Packet Power Power and Environmental Monitoring

Packet Power Makes Data Centre Power and Environmental Monitoring Easy

The Packet Power power and environmental monitoring solution provides the easiest, most cost effective way to capture detailed power and temperature information for both single site and large multi-facility operations.

Gain insight into what is driving growth in energy power consumption by viewing usage based criteria such as application, end customer, circuit, power phase, etc.  Use the environmental monitoring to see hot spots, while the power monitoring from the smart cables shows power usage mapped across a facility in real time.  Set alerts for power or temperature triggers.

Most products can be Installed without an electrician or the need to remove existing equipment. All power and environmental monitoring devices utilise a self-configuring wireless network to communicate instantly with each other, keeping the need for IP addresses to just one per Ethernet Gateway!  Use the Packet Power software or integrate the power and environmental temperature data into existing operations management systems.  You can easily start small and grow over time.

  • Measure temperature, pressure and relative humidity.
  • Export data via SNMP, Modbus or use Packet Power applications.
  • Deploy quickly and at a fraction of the cost of intelligent power distribution units (PDUs) or branch circuit monitoring.
  • Extend the useful life of power constrained data centres.
  • Quantify energy efficiency savings.
  • Correctly allocate energy costs.
  • Avoid power and temperature related outages.
  • Provide a cross-vendor monitoring system.


The Packet Power Solution

Seamlessly integrates power and environmental monitoring hardware, wireless network, data analysis and reporting.

Wireless Power and Environmental Monitoring Devices

  • Smart Power Cables - incorporate precise power and temperature monitoring into a power cord format.
  • Panel-Based Monitoring - provides main and branch circuit monitoring at the PDP.
  • Environmental Monitoring Nodes - track temperature at multiple points per cabinet, relative humidity, differential pressure and dry contact switch status.
  • Uses a secure 900Mhz wireless mesh network optimised for the challenging wireless conditions within data centres.
  • Ethernet Gateway - gathers data from hundreds of smart power cables and / or environmental monitoring devices.


Application Software

  • Power Manager - makes it easy to map power and temperature monitoring devices to your data centre, show a real time power and heat map, and manage alerts
  • EMX Energy Portal - makes monitoring information easily accessible by providing access from any Web broswer to extensive real time data and easily customised analytical reports.
