Complete solution provider
Whether you are looking for a few temperature and humidity sensors for your computer room, or rolling out a multi cabinet monitoring solution, AKCP has an end to end solution including sensors, and AKCPro Server DCIM software. Our Rack+ solution is an integrated intelligent rack or aisle containment system.
Wired or Wireless Sensors
AKCP provides both a traditional wired and a wireless monitoring solutions. Our Wireless Wall Penetration System builds upon LoRa™ technology, with specific features designed for the data center. Our wireless sensors give rapid deployment, easy installation and high level of security.
AKCPro Server DCIM
AKCPro Server DCIM monitors all AKCP sensors, as well as third party devices via SNMP or Modbus. Drill down mapping, reports, alerts, graphing, synchronization of video with sensor events, access control administration, asset tracking and cabinet rack maps are all featured. Install on your own server or purchase the L-DCIM, DCIM in a box solution for hassle free implementation.
Environmental Monitoring for Data Centers
Monitoring the environmental conditions in your computer room and data center is essential. Ensuring you are running at optimal ASHRAE recommended temperatures will mean less downtime and longer life of your servers and rack mounted equipment. AKCP has a range of sensors to help you do this, from basic temperature and humidity sensors, to cabinet thermal maps for detailed monitoring.
High temperatures in your rack are a serious problem, and can cause major downtime. Monitor your room temperature, CRAC units and cabinet temperatures. Thermal map sensors give you a detailed view of the front and rear temperatures as well as the △T front to rear temperature differential.
Water Leak Detection
Air Pressure Differential Monitoring
airflow sensors and differential pressure sensors for this purpose.
Power Monitoring for Data Centers
Data Centers need un-interupted power for zero downtime. AKCP monitors your complete power train, from mains power, to branch and cabinet level. In addition we can monitor your backup and redundant power systems such as generators, UPS and Rectifiers, as well as begin to automatically shut down equipment preserving essential systems when power is critical.
Main Line Power
Monitor 1ph or 3ph power. Power Meters can be installed at main line power intake, as well as at branch level, allowing you to monitor power consumption at multiple locations through it’s distribution. Monitoring of main line power is required for PUE calculations.
UPS Battery Stacks
UPS systems are found in every data center, big or small the chances are you have batteries to provide temporary power. With our virtual sensor technology we can monitor SNMP or Modbus enabled UPS stacks and rectifiers, generating alerts when battery level is low. The Battery Monitoring Sensor can also be used to monitor battery stacks.
Cabinet Level Current and Power
Security Monitoring for Data Centers
Securing your cabinets and access to the data center floor is essential to preserve security of data and your assets. AKCP provides a range of access control products, including cabinet swing handle locks, as well as door controllers for restricting access to areas of your building. The access database is distributed to each controller meaning there is no need to authenticate back to the main server.
RFID Swing Handle Locks
RFID Swing handle locks include a manual key override for emergency access, master key for all racks, RFID card access and dual authentication RFID and PIN number options can be purchased. The RFID Swing Handle Lock is desigend to fit most standard cabinet panel preperations.
Door Control Unit
Door Control Units are used to connect elctromagnetic door locks, and electronically controlled bolts or latches. RFID readers and push button exit buttons allow for control of ingress and egress from rooms and buildings. For highly secure areas, card swipe in and out is also an option.
