Data centre shows spike interest in power monitoring

Posted on: November 26th, 2014 by Tom No Comments

November’s two data centre shows saw a spike of interest in our solutions for improved power monitoring and energy efficiency.

Exhibiting at Dublin’s DataCentres Ireland and Excel London’s DatacenterDynamics Converged, we were able to show delegates the benefits on offer from our specially designed SIPp solution for power monitoring and SIPd data analytics portal for monitoring and control.

SIPp is a simple, low cost hardware-based power monitoring solution specifically for data centres. Designed to help minimise downtime and maximise reliability and performance, SIPp offers security, compliance and savings.

With options for monitoring AC power, branch circuit and DC power, the system can deliver detailed data down to rack level and quickly identifies any power supply issues. It can also integrate with a BMS and landlords’ billing software for power consumption invoicing.

Our SIPd data analytics portal helps improve data centre energy performance by collating real-time information from a building management system (BMS) and integrating with external analytics for data mining – fine tuning control strategies to maximise efficiency.

With its large volume capability and high speed operation, SIPd enables fast identification of changes in building energy usage and either automatic or manual adjustments which can reduce costs and improve efficiency and compliance with environmental legislation.

In the latest issue of Modern Building Services magazine Matt Gardner, business development manager for Synapsys explores the world of big data.

Putting big data to practical use

Being able to draw on information from a variety of source makes it possible to run buildings more efficiently. But how to handle all that data and put it to best use?

Better information is supposed to make life easier, isn’t it? The trouble is, it’s all very well having it, but all too often today’s ‘big data’ simply seems to present us with the problem of how best to use it. But pulling complex information from a BMS together into a useful format is about to become even easier, and making this information public can make a real difference to a building’s energy performance by encouraging behavioural change.
