The Eaton Environmental Rack Monitor (ERM) continuously monitors environmental conditions at the rack level, providing an extra level of security for critical assets. The primary application is for high-density data centers, but this compact, full-featured unit can monitor conditions in laboratories, hospitals, warehouses, libraries, museums and any other indoor location where the environment must be maintained within acceptable levels.
In the typical rack application, the 0U-size rack monitor base unit can be placed horizontally or vertically in any unused space in the rack. This base unit supports up to two combination temperature and humidity sensor units (known as TH-Modules) that can be placed anywhere in the enclosure. Each hot-swappable TH-Module can support up to two additional input contact sensor devices, for a total of eight sensors per rack monitor. The standard package come with one TH-Module. Additional TH-Modules and sensors can be purchased separately. The ERM also supports third party contact sensors.
