10 Advantages of Emerson's Smart Rack PDUs

In the world of power management selecting the right product can sometimes prove to be difficult, but in the PDU market place the choice has never been simpler to make.

Emerson Network Power’s MPH2 is the most intelligent, high-availability line of managed rack PDUs. They offer remote monitoring and control capabilities as well as environmental input options, with multiple power input selections and output configurations along with best in class cost and time saving features.


10 Advantages of the MPH2 PDU Series from Emerson

  1. Lowest PDU power consumption in the industry of all switched rack PDU’s and they feature bi-stable relays which are the most energy efficient in the market.
  2. They leverage the Mass configuration tool for firmware upgrades and alarm management which allows the user to save time by changing the configuration of multiple units at one time.
  3. MPH2s have one of the highest temperature ratings in the market. Their ceiling 60 degrees Celsius will allow you to run higher temperatures in the rack in order to optimize cooling and thermal systems without impacting hardware fans or power systems.
  4. Accuracy on the MPH2 PDU is unparalleled +/- 1% which is great for billing third parties. Most other product offerings only have a +/- factor of 3-5%
  5. Emerson’s PDUs can be daisy chained through the BD monitor and be controlled by one IP address and if used with the UMG up to 160 PDUs can be controlled by one IP. This is great if you pay for every IP used in a Colocation environment.
  6. Features locking receptacles for C19 and C13 and can also take the standard cables as well and works with locking sleeves.
  7. The PDUs have low profile circuit breakers which are great when you need to swap out hardware in a rack. This helps with the prevention of nuisance breaker tripping.
  8. Comprehensive alarming including notification of overloaded branch circuits allows for pro-active environment for maintaining critical systems with threshold and alarm set-points.
  9. They can be pre-packaged and pre-configured in the rack or cabinet at the factory which speeds up site installation and supports Emerson’s new focus of “Just make it Easy.”
  10. Great inventory. Emerson’s operations are based in the US and they have been expanding their inventory levels and will have approximately 1300 different SKUs in stock by the end of July. They also have Canadian warehouses that will allow for quick and easy site delivery.

These features, combined with Emerson’s superior support, software monitoring, service offerings, and feet on the street make the choice of PDUs easy to make.
