NetShelter Switched Rack PDUs
  • Features

    Switched Rack PDUs enable advanced, customizable power control and active monitoring for datacenter and edge environments. Remote outlet level control allows on/off power cycling to remotely reboot equipment and restrict unauthorized use of individual outlets to reduce downtime. Outlet power sequencing and grouping allow users to specify the order of device power up or down to avoid circuit overload due to inrush current and/or load shed to conserve energy. Power metering provides real-time remote monitoring of connected loads with alarms to warn of potential overloads. Users can access, configure, and control Switched Rack PDUs through secure Web or SNMP and are fully compatible with EcoStruxure IT. New 9000 series Switched Rack PDUs include Gigabit ethernet, 1% Metering accuracy, 60C Operating temperature (select models) with new C13/C15 and C19/C21 hybrid outlets, option for WiFi connectivity, ability to share 1 network port across 32 PDUs, and enhanced cybersecurity.

    Benefits

    Adaptability
    • Wide range of input and output connections - Product family includes a variety of input and output connections to distribute 120V, 208V, or 230V power to multiple outlets. Having a variety of inputs and outputs allow users to adapt to varying power requirements. APC offers units that bring up to 14.4kW using a single branch whip.
    • Rack-Mountable - Includes horizontal, vertical, and toolless-mount varieties. Puts power where it is needed most - in the racks near the equipment.
    • Single input power source - Supply power from one branch whip to multiple pieces of equipment, conveniently powering rack-mount equipment. Saves time and money during installation by using one branch whip and standard connections.
    Agility
    • Flash Upgradeable - Quickly and easily upgrade firmware via network download for future product enhancements. Eliminates the need to replace products already installed in the field when new features are released. (Note: Networked units only)
    • Wireless Connectivity - Compatible with the optional APC USB WiFi Device for cableless connectivity over WiFi that speeds deployment and simplifies moves, adds, and changes (9000 series PDUs only).
    Availability
    • 60C Operating Temperature - 9000 series PDUs provide the ability to operate in a maximum ambient air temperature of 60C (140F) at full load ensuring reliability and availability even in today's high density deployments. Other models allow up to 45C (113F).
    • C13/C15 and C19/C21 Hybrid Outlets - Available on select 9000 series PDUs only, Industry 1st hybrid outlets allow 60C operating temperature at full load, are fully compatible with standard C14 and C20 power cords, and are future proofed for implementation of higher temperature rated devices requiring C16 and C21 power cords.
    • Hydraulic Magnetic Circuit Breakers - Provide increased availability by maintaining trip current over a wide temperature range.
    • High Retention Outlets - With no special power cords required, high retention outlets provide up to twice the holding force to reduce risk of accidental disconnect on 9000 series PDUs.
    • Field-replaceable NMC - Integrated Network Management Card/Display Module can be replaced in the field to minimize downtime disruption in the unlikely event of a failure.
    Manageability
    • Network Management Capabilities - Full-featured network management interfaces that provide standards-based management via Web, SNMP, and Telnet. Allows users to access, configure, and manage rack PDUs from remote locations to save valuable time. Associated with this feature is the ability to quickly and easily upgrade the firmware via network download to installed units for future product enhancements.
    • Remote Individual Outlet Control - Remotely manage outlets so users can turn outlets off that are not in use (prevent overloads) or recycle power to locked-up equipment (minimize costly downtime and avoid travel time to equipment).
    • Alarm Thresholds - Define alarm thresholds in order to avoid overloaded circuits. Network and visual alarms inform the user of possible problems.
    • Multi-tier user access - Supports up to four access levels - Administrator, Device User, Read-Only User and Network-only User - with user name and password requirements.
    • Network Port Sharing - Connect and manage multiple PDUs from one IP address to simplify and speed deployment while saving the cost required in having a dedicated network connection for each PDU. Manage up to 32 PDUs with 9000 series and up to 4 PDUs with 8000 series.
    • Outlet Power Sequencing - Allows users to configure the sequence in which power is turned on or off for each outlet. This helps avoid in-rushes at start-up, which can cause overloaded circuits and dropped loads. Sequencing also allows users to predetermine which piece of equipment is turned on first so other equipment dependant on that unit will function properly.
    • Alarm Thresholds - Define alarm thresholds in order to avoid overloaded circuits. Network and visual alarms inform the user of possible problems.
    • Remote Management Capabilities - Full-featured network management interfaces that provide standards-based management via Web, SNMP, and Telnet. Allows users to access, configure, and manage units from remote locations to save valuable time. Associated with this feature is the ability to quickly and easily upgrade the firmware via network download to installed units for future product enhancements.
    • 1% Metering Accuracy - Providing the same level of accuracy as a utility company meter by adhering to IEC 62053-21 class 1, 1% metering accuracy provides peace of mind to use these PDUs to bill based on power usage. In addition, the higher level of accuracy ensures the most precise measures for capacity planning and threshold alarm monitoring. Available on 9000 series PDUs.
    • Enhanced Cybersecurity - 9000 series PDUs include APC Network Management card with security features including secured interfaces and a modified password policy providing peace of mind.
    • EcoStruxure IT Ready - Seamless integration of one or many PDUs including alerts and control with EcoStruxure IT. Allows IT and data center professionals to monitor and manage all of their critical IT infrastructure on-premise, in the cloud, and at the edge from anywhere.
    • Gigabit Ethernet Connectivity - 9000 series PDUs provide Gigabit Ethernet to enhance and standardize network connectivity across all assets in the data center. All other models provide 10/100 ethernet connectivity.
    • Outlet Level Grouping - Outlet power sequencing can be configured to group any combination of outlets to power up or down together providing flexibility.
    • Temperature/Humidity Monitoring Port - 8000 and 9000 series rack PDUs provide ability to monitor rack level temperature and humidity in conjunction with option temperature/humidity sensor.
