Environment Monitoring is an important function for facilities of all types including IT data centers, warehouses, schools, hospitals, offices, restaurants, farms, factories, zoos, museums and more. Maintaining a stable environment where equipment and/or products are housed is critical for their continued operation, protection and use. With this in mind, monitoring is typically needed on a continual basis. The 'IT & Facilities Environment Monitoring' market is arguably one of the fastest growing niches in the computer industry and yet surprisingly remains 'under the radar' of many IT and facilities managers... at least until disaster strikes.

In IT & facilities environment monitoring, there are seven primary threats that are consistently of the greatest concern. These include temperature, power, humidity, flood, smoke, air flow and room entry. Additional sensor types can be found for many purposes. The objective is to implement sensors that will meet the specific needs of your monitoring application, integrate them with an automated monitoring and alerting system and stay within the budget. AVTECH offers a variety of sensors and solutions to help you do just that.

Digital Active Power Sensor w/Temperature

Monitor temperature and active power status with AVTECH's Digital Active Power w/Temperature Sensor. This patent-pending, award winning sensor provides the real-time power status of any electric device by simply strapping it to any AC electrical cord. There is no need to unplug the device, modify the cord, or require an electrician to connect within a main panel, making it easier than ever to monitor any electric device. If the connected device draws more than 100W, the Active Power Sensor will detect this and show the current power status as 'Active'. Additionally, this sensor provides real-time temperature values from -40° to 185° Fahrenheit and/or -40° to 85° Celsius. Accuracy is within + / - 2 C degrees.

Digital Temperature & Analog Sensor

Monitor temperature and analog voltage with AVTECH's Digital Temperature & Analog Sensor. This sensor provides real-time temperature values from -40° to 185° Fahrenheit and/or -40° to 85° Celsius. Accuracy is within + / - 2 C degrees. The analog range is from 0 to 5 VDC. Accuracy is within + / - 0.075 volts. This is a dynamic sensor that provides temperature and analog values every two seconds and feeds temperature and analog data in real-time data back to the Room Alert ID box for data logging, alerting and automatic corrective action. This is an instant 'Plug & Play' sensor via one of the standard RJ-11 jacks on any compatible Room Alert monitor.


Power Sensor

AVTECH's Power Sensor provides real-time recognition of a power source going off or coming on at the outlet it is connected to. Common use is to monitor the power supply of a main, 3 phase, UPS or backup generator source.
Users will often install multiple Power Sensors so they can be immediately informed when one source fails and then immediately informed that the back up supply has taken over. Because AVTECH products allow notification when alert conditions are resolved, users will know immediately when conditions return to normal.


Mini UPS & Power Sensor

AVTECH's Mini UPS & Power Sensor is a unique sensor/UPS combination that detects loss of main power while providing seamless battery backup power for approximately fifteen (15) minutes or more beyond loss of power. Total run time depends upon the power draw of the supported AVTECH environment monitor or other 5V device. Red and Green status LEDs allow users to instantly know the power status at a glance. Compact and lightweight, the MUPS is perfect for small, weight sensitive or remote locations where standard UPS models are difficult or impossible to accommodate.


Flood Sensor w/8' & w/24' Cable

AVTECH's Flood Sensor with attached sensor cable is activated by liquid (i.e. water, fluid, etc.) making contact with the attached Flood Sensor Cable of any length. Once liquid is detected the water sensor triggers an alarm condition allowing the Room Alert hardware, Device ManageR software and/or other monitoring application to send out alerts and/or take automatic corrective action. This is an instant 'Plug & Play' flood warning device via one of the switch sensor channels on the back of any compatible Room Alert ID box. Cable distance can be extended from the standard 25' to approximately 900' by using standard speaker wire, twisted pair or any reliable low voltage 2-wire cable in order to place Flood Sensor and attached sensor cable away from Room Alert unit, on a different floor, above a drop ceiling or under a raised flood.

Typical use is to monitor continuous air flow in an HVAC duct, under a raised floor, or near a fan on a rack cabinet or important server. This is an instant 'Plug & Play' sensor via one of the switch sensor channels on the back of any compatible Room Alert ID box. Cable distance can be extended from the standard 25' to approximately 900' by using standard speaker wire, twisted pair or any reliable low voltage 2-wire cable. This air flow sensor switch is equivalent to the discontinued Stego Air Flow Sensor #01300.1.


Room Entry Sensor

Each AVTECH Door Entry Sensor provides real-time recognition of a door or cabinet being open. Standard use is to mount the wired sensor to the frame of a door. Then, mount the matching actuator opposite of the sensor on the door itself. When the door opens, the two components separate and the sensor trips. This is an instant 'Plug & Play' door entry alert sensor via one of the switch sensor channels on the back of any compatible Room Alert ID box. Cable distance can be extended from the standard 25' to approximately 900' by using standard speaker wire, twisted pair or any reliable low voltage 2-wire cable.


Motion Sensor

Each AVTECH Motion Sensor is a movement sensing device specially equipped with additional electronics that allow it to interface with any compatible Room Alert ID box. The motion sensor is powered by a 12V DC power supply and is designed to detect movement up to 35' away with a cone coverage of approximately 84 degrees wide. This is an instant 'Plug & Play' sensor via one of the switch sensor channels on the back of any compatible Room Alert ID box. Cable distance can be extended from the standard 25' to approximately 900' by using standard speaker wire, twisted pair or any reliable low voltage 2-wire cable.


Relay Switch Sensor

The AVTECH Relay Switch Sensor allows low voltage devices to be turned on/off in response to an event going in or out of an alarm condition. The Relay Switch Sensor supports up to 4 devices with visible relay status lights. Each relay supports loads up to 0.3A at 125VAC or 1A at 24VDC. The first three (3) relay outputs on the Relay Switch Sensor can be individually controlled and activated directly from the Room Alert Web Interface or in response to an alarm condition. The fourth relay output can be used as a general alarm output and will be activated whenever any of the first three (3) relay outputs are activated.


Current Loop 1 Sensor (50A)

AVTECH's Current Loop 1 Sensor (50A) monitors the electrical current flowing through a single-phase powered cable. It outputs a signal of 0 to 5 VDC (volts of direct current), which your built-in or external Room Alert Analog Sensor Port then converts into an amp (A) reading. By pairing a Current Loop with your Room Alert monitor, you can easily determine the power consumption of an electrical appliance or device at your facility. The Current Loop can be easily moved to various appliances as needed and will help you monitor power consumption to determine if a power drop might be causing a problem or if an appliance is drawing too much power. The cost of electricity is one of the fastest growing costs and concerns for IT managers so knowing that a problem exists is the first step in resolving the problem.
