Remote GSM Temperature Alarms for Computer Server Rooms from Orbit Communications

Supplier News

The new GenTemp remote GSM temperature alarms from Orbit Communications are suitable for temperature monitoring applications in computer server rooms.

GenTemp remote GSM temperature alarms continuously monitor the temperature of the computer server room, sending an alarm via the GSM or Next-G/3G mobile phone network as soon as the temperature rises above the user-programmable temperature alarm point.

An SMS alert message is immediately sent by the GenTemp to up to 5 mobile phones. The remote temperature alarm system comes with a high gain antenna to ensure reliable contact with the mobile phone network in weaker signal areas.

The user-programmable temperature alarm trip-point can be set anywhere from -50ºC to +150ºC. Typically the temperature alarm trip-point is set around 28ºC - 33ºC.

Additionally, to know the current status of the temperature levels in the computer server room at any time, the user can send a text command message remotely to the GenTemp alarm system from any mobile phone.

GenTemp will respond immediately by sending the current temperature back to the mobile phone that requested the information. Software supplied with the GenTemp GSM temperature alarm system enables a user-defined password to be set to prevent unauthorised use of the system.

Users can also remotely switch a digital output ON or OFF within the GenTemp unit. This feature provides a convenient method to switch on a fan or other cooling device to provide temporary control of the temperature until the maintenance person can attend to the cooling issue.

GenTemp can be supplied with an optional battery backup system. Maintained in a fully charged state, the system will run from the backup power source in the event of a power failure. Simultaneously, the system will send a Mains Failure alarm message directly to up to 5 mobile phones.

Battery voltage is also monitored by the GenTemp remote GSM temperature alarms. When battery voltage is running low, a ‘low battery’ alarm is sent remotely via the GSM or Next-G mobile phone network.

Optional display, keypad and local alarm indication can be supplied to provide instant visual indication of current temperature as well as a local audible and visual alarm in case of over-temperature condition in addition to the remote alarm function.

GenTemp remote GSM temperature alarms offer a reliable solution for remote monitoring of room temperature and ongoing dependable performance.

The remote temperature monitoring alarm system is designed, manufactured and 100% fully supported in Australia by Orbit Communications.
