Thermal Map Sensor

Monitor the front and rear of your cabinet for hotspots.

Thermal Map Sensor

Thermal Maps are available with temperature only, or with temperature and humidity sensors. Place a thermal map at the inlet of your rack to map the temperature at the base, middle and top of your air inlet. Place a second thermal map at the air outlet of your cabinet to monitor inlet and exhaust air temperatures at the top middle and bottom. one at the front and a second at the rear of your cabinet to monitor the inlet and exhaust air temperatures at the top, middle and bottom of your cabinet. Get an accurate picture of your rack’s temperature and hotspots to identify potential problem areas or cooling savings.

Interface

Communications cable : RJ-45 jack to sensor using UTP CAT5e/6 cable
Power source : Powered by the sensorProbe+ familiy units. No additional power needed
Power Consumption : Typical 65 mWatt, 13 mA
Maximum Cable Length : Run length is 60 feet (18 meters) with approved low capacitance shielded cable or UTP
   
  sensorProbe+ units auto detects the presence of the Thermal Map Sensor
  Up to 3 dual Temperature and Humidity sensors per Thermal Map Sensor
Customizable configuration: 1 internal and 2 external
   
Important Note: – The Thermal Map sensor is only compatible with the sensorProbe+ platform units.
– When plugging the first time or after upgrading a sensorProbe+ unit, the sensor firmware might be upgraded by the unit and not be available right away.
