Temperature is one of the most important environmental conditions when managing facilities. This post is the second in our Know Your Environmental Threat series. It discusses how temperature monitoring is used to protect valuable assets in multiple applications including HVAC, server rooms and data centers, food storage facilities, greenhouses, medical facilities, and livestock and animal care.
We are excited to introduce our redesigned infrastructure monitoring system. Based on the performance success of its predecessor, the new IMS-4000E system provides upgraded functionality and peace of mind to business managers who rely on server rooms as the center of IT operations. We have sold more than 6,000 host units worldwide to date.
That’s a question we’re asked frequently at trade shows and industry events. We typically try to tailor our answer according to each customer’s specific situation, but this blog provides a general explanation.
Remote monitoring technology can bring to mind watching for unauthorized access, securing data centers and safeguarding vacation homes, but there are dozens of potential applications. These include keeping tabs on animals in zoos. Livestock. Plants in greenhouses. HVAC equipment. Docked boats. Grapevines in a vineyard. Vaccines. Food products. Pharmaceuticals. Oil wells. Most organizations can benefit from implementing remote monitoring systems, and consumers and the environment will be the ultimate winners.
Sensaphone remote monitoring systems can be connected to a variety of sensors and accessories to keep tabs on basic environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity and water detection, security and power failures. All of these sensors require one of four output types to work with Sensaphone devices: 2.8k, 10k, dry contact (digital), or 4-20mA (analog). In addition to monitoring those sensor outputs, some Sensaphone devices can monitor pulse counts and runtimes — useful capabilities for water/wastewater and HVAC applications.
Leaking water can quickly ruin your business facility and its contents, and the cost to repair all of that damage rises rapidly if you don’t address the problem immediately. You have to act fast to find the source, stop the flow and address the water-logged mess before it grows and gets worse.
Maintaining an ideal growing environment for cannabis plants is not an easy task. Personnel must monitor a variety of factors to ensure their plants stay healthy. Temperature, humidity, equipment status, CO2, and lighting are only a few of the conditions that need to be monitored 24/7.
If you own or work at a pet daycare or boarding facility, you know how important it is to keep cat and dog guests safe and comfortable. If the power fails or a ventilation system stops working when staff is off-site, the results could be disastrous for the animals and your business. Luckily, there’s a fast, easy way to maintain a temperature- and humidity-controlled environment.
