Data Centers have become an integral part of our everyday lives. From personal communications to banking services, governments, and the military, our reliance on them has no escape in the digital age. Maintaining 100% uptime and reliability of the data center infrastructure is essential for today’s society to function.
AKCP has been a world-leading supplier of environmental, power, and security monitoring for the data center industry for over 40 years. AKCP lists amongst its clients some of the world’s top fortune 500 companies, banks, and government agencies around the world. A recent project, undertaken by their dealer Saudi Electronic Trading and Contracting Company, involved the monitoring of backup power systems for the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition.
AKCP sensorProbe+ devices, equipped with Modbus RS485 communications, were interfaced to generators supplied by the Italian manufacturer BRUNO. Connected to the GQ212V generator control panel the SPX+ as a Modbus master is able to poll parameters from the Genset. Fuel levels, engine speed, engine battery voltage, runtime, generator status, and more.
This allows the data center administrators to ensure that the backup power generators are always monitored, fueled, maintained, and ready when needed. Ensuring 100% uptime and availability of such a critical data center is essential for the safety and stability of the middle east and the fight against ISIL and other Islamic fundamentalist groups.
