Product Description

Geist Watchdog 15

Geist, a leading manufacturer of environmental monitoring products, offers the Watchdog 15, a micro environmental monitor that enables environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity to be monitored. The Watchdog 15 is a self-contained micro environmental monitor that has an on-board temperature and humidity sensor, but can be expanded to four digital sensors connecting through a standard splitter. This allows users to monitor remote environmental conditions via a secure web interface. The Watchdog 15 allows users to receive SNMP and e-mail alert notifications when user-specified thresholds are exceeded.

Environmental Monitoring has become an important issue within the data centre with temperature and humidity being the most critical conditions to monitor. Whilst temperature monitoring is given moderate attention, monitoring the relative humidity can often be overlooked. Whilst a site works to decrease temperature, they may inadvertently decrease humidity below recommended levels. Humidity has the potential to create condensation leading to corrosion and the possibility of electrical failures, or if the relative humidity is too low, static discharges that can cause serious problems.

The compact size of the Watchdog 15 micro environmental monitor is perfect for installation in tight spaces allowing it to be used for a variety of applications, and enables these critical areas of temperature and humidity to be monitored.
