“I thought we could get by with basic metering and NTP time sync, but then we had an incident. The CyTime SER-3200 gave us the data to reconstruct why our transfer scheme switched over to generator power. Now I specify all SER devices with 1ms accuracy.“
Electrical power distribution systems designed for data centers are complex. To achieve near-flawless uptime, power systems are designed with multiple sources and redundancy. Data center electrical power monitoring systems (EPMS) must provide pertinent data about normal operations as well as forensics when abnormal conditions are detected. To ensure reliable power, root-cause analysis is used to understand the sequence of events—not only for disaster recovery—but to diagnose any abnormal condition, long before these lead to a total outage.
