FAQs

General

The Interactive Data Hall is a software program designed to store and visualize multiple QuickScan files. Users can build their own data hall – by themselves or with Purkay Labs’ assistance- with racks, aisles, perforated tiles, PDUs, CRAC units. Then users can upload various sets of data that has been collected.

Users can:

  • View a bird’s eye view layout of the data hall
  • Identify Hot and Cold Aisles
  • Sort through Maximum, Minimum or Average temperatures
  • Change Top, Middle, Bottom or Average view
  • Filter data for temperatures above, below, or between user defined or ASHRAE ranges
  • Display Perforated Tile Openings (25%, 50%, 75% and 100%)- Add custom notes to individual tiles

Hardware

Purkay Labs recommends using two operators and estimating about 1 minute per cabinet for data collection. Users should note the following:-TH1 Module Heights on the rod-Tile Size-Grid Layout (Tile Name Convention, Top Left Hall Coordinate, Bottom Right Hall Coordinate, Start and Stop/Pause tile for each aisle,-Scan Direction (Note first scan location for each aisle, Pause or Stop)

The Interactive Data Hall is based on the tile layout of your facility. In some instances, cabinets will overlap two tiles. Please place the AUDIT-BUDDY in the middle of the tile, rather than the middle of the cabinet to ensure consistency. Purkay Labs uses the Grid convention to orient users while creating data hall layout and uploading files. Users should choose one orientation and one type of scan path to ensure consistency and accuracy.

Yes, the Interactive Data Hall program can use both AUDIT-BUDDY (.QPL files) or WIFI-BUDDY data.

Data

Yes, users can create full hot and cold aisle layouts as well as mark out CRAC units, PDUs, Walls, Blank areas. Users can also indicate perforated tile openings (25%, 50%, 7566%, or 100%).Not Open) 

Yes. The program enables the user to delete and add cabinets at will during the creation period. Even after the data hall is completed, the user will be able to go back and delete cabinets if need be. Please note that this capability is enabled if the user purchases the full program.
