Rittal have launched the Basic CMC, an entry-level system for monitoring IT infrastructure.
The Basic CMC features a compact, easy-to-use plug and play system combining processing unit and I/O unit in a single enclosure.
Up to four sensors can be connected enabling IT managers to choose between 17 different sensors or actuator types. These sensors can be used to monitor ambient data such as temperature, humidity or smoke as well as technical parameters and access to the IT rack.
The Basic CMC features a network interface and an intuitive web user interface. The data registered by the sensors is forwarded through network and SNMP to the administrator console, which triggers an alarm if preset thresholds are exceeded.
This means the entire IT infrastructure can be monitored from a central location with a minimum of effort.
The Basic CMC can be installed using a plug and play system, negating the need for complicated programming and wiring.
The Basic CMC joins the rest of the Rittal family that includes the CMC-TC for large infrastructure installations and the recently launched wireless CMC, which cuts down on cabling and installation costs in the data centre.
