Raritan’s Smart Rack Controller (SRC) is an intelligent sensor management solution that serves as a central connection point for environmental monitoring, asset location, physical access, and other monitoring and security sensors. It addresses the gaps in instrumenting a facility or data center by providing an all-in-one intelligent device that collects and delivers real-time actionable data about your facility with minimum change to the configuration of existing power distribution or IT infrastructure.
The SRC is powered by Raritan’s proprietary Xerus Technology Platform with the latest iX7 controller that delivers a future-proof design. Its multiple interface ports connect, monitor, and manage DX2 SmartSensors, Asset Management accessories, and the SmartLock Door System into one device. It is a plug-and-play solution that can measure data in remote areas while seamlessly integrating with BMS and DCIM software. This allows operators to accurately and quickly measure conditions from anywhere, providing valuable insights to optimize and drive efficiency in a facility.
Benefits of the Smart Rack Controller:
Connect up to 204 plug-and-play sensors* that monitor and manage critical environmental conditions, such as temperature, humidity, and airflow, as well as security conditions with physical access control devices like door handles and card readers. (*requires additional accessories to extend coverage)
Define thresholds and receive alerts via SNMP, email, and API when thresholds are crossed for both asset and environmental events.
The iX7 controller delivers more compute power, reliability, a new level of access control, multiple interface ports, and a future-proof design to help you manage your data center operations more efficiently and at lower costs.
Gain true power redundancy with dual power supplies and inputs. If one power feed fails, the SRC will still operate as normal and continue to collect and gather data.
Support existing cabinet infrastructure or even mount outside a rack, in an equipment closet, or other areas to make better use of your available space with rack mount or vertical mount orientations.
Easily integrate into Building Management System (BMS) or Data Center Infrastructure Monitoring (DCIM) Software tools with protocols like SNMP, Modbus over TCP/IP, and JSON-RPI by leveraging the Xerus-enabled open architecture.
The SRC allows for easy expansion by daisy chaining sensors to increase collection points. With the added sensor hub, you can connect up to 204 sensors, mixing and matching any type.
The SRC can be deployed, managed, and monitored via a web GUI, mobile app, or through other management systems to provide operators flexibility.
A multi-colored LCD display provides local visibility of all sensor data with real-time alerts and alarms.
Simply connect to Raritan’s electronic door access and control system, which provides an easy to deploy and economical networked locking solution for all types of data center enclosures.
By connecting Raritan’s unique Asset Management Tags and Sensors, you get an accurate, automated, real-time inventory of all IT assets and their locations, down to the 1U level.
The SRC provides flexibility in monitoring and managing remote and unstaffed facilities by adding a layer of intelligence enabled by a wide variety of sensors.
