Eaton Power Distribution Unit (PDU)
Provides reliable data center power distribution for both raised and non-raised floor applications

Eaton PDU

Eaton Power Distribution Unit (PDU)
Power Distribution Unit (PDU)

Overview:

The Eaton PDU provides reliable data center power distribution for both raised and non-raised floor applications. To deliver effective power management and monitoring, the Eaton PDU incorporates the Eaton Energy Management System, optimizing both utilization and availability down to the branch circuit level. The optional Power Xpert Gateway PDP Card provides web-enabled, real-time monitoring for power quality status and fast response to power-related events.

To ensure the high performance required for today's data centers, this Eaton-designed and manufactured PDU delivers maximum flexibility in an integrated, factory-tested package:

Features & Benefits:

  • Integrated isolation, monitoring, distribution and a wide array of options
  • Scalable architecture and space-saving design
  • Comprehensive monitoring and connectivity options
  • Unparalleled ease of use through front-access only design, top and bottom cable access, and spacious wire-ways

Front Access Only:

The front access Power Distribution Unit (PDU) builds on Eaton's strong portfolio of three-phase power distribution. The front access PDU increases the flexibility of the product line and allows for placement in space constrained applications such as against the wall or a corner install. The front access PDU offers ratings from 50 to 300 kVA and K13 and K20 transformers, including TP-1 efficiency. Included Energy Management System (EMS) offers cost effective intelligence to manage load profiling.

Easy Service and Setup

Reduce installation time and save on startup costs

  • Optional IR scan windows allow for true front access maintenance/inspection
  • Bottom and top entry/exit
  • Top only cable entry/exit provides high efficiency power distribution to non-raised floor environments and retains the bottom exit for easy expansion and relocation
  • Can be installed close to the wall to optimize floor space
  • Easily removable side and rear covers with captive hardware
  • Front access control panel for all standard communication expansion and maintenance
  • Backed by Eaton's extensive network of over 240 field technicans for fast reliable service
  • True front only design for operation and access

Monitoring and Connectivity

To understand your power profile

  • Eaton's Energy Management System (EMS) provides state-of-the-art monitoring and alarming provisions
  • PXGX PDP communication card allows for daisy chaining multiple PDUs together, reducing individual network drops to your power equipment
  • Monitor the PDU from any computer without software through the integrated web interface, or easily integrate into existing building management systems or Eaton's Power Xpert Software
