Smart Sensors Mind Data Center Health

Raritan’s SmartSensors line of monitoring sensors provide data center operators an accurate picture of environments at the rack, aisle, and facility level, and of potential risks.  The sensors can monitor a cabinet's temperature, humidity, airflow, and air pressure, as well as detect water leaks, vibrations, and unauthorized openings of cabinet doors.


The next-generation environmental sensors boast the industry's highest metering accuracy at ±0.5°C for temperature sensors and ±2.5% for relative humidity sensors. SmartSensors come in varied configurations such as a combined temperature and humidity sensor and sensors that detect water leaks and vibrations.  For security, contact closure sensors are available to monitor cabinet door openings/closings.


Sensors 2019 Hits Silicon Valley June 25-27!

Join 7,000+ engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, 10 new and updated tracks, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it. See thousands of the newest technologies in action, learn about the latest applications, and develop invaluable partnerships at the only event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems.


For additional insight, information gathered by the sensors can be monitored and analyzed by Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software for tracking trends and generating reports. Users, for example, can on a dashboard compare the data from sensors to the environmental envelope of a psychrometric chart to ensure that adequate cooling is where it needs to be.


Raritan SmartSensors are available worldwide.  For deeper insights, watch the video below and peruse the SmartSensors datasheet.
