Siemon, the global infrastructure specialist, has introduced a new line of intelligent power distribution units (PDUs). With the ability to distribute power to critical network equipment while providing real-time monitoring, the new intelligent PDUs are ideal for reducing power consumption and maximizing uptime in the data center.
Siemon intelligent PDUs are available with varying degrees of monitoring and control to meet specific customer needs and preferences, including metered, monitored, smart, switched and fully managed PDUs for everything from simple device-level monitoring to full outlet-level monitoring, control and switching.
With a robust, data-center quality construction, the new PDUs offer superior reliability and powerful built-in capabilities to support various sensors that monitor critical cabinet parameters like temperature, airflow and humidity. Siemon’s intelligent PDUs can be used as standalone units that are easily accessed through an intuitive web browser, or they can interface with third-party software through common open networking protocols. The easy-to-read LCD display on each networked PDU can be fully customized through the web browser for local cabinet-level viewing.
“With data center energy and downtime costs at an all-time high, the ability of intelligent PDUs to monitor and control power is vital for optimizing efficiency and identifying potential problems,” says Robert Carlson, vice president of global marketing at Siemon. “Data center managers can easily view the status and track ongoing performance of PDUs and their devices to fully understand usage. With this vital information, they can identify high power or erratic power consumption, insufficient cooling areas and underutilized equipment, which allow them to make informed decisions and take the proper steps to reduce power consumption and quickly resolve problems to ensure uptime.”
Siemon intelligent PDUs versions allow them to be mounted horizontally in a standard EIA 19-inch configuration or vertically in zero-U applications. They are available with NEMA or IEC plug interfaces and with single- or three-phase voltage. Various available cord lengths offer added flexibility, and reliability is assured with comprehensive test data provided with each unit.
