Latest News

July 2015: We were recently surprised to find out that Chrome has stopped supporting Java in their browser as standard.

Whilst this may not affect normal day-to-day web browsing it will affect your use of the interSeptor and interSeptor Pro as Java is used on these products to perform tasks such as refreshing the Comprehensive View automatically or providing the Java Dashboard or History and Extended History graphs.

This does not affect the core functionality of your interSeptor or interSeptor Pro at all and all your important alerts will still be sent.
Please note that Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer still fully support Java (you will just need to add your device to the security exception list).

There is more information from Java HERE (new tab).

We are currently looking at ways in which we can minimise these issues with future firmware updates and will keep you updated of any new releases. If you require any assistance at all please don't hesitate to contact us.

iMS  Power Management Software for the Data Centre

The iMeter Management Software (iMS) is an extremely powerful data collection, analytical and reporting software suite that enables IT and Facilities personnel to manage data centre power usage more efficiently.
Power and environmental data can be viewed and analysed in meaningful and intuitive formats
so that decisions aimed at reducing power costs and improving operational efficiency can be made.

Effective power management can only be carried out by monitoring power consumption down to rack level.
However, the task of being able to collate, manipulate and effectively analyse the huge amounts of data generated by monitoring to rack level is colossal.
iMS will enable you to quickly and easily identify which racks use the most power, understand more readily why your power usage 'is what it is', and where power savings can potentially be made.
Consumption can then be tracked over time to ensure that data centre power costs are minimised as far as possible.

• iMS monitors the Jacarta iMeter and its attached sensors to collect all required sensor data
        – power (current, voltage),   temperature,   humidity
• Power usage, temperature, etc. can be monitored down to rack level
• Analysis can be carried out on specific sensors or groups of sensors and over user defined time periods
• Data can be analysed by data collection interval: Hour, day, week, month, quarter or year
• Minimum, maximum and average readings can be produced for analysis
• Carbon footprint and kWh data can be reported and graphed to provide an indication of power consumption and costs
• Reports can be formalised in pdf, html and Excel formats
• Data can be viewed in an extensive variety of chart formats (bar graph, line graph, etc.)

Power Analysis

Data centre power analysis can be carried out down to rack level using a variety of iMS options:

Power Analysis  Data centre power analysis can be carried out down to rack level using a variety of iMS options:

Power Pivot enables you to manipulate the data into whatever time period for whatever sensors (of the same type) you require. Minimum and maximum values can be viewed as well as averages for specific time periods.

Power Chart facilitates a graphical representation of your required data in Bar, Area, Column, Line or Pie chart form.

Consumption Chart   facilitates presentation of the power consumption data in your required chart format.
