Power and energy monitoring is crucial for data centres of all sizes, minimising the risk of downtime, revealing ways to reduce energy usage, and helping achieve building performance targets. Synapsys’ new SIPp power monitoring solution offers a flexible and cost-effective way to give managers all the performance data they need.

With its user-friendly graphic ‘dashboard’ display, SIPp presents real-time data in an easy-to-read format. It’s simple to select which information feeds are to feature on the dashboard, creating a customised display that gives instant access to relevant key data on a site’s power usage and performance.

The data provided by the SIPp system gives insight into actual rack power usage, key to improving a data centre’s power usage effectiveness (PUE). It promptly and accurately monitors customers’ power usage down to individual rack level, protecting the integrity and safety of the network by identifying potential uptime issues within the data centre.

Harvey Roft, managing director at Synapsys Solutions, says: “We know from our extensive experience in energy monitoring and BMS interfacing that data centres have a real need for accurate, real-time power monitoring information in a more accessible format, so we developed our new SIPp range to provide an easy-to-use, cost-effective option.”

SIPp offers a scalable hardware-only solution, with no ongoing licence or service costs. It is suitable for use as a standalone power monitoring system, and can also be connected to a BMS for integrated energy management.

The range includes options for AC power monitoring, branch circuit monitoring, and DC power monitoring, so it can be tailored to each site’s requirements. SIPp is suitable for new build projects, while its non-intrusive installation also makes it ideal for retro-fit applications.

To find out how SIPp can help you, and to enter our exclusive exhibition prize draw, come and talk to the Synapsys power monitoring experts on Stand D85 at Data Centre World, 26-27th February 2014.
