ORLANDO,Fla.,Sep 12,2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) –
Code,Inc. today announced the latest versions of its market-leading asset
tracking and environmental
monitoring solutions. RF Code solutions reduce the time and cost of
tracking and managing IT assets and the environments in which they
reside. See a video
about the new software.
Among the new features in both Asset Manager and Sensor Manager are
advanced event notification and configurable visual dashboards to
display key asset and environmental data. In addition,Asset Manager now
provides GPS reader support,making it possible to track,in real time,
assets in mobile locations such as trucks and ships.
Moreover,Sensor Manager now incorporates Ancis,Inc.’s Rack Cooling
Index (RCI) and Rack Return Index (RTI) performance metrics. (Register
for a webinar featuring Magnus Herrlin,developer of these metrics.)
These are complementary metrics for understanding data center air
management:IT cooling (reliability) and CRAC efficiency.
“The need for absolute accuracy around a company’s IT asset inventory is
emerging as a top priority for leading companies,”said Chris Gaskins,
vice president,Product Development at RF Code. “While the need for
critical environmental and power monitoring data is already top-of-mind
for today’s data center managers. We’re meeting these twin challenges
with an open approach that lets customers take advantage of our
solutions in a way that meets their needs:as standalone solutions or
integrated into their existing DCIM,EAM,ERP,BMS,Help Desk or other
About the New Features
Event notification. Notifications are sent when an event,such as
the movement of an asset,needs to trigger a consequent action by a
third party application such as a work order system. For example,a work
order application may rely on IT asset movement data from Asset Manager
as part of its “decision-making”in concert with a change management
order. By simplifying how data is exchanged between these applications,
RF Code makes it easy for consuming applications to get timely data on
which to base an action. Some examples are:
When temperature values change and a DCIM is notified
When doors open or close and surveillance application is notified
Easy user-configurable dashboards. With these latest software
versions,dashboards are now much more powerful,displaying summary data
in a variety of user-chosen graphical formats. Using multiple types of
widgets,users can easily create standard dials,LED dials,LCD
displays,graphs,bar charts,graphs,asset grids and more to display
aggregated data that all internal users can view. Moreover,users have
full control over these widgets,allowing them to determine colors,
sizing,fonts,numerical range and more.
This is especially useful in a data center or network operations center,
where a lot of information is constantly being communicated in real
time. Having the ability to create a visual dashboard that displays
summary data in an easily viewed format,such as a key performance
indicator (KPI),is an efficient way to telegraph this information
without creating information overload.
GPS reader support. RF Code’s M250
reader now supports a Garmin GPS device,which provides real-time
GPS data to the reader. When coupled with a GSM,G3 or G4 communication
device,the GPS-enabled reader can be installed on mobile locations such
as trucks,fork-lifts or ships that house tagged assets. Once installed,
the reader then reports precise geospatial location information about
the mobile location and its asset contents back to the RF Code software.
Information is dynamically updated as the mobile assets move.
RCI &RTI metric support. RCI is a measure of compliance with
ASHRAE or NEBS intake temperature guidelines expressed as a percentage.
RTI is a measure of net by-pass or net recirculation air expressed as a
percentage. By leveraging these metrics,Sensor Manager helps provide
data that will sustain optimal IT equipment reliability and avoid
