Raritan’s environmental sensors alert you to potential threats to your data center equipment and are equipped with unique features like field replaceable sensor heads, plug-and-play directly into iPDUs, and integrate with Raritan’s powerful web-based DCIM energy management solution.


Environment Sensors

Environment sensors for temperature, humidity, airflow, air pressure, water, and contact closure help data center managers identify hot spots, efficiently and optimally cool equipment, prevent costly downtime, and maintain data center security.


Keep Your Humidity In Check

Maintain proper humidity levels and avoid electrostatic discharge (ESD) problems when humidity is low and condensation problems when humidity is high.


Maintain Optimal Temperature

Use temperature information to optimize the cooling system and raise the ambient temperature to save energy with confidence that you won’t overheat sensitive IT equipment.


Detect Water Leaks

Detect if there is a water leak from external sources or from pipes in a water-cooled rack. Also works with 50% glycol mixture.


Maintain Optimal Pressure

Identify air pressure differences that could lead to hot aisle/cold aisle partition leaks, and cut off unnecessary air flow to save energy.


Secure Your Cabinets

Use a contact closure sensor to trigger an event such as taking a webcam picture when a cabinet door is opened.


Monitor and Manage Airflow

Monitor flow rates of cooling and hot air return to ensure cooling and containment systems are functioning optimally.

EMX – Smart Rack Controller

Raritan’s smart rack controller is a central access point for all of Raritan’s environmental sensors such as temperature and humidity, and in conjunction with Raritan’s data center infrastructure management solution (DCIM) provides sensor readings and asset management.


USB Webcam Support

View real-time images and video remotely and maintain cabinet security with USB webcams and contact closure sensors.


Optimize Your Environment

Support for up to 128 optional external plug-and-play environment sensors that monitor and help manage critical environmental conditions.


DCIM Monitoring Software

Integrates with Power IQ Data Center Infrastructure Monitoring software which can consolidate data from several EMXs and PX iPDUs, making DC management easier.


Wired or WiFi Network Ready

Accessible via 10/100 Ethernet or Wi-Fi so you can use existing wired network infrastructure or avoid the cost of pulling cables.
