Raritan/RF Code data center monitoring solution aims to cut energy without wires

Ryan Arsenault Ryan Arsenault Profile: Ryan Arsenault

RF Code and Raritan announced a new data center monitoring product aimed at cutting energy usage and overall costs with more granular power usage data – without the use of wired Ethernet connections.

The RF Code R170 PDU Tag for Raritan combines RF Code’s wire-free monitoring with Raritan’s intelligent rack PDUs, with the sensor tag plugging into Raritan’s Dominion PX rack PDUs. IP address association, configuration or maintenance is not needed. The sensor instead immediately collects power usage data, including RMS current and voltage, from the PDU, transmitting the data to an RF Code reader. The data is then sent to RF Code’s Sensor Manager software, where the data is analyzed and the admin is given a glimpse into the power utilization of the data center. All of this is done without wired Ethernet connections, which the companies claim are not cost- and time-friendly.

The RF Code sensor tag has a list price of $99, and the Raritan intelligent PDUs that the tags plug into start at $449.
