    Dust Sensors

    Dust sensor
    When dust is present under the raised floor then it may be blown into equipment. The presence of dust accumulates in equipment then at first power usage will increase due to the harder working fans and CPU

    Temperature & Humidity Monitoring

    Dust sensor
    The ambient temperature & humidity measurement checks if your air conditioning unit is still running as expected.

    Ambient temperature should be between 18-27C / 64-80F. Ambient humidity should be between 40% - 60 % rH.

    Power Failure

    Dust sensor
    Power failure is a common reason why edge facilities go offline. Too often the PDU's do not have the built-in alerting capabilities like with LTE or Satellite connectivity.

    Water Leak Sensor

    Dust sensor
    Water is the enemy of electricity. Inside remote offices or IDF rooms, water leak came come from multiple sources. The primary source is a leaking cooling unit. Then you have water leaks from tenants or rooms above your IDF room, street flooding, pipe bursts and many more. The leak sensor by ServersCheck is a 6m water leak sensitive cable so that it can detect water intrusion anywhere in the IDF or office room.

    Thermal Camera Sensors

    Dust sensor
    Thermal runaways of equipment will go undetected with traditional temperature sensors as air conditioning units will try to compensate the heat problem. The thermal camera sensor looks at the equipment and monitors its surface temperature in 4800 points, every 2 seconds.

    Overheating equipment will cause stress fan, CPU errors on the device itself and may also affect neighbouring systems. The difference between outtake and intake (room temperature) should not be

IDF monitoring
with InfraSensing's sensors
To monitor IDF (Intermediate Distribution Frame), MDF (Main Distribution Frame), or server rooms, you may need the following types of sensors:

Temperature sensors: These sensors can be used to monitor the temperature in the room and alert maintenance staff if it exceeds a certain threshold. The benefit of using temperature sensors is to ensure that the temperature in the room is within an acceptable range, as extreme temperatures can cause equipment to fail or become damaged.

Humidity sensors: These sensors can be used to monitor the humidity in the room and alert maintenance staff if it falls outside of an acceptable range. The benefit of using humidity sensors is to ensure that the humidity in the room is within an acceptable range, as high humidity can cause equipment to corrode or malfunction, while low humidity can cause static electricity and damage electronic components.

Airflow sensors: These sensors can be used to monitor the airflow in the room and alert maintenance staff if it falls outside of an acceptable range. The benefit of using airflow sensors is to ensure that there is adequate ventilation in the room, as poor airflow can cause equipment to overheat and malfunction.

Dust sensors: These sensors can be used to detect the presence of dust in the room and alert maintenance staff if it exceeds a certain level. The benefit of using dust sensors is to ensure that the room is kept clean, as dust can clog filters, obstruct airflow, and cause equipment to malfunction.

Corrosion sensors: These sensors can be used to detect corrosion on metal surfaces and alert maintenance staff if it is detected. The benefit of using corrosion sensors is to identify corrosion early, before it causes significant damage, and take preventive action to extend the life of equipment.

Smoke/fire sensors: These sensors can be used to detect smoke or fire in the room and alert maintenance staff if either is detected. The benefit of using smoke/fire sensors is to ensure the safety of the room by detecting fires early and alerting maintenance staff to take corrective action.

Water leak sensors: These sensors can be used to detect water leaks and alert maintenance staff if any are detected. The benefit of using water leak sensors is to prevent water damage to equipment and the room itself, as water can cause serious damage if left unchecked.

Vibration sensors: These sensors can be used to detect vibration and alert maintenance staff if any unusual vibration is detected. The benefit of using vibration sensors is to identify potential problems with equipment, such as imbalanced loads or misalignment, and take corrective action before the equipment fails.

Power quality sensors: These sensors can be used to monitor the quality of the electrical power in the room and alert maintenance staff if any issues are detected, such as voltage spikes or sags. The benefit of using power quality sensors is to ensure that the electrical power in the room is stable and of high quality, as poor power quality can cause equipment to malfunction or fail.
