Chicago, IL, United States, 2014/03/04 - Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, has introduced eight 3-phase switched Power Distribution Units (PDUs) in both hardwire and plug-in options that provide up to 28.8kW capacity - TrippLite.com.
These new PDUs support 415V 3-phase input to the rack, a highly efficient means of power distribution which yields three 240V single-phase outputs for IT loads. This 415V power design has been shown to reduce capital costs as well as inefficient power transformations, increasing power data center efficiency and reducing operating expenses.
The new 3-Phase Switched PDUs feature a highly accurate +/-1% billing-grade current monitoring and recording ability for each output phase, breakered load bank and individual outlet. PDU output current consumption can be displayed in amps locally via visual meter or remotely via web/network interface to warn of potential overloads, making these PDUs ideal for critical IT equipment in densely packed rack applications.
Key Features and Benefits:
• Switched 3-Phase 415/400/380V input and 240/230/220V output PDUs in 17.3kW to 28.8kW output capacities;
• Support 415V input, allowing IT equipment to operate more efficiently;
• Up to 30 switched C13 or C19 outlets in a space-saving 0U vertical form factor;
• Support for outlet-level power-on, power-off, load shedding and reboot sequences on real-time or programmable basis;
• Support toolless mounting for easy installation;
• Included Plug-lock inserts keep C14 and C20 power cords solidly connected to PDU outlets.
“Data center design is constantly evolving and there is a definite need to meet the power demands of high density data centers in the most efficient manner possible,” said Rich Feldhaus, Tripp Lite Product Manager. “With 415A power now growing in the Americas, Tripp Lite’s newest Switched PDU models meet this challenge and expand our broad offering of standard, in-stock items.”
