Jacarta monitoring solutions are most often used in critical IT environments. However their range of features make them suitable for use in a wide-range of locations such as warehouses and production facilities. Whilst there are, of course, many differences in the way in which the different locations operate, the environmental risks are often similar with high/low temperature & humidity, water leaks, power failure & security breaches all likely to cause issues.
A range of sensors are available for use with Jacarta devices including the following:
- Temperature (0°C – +75°C)
- Temperature Extended Range (-40°C – +75°C)
- Thermocouple (-200°C – +500°C)
- Temperature/Humidity (0°C – +75°C & 0 – 100% )
- Water Leak Detection
- Smoke Detection
- Security Sensor (Door/Window)
- Power Failure
- PIR Motion
- Dry-Contact Cable (for connection to third-party equipment)
Other sensors available upon request. Please contact us with specific requirements.
Receive Alerts to Alarm Conditions
A key component of any monitoring system is the ability to send effective alerts in the event of potential environmental threats. Depending on the device in use, users can be alerted to problems via:
- Audio Visual Alarm Beacon
- SMS Text Messages (using optional modem)
- Telephone Voice alerts (using optional modem)
- Dry-Contact Relay Output
- SNMPset commands sent to existing systems
- On-screen Alerts
The alerting matrix featured on our iMeter and iMeter Lite allows customised alerts to be sent to key personnel. For example, in the event of a temperature-related problem, an email alert can be sent directly to the facilities manager staff, whereas a security breach may trigger a phone call to security personnel. Users can also define custom escalation procedures helping to ensure that any threats to network infrastructure are dealt with before any serious problems are caused.
Log Data For Analysis and Audit
All of Jacarta’s network-based monitoring devices offer a degree of onboard logging and graphing and are also SNMP enabled for integration into other monitoring and logging platforms. Data can be extracted for analysis and audit purposes which can lead to improvements in management and energy usage.
Below is an example graph showing historical data collected by a temperature sensor connected to the iMeter Lite device.
Integration with Facilities and BMS
In many warehouse facilities there will be existing systems such as UPS, BMS, security and fire suppression systems. Jacarta solutions can integrate with these systems in a number of ways including Modbus, SNMP & dry-contact cables.
This integration can function both ways as well, with the Jacarta solution acting as an input and/or output device. Please see below 2 examples:
As Input Device:
Connect the Jacarta device to the ‘battery-low’ dry-contact output of an onsite UPS and receive alerts via the devices alerting mechanisms in the event of the UPS battery reaching a critical level during a power failure.
As Output Device:
Connect the Jacarta device to an onsite BMS via Modbus. When a sensor connected to the device enters an alarm state the BMS can take action based upon this. One such example would be to turn off certain systems, such as water pumps, in the event of a water leak alarm. Switching to back-up lighting systems when a power failure is detected is another example.
