EkkoSense has reached a milestone for its temperature and humidity sensors, with the company having surpassed 100,00 installations for its sensors in data centres around the world. 

Forming part of the EkkoSense Critical Things family of data centre sensors, these products offer real-time monitoring and planning of data centre power, cooling and space, providing rack-level and cooling unit thermal data via secure 128-bit AES encryption into EkkoSense’s EkkoSoft Critical cloud-based 3D visualisation software.

Real-time data collected from the EkkoSensor range of IoT-enabled wireless thermal sensors and EkkoAir wireless cooling duty sensors - that track realtime cooling duty loads for any CRAC/AHU unit - are collected and forwarded by the EkkoHub wireless data receiver. This can support data from up to 500 wireless EkkoSensors within a 20m radius, allowing EkkoSense to provide data centre operators with thermal insights right down to an individual rack-level. This critical data can then be analysed within EkkoSoft Critical to provide a fully-modelled 3D view of the data centre’s current cooling, power and space performance.

“Our EkkoSensor range of sensors play a key role in helping EkkoSense customers to monitor, manage and maximise their data centre performance, and it’s great that we’ve now hit the 100,000 mark for sensor deployments,” commented David Corder, head of engineering at EkkoSense. 

“With our low-cost EkkoSensor family, we’re successfully disrupting the traditional sensor cost model and making the real-time thermal management of critical facilities such as data centres a reality.

Corder added, “Reaching the 100,000 EkkoSensor deployment mark is impressive – especially now we are exporting the hardware range internationally. After extensive R&D we are delighted to be offering our new range of easy to install Critical Things sensors and hubs to provide rack level and cooling unit level thermal data via secure 128 bit AES encryption into the EkkoSoft Critical cloud based software. We’ve just released version 6 of EkkoSoft Critical and it is great to now be offering new improved hardware to our customers as part of our continual improvement goals.”
