Reliable power for network devices and servers is a vital part in ensuring uptime in any data centre. IT equipment in cabinets with single power supplies, can now be safely provided with power from two different sources via a fully customisable PDU strip with an integrated Micro Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS). The solution, which will be show for the first time at DCW on the Daxten stand D701, consists of two independent rack PDUs that are interconnected via cables. One unit contains, in addition to its regular power outlets, an integrated ATS, which provides three always on outlets for use by single power devices. In the event that incoming power is interrupted or if over or under voltage is detected, the power source will be switched within 9 to 11 milliseconds from PDU A to PDU B, preventing downtime by keeping vital IT equipment up and running.

Another unique feature is that because of the PDU interconnection the ATS is always on so the solution is able to monitor and alert via GUI, DCIM or BMS application all the time – even if power outages occur.  

IT and DC professionals gain significant advantage from adding fail-safe power to existing single power IT devices (switches etc) and to the complete rack IT equipment using a fully customisable PDU solution. The solution gives them a free choice in terms of power design, number of outlets, monitoring capabilities, colours, mounting options and many more features to perfectly fit to their individual DC environments.
