Improved control and monitoring of data centre racks
25 April 2015
Computer Multi Control systems (CMCs) provide real-time monitoring and remote management of data centres, delivering significant benefits including lower costs, increased up-time, the protection of manufacturer’s warranties.
Now, the latest generation of CMCs from Rittal - the CMC III - is available with updated firmware to allow a more user-friendly experience along with better access to data storage and greater data storage capacity. This facilitates easier trend mapping and review of data centre performance over time.
CMC sensors can detect and alert the user to changes in temperature and humidity as well as detecting smoke or security breaches.
The CMC III system can be programmed either to respond appropriately when an alarm is raised – for example a rise in temperature within the racks could automatically lead to their doors opening to cool the servers.
CMC III can also be used to monitor the DET-AC III extinguisher system via CANbus. Alternatively, CMC III will simply raise an alarm for manual intervention.
All sensors from the previous CMC II system can be connected directly to the CMC III unit without an adapter.
