Case study HWg-CS31: 19” cabinet monitoring over IP (E-mail, SNMP)

Example of remote door control, temperature monitoring and smoke detection in a cabinet. When a door is open or closed, or the safe range of environmental conditions is exceeded, an alert is sent by E-mail or SNMP trap. It is also possible to connect a horn as a local alarm, or a fan as local cooling. The solution is designed for 19” racks.

Whenever a cabinet (19” rack) door is opened, you receive an e-mail. SNMP trap alerts you to high temperature, or to electricity supply outage. Remote control of server restart or server cooling.

Poseidon 4002 is connected to the Ethernet, directly generates e-mails. Configuration and control take place over the built-in Web server. Poseidon 4002 and all sensors are designed for installation into a 19" cabinet (1U). Full SNMP compatibility, simple HWg-PDMS monitoring software for Windows is available free of charge. Magnetic door contact, it is also possible to connect a humidity detector or a water flood detector. The PowerEgg unit monitors the 110/230V suppPoseidon 4002ly and can remotely switch on/off the power to a server or an A/C unit.
