How are you protecting your physical server environment from the elements? Your server environment is susceptible to environmental conditions including temperature, humidity, liquid water presence, power, intrusion and smoke. It is impractical to monitor these visually. An environment monitoring systems is almost always the solution. However, what is the best option? We highly recommend the ENVIROMUX® Enterprise Environment Monitoring System (EMS) for several reasons.
Here are a few reasons we think the ENVIROMUX® Enterprise Environment Monitoring System (EMS) is the top of the range. First, let’s look at communication from the device. When a sensor goes out of range of a configurable threshold the ENVIROMUX® Enterprise Environment Monitoring System (EMS) will notify you via email, LEDs, alarm beacon, siren, web page, network management (SNMP), voice phone calls (via Automatic Voice Dialer System), and SMS messages (via external USB 3G modem).
The system also includes two internal sensors: temperature and humidity. It also supports five external configurable sensors, five digital input sensors, and two output relays for control of external devices.
An unmonitored or poorly monitored environment will damage hardware, corrode expensive equipment, and cause electrical malfunctions. Humidity can be a nightmare for any system administrator, and if humidity levels in your server room are beyond the predefined parameters, then you may be putting business-related processes at risk.
- 5 external configurable sensors
- 5 digital inputs sensitive to contact closure
- 2 internal sensors – temperature and humidity
- 8 Remote Temperature/Humidity Sensors over IP
- o E-MICRO-T: 1 integrated temperature sensor, 2 RJ45 ports for external temperature/humidity sensors, 2 digital inputs sensitive to contact closure, dual DC power (dual redundancy).
- o E-MICRO-TRHP: 1 integrated temperature/humidity combination sensor, 2 RJ45 ports for external temperature/humidity sensors, 2 digital inputs sensitive to contact closure, built-in Power over Ethernet (POE), dual DC power (triple redundancy).
- Two output relays for control of external devices.
- Relay activates upon alarm or via the user interface.
- Control output relays via SNMP SET commands to power on/off external devices.
- Supports IP network video cameras for live view of any facility.
- One integrated view – see different Web cameras side-by-side with physical and environmental parameters.
- Any programmed event can trigger a snapshot from an IP camera.
- Monitor (ping) up to 64 IP network devices.
- Alerts are sent if devices are not responding
- Create multiple alerts for any installed sensor.
- Sensor conditions (events) can be configured to trigger alerts by themselves and be used in combination with other events to trigger Smart Alerts.
- Configure up to 50 events.
- o Setup SSH commands to be sent when events are triggered to soft shutdown or reboot machines.
- Up to 20 Smart Alerts can be configured to use different event combinations to send alert messages.
- Alerts are posted in message log, which is accessible through Web user interface.
- Automatically configures network settings received from a connected DHCP server.
- If a DHCP server is not found, the default static IP address will be used.
- Integrates with various Open Source monitoring packages – Nagios and MRTG.
- The unit can be polled via SNMP.
- USB ports for connecting USB modem or for downloading log data to USB flash drive.
- Available with optional internal battery backup.
- When there is a power outage and when power returns an alert is sent out
- Dual redundant power supplies for connection to two separate power sources
- The second power supply is sold separately.
The best way to protect your environment is to implement 24/7 monitoring. We recommend the ENVIROMUX® Enterprise Environment Monitoring System (EMS). Monitor and manage server room environmental and security conditions over IP.
