Packet Power Smart Power Cables

Wire-free radio monitoring of all power parameters in the data centre at cable level

The Packet Power Smart Power cables are highly flexible and easy to install, making it possible to accurately record detailed power consumption and temperature values in the data centre and analyse and optimise energy efficiency. The unique feature of the Packt Power is that all of the measurement technology is simply integrated into the power cables. Once they are connected to the IT peripherals (PDUs, servers, serial devices and many more), they automatically begin recording all electricity parameters (volts, amperes, watts, alternating current consumption, power factor, consumption peaks, etc.) and temperature values. The data recorded for every cable can be merged via a wireless network and routed to a wide range of existing or new power monitoring systems for processing, analysis and consolidation.

Packet Power Smart Power Cable Highlights:

  • Easy "plug & play" installation
  • Uses reliable wireless standards for consolidated recording of the consumption values
  • Power monitoring supports individual components or complete circuits
  • Compatible with Power Manager software from Packet Power and many other software user interfaces from various manufacturers
  • Precise recording of volts, amperes, watts, alternating current consumption, power factor, consumption peaks
  • Wireless communication with Power Cables in a radius of several hundred metres
  • Support for single- and three-phase electricity with 120 and 208-240V and between 10 and 100A
  • Supports all conventional IEC and NEMA connector types as well as for Hubbell, RussellStoll and others
  • The most important data is retained when power is interrupted
  • Records temperature values
