no pc required for the ServersCheck to operate once configured A regular temperature gives you the temperature of the air in your data center. This sensors tells you how hot it is in your racks. Detect thermal runaways before it is too late.

The world's first SNMP & Modbus temperature monitoring sensor that tells you what it actually sees. 4800 temperature measurement points in one image, analysed every 2 seconds.

A patented innovation.

One image says more than a thousand words.
A traditional temperature sensor tells you what it senses, a thermal imaging sensor tells you what it sees.

The image has a 50° FOV angle and captures in one image 4800 temperature monitoring points.

The thermal image is refreshed every 2 seconds and can be accessed upon request using any web browser or via SNMP & Modbus

4800 temperature sensors into one.
With its 80x60 resolution, the thermal camera senses for temperature in 4800 points compared to 1 point for a traditional temperature sensor.

It is very difficult to detect thermal runaways with a traditional temperature sensor as the HVAC system will try to compensate it. The thermal imaging camera sensor scans the temperature non stop in 4800 points.

Monitors high and low thresholds
Monitors warmest and coldest points
checks every 2 seconds the 4800 sensor points to see if all measurements are within the low and high range.

The high and low temperature readings are being accessed as separate, discrete values through SNMP, Modbus and XML.

SNMP & Modbus Thermal Imaging
ServersCheck offers the first thermal imaging sensor that can be accessed by Network Management Systems via SNMP or Building Management Systems via Modbus. It returns 2 values: the highest and the lowest temperature recorded, every 2 seconds.

50° Field Of View
Thermal camera has a 50 degree Field Of View
The thermal camera has a 50° lens allowing to cover a wide area. It scans every 2 seconds for 4800 temperature points at 1° accuracy in a 0°C to 65°C temperature range

360° Ball Mount
The thermal camera sensor comes with a small and compact magnetic 360° ball mount with an adhesive base. Made of a powerful neodymium magnet and silicon center, it ensures a safe and secure grip of the sensor. 360-Degree ball mount allows you to adjust the camera to any angles you want. It's compact form factor allows you to mount your camera in tight spaces.

How It Works

illustration showing how the thermal sensor works
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 100m/330ft using a CAT6/7 cable (subject to cable quality and interference). One thermal image sensor per SensorGateway is supported.

The sensors are factory calibrated to produce an output image that is highly uniform. Drift effects over long periods of time degrade uniformity, resulting in imagery which appears more grainy and/or blotchy. The sensor is designed to detect thermal runaways. If no corrective action is taken then operation over a wide temperature range (for example, powering on at -10 C and heating to 65 C) will also have a detrimental effect on image quality.
