Eaton Delivers Advanced Configurability for Data Center and IT Professionals with High Density Rack Power Distribution Unit

January 23, 2019

 

Power management company Eaton today announced the North American launch of its High Density rack power distribution unit (PDU) platform. Building on the best-in-class power distribution capabilities of Eaton’s ePDU G3 technology, the High Density rack PDU offers advanced configurability and serves as an ideal solution for environments in which high power density is essential.

“From multi-tenant and colocation data centers to large enterprise facilities, the shift toward hyperconverged infrastructure and multi-cloud environments has forced companies to rethink their power distribution requirements to keep up with the pace of change,” said Jeff Kennedy, manager, rack PDU product and operations, Eaton. “Our High Density rack PDU platform was designed with data center customers in mind, equipping them with a flexible and configurable solution that allows them to optimize operations and reduce risk as power demands grow.”

Eaton’s High Density rack PDU offers improved outlet counts and the addition of 11 color options for easy identification of A/B power feeds. Providing 11 different outlet module options, the High Density rack PDU allows configuration for up to 54 outlets per PDU and unlocks over 20,000 configurable options for users. Alternative phase outlets simplify load balancing and improve airflow by putting outlets where they are needed, reducing the potential for tripped breakers.

Additional benefits and features of the High Density rack PDU include:

  • Improved cord entry position, reducing interference in racks and potential hazards by configuring the input cord for front or end entry
  • The ability to choose between selectable cable lengths and 21 input plug options, including IEC, NEMA, locking and hardwired
  • Bus bar design to implement more outlets in less space and improve reliability
  • Low profile circuit breakers, enabling full rack unit access and bolstering airflow management
  • Patented grip outlet to secure standard power cords, plus integrated support for P-Lock locking plugs
  • Improved circuit protection for high fault current applications with options for circuit breakers and fuse protection

Eaton’s High Density rack PDU is currently available in a managed version, providing individual outlet switching and outlet metering.
