Wireless Sensors and Cormant Announce Integration of DCIM and Environmental Monitoring

Cormant-CS was a natural choice for us, as their user interface and range of capabilities is excellent - Paul Richards, Wireless Sensors CEO

San Luis Obisbo, CA and Portsmouth, NH, USA (PRWEB) April 09, 2013

Wireless Sensors, LLC and Cormant, Inc today announced the integration of wireless environmental monitoring within Cormant's state-of-the-art Cormant-CS Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution.

The integration includes the full range of SensiNet products including the advanced Rack Sentry system designed to optimize cooling systems in accordance with American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) TC 9.9 Thermal Guidelines for Data Processing Environments. This ASHRAE guideline recommends cooling be controlled from sensors at the inlet of IT equipment and the Rack Sentry system enables this strategy for both new builds and retrofits though advanced wireless mesh networking allowing highly granular thermal sensing at an extremely attractive Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

The SensiNet Rack Sentry system includes specialized sensors for cold aisle, rack inlets, hot aisle, Computer Room Air Conditioner (CRAC) & Computer Room Air Handler (CRAH) supply and return temperatures, CRAC & CRAH current draw, chilled water supply and return temperatures, contact closures and interface capabilities for any third party sensor with an analog output. This data is accessed through the SensiNet Application Gateway, an embedded appliance providing configuration, visualization, trending, alarming and alerting without the need for any additional software. The Application Server also supports a variety of protocols such as Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), Modbus Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), Open Database Connectivity (ODBC), Open Connectivity (OPC) and Simple Object Acces Protocol (SOAP) for easy integration with DCIM and Building Management System (BMS) solutions.

"Cormant-CS was a natural choice for us, as their user interface and range of capabilities is excellent," says Paul Richards, Wireless Sensors CEO. "Any optimization project needs to start with an adequate understanding of the thermal characteristics of the facility and the Rack Sentry system makes this process easy and affordable."

"Both the Cormant DCIM solution and the Wireless Sensors technology have open interfaces so our integration went without a hitch and did not even need application code changes," says Cormant CEO Paul Goodison. "Accurate, flexible, reliable environmental monitoring is a requirement we see more and more in the data center. The Wireless Sensors solution coupled with the Cormant DCIM plan view really does provide complete visibility to the operator."
