AC² - AC Power monitoring

To give a total overview of your power consumption, Racktivity has complemented its product line with a new family of power meter and monitoring devices. Our AC power management device AC²Meter can be installed at the AC power distribution board or in distributed remote locations such as PoPs, base stations, and head ends.

The unit features a DIN rail mountable design and Ethernet connectivity and supports 8 inputs for current measurements. The AC²Meter also supports our E²Sensor range to offer a granular set of environmental monitoring including temperature, humidity and motion sensing as well as smoke detection, water leak detection under raised floors and dry contacts for rack door intrusion detection.

The meter is fully compatible with our DCPM, a Service Provider Infrastructure & Data Center Performance Management System, allowing you to remotely monitor and manage power and critical environment metrics in your data centers and/or smaller distributed infrastructures.

The AC²Meter provides you with the missing element for a complete power monitoring solution and solves any issues with large or distributed estates of AC powered equipment. With this addition, Racktivity give you the tools to measure and analyse your data in order to prevent downtime and reduce your carbon footprint.
