Chapter 1: Product Overview
Features and Benefits
The Avocent EVR1500 environmental monitor and control appliance manages
environmental conditions within a rack and/or data center through a standard
web browser or the Avocent DSView® software. By combining analog and
digital technology, the EVR1500 environmental monitor appliance collects data
from internal and external sensors, compares it to pre-configured parameters,
issues alarms, generates reports and acts on conditions and events. Multiple
users can access the appliance locally or remotely.
Access via network connection
Users can access the EVR1500 environmental monitor appliance remotely over
Ethernet from a web browser or a PC running DSView software. User PCs can
be located anywhere a valid network connection exists. No special software or
drivers are required on the attached, or host, computers. The EVR1500
environmental monitor appliance can be configured on a separate network
from your data network, allowing you to view and report your environmental
conditions even if your applications network is down. This feature is important
because loss of access to the data network could be due to adverse
environmental or security conditions.
Web-based GUI
The EVR1500 environmental monitor appliance provides an easy-to-use webbased GUI (Graphical User Interface) that enables you to configure the
network, digital and analog sensors, thresholds and alarm reports. The
software is a Java™ applet uploaded from the EVR1500 environmental monitor
appliance to a computer.
User-configurable environmental conditions
Environmental thresholds set through the web GUI trigger alarms that can be
automatically reported on the application screen, emailed, sent to a pager or sent
to an NMS (Network Management System) using SNMP (Simple Network
Management Protocol).
Internal and external sensors
The EVR1500 environmental monitor appliance provides four internal sensors:
Temperature, Humidity, Air Flow and Audio. The EVR1500 environmental
monitor appliance also supports up to eight external analog sensors, six
external digital sensors and two digital outputs. The external sensors enable
you to monitor precise locations within the rack or data center. See Figure 1.1
and the EVR1500 Environmental Monitor Appliance Features table for details.

Rack and wall mount safety considerations
•
Elevated Ambient Temperature: If installed in a closed rack assembly, the
operation temperature of the rack environment may be greater than room
ambient. Use care not to exceed the rated maximum ambient temperature
of the appliance.
•
Reduced Air Flow: Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such
that the amount of airflow required for safe operation of the equipment is
not compromised.
•
Mechanical Loading: Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be such
that a hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
•
Circuit Overloading: Consideration should be given to the connection of
the equipment to the supply circuit and the effect that overloading of
circuits might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Consider
equipment nameplate ratings for maximum current.
•
Reliable Earthing: Reliable earthing of rack mounted equipment should be
maintained. Pay particular attention to supply connections other than
direct connections to the branch circuit (for example, use of power strips).

Setting Thresholds
The Thresholds feature enables you to set thresholds for analog and digital
inputs and to configure the frequency that Email, Combination, FTP, Output
and Report to File actions are processed against the threshold. The EVR1500
environmental monitor appliance handles up to 25 thresholds.
The threshold information shown in Figure 4.1 is used to monitor a
temperature probe connected to an analog input. The threshold will monitor
the selected analog input (Analog_in01) every 60 seconds. If the value of
Analog_in01 meets or exceeds 85 degrees F, the selected Combination action
(Combo_Action1) will execute. The Combination action will execute one time
and then wait for the release value to reset. Once it is reset, the action will
execute again if 85 degrees F is exceeded. A threshold action is reset when the
temperature sensor first reports an input voltage that is less than the release
value of 75 degrees F. Once the temperature has dropped below 75 degrees F,
the action is reset.

rule. The system can handle up to 25 rules.
The rule shown in Figure 4.2 is used to control a fan connected to a digital
output. The value in the Value to test field (Temp1) is a calculation that will
equal 1 if an analog input exceeds 85 degrees F. If the analog input falls below
85 degrees F, the Temp1 calculation will equal Ø. This rule scans the Fan_
Temp calculation every 60 seconds and either turns the output connected to
the fan on (Temp1 = 1) or off (Temp1 = Ø). An output action is used to toggle
the digital output.
