Easily Monitor Data Center Equipment with the Stratus EMS System

ASTON, Pa., October 14, 2020 – The Stratus EMS system enables data center managers to conveniently monitor equipment and environmental conditions in real time via smartphone, tablet or computer. The Stratus EMS pulls information from the integrated sensors of building control equipment and in server room equipment, such as intermediate distribution frames, by reading values over Modbus RTU/485 and Modbus TCP for alarming and data acquisition.

The Stratus EMS helps to prevent downtime by sending instant alerts to facility managers and IT personnel when value readings fall out of range—all without adding additional wiring and sensors. Operators can easily monitor the performance of devices like building automation systems, uninterruptible power supplies, net meters, power distribution units and HVAC systems. The Stratus EMS can monitor up to 64 Modbus values, and supports JSON, HTTPS, POST, cURL, REST Web services API data interchange formats.

It also includes 12 digital/analog universal inputs for connecting external sensors to monitor conditions like vibration, differential pressure, leak detection, air flow, temperature and humidity. All 12 inputs and 2 outputs provide a selectable 24 VDC source for each sensor, so users can easily wire sensors that require an operating voltage. This also provides an added cost savings by eliminating the need for an additional power supply.

Cloud-based manageability and the app allow for fast status checks and quick modification of parameters or settings. The Stratus EMS immediately notifies an unlimited number of people by email, text message or voice phone calls in the event of an alert.

The Stratus EMS is available with an optional rack-mounted LCD that displays data onsite and an external cellular kit for use when the system cannot be used on the same network as the equipment it is monitoring.
