RF Code and Raritan have worked collaboratively to integrate RF Code’s wire-free sensor technology with Raritan’s industry leading rack power distribution units (PDUs). The result of this effort is the RF Code R170 PDU Sensor Tag for Raritan which enables data center managers to monitor real-time power consumption and utilization via RF Code’s wire-free sensor network and Sensor Manager application. The RF Code R170 PDU Sensor Tag works in concert with Raritan’s “RF Code Ready” PX family of rack PDUs.
The easy-to-deploy wireless RF Code & Raritan solution enables IT racks to be instrumented quickly for power monitoring and eliminates the time and cost associated with expensive wired Ethernet connections. Deploying the joint solution simply involves installing the Raritan PDU into the rack and then plugging an RF Code sensor tag into a Raritan PDU. All IP address association, configuration, and IP address maintenance is eliminated drastically reducing the cost of PDU power monitoring.
