New EkkoAir thermal monitoring solution is world’s first IoT system used to measure data centre cooling loads in real-time
Data centre thermal risk expert EkkoSense has launched EkkoAir – the world’s first IoT monitoring solution to track data centre cooling loads in real-time. EkkoAir, which can be simply fitted to any cooling unit in moments, wirelessly allows operators to monitor thermal instabilities right across the data centre, enabling them for the first time to balance thermal profiles so that only those cooling units that need to be working are actually active. By concentrating on actual cooling duty information, EkkoSense estimates that data centres can improve their overall energy performance by up to 30%.
