Every data center has some method of monitoring temperature even if it is just a thermometer or a thermostat on a data center wall. But today, that is hardly considered a best practice. The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) recommends measuring the cool air entering IT equipment near the bottom, in the middle and near the top of each IT rack. Today, many data center managers want to equip their racks with ways to detect water, smoke or when a cabinet door is opened. Some want to install cameras for security so they can spot changes or remotely view the physical environment.

Now it is easy to add simplified yet comprehensive environment monitoring to your IT racks. Raritan’s EMX offers up to eight Raritan sensor ports, eight feature ports for Raritan’s dynamic asset-tracking solution, and eight RS-485 ports, all in a 1U form factor.

Raritan’s smart rack controller allows you to use any of Raritan’s sensors such as temperature and humidity, Raritan’s Power IQ® energy management software, or the asset management solution composed of the AMT and AMS intelligent asset tags, and dcTrack® data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software or a third-party asset management system with SNMP capability.

The 1U device functions as an SNMP gateway with ports for Raritan’s 1-Wire® sensors, as well as ports for RS-485 serial, KVM, DB-9 modem/console, USB-A and USB-B and contact closure.
