Data Centers Deploy Thermal Sensors

March 19, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

Data Foundry Energy ManageData Foundry deployed thermal sensors from RF Code throughout its data centers to maximize the efficiency of cooling distribution.

RF Code’s sensors help keep the temperature of the hardware in data centers within an acceptable range. Data Foundry says the sensors have taken it from intermittent batch temperature readings to trended and alarmed measurements so that it can actively enforce airflow best practices and optimize cooling.

Data Foundry is using the Rack Cooling Index and Return Temperature Index capabilities in RF Code’s data center management software to ensure compliance with ASHRAE guidelines.

In 2013, CA Technologies integrated RF Code’s technology into CA’s Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM), enabling customers to collect, monitor and analyze environmental and asset location information for an enhanced view of their data center infrastructure.
