Basic PDU

Sometimes, you just don’t need all the bells and whistles of an HDOT Smart POPS PDUs. Maybe your needs are much simpler. In that case, we’ve got your covered. When your greatest concern is delivering reliable, consistent power, the Basic PDU family from Server Technology offers a dependable everyday solution for your data center. With branch circuit protection, these PDUs from Server Technology meet UL and IEC data center requirements. Optional flexible mounting and color identification features are available.

Metered PDU

Auto-flip current displays help prevent overloads and simplify three-phase load balancing in high density cabinets, while an optional flexible mounting ensures allows you to mount the PDU in standard or custom brackets.

If you’re looking for reliable power distribution for all the devices located in your equipment cabinet, Server Technology’s metered PDUs might be the perfect, affordable solution. Our metered PDUs are available in single-phase 110-120V or 208-240V or 3-Phase power distribution with 20A, 30A, 50A, or 60A options.

Smart PDU

Easy to use and access, Smart PDUs from Server Technology offer true RMS input current monitors on easy-to-view LED via network or serial connection. These PDUs feature branch circuit protection and are available in a variety of voltages, amperages. Available in single- and three-phase.

Our Smart PDUs are guaranteed secure and feature external authentication and authorization support, while SNMP traps provide automated alerts surrounding each outlet’s power and environmental conditions. Optional temperature and humidity probes, with 10 ft. cords, offer flexibility in terms of sensor placement.

Switched PDU

With the ability to turn on, off or reboot outlets individually or as a group, Switched PDUs from Server Technology also feature outlet lock-out, power-up sequencing to reduce power-up inrushes and optional smart load shedding.

Not only do Server Technology’s Switched PDUs feature Smart PDU abilities for network access to power and environmental information, but these rack PDUs also give outlet control for reboot of locked-up devices as well as power-up sequencing.

PIPS® Smart & Switched PDU Per Inlet Power Sensing PDUs

The best infeed power measurement technology on the market for data center rack-level power monitoring. PIPS technology replaces power monitoring at the RPP (Remote Power Panel) in data centers with higher accuracy and lower cost monitoring of each power circuit attached to a PDU. This feature enhances equipped Smart, Switched, and POPS PDUs with the most accurate and extensive metrics on the market. Expect the same quality and functionality on current intelligent PDUs, but with an increased level of information to help you make the critical decisions regarding your facility.

PIPS Features

  • Provide power monitoring per inlet/infeed.
  • Power information per infeed includes current, voltage, power, apparent power, crest factor, reactance, power factor and accumulated energy.
  • Accessed through either a secure network or serial connection.
  • A secure integral web interface provides a simple and easy way to monitor the PDU.
  • Configuration choices include: SNMP traps, email alerts, grouping, and all security and communication settings.
