Remote monitoring devices from Didactum

Many environmental factors will play a very important role in your data rooms and server cabinets such as temperature and humidity variations, water damage, loss of air flow, smoke damage, power failures and many others. Therefor when these environmental factors reach a critical state in your infrastructures they can cause catastrophic failures which can lead to not only loss of revenue but damage to your company’s renown. 

When these environmental factors mentioned above are not monitored and are allowed to go undetected without warning, most importantly in your critical central operations, server rooms etc., this can cause massive disruptions and cost-intensive downtime. Therefore it is necessary to not only have remote monitoring hardware in place that is reliable and flexible but also easy to install. 

The monitoring device must be non-stop available with a built-in automatic notification system. It also needs to be easily programmed to send out early warning alerts when thresholds are eached, or when factors become critical presenting the opportunity to be proactive. These early warnings and critical alerts need to be easily sent via email, SMS or by SNMP traps. Automatic actions, such as relay switching, should also be supported. 

It is also important that this monitoring appliance is completely SNMP compliant so that it can be easily integrated into any NMS (Network Management System) that can query it via SNMP get using a standard OID library and MIB file.

Ethernet based remote monitoring solutions from manufacturer Didactum

The E.U made remote environmental monitoring devices from Didactum offer among other features a simple to setup and use network based monitoring solution which provides non-stop monitoring of many environmental factors via your web browser. 

Any installation of software on a PC or server is not required because the IP-based remote monitoring appliances from Didactum work independently with their own built in IP based web interface. The remote monitoring appliances from Didactum have also been subjected to a factory calibration so that each of the Ethernet-based sensor recordings can be started immediately.

Quick and easy setup of Didactum remote monitoring units

Per the Didactum monitoring appliances plug-and-play feature all of Didactum`s SNMP-enabled sensors will be auto detected when plugged into any of the sensor ports of the Didactum controller.

Didactum´s intelligent sensors are then automatically displayed in web interface for easy configuration of each sensors thresholds and alerts.You can even create group of sensors for quick configuration. All SNMP-compatible sensors that can be connected to Didactum monitoring appliance can be extended using cheap RJ-11 cable. This provides flexibility for installing the sensors in your required monitored infrastructure.

After the Didactum monitoring controller is connected to a network switch or network hub, you can easily access via web browser for easy configuration. Each sensor connected to Didactum controller can be configured individually from within the controllers HTLM5-based multi-lingual web interface. You can easily set up your own sensor thresholds as required. The integrated logic scheme supports easy set up of comprehensive alert notifications. All events are stored in integrated syslog.

Example: Remote Temperature Monitoring

When the temperature level has reached a warning or critical level an individual text and the actual temperature can be sent via email, SMS (via GSM modem) or SNMP trap to several recipients. The temperature alarm from the production, telecommunication or server room can be also trigger a siren for an audio alert so you and your staff can respond more quickly to critical environmental conditions. The Didactum Monitoring System 500 II has integrated relays. For example it can turn on or off cooling equipment such as fans or ventilators when unexpected temperature levels are reached. These desired actions are easily stored in the web interface of the Didactum Monitoring System 500 II. The Didactum IP-based monitoring unit is simple to use, fully SNMPv1/v2c/v3 enabled IP based environmental monitoring devices. They are specifically designed for the remote monitoring and remote control within your business-critical infrastructure which include the query of the connected Didactum sensors via the TCP/IP network or Internet.
