Easy Deployment – Wireless monitoring can convey facility data without having to run a cable across rooms, through walls, floors, ceilings. CEG’s wireless solutions also utilize plug-and-play technology, including auto-discovery and configuration, further reducing installation time.
Scalable – Multiple sensors can be connected to a single node and numerous nodes can comprise a single network. There’s no need to run additional wiring to accommodate network expansion.
Cost Effective – In addition to lower deployment and scalability costs, wireless monitoring sensors are decreasing in cost as the technology becomes more widely adopted.
Extended Range – Advances in high-performance routers have significantly increased the range of wireless transmission, thereby decreasing the need to install repeaters and signal boosters.
Security – Hacking into a wired monitoring system is extremely difficult. Facility managers control who has access to the system and its data.
Reliability – Because they use direct physical connections, traditional wired monitoring products aren’t affected by outside influences such as walls, floors, cabinets in a facility, other electric devices. There are some environments that can only used wired monitoring due to outside RF interference.
Cost Effective – With no batteries to replace, wired sensors typically enjoy a longer active life than their wireless counterparts.
Actionable Information – Software and sensors with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms will make sense of all your environmental data and make it actionable, especially when it comes to removing thermal risk and optimizing the cooling infrastructure of a data center.
