ServersCheck launches at CeBIT Australia its new generation of wireless sensors for server rooms & data centers

At this week's CeBIT 2013, ServersCheck launches with its distributor, Duons Australia, a new generation of probes: the “wireless temperature probes”.

Best practices recommend to monitor the temperature inside a rack in 3 different spots. This can be achieved with 2 external temperature probes connected to a SensorGateway, which also has its built-in temperature sensor.

However, thanks to the new wireless sensor, one SensorGateway can now control up to 30 wireless temperature sensors, or 10 racks.

A wireless temperature sensor can monitor temperature between -10 °C to + 85°C with an accuracy of 0.5 °C. A wireless sensor requires no configuration: once powered it automatically connects to the wireless base station. Wireless sensors have a battery life of one year.

Wireless Offers Significant Advantages
• The ServersCheck wireless temperature sensor is more compact compared to traditional wired temperature sensors and therefore easier to install with the use of magnets.
• No wiring is needed, simplifying the installation, requiring less labor and speeding up implementation.
• The shortage of IP addresses or their cost may hinder the deployment of conventional wired probes. With these wireless sensors, only one IP address per 30 probes is needed.

Depending on regulatory approval, the wireless sensors are expected to be available at the end of Q3 2013.
