AC Line Voltage Detection
Monitoring AC line voltage in IT environments.
AC Voltage Sensors from AKCP are designed to be used anywhere in the world. When the presence or absence of voltage has been detected the AC Voltage Sensor indicates an Alarm / Normal condition.
SNMP traps can be configured to send when critical conditions occur. SNMP polling via ‘get’ commands is available to retrieve existing status and configuration parameters.
Ease of Installation
All sensors ship with the cables and accessories required for a basic installation and use RJ45 ports for plug and play connectivity. AKCP use industry standard CAT5e cables for all sensor extension cabling. For more advanced installations, sensor cables can be cut to length on site or you can ask our sales team for custom length sensor extension cables prior to ordering.
Unexpected system downtime is incredibly costly to a data center.
A study from Ponemon Institute in 2013 showed that the average cost of data center downtime is approximately $7,900 USD per minute and rising. Average incident lengths are approximately 86 minutes, resulting in an average cost per incident of approximately $679,400 USD.
AKCP provides sensor monitoring platforms assisting in the prevention of system downtime by proactively alerting staff to maintain equipment and taking automated, corrective actions.
AC Line Voltage Alerts & Notifications
Create alerts and notifications to automate corrective action. Automatically start backup power systems such as generators. http://www.akcp.com/solutions/ac-line-voltage-detection/Gracefully shut down non-essential servers using sophisticated software scripting and sending email or SNMP traps to maintenance teams.
Once the main AC service line has been restored, use notifications to safely turn off backup power systems, wake up servers in standby mode as well as automatically documenting the downtime recording battery and generator runtimes for maintenance purposes.
AKCP Data Center Monitoring
AKCP established in 1981, created the market for networked temperature, environmental and power monitoring solutions. Today with over 100 employees and 130,000 installations, AKCP is the world’s oldest and largest manufacturer of SNMP enabled networked sensors.
