SmartSensors Deliver More Valuable Insights about Your Data Center


Our comprehensive set of SmartSensors monitor the environment within a data center. They are engineered to facilitate easy deployment while providing the most accurate data and insight into your operation.  When mission critical IT hardware is your responsibility, it’s important to be aware of environmental hazards that may affect or jeopardize the performance and lifespan of IT assets. SmartSensors enable you to instrument your white space environment with the latest sensor technology directly from a Xerus enabled power distribution or rack management device.

The sensors provide real-time environment alerts, letting you know when something is astray, increasing the response time to remediate critical risks. You can easily recognize hot spots, optimally cool equipment, and prevent costly downtime.

SmartSensors enable a seamless connection directly to your existing rack power infrastructure providing a faster, easier deployment with substantial cost savings. Have a worry-free deployment knowing the sensors can easily retrofit your infrastructure. With the highest-level metering accuracy in its class, SmartSensors provide better insights for smarter actionable decisions.

  • Save on cooling by confidently raising data center temperatures
  • Stay alerted 24/7 of service-impacting conditions
  • Obtain the right insight to drive strategic decisions on cooling design and containment
  • Scale new implementations under a single reliable technology platform
  • Get a clearer vision into your environment with higher accuracy sensors
  • Improve field response-time to alerts with status LEDs

Highly Accurate Environment Monitoring

SmartSensors are designed with the latest, most high-tech metering components to prolong its lifespan, improve reliability, and ensure it runs efficiently.

Dual RJ45 Connectors

Dual RJ45 connectors ease the installation and servicing of sensor packages without having to rewire the rack, saving on time and maintenance costs.

Easy to Deploy within Existing IT Infrastructures

SmartSensors are plug-and-play ready with a Xerus enabled power management device including PX intelligent Rack PDUs, compact PDUs, Smart Rack Controllers, Inline Meters, Hybrid Rack Transfer Switches, and Branch Circuit Monitors making it incredibly easy to install and deploy without disrupting operations.

Support for Customizable Configuration with Single Bus/String Technology

Offering the highest flexibility of deployment, SmartSensors can be cascaded in a single bus/string structure to instrument entire rows of your data center with different types of sensors. Cascaded sensors are linked with standard Cat5/6 cables and connected through to a Xerus enabled power distribution or rack management device to ensure comprehensive measurement and monitoring.

More Information



The DX2-T1 can be placed at the front or rear of the rack to monitor cool air entering and/or hot air being expelled to ensure proper containment.1


The DX-VBR detects shock and vibration over a wide range of frequencies.


The Water/Leak Floor series (WSF) detect the presence of water. The Water/Leak Rope series (WSC) also detects the presence of water as well as marking the specific location of the leak.

rack inlet temperature and humidity

The DX2-T3H1 strings together 3 sensor heads, making it easy to mount them at the bottom, middle, and top of the cool air inlet side as per ASHRAE2 guidelines.


The DX2-AF1 meters airflow in plenum space (areas that are involved in the circulation of airflow), such as under a raised floor or just above the perforated tiles.


The DX2-T1DP1 measures the temperature and meters differential air pressure above and below a raised floor, or between hot and cold aisles to prevent thermal leaks.

contact closure

The DX2-CC2 detects the open-and-close and on/off status of connected third-party door position, door lock, and vibration detectors/switches.
