Oper8 EMS

Oper8 EMS systems provide a solution to supervise the environmental conditions and security in IT racks and Edge, Hybrid and Modulare Data Centres.

The Oper8 EMS – 16D, our most feature-filled model, includes sensors that monitor the internal temperature and humidity of the unit, giving readings that can be used as an estimate for the conditions of other nearby rack components.

All models are capable of monitoring external RS485 sensors and additional digital contact-type sensors (often called open-collector, contact-closure, relay-style, normal-open, or normal-closed). All sensors are sold separately, and are available from Oper8 Global.

Oper8 EMS units include output relays to control devices such as door locks, keypads, and circulation fans. The EMS – 16D and EMS – 5DB also include outputs to control an alarm siren and/or beacon.

3 Models available (2DB, 5DB, 16D)

Combined Temperature & Humidity Sensors

Electrical Power Sensors (Voltage & Quality)

Fluid Sensors from 3m to 50m

Door, Ceiling PIR and Air Velocity Sensors
