Wireless Sensors and Cormant Announce Integration of Environmental Monitoring and DCIM
Data center and IT infrastructure management can now display and manage
environmental data concurrently with Wireless Sensors' full range of
SensiNet products combined with Cormant's full-featured DCIM solution.
Portsmouth NH and San Luis Obisbo CA - March 29, 2013 - Wireless Sensors, LLC and Cormant, Inc today announced the integration of wireless environmental monitoring within Cormant's state-of-the-art Cormant-CS DCIM solution (formerly known as CableSolve).
The integration includes the full range of SensiNet products including the advanced Rack Sentry system designed to optimize cooling systems in accordance with ASHRAE TC 9.9 Thermal Guidelines for Data Processing Environments. This ASHRAE guideline recommends cooling be controlled from sensors at the inlet of IT equipment and the Rack Sentry system enables this strategy for both new builds and retrofits though advanced wireless mesh networking allowing highly granular thermal sensing at a extremely attractive Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
The SensiNet Rack Sentry system includes specialized sensors for cold
aisle, rack inlets, hot aisle, CRAC & CRAH supply and return
temperatures, CRAC & CRAH current draw, chilled water supply and
return temperatures, contact closures and interface capabilities for
any third party sensor with an analog output. This data is
accessed through the SensiNet Application Gateway, an embedded
appliance providing configuration, visualization, trending, alarming
and alerting without the need for any additional software. The
Application Server also supports a variety of protocols such as SNMP,
Modbus TCP, ODBC, OPC and SOAP for easy integration with DCIM and BMS
"Cormant-CS was a natural choice for us, as their user interface and range of capabilities is excellent" says Paul Richards, Wireless Sensors CEO. "Any optimization project needs to start with an adequate understanding of the thermal characteristics of the facility and the Rack Sentry system makes this process easy and affordable.
"Both the Cormant DCIM solution and the Wireless Sensors technology have open interfaces so our integration went without a hitch and did not even need application code changes" says Cormant CEO Paul Goodison. "Accurate, flexible, reliable environmental monitoring is a requirement we see more and more in the Data Center. The Wireless Sensors solution coupled with the Cormant DCIM plan view really does provide complete visibility to the operator."
