Server Technology Rack Environmental Monitoring (EMCU-1-1)

The Power Tower EMCU assures network managers that environmental conditions are within defined tolerances and that unwarranted entry into your equipment cabinets does not go unnoticed.

The EMCU integrates easily with the Power Tower XL.  Locate the EMCU in an equipment cabinet with a PTXL, link it to the PTXL and view temperature, humidity, water sensing and dry contact closures from the same PTXL interface you use to manage & monitor the power.

Ever increasing densities of vertically racked servers conserve valuable floor space in the data center, but the resulting power consumption and heat dissipation create new concerns for data center managers.  Environmental Monitoring, particularly temperature & humidity, is a must for any sensitive infrastructure.

As server failure rates increase 2-3 percent for every one degree rise in temperature, monitoring the temperature in equipment cabinets is vital to the servers' performance.  Introducing the Power Tower Environmental Monitoring Control Unit (EMCU) to monitor vital environmental conditions in your equipment cabinet.  Prevent environmental conditions from exceeding recommended thresholds and protect your equipment cabinet's assets from harmful elements.

The Power Tower EMCU assures network managers that environmental conditions are within defined tolerances and that unwarranted entry into your equipment cabinets does not go unnoticed.

The EMCU can be located in Data centers, co-lo site, web hosting facilities, telecom switching sites, POP sites, server closets, and any unmanned area that needs to be monitored.  Link a EMCU to an existing Sentry Power Tower XL in your equipment cabinet and gain access environmental conditions from the same interface.

Each EMCU supports two temperature humidity probes, a water sensor and other dry contact closures.  When a dry contact experiences a change in state or to its defined threshold, it reports an "error" condition.
