How the sensor platform works

Mac Monitor playing a ServersCheck Video
We do understand that not everyone likes to read manuals and that seeing is believing

This is why we have created a series of how-to video's showing you how our base units and some of our sensors work.

Enjoy the video's :-)

The basis: you need a sensor ①, a base unit ② (called the SensorGateway) and a switch ③
The basis of a ServersCheck hardware solution: sensor, base unit and a network

non-relevant transparent gif The sensor connects to a base unit (SensorGateway) using a standard network cable. The network cable tranmits data and power between the base unit and the sensor. The maximum distance between a sensor and the base unit is up to 100m/330ft when using a CAT6/7 cable and is subject to cable quality and interference.

The sensor connects to the base unit over a standard network cable. Max distance is 10m/30ft

non-relevant transparent gif The SensorGateway supports by default up to 2 sensors. With the optional SensorHub up to 8 sensors can be connected to a base unit.
The base unit supports up to 2 sensors by default or up to 8 with the optional sensorhub

non-relevant transparent gif The SensorGateway connects to a switch over standard CAT5 or CAT6 UTP network cable. If your switch is PoE ready then the base unit will be powered over the network.

No PC or software required
The base units are stand-alone units. They do not require any PC or software to operate.

You configure them using a browser and then they just operate on their own.

The optional ServersCheck Monitoring Platform enables you to centrally monitor, alert and store historic data on multiple InfraSensing or 3rd party sensors.
no pc required for the ServersCheck to operate once configured

100% On-premises | No internet required
The base units connect to your internal network. Out of the box they do not require an Internet connection to operate.

It is not IoT unless you configure it to connect to the Internet.

When you setup a public email server for email alerting, use our Cloud, or our Premium Alert service then it connects to the Internet. In such cases the connections are initiated by the base unit and are only outgoing.

RS-485 for industrial applications
Serial RS485 is still used in non IP based industrial environments. To support customers in legacy environments we do offer RS485 versions of some of our sensors.
