Servers and network equipment should be kept in a clean environment at a certain temperature and humidity.
- If the temperature is too high the equipment will overheat
- If the humidity is too high you risk electronic shorts which will damage circuit boards
- If the humidity is too low the risk of static is increased which also causes circuit board failure
- A clean environment is crucial due to dust buildup stopping fans being efficient and leading to overheating problems
With an environment monitoring device, it is possible to monitor all these conditions as well as a flood indicator which can alert you so action can be taken as quickly as possible to avoid damage.
