect leaks easily anywhere along the length of this flexible cable. The long length allows you to encircle a data center CRAC unit.

Sensor Hub Expander

(DPX-ENVHUB2) Two-port (1x2) hub to expand RJ-12 sensor ports, comes with mounting bracket and RJ-12-to-RJ-12 cable to connect to, and receive power from, PX and EMX products.

Sensor Hub

(DPX3-ENVHUB4) Four-port (1x4) hub to expand RJ-45 sensor ports, comes with mounting bracket.


Contact

(DX-PD2C5) Two active dry contacts powered by 12V to support door locks. Five digital 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. Each of the five ports (channels) can be independently set to NC or NO, factory default is NC, RJ-45 connector (Not supported by DPX, PX or PX2 models).

Vibration

(DX-VBR) Vibration sensor which detects acceleration along three axes (x, y, z). RJ-45 connector.

Proximity

(DX-PIR) Digital proximity sensor which detects motion around a cabinet, RJ-45 connector (Not supported by DPX, PX or PX2 models).
