Differential Air Pressure Sensor
RF Code’s R160 Differential Air Pressure Sensor monitors and
reports the differential air pressure reading between two points
(e.g., above vs. below a raised floor or room vs. plenum). While
the pressure ranges found in the data center can exceed 0-0.5"
H20/0-125 Pa, the pressure differentials found in the plenum are
often only 0.01" H20/2.5 Pa, requiring a sensor to be both accurate
and precise in order to assure proper monitoring. Periodically
reporting its unique ID along with the sensor data observed by
the tag, the R160 is designed for use in combination with an RF
Code fixed reader infrastructure and the RF Code software stack
(Zone Manager, Sensor Manager or Asset Manager).
The R160 sensor is housed in an impact-resistant, flame-retardant
ABS plastic enclosure that can be mounted with strong adhesive
on the back of the case, or via hardware/screws or zip-ties through
the mounting holes. The unit ships with 8 feet of flexible tubing
to achieve physical separation between the +/- sensor terminals.
The tag is designed for years of reliable performance with a battery
life that exceeds 5 years in most deployment environments. The
tag is powered by three (3) CR2032 replaceable batteries with
a very low duty cycle and a 10-second beacon rate. The R160’s
form factor ensures clear signal transmission in high-density
deployments. Featuring a low-battery alert, the tag will continue
to report pressure data for at least three months following the
initial alert. After that, the tag will broadcast its unique ID
and a low battery indication with each beacon, but will not report
pressure data until the batteries are replaced.
