Remote Power and Environment Monitoring plus Consolidated iPDU Management
Switched and Managed rack power distribution unit (PDU) bars are essential to monitoring power distribution and critical environmental conditions, such as temperature and humidity in server cabinets.
Many PDUs are accessible via TCP/IP, making it possible to consolidate an unlimited number of systems under a centralised power management and environment monitoring solution.
Switched or intelligent power distribution units (iPDUs) are therefore very often used in large and fast-growing data centre environments. These iPDU systems are generally already equipped with several security and safety features, such as overload protection, circuit breakers for single or grouped power outlets, threshold settings, and access control.
Additional security, monitoring, and management functions are available when the managed PDUs are used in conjunction with specific power management software or corresponding web applications.
