Adhesive Temperature Indicator Strips
Self-adhesive temperature sensors easily attach to any smooth surface
- equipment, racks, blanking panels, cabinets, walls - and provide continuous readout.
These inexpensive thin-film sensor strips allow convenient monitoring
of all your equipment.
The latest standards established by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and equipment manufacturers suggest a low end operating temperature of 18°C (64.4 °F) and a high end operating temperature of 27°C (80.6 °F). The recommended environment range is 20-25°C (68 to 77 °F, dry bulb temperature) and a relative humidity (RH) range of 40 to 55%. For more details, please refer to the ASHRAE book on “Design considerations for Datacom Equipment Centers” for details on data center type, altitude, recommended vs allowable, etc...
- Strips measure 7" x 3/4"
- Temperature measurements between 60 and 90 degrees
How to Read a Temperature Strip
If the cell is illuminated green, that's the correct temp. If two cells are illuminated, the temp is between the two (typically a blue and red/brown). The cells change color from red to green to blue as they go from warm to cool.
