IT cabinets safe and secure: Rack Monitoring with intelligent PDU and voltage analysis

  • Integrated sensors: 12
  • Monitored threats: up to 25
  • Stand alone – Web server
  • E-Mail – SNMP Alarm
  • Env. and power monitoring
  • 8-way PDU with 2 x 3,600 VA



Monitoring of all critical risks in the IT rack with intelligent PDU and voltage analysis

The MultiSensor-RACK can optionally be operated as a stand-alone solution or in conjunction with an AlarmManager-PRO (or StarterSet-PRO). The MultiSensor-RACK monitors all critical risks in the IT rack and additionally analyzes current and voltage via the integrated PDU.
The integrated web server guarantees a intuitive operation and configuration.

The dashboard – Current state of the system at a glance

On the dashboard you see at one glance whether all measured values and system states are in a normal range. This way, you get a quick overview of all monitored parameters in your IT cabinet.

Additionally, the chart informs you about the course of temperature and humidity. Due to the integrated recording of the MultiSensor-RACK, historical data of  a time span of up to three months can be accessed in the dashboard.


Energy measurement and power analysis

The MultiSensor-RACK determines the current performance of each of the two integrated PDUs. Due to the continuous measurements, the power consumption of the connected end devices can be determined and recorded. The logged data are saved in the long-term storage and enable a consumption registration over the course of one year. At the same time, the MultiSensor-RACK monitors and visualizes power, electric current and peak voltage in a real-time graph. When the determined thresholds are passed, the responsible persons receive an alarm message immediately. Problems with power supply (quality of power) can be identified easier and quicker this way.
