Award-winning Starline solution monitors busway feed terminals temperature to pre-empt power issues in the data centre

The Starline track busway power distribution system for data centres has been enhanced with integrated terminal lug temperature monitors. These sensors for the busway feed terminals are designed to seamlessly integrate into the Starline Critical Power Monitor (CPM) solution platform. These provide real-time temperature data and can be trended over time to determine if loose connections are causing the terminals to heat up. When this occurs and pre-defined thresholds are even slightly exceeded, automatic alerts will notify the data centre or facility management personnel of a potentially problematic scenario and enable them to take precautions before a failure occurs. Therefore the functionality of the terminal lug temperature monitors significantly increases the early-stage protection against power disruptions in the data centre. This innovation has been recently awarded with the DCS Award 2018 in the category „Data Centre Power Product of the Year“, and is now available from Daxten, a leading specialist in the optimisation of data centres.

Traditionally and still to this day, data centre and facility experts periodically IR scan their feed terminal lugs to identify potential loose connections they need to rely on finding this issue during their scanning activities as this is a one point in time activity. With the option to add temperature sensors to their busway feed terminals, Starline users get this critical data delivered in real-time and all the time. The temperature readings can be evaluated against electrical loading, and trend analysis can be conducted to determine the steady-state operating temperatures. Any deviations can easily be identified at an early stage. This provides adequate timing to investigate elevated temperatures and to carry out the necessary corrective actions to prevent problems.

With both Modbus serial and Ethernet-based connectivity options, such as Modbus RTU/TCP, SNMP, BacNet TCP, the measurement data can easily be integrated into a wide variety of third party DCIM or building management system (BMS). By supporting these systems and multiple communication protocols, the Critical Power Monitor solution with integrated terminal lug temperature sensors puts instant monitoring data at the data centre professional‘s fingertips and provides crucial data for faster and better decisions, which ultimately lead to safer data centres.
