    Temperature & Humidity Monitoring

    Temperature & humdiity sensor The ambient temperature measurement checks if your cooling is still operating and if the room has the desired temperature setting. Combined with the humidity sensors, it ensures that your equipment is running within manufacturers' limits.

    Especially for BESS, operating in the right conditions is critical to avoid a thermal abuse that may result in a catastrophic failure.

    Sound & Noise Level sensor

    Sound sensor Sound sensor (SEC-SOUND) performs 2 tasks: measure the highest noise levels in the structure to comply with OSHA requirements. Its main purpose is to detect peaks in noise levels from an environmental security perspective.

    Water Intrustion

    Water ingress sensor Water is the enemy of electricity. Inside remote offices or IDF rooms, water leak came come from multiple sources. The primary source is a leaking cooling unit. Then you have water leaks from tenants or rooms above your IDF room, street flooding, pipe bursts and many more. The leak sensor by ServersCheck is a 6m water leak sensitive cable so that it can detect water intrusion anywhere in the IDF or office room.

    Thermal Camera Sensor

    Thermal camera sensor Thermal runaways of equipment will go undetected with traditional temperature sensors as air conditioning units will try to compensate the heat problem. The thermal camera sensor looks at the equipment and monitors its surface temperature in 4800 points, every 2 seconds.

    Overheating equipment will cause stress fan, CPU errors on the device itself and may also affect neighbouring systems. The difference between outtake and intake (room temperature) should not be more than 20C or 35F.

    CO2 & VOC gas sensors

    Gas sensor Li-ion fires are preceded by gas venting of battery cells. Typically this stage gives a few minutes warning before batteries produce smoke and the fire starts. The gas being monitored for Li-ion is CO2.

    PM Particle Sensor

    Dust sensor The presence of dust accumulates in equipment then at first power usage will increase due to the harder working fans and CPU's running at higher temperatures. Ultimately electronics may fail due to short circuits or corrosion.

    The particle sensor monitors for airborne particles in the air of multiple sizes: PM1, PM2.5, PM4 and PM10.

    Shock & Vibration Sensor

    Thermal camera sensor The shock sensors on each battery cabinet enable to monitor another root cause of catastrophic battery failures: mechanical abuse.

    By recording vibrations multiple times per second, potential mechanical abuse can be detected. Combined with remote visual monitoring through cameras, the accidental or calculated mechanical abuse can be confirmed.

    Coolant Leak Detection

    Water ingress sensor Typical coolants in Li-ion BESS consist of 50% ethylene glycol and 50% water. By putting a water rope sensor around the coolant pipes, leaks can be quickly detected and take immediate action to limit the risk of fires like the one recently in Geelong, Australia.
