CEG PDU for data center

Greater Reliability, Advanced Functionality and an Overall Higher Standard for Rack PDUs in Mission Critical Facilities

Upsite Technologies is raising the standard of rack power distribution with the introduction of PowerLok®.  With automated soldering from line input to each receptacle, PowerLok eliminates all mechanical connections. This unique improvement makes it 270% less likely to fail than rack Power Distribution Units (PDUs) with mechanical terminations.


The Perfect Fit

At only 2.18″ wide x 2″ deep, PowerLok’s slim, vertical profile makes the PDU more agile and aesthetically pleasing within IT equipment racks while offering the greatest receptacle density and highly visible group marking. In addition, PowerLok features an input cord that is angled toward the server rack exit to improve access to the backs of servers. This allows for greater length with more receptacles over PDUs with end cords while reducing bend radius and providing a natural egress from the server cabinet.

PowerLok also features CordLok® – a patent-pending cord locking system for easy insertion, retention, and detachment of plugs into the receptacles. With no insertion resistance, it allows for insertion and removal with a single hand while offering an industry leading receptacle density that secures C13 and C19 cords. CordLok is an economically viable solution that provides peace of mind at an average cost of $1 per receptacle.
