Isolated Temperature Sensor Operating Range: -40 to 125 deg C -40 to 248 deg F
Quickly and easily identify temperature status and potential issues from across the data center.

PTS Data Center Solutions innovative patent-pending technology couples a series of 8 temperature sensors with an array of high intensity LEDs. This design provides the appearance of a “live” CFD by visually displaying a range of cool (blue) to hot (red) and a blend of 129 colors in between.

The Aurora is the perfect self-policing, real-time troubleshooting tool to clearly identify potential cooling or heat-related issues. Data Centers are dynamic environments, so the instantaneous feedback is invaluable when monitoring changes or validating best-practice improvements.

Aurora is extremely accurate because it measures air temperature, not surface temperature. The 3 User-Selectable Sensitivity Settings allow you to fine tune the monitored temperature range of the full 129-color spectrum. Because temperature is monitored over the entire height of the cabinet, Aurora is perfect for Aisle Containment and areas susceptible to temperature stratification.

Optional Wireless Communication and Management Interface enables the temperature readings for all 8 sensors per strip to be captured for trending and alerting purposes.

Additional Features

  • PTS-Aurora-transceiver-module-full
    Transceiver Module

    8 temperature sensors are spaced 8” apart offering ample coverage for traditional cabinet doors or open frame racks. Sensors start 4.5” from bottom of unit and end at 60.5”.

  • Temperature sensors are thermally isolated to read air temperature and not the mounting surface or internal circuitry temperature, ensuring accurate air temperature readings.
  • 64 color-changing LED lights represent temperature readings through a broad spectrum of 129 colors.
  • 3 user-selectable temperature sensitivity ranges that allow the Aurora to be used in a wide variety of customer environments.
  • Adjacent color gradients are smoothed between varying temperature sensors readings.
  • Mounts to the face or door of any style cabinet 40U or higher
  • Physical Dimensions: 69.38”L x 1.75”W x 0.45”T
  • Auto-Switching Power Supply for 100V-240V operation. Select 5-15P Input cord for 100-120V operation or C14 Input cord for 200-240V operation.
  • Electrical Load: Approximately 15W
  • Optional wireless communications

Sensor Mapping Tool

Sensor Mapping Tool

Have you ever forgotten where you placed something? We understand that building a sensor network takes time and effort to place your sensors where they are most effective while maintaining the ability to transmit reliably. Our system gives you the ability to upload a building schematic or blueprint and map out where sensors are placed. By clicking on the sensor graphics within this tool you have immediate access to the sensors last reading and configuration data.

  • Upload any graphic in jpg, gif or png format
  • Sensors on map allow single click access to sensor information
  • Multiple maps can be created (ex. multiple floors buildings)
