RF Code’s wire-free environmental monitoring solution fully integrates
with the APC (American Power Conversion) NetBotz solution. The
integration is accomplished in a seamless manner bringing the
power and flexibility of wire-free sensors such as temperature,
humidity, door position, dry contact, and fluid detection to the
APC NetBotz solution.
The RF Code wire-free sensors are easy to deploy and ideal for
deployment scenarios too complex for traditional wired sensors.
The integration increases the capabilities of an APC customer’s
existing management & monitoring system investments by providing
real time, wire-free environmental monitoring capabilities. RF
Code’s integration with APC NetBotz is included free of charge
in the Asset Manager, Sensor Manager, and Zone Manager products.
Ideal for monitoring in real time the environmental conditions
in IT areas such as data centers, IT rooms and offices, RF Code’s
completely wire-free approach to environmental monitoring is an
affordable, flexible alternative to traditional wired environmental
The integration is accomplished by utilizing the NetBotz Pod
Sharing capabilities which allows the NetBotz appliances to connect
to the RF Code software system (either Zone Manager, Sensor Manager,
or Asset Manager). Once the link is established via TCP/IP connection,
each RF Code wire-free sensor is available as a remote device
(sensor) for the NetBotz appliances and can be “shared” just like
remote sensor pods on other NetBotz appliances. Once the configuration
of the share is complete, the RF Code wire-free sensors become
“Shared Sensors” allowing them to be utilized by the NetBotz system
in an identical fashion to native NetBotz sensors including thresholds,
graphing, reporting, etc. Furthermore, if an APC InfraStruXure
Central platform is being used for centralized management and
monitoring, all of the RF Code wire-free sensor information will
automatically be made available to InfraStruXure Central as well.
