The need for Smart (PDUs) Power Distribution Units.

Mon, 23 Nov 2015

Power Distribution Units (PDUs) maybe the last link in the power chain, but that does not make them any less important. As a matter of fact it may just make them the most important link in the chain.

As computer/data center environments become more critical the need for control and reliability increases. Selecting the right PDU can provide you with the insight necessary to avoid costly shut downs of IT equipment.

The driving factors for any piece of equipment going into the Data Center must address the IT challenges of today. The top five would be infrastructure management, heat density, availability, energy efficiency and power density. On top of dealing with these issues it must also be able to support advanced monitoring and control.

This is where the MPH2 series from Emerson Power shines. Not only is the MPH2 is the most intelligent, high-availability line of managed rack PDUs. It offers remote monitoring and control capabilities as well as environmental input options, with multiple power input selections and output configurations.
