Environmental Monitoring
to mitigate risks impacting equipment's operational availability
Data Center environmental monitoring

Traditionally critical facilities are being equipped with fire detection and fire suppression systems.

When a fire is detected it is already too late. Those systems will try to limit damage but they are unable to prevent it.

Often a fire is preceeded by 2 phases:
- overheating of equipment (the "it feels very hot" phase)
- releases of gasses (the "it smells funny" phase)

With the sensors from InfraSensing by ServersCheck, you could detect critical issues before they result in a catastrophic event like a fire.

The sensors do not replace fire safety systems but complement them. The sensor system has to be completed with adequate alerting and mitigation systems to safeguard the infrastructure. Redundant implementation of monitoring is a must in critical infrastructure.

Systems that overheat mostly go undetected due to the cooling provided by the HVAC system. It is only when the cooling system is unable to compensate the heat dissipation of a thermal abnormality, that traditional temperature sensors would be triggered.

With our patented infrared camera sensors, equipment is monitored in a contactless way.

From our daisy chain IR spot sensors to monitor electrical switchboards, to our large infrared camera sensor: check out our full range of infrared monitoring capabilities to safeguard your facilities.

Detect gas releases
from smoldering and overheating gear
Smoke sensors are deployed to monitor for fires and try to catch them quickly.

Prior to smoke and fire, there might be a release of gasses. The type of gas depends on the type of equipment that has an abnormality.

Using a gas sensor abnormal gasses can be sensed to trigger an alert before actual smoke is detected by the fire safety system.

An example are batteries. Lead acid batteries may release Hydrogen gas. H2 at more than 4% reaches the LEL and may become explosive. For Li-ion batteries CO2 and other gas sensors can be used.
