AKCP announces a revolution in data center power monitoring. Upgrade to a smart cabinet.
30 Years ago AKCP created the SNMP environmental monitoring industry. AKCP is at it again with an easy to install upgrade for any existing power strip.
The SPC+ power meter keeps you on top of your cabinet power consumption. This is essential to ensure you are not close to tripping circuit breakers, a situation that can bring down cabinets or the whole data center. PUE calculations also require accurate knowledge of your IT load. By combining the PUE numbers with environmental sensors, the SPC+ can fine tune the data center. Gain optimal levels of energy efficiency without the risk of exceeding ASHRAE recommended temperatures.
Other features of the SPC+ include a patent pending fire suppression system, which contains the situation to a single cabinet and avoids the need for the release of potentially fatal gasses in the data center. A UPS battery management system checks battery drain rates and calculates remaining battery life. Receive alerts when battery levels become critical and remotely shut down non-essential IT loads. Patent pending boot sequence technology prevents the tripping of main breakers when the cabinet is under startup current. Use of Basic Expansion Bus technology means that up to 8 cabinets can be monitored from a single IP address using Gateway and remote SPC+ devices, making SPC+ a cost effective solution.
Available in 1U and 0U configurations for 16 Amp and 32 Amp installations.
Retail List Price starts at $700 USD for a single cabinet including the SPC+ device, thermal map 4 in 1 sensor and smoke detector with fire suppression. Prices as low as $550 USD per cabinet for an 8 cabinet installation. Available today.
