Modius® to showcase new Environmental Management Solution at Data Center World Global Conference

The OpenData Environmental Management Module (EMM) provides the foundation of a recently announced joint offering with Emerson for the Internet of Things (IoT).

 

SAN FRANCISCO – April 17th, 2015 - Modius Inc., a recognized leader in data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solutions, today announced that it would be demonstrating its new  Environmental Management Module (EMM)  at the Data Center World Global Conference, April 19 – 23, in Las Vegas, NV.  OpenData v3.7 Environmental Management Module provides data center managers and facility operators with two critical capabilities; 1). Unified monitoring and analysis of environmental conditions in mixed sensor installations and 2). Visual playback of environmental conditions to support optimization initiatives and root-cause analysis of environmental anomalies.

The Modius Environmental Management Module for OpenData v3.7 collects data in real-time from a combination of wired, wireless, and embedded sensors, creating a flexible sensor array to monitor and measure temperature, humidity, pressure and power.  This module provides the foundation for a recently announced collaboration with Emerson to offer an IoT solution for environmental monitoring based on Emerson’s Therm-O-Disc (TOD) WirelessHART™ sensors and the Modius OpenData DCIM platform.  OpenData EMM provides zone-level performance metrics to support environmental decision-making and superior automation of climate control systems.

“Many companies don’t need the expense and complexity of a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solution to understand how to cool their equipment” added Mr. Compiano.  “With OpenData EMM, you can collect data in real-time from your sensors arrays, make adjustments based on actual data collected during peak, idle and normal operating conditions, and then closely monitor the resulting conditions.  We are very pleased to be collaborating with Emerson for a joint offering based on our OpenData technology and excited to be sharing it with the attendees of Data Center World.”

Conference attendees can demo OpenData EMM at the company’s booth #1331and also review  recent enhancements for Asset Management.
 
The OpenData v3.7 Environmental Management Module is available for immediate shipping. For more information on the capabilities of this new software module for the OpenData platform, please visit our website at http://www.modius.com/Environnmental_Management.
