Raritan’s SmartSensors are a comprehensive set of sensors that monitor the environment within a data center. They are engineered to facilitate easy deployment while providing the most accurate data and insight into 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 of SmartSensors:
The sensors benefit from the latest, most high-tech metering components, and delivers the highest metering accuracy at +/- 0.5°C for temperature sensors, +/- 5% for relative humidity.
SmartSensors are plug-and-play ready with Raritan’s PX intelligent rack PDUs, smart rack controllers, inline meters, rack transfer switches, and branch circuit monitors making it incredibly easy to install and deploy quickly without disrupting operations.
SmartSensors feature RJ45 connectors with removable sensor heads making it easy to facilitate deployment and connection to existing racks. The RJ45 sensor head allows you to disconnect and reconnect the sensor without having to rewire the rack, saving on maintenance costs.
Offering the highest flexibility of deployment, SmartSensors can be cascaded in single bus structure to instrument entire rows of your data center with different types of sensors. Cascaded sensors are linked with standard CAT5/6 cables and connected through a sensor port on a control device to ensure comprehensive measurement and monitoring.
