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.

In Conversation with Antonio Neri, President & CEO – Hewlett Packard Enterprise & Salil Parekh, CEO – Infosys

Hear the CEOs of Infosys & HPE discuss the current crisis and how it has accelerated the need for digital transformation for their clients. Connectivity at the Edge, right mix of hybrid cloud, ability to extract data faster than ever before… these are just some of the contributions that HPE and Infosys make to our clients’ digital transformation journey.


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.
