Airflow Sensor: Sensaphone
The Sensaphone® Airflow Sensor measures the rate of airflow and alerts data center managers when conditions fall outside the ideal range. The sensor monitors the presence or absence of cool moving air and provides relative airflow as a percentage from 0 to 100. It is compatible with Sensaphone’s IMS-1000 and IMS-4000 data center monitoring devices. The connection from the sensor to the host or node uses the existing network wiring infrastructure, and the sensor can be installed in another room or floor away from the host device.
According to the company, using the Sensaphone Airflow Sensor with the IMS monitoring device allows data center operators to detect the presence or absence of cool moving air, track relative airflow, find potential inefficiencies, and develop trend information to determine the need to adjust data center configuration.
