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 in order to maximize uptime and avoid early failure due to equipment stress.
Ambient temperature should be between 18-27°C / 64-80°F.
Ambient humidity should be between 40% - 60 % rH.
Temperature & Humidity Sensors
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.
Water Leak Sensing
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.
Infrared Thermal Camera 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.
Power failure is a common reason why edge facilities go offline. Too often the PDU's do not have the built-in alerting capabilities like with LTE or Satellite connectivity. This sensor ensures that you know when there is an AC power failure so that you can take action before it's too late.
Power Failure Sensors
The quality of power is one of the main reasons causing equipment to fail, data to be lost or shortening life span of electronics. All impacting business operations. This sensor is able to detect up to 85% of all power quality issues. Plug & Play. No electrical work needed.
Power Quality Sensors
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.
Corrosive gasses may be present in the outdoor air. Through ventilation they may get into your facility. H2S & SO2 gasses are known to corrode electrical and electronic equipment resulting in an environmental risk for your facilitiy. NOx & VOC form another danger to your facility.

ASHRAE recommends 6 temperature sensors per rack. Others like Gartner recommend a minimum of 3 temperature sensors per rack: 2 on the intake side (top & bottom) and 1 one at the top back (outtake).
The daisy chain temperature sensors are designed to solve the limitations of standalone sensors. Each sensor connects onto the next one and thus requiring only 1 sensor port on the base unit (through the DAISY-STARTER)
Daisy Chain Temperature Sensor
This sensors checks non stop the grounding's resistance. This allows you to get early warning on your grounding system.
The sensor detects following:
- accidental disconnected grounding systems
- corrosion of copper ground bars due to environmental conditions
- copper ground theft
