Until now, environmental monitoring required the deployment of a dedicated environment or building monitoring system at very high cost. To help make BMS-style device monitoring affordable at smaller remote sites, Chloride North America suggests the use of its Environment Sensor accessory module as an affordable add-on to any Chloride UPS systems fitted with company’s ManageUPS NET adapter, an SNMP/WEB card with event logging, network server shutdown, and other features. Conventionally, the Environmental Sensor is to continuously monitor ambient temperature and relative humidity levels in UPS rooms, communications closets, or IT racks fitted with  Chloride UPS and ManageUPSnet adapter.
