EPC Solutions Taiwan (Taiwan) has developed a new DCIM solution with fully passive RFID tags and sensors from Farsens (Spain). EPC was already offering a DCIM solution based on RFID tags that provided inventory control and process automation via the unique ID associated to RFID tags. Now EPC has included RFID sensor tags that do not require batteries to monitor temperature, pressure and humidity of equipment remotely.
The DCIM solution is an intelligent battery-free RFID system composed of a patented flexible antenna and passive metal tags. The system provides not only assets inventory status and location, but also temperature, humidity and pressure monitoring of the environment on a real time basis for the data center. ‘These RFID systems enhance reliability and effectiveness of critical IT systems, increase the operational efficiency and achieve significant milestones in Green IT initiatives’, Edward says.
