AKCP announces Cabinet Thermal Map Sensors
Cabinet Thermal Map Sensors monitor air inlet and outlet temperature differentials to identify hot spots and airflow obstructions within the cabinet.
Traditional monitoring of computer cabinet temperature does not take into account the temperature differentials, instead relying on a single temperature sensor position usually at the air intake. This will only give information on the temperature of the air entering the cabinet and fails to alert to potential problems within the cabinet that the utilization of Cabinet Thermal Map Sensors can spot. The temperature differential between front and rear diagnoses airflow obstructions caused by cables, server or cooling fan failures and insufficient pressure differentials to pull air through the cabinet.
Cabinet Thermal Maps come pre wired and ready to mount with magnets, cable ties or ultra high bond adhesive tape to hold them in position on your cabinet. Mount each sensor on the front and rear doors of your perforated cabinet so they are exposed directly to the airflow in and out of the rack. On sealed cabinets, they can still be mounted on the inside and give the same monitoring of temperature differential between front and rear, and ensure that airflow is distributed across the cabinet.
