MetricWise is a web-based appliance that collects metered information to calculate Power Utilization Effectiveness (PUE) and Data Center Infrastructure Efficiency (DCiE).
Supports up to 10 real-time meters; Calculates, displays, and logs PUE and DCiE; Stores up to two full years of historical readings; Web-based interface with dashboard views of data; Communicates with other management systems via SNMP, Modbus TCP, or BACnet TCP/IP; Optional ability to post data to a secure website that displays metrics from all participating organizations; Ensures that all datacenters are measuring using the same methods
MetricWise is designed to acquire data readings from three-phase power meters (100 amps to 2,400 amps) attached to equipment throughout the data center at key power locations. Up to 10 power meters can be associated with an individual MetricWise appliance. One 10/100BASE-T Ethernet port for connecting the monitoring device to a data centerís administrative network. MetricWise can be connected via its 9-pin EIA-232 interface port to a PC or laptop for configuration, firmware downloads, and troubleshooting. MetricWise can also function as a Modbus slave via its onboard two-wire EIA-485 interface port.
