Remote Management

  • Rack Monitor/Master Controller Module (Network interface Card) is mounted within a Cabinet or Aisle Cocoon to monitor the environmental conditions within that Cocoon/cabinet and/or adjacent cabinets. A maximim of 24 off cabinets to each Master Unit
  • This module has been designed to be used as the gateway to a suite of Cannon modules and provides full remote access to in excess of 100 off cabinet door locks, PDUs, temerature sensors etc. using just one IP address
  • The module is designed to be connected to a standard 10/100 base TX Full Ethernet Network Switch by way of a standard Cat5 patch lead
  • Each module is assigned a user configurable static IP address which enables the user to access the installation from anywhere in the world via the standard TCP/IP protocol. Using the provided Cannon T4 Data Centre Manager software allows, along with other actions, the monitoring of any SNMP traps, remotely unlock doors for engineers to enter, remote operator can see any out of tolerance conditions
  • All alarms, actions and events to access any site are recorded in a 1000 event history file for audit purposes
  • All of the module types configured within the Cocoon/ Cabinet are designed to interface with the Rack Monitor/ Master Controller, which will monitor all of the configured alarm outputs forwarding them to a remote monitoring station via SNMP
  • 10/100 to CannonGuard RS485 ‘modbus’
  • Allows up to 240 sub modules to communicate over the CG network using one IP address
  • Magnetic or screw mounting, Zero U

CannonGuard and Data Centre Manager

CannonGuard is a comprehensive suite of hardware that provides both local and remote control of every aspect of your rack cabinets or outside enclosures and data rooms. The system is ‘plug and play', modules can be used stand alone, or may be daisy chained together into a high security, resilient system with remote control from multiple locations. The modules can be accessed by a standard web browser or 3G Mobile phone. All that’s required is a CannonGuard module and a web server that runs our powerful data centre manger software, installed anywhere on your LAN or WAN. 

  • Remote data cabinet monitoring and management system
  • Simple scalable solution, one to thousands of cabinets and devices
  • Easy to use interface, any browser can be used to logon to the system including smart phones
  • Multi user roles and permissions, individual users can be given permissions to view and control specific module types and the roles they can perform, for instance Building management can view the cooling performance of a water cooled cold aisle - but not see any power or access devices
  • Local and remote audit trail, every action on the browser screen and at the racks is monitored and audited, every access event can be recorded with CCTV, audit trails can be automatically archived to remote or local servers
  • Automatic site monitoring & drill down, alarms from sites can be seen as groups of sites and the status viewed as a whole, complete buildings power usage can be shown at the top level of a group. Maximum and minimum temperatures and power are always shown
  • Simple point and click interface, any cabinet with a fault shows up red, hover over it for status information and click on it to investigate further
  • Easy set up of keypads and biometric access devices, send new codes to all access devices in groups with one menu. Send Biometric templates to thousands of readers across the world SNMP viewer, monitor the last 1000 SNMP alarms from a master controller, master controllers monitor 249 devices on the modbus interface they control. Quick CSV export of audits
  • A & B Total Power, Max temperature & Humidity, Row status, CCTV and access can all be viewed on one screen, CCTV can be sent to a 2nd monitor if desired
  • Cannon Data Centre Manager is a Java web server application, you can install it on a web server yourself or Cannon can provide a 1U server configured to your needs. One web server can monitor many thousands of cabinets
