Visibility/Reliability/Resiliency

SynapSense Nodes

Data Center reliability is one of the fundamental benefits SynapSense brings to each customer project. Energy savings can only take place once reliability has become inherent in the operations of a mission-critical facility. The SynapSense Wireless Monitoring & Cooling Control Solution enhances reliability by providing visibility to environmental and operating conditions across the data center floor. Granular monitoring (with tiered alerts and alarms), coupled with airflow metrics, avoid thermal risks and maintains resiliency. LiveImaging™ displays thermal maps (and movies) from hundreds or thousands of sensors for an intuitive snapshot of environmental conditions throughout the data center. Data center operators utilize LiveImaging to identify hot spots or areas of overcooling, and take actions to improve airflow management. Overall, the SynapSense Wireless Monitoring & Cooling Control Solution provides the visibility to enhance reliability. “You can’t manage what you don’t measure (and can’t see!)”

SynapSense Return on Investment

ROI/Energy Savings

The SynapSense Wireless Monitoring & Cooling Control Solution saves up to 50% of cooling energy or approximately 10-15% of overall energy usage. Prior to beginning a project, SynapSense Engineering Services provides a detailed assessment to quantify the return on investment (ROI), including the utility incentive, energy savings, CO2 reduction, and payback period. The Engineering Services team ensures delivery of the target ROI by optimizing airflow in the data center followed by the deployment and commissioning of Active Control™ (depending upon customer requirements). The Engineering Services team reviews the projected energy savings against the actual results, and consistently meets or exceeds the initial projected savings.

Ease of Use

Ease of Use

Until now, adding monitoring to provide visibility to power and cooling equipment in the data center was a wired proposition – expensive and inflexible. Now you can add a wireless sensor anywhere and measure many different variables so now you can pretty much ask, “What else do I want to know?”, and SynapSense has a cost effective, wireless solution. The SynapSense Wireless Monitoring & Cooling Control Solution utilizes non-intrusive wireless sensors to measure, monitor, and optimize power and cooling in the data center. SynapSense also leverages existing information in the data center by integrating via Modbus, BacNet (and others), to bring data into the system and display it on the SynapSense Web Console™.

Turnkey Solution

SynapSense provides the customer with a complete turnkey solution for every project to achieve the target ROI rapidly. Working closely with our customers, the Engineering Services team conducts an assessment to baseline energy usage and quantifies the energy savings opportunities. The team then initiates the optimization process by rebalancing the floor and improving overall airflow management. Once the airflow remediation is complete, the energy savings result from turning down VFD fan speeds and increasing CRAH temperature set points. Upon completion of the project, SynapSense Engineering reviews the projected energy savings against the actual results, and consistently meets or exceeds the initial projected savings.

Turnkey Solution

Simplicity and Scalability

The SynapSense Wireless Monitoring & Cooling Control Solution scales easily with the dynamic nature of the data center floor. The wireless sensor network enables customers to change the room configuration, remove racks or rows, or even add rooms. Click on the video link to learn more.
