Portland ME and Chagrin Falls OH - Wireless Sensors LLC announced today that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Etechnologies, an Ohio-based firm that provides data center customers with products, solutions, and services that improve infrastructure efficiency, reduce cost, and strengthen DCIM initiatives.
The agreement covers the full range of SensiNet products including the advanced Rack Sentry system designed to optimize cooling systems in accordance with ASHRAE TC 9.9 Thermal Guidelines for Data Processing Environments. This ASHRAE guideline recommends cooling be controlled from sensors at the inlet of IT equipment and the Rack Sentry system enables this strategy for both new builds and retrofits though advanced wireless mesh networking allowing highly granular thermal sensing at a extremely attractive Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
The SensiNet Rack Sentry system includes specialized sensors for cold aisle, rack inlets, hot aisle, CRAC & CRAH supply and return temperatures, CRAC & CRAH current draw, chilled water supply and return temperatures, contact closures and interface capabilities for any third party sensor with an analog output. This data is accessed through the SensiNet Application Gateway, an embedded appliance providing configuration, visualization, trending, alarming and alerting without the need for any additional software. The Application Server also supports a variety of protocols such as SNMP, Modbus TCP, ODBC, OPC and SOAP for easy integration with DCIM and BMS systems.
"The value of SensiNet is found in the old saying...you can't control what you don't measure" says Paul Richards, Wireless Sensors CEO. "Any optimization project needs to start with an adequate understanding of the thermal characteristics of the facility and the Rack Sentry system makes this process easy and affordable. A complete system for 50 racks starts at under $10K bringing the advantages of advanced optimization within reach of all data center operators. Our customers recognize the benefits of a system that can start small and grow yet still have the power to support the most sophisticated DCIM and BMS strategy. We are very excited to couple the power of SensiNet with the reach and expertise of Pinebreeze in the Southwest. The combination of vast local experience and a powerful new tool bodes well for bending the efficiency curve in the right direction".
Mr. Englhardt says of the Agreement, "the wireless revolution is upon us, and Wireless Sensors' innovative products deliver on all fronts by providing the best connectivity, longest battery life, and fastest system deployment available. Our data center clients demand reliability, modularity, and efficiency. With a Wireless Sensors solution, we know their best interests will be served".
