The growing complexity of IT environments, from wiring closets and server rooms to data centres of all sizes, has increased the need for reliable power distribution to the rack level. Eliminating data centre power management issues is essential for IT and Facilities managers to maintain system availability of increasing higher density equipment. Rack based Power Distribution Units (PDU’s) are an essential element in managing power capacity and functionality for critical network, server and data centre equipment.
Workspace Technology as an APC Elite partner offers the full range of APC’s standardised PDUs which are designed to increase the manageability and efficiency of your data centre. Power Distribution solutions provide real-time remote load monitoring of connected equipment and individual outlet power control for remote power recycling, manage power-up or power-down sequencing of equipment. IT and Data Centre Managers rely on PDU alarms to warn of potential power overloads before critical IT failures occur.
Workspace Technology offers a range of single and three phase PDU options including;
Switched Rack PDU
Switched rack PDUs provide load metering combined with controlled on/off switching by individual outlets for remote power recycling, delayed power sequencing of equipment and outlet use management. These systems offer maximum flexibility for customers and are particularly useful in remote lights off operations when equipment power cycling is required.
Metered Rack PDU
Metered rack PDUs provide real-time remote monitoring of connected loads. User-defined alarms warn of potential circuit overloads before critical IT failures occur. These PDU’s ensure power overloads are avoided and enable local billing when deployed within collocation environments.
Basic Rack PDU
Basic rack PDU’s will deliver reliable power distribution with equipment and server racks. Workspace Technology can offer customised solutions to suite individual client requirements incorporating optional local LCD meters.
Metered and Intelligent PDUs can be integrated into Environmental monitoring and management systems as part of an overall data centre server room environmental, security and power monitoring strategy.
