Who's Watching Your Data Center Environment?AVTECH's Room Alert 26W Simplifies Monitoring Of Temperature, Humidity, Power, Flood & More
Processor - Vol.29 Issue 33
When it comes to the data center environment, the most common problems encountered are air conditioning and power failure. Air conditioning failure can lead to high temperatures, high or low humidity and water flooding. Power failure can lead to costly network, server and web site downtime, not to mention the cost to replace or fix expensive servers and systems. Extreme temperature changes due to failed heating or cooling equipment, malfunctioning components, or even seasonal changes can damage hardware, threaten uptime, block network access, destroy data and be expensive to recover from.
AVTECH Software’s Room Alert 26W safeguards your valuable equipment by alerting staff when environment changes occur. Room Alert 26W monitors rooms ranging from small unmanned phone or wiring closets to large corporate data centers. And the Room Alert WiSH (Wireless Sensor Hub) sensors are battery-powered and communicate directly with the main unit, so the Room Alert 26W can monitor virtually anywhere, indoors and out, up to 250 feet away.
With the Room Alert 26W, situations that could lead to expensive recovery can be addressed quickly and before they cause damage, downtime or lost revenue.
Easy To Use
Room Alert 26W is an easy to use solution that does not require a host PC to operate. Simply plug Room Alert 26W into your network via Ethernet and then place WiSH sensors and other external sensors in the desired locations. You can set up the Room Alert 26W via the built-in web server interface in minutes.
The 26W’s web server interface lets you visually check current sensor status, change configuration settings, set up alert thresholds and calibrate sensors if needed. Firmware updates are easily completed with the click of a button, ensuring your Room Alert 26W ID Box is running with all the latest features and enhancements.
And the cost of the Room Alert 26W can be justified quickly—often the first time it warns of a threatening condition and enables staff to resolve an issue before it becomes a major problem.
Environment conditions in today’s dense IT data centers are a major concern facing managers. Power outages, air conditioning failures, or blocked ventilation can cause temperatures to rise to 85 or 95 degrees or higher in minutes. Room temperatures over 85 degrees will damage equipment and put data at risk. That makes the Room Alert 26W an easy choice, monitoring in real time and providing the peace of mind you want.
