Dynamic Heat Map
The Dynamic Heat Map is a powerful software program that uses real-time data to show the heat distribution in a given space. Quickly visualize the airflow in your room to pinpoint problem areas with this cost-effective solution.
What is a Dynamic Heat Map?
The Dynamic Heat Map is a software program that shows the change in heat distribution over time.
Whether it’s looking at a plan view of a room, or profile of a rack, users can easily identify potential problems areas.
How it Works
The Dynamic Heat Map combines the best of Purkay Labs’ environmental monitors
and our cutting edge software to visualize your airflow.
Step 1: SET UP SENSORS
Deploy multiple AUDIT-BUDDY stands across the room. Each stand contains three sensors to
measure at three different heights. The number of stands depends on the fidelity of information required.
Step 2: COLLECT DATA
Whether you buy, rent or use Purkay Labs’ Service, Purkay Labs will generate a custom Dynamic Heat Map report, as well as individual .gif file(s) that can be used in reports and presentations.
Once the data is collected, Purkay Labs will generate a custom layout of the facility.
Then, our team members will generate a Dynamic Heat Map, and Report.
VISUALIZE YOUR AIRFLOW
Now you don’t have to rely on models to predict what might happen. The Dynamic Heat Map uses real data to show what is actually happening in the facility, so you can react quickly to real life problems.
Whether you are in the commissioning stage or in a fully operational data center, the Dynamic Heat Map helps to identity how airflow will affect the room.
ALL the information in one report
With the Dynamic Heat Map Service, Purkay Labs will give you the visual representation of your room, as well as a written report detailing the environmental findings. This is the easiest way to get a baseline of your environment, without significant investment in sensors, monitoring software or complex integration.

There are multiple types of heat maps. You select whether you want a dynamic or static map, and whether you want a plan or aisle view. Whether you need to see the temperature distribution change over time, or see a single point in time, Purkay Labs has you covered. Please contact Purkay Labs for a custom quote.
Real Life Applications
In April 2019, Purkay Labs conducted an on-site assessment of a newly commissioned enterprise Data Center. During this assessment, the team deployed 24 AUDIT-BUDDY stands every 4.5 feet. Each stand collected temperature and humidity data every minute for 10 hours, as the Data Center operators and Commissioning Engineers shut down different CRAC units to study the effect on the data hall environment. The images below show the environmental impact when all CRAC units were turned off, and then re-started.
The Room Heat Map can be used to characterize any facilities.
+ What is the Room Heat Map?
The Room Heat Map is a horizontal (bird’s eye) view of the heat distribution across the room. Use to characterize and validate how the room is operating. Purkay Labs offers two types of map: Static Room Heat Map and a Dynamic Room Heat Map.
+ What are the different types of heat maps?
There are three types of heat maps- dynamic horizontal map, static horizontal map, or vertical heat maps.
+ Is this a CFD?
The Room Heat is uses real data, collected with our AUDIT-BUDDY systems. It is a great way to validate a CFD that simulates room conditions.
+ How do I create the Room Heat Map?
Users can use the AUDIT-BUDDY system to gather information and send the data set to the Purkay Labs team to create the room heat map. Alternatively, Purkay Labs is able to come on site to do an assessment.
+ What is the cost of the Room Heat Map?
The price of the Room Heat Map depends on several variables: size, fidelity of data, and time frame. Please contact us for a customized quote.
