Smart Rack Controller

Smart Rack Controller

Sensor Management Solution

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 stand-alone intelligent device that collects and delivers real-time actionable data about your facility with minimum change needed 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, and multiple interface ports to connect, monitor, and manage the 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.

The Benefits of Smart Rack Controller:

  • Minimize the hours needed to track IT assets, thereby saving time and money
  • Ensure uptime by monitoring racks for possible hot spots
  • Save on cooling costs by confidently raising data center temperatures
  • Maintain cabinet security with USB peripherals and contact closure sensors
  • Improve data center uptime by receiving environment alerts
  • Optimize strategic and tactical decision making for the IT environment by tracking IT changes and growth in real time
  • Gain audited controlled access to physical sensitive IT assets with intelligent door locks


Optimize Your Environment

Connect up to 204 plug-and-play sensors and 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.

Receive Advanced Alerts

Define thresholds and receive alerts via SNMP, email, and Syslog when thresholds are crossed for both asset and environmental events.

iX7 Intelligent Controller

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.

Power Redundancy

Gain true power redundancy with dual power supplies and inputs. Which means if one power feed fails, the SRC will still operate as normal and continue to collect and gather data.

Small Form Factor Provides Flexible Mounting

Support existing cabinet infrastructure or even mount outside a rack to make better use of your available space with rackmount or vertical mount orientations.

Compatible with Monitoring Systems and Software

Easily integrate into any Building Management System or Data Center Infrastructure Monitoring Software tools with protocols like SNMP, Modbus over TCP/IP and JSON-RPI by leveraging the Xerus-enabled open architecture.

Additional Features

Flexibility to Expand

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.

Remotely Accessible

The SRC can be deployed, managed, and monitored via a web GUI, mobile app, or through other management systems to provide operators flexibility.

Built-in LCD Display

The multi-colored LCD display on the SRC provides local visibility of all sensor data with real-time alerts and alarms.

Compatible with the SmartLock Door System

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.

Electronic Asset Tracking

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.

Remote IT Locations

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.
