4 Versions of Power Distribution Units (PDU)

Basic

This is the basic form of PDU. There is no feedback in relation to performance available

Locally Metered

A small LCD Display fitted and when the PDU is powered up provides immediate limited power performance  such as kWh – Energy,  kW – Power, A – Current  and V – Volts

Networked Metered and Monitored

This unit is IP Managed. This allows for remote access and monitoring of equipment. There is a meter provided on the PDU which also provides local feedback. A thermostat probe is also fitted and placed inside the enclosure. The meter provides feedback in relation to temperature and humidity properties within the enclosure.

Network Metered, Monitored and Individually Switched

This system is IP Managed and allows remote monitoring of equipment. There is a meter provided on the PDU which also provides local feedback. A thermostat probe is also fitted and placed inside the enclosure. The meter provides feedback in relation to temperature and humidity properties within the enclosure. Via web browser access, operators can monitor rack mounted equipment performance to turn equipment on and off. Likewise, the facility to fault diagnose and send an email in the event a piece of equipment has failed.
