PDU Environmental Sensors

Environmental sensors can be deployed as plug-and-play options for many intelligent rack PDUs and inline power meters. This type of monitoring eliminates the need for a separate controller. Environment data is instantly sent to the PDUs onboard software. A simple web-based interface allows data center managers to see real-time environment data, report trends over time as well as set alert thresholds.
