Temperature monitoring

in the server room and computing room

High temperatures in the server room result in system failures. They also shorten life expectance of servers and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). For example, lead acid batteries lose half of their operating hours if they are used at just 8°C over the recommended temperature range. Relative humidity is also critical. If it is too high, the result is corrosion, and if it is too low, this can lead to electrostatic discharge.

Web Thermometers monitor temperature and relative humidity in your computer centre or server room. When limits are exceeded alarms are triggered which inform the responsible persons for example via email and use switching outputs to introduce responses, such as turning on additional cooling equipment.

Climate recommendation for server rooms and computing centers

The guidelines published by the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Condition Engineers (ASHRAE) recommend the following:

Recommended temperature

18°C to 27°C

Recommended relative humidity

40% to 60% RH
