Monitoring and presentation of data of the GUDE sensors by nicedoku monitoring ensures optimal availability and operability of the AV+ systems

Our AV+ installations are living systems. We expect optimal functionality, availability and operational safety. Proactive monitoring helps us meet these expectations. The company planspur netdesign gmbh offers with nicedoku a professional AV+ monitoring system. In combination with the GUDE PDUs and sensor solutions, the crucial factors “climate” and “energy” can be covered in no time at all.

Life expectancy and availability

In order for the installed hardware to be available reliably and over the long term, the ambient temperature during operation plays a decisive role. Increased ambient temperatures can lead to unforeseen behavior or malfunction on many devices; also hardware life expectancy drops significantly with each C °. By continuously monitoring these values, it is also possible to detect nonlinear factors such as changes in temperature due to solar radiation or load capacity that would otherwise not be recognizable at first glance.

PDU and Sensor Solutions from GUDE

As running system or as new installation, many customers rely on products of the company GUDE Systems. For all installations, hot-pluggable sensors can easily be connected to the power distribution units (PDUs) with little effort. Immediately you have the parameters temperature and humidity in view. For both product types, IP power distribution systems and cable sensors, GUDE has a wide product range in its portfolio.

Temperature in target range: Everything is OK!


Temperature above target range: Time to act!
