Data Center Monitoring with Differential Pressure Sensors
Impurities in the air, such as dust, pollen, salt in the air, and pollution particulates, can wreak havoc on the sensitive electronics in data centers. This means having a properly working air filter is crucial. But how can you be sure the air filter is working properly? By monitoring the difference in pressure on the two sides of an air filter, a differential air pressure sensor can help detect two different issues. First, if there is too much difference in air pressure, this can mean the filter is clogged and needs to be changed. Second, if there isn’t enough difference between the two measurements, this could indicate a possible tear or hole in the filter. Not only does this ensure the air quality of a data center is up to standards, it also helps save money, as the air filters will only be replaced when necessary and not before.
