Inline Metering System (IMS)

These modules allow existing racks with installed basic power distributors to be upgraded to enable monitoring.
Overview

Monitoring is already part of the everyday routine in most data centers when it comes to system availability. For this reason you may decide to install new systems for socket strips/PDUs with integrated monitoring (Managed PDUs or Adaptive PDUs). But what do you do with existing systems in which socket strips/PDUs are usually installed without measuring functions?

Emerson Network Power's solution for this is called IMS (Inline Metering System). These modules allow existing racks with installed basic power distributors to be upgraded accordingly. As almost all server racks are supplied with an A and a B-feed, later installation is possible without interruption. The IMS modules can also be installed space-savingly inside or outside the rack, e.g. in false floor.

Knürr DI-STRIP IMS

Features:

  • Fast installation and easy data recording with graphic and numerical power consumption overview; can be retrieved via web interface.
  • The power value can be read directly on the rack, as a local display is installed in every module.
  • An N-conductor overload with 3-phase systems can be prevented, as the phase symmetry is monitored.
  • Alarm signal when incidents occur, as the threshold values (phase symmetry, bottom limit, pre-warning and alarm) can be be set flexibly.
Liebert MPX IMS

Features:

  • Liebert Rack PDUs familiar software interface, as the same communication card as with Liebert MPX/MPH is used.
  • Highest possible security and availability with an operating temperature of max. 55°C.
  • Extensive measurement functions (power, current, voltage and energy), with high measurement accuracy of up to ± -1%.
  • An N-conductor overload with 3-phase systems can be prevented, as the N-conductor current is monitored.
  • Easy connection of up to 4 Liebert MPX IMS / MPH / MPX on the network with only 1 IP address.
  • External sensors and a display can also be connected.
Knürr Modular IMS

Features:

  • Extensive measurement functions (power, current, voltage, energy and power factor), with higher measurement accuracy of up to 0.17% referring to the end value.
  • Very high input currents can be measured (up to 999A per phase via external transducer).
  • The modular setup means the solution can be adjusted customerspecific (e.g. up to 4 in-feeds per module with different input plugs or even fixed in-feed are possible).
  • Up to 75 modules can be controlled via one IP address.
  • Saving in external databases possible without additional software.
