Power Distribution

Explore Schneider Electric power distribution and transfer switch solutions for IT equipment from network closets to data centers.

Basic Rack PDUs

Basic Rack PDU provides reliable rack power distribution for server rack and network rack via a single input with multiple output receptacles and distribute power from low amperage single phase circuits to higher-power 3 phase power solutions. Having a variety of inputs and outputs allow users to adapt to varying power requirements. These PDUs provides a number of outlets to bring power to rack equipment at an affordable price.

Metered Rack PDU

Metered Rack Power Distribution Units (PDUs) provide active metering to enable energy optimization and circuit protection. User-defined alarm thresholds mitigate risk with real-time local and remote alerts to warn of potential circuit overloads. Metered Rack PDUs provide power utilization data to allow Data Center Managers to make informed decisions on load balancing and right sizing IT environments to lower total cost of ownership. Users can access and configure Metered Rack PDUs through https/http, SNMPV1/V2/V3. Metered Rack PDUs include a temperature/humidity sensor port to monitor the environment.

Switched Rack PDU

Switched Rack Power Distribution Units (PDUs) enable advanced, user-customizable power management and remote monitoring. Remote outlet level controls allow power on/off functionality for power cycling to remotely reboot equipment and restrict unauthorized use of individual outlets. Current metering provides real-time remote monitoring of connected loads with user-defined alarms to warn of potential circuit overloads. Users can access, configure, and control Switched Rack PDU through https/http, SNMPV1/V2/V3 . Switched Rack PDU includes environmental monitoring including temp sensor and humidity sensor port to monitor the environment.

Custom Rack PDUs

Custom Rack PDUs dedicated engineering and manufacturing crew is hard at work delivering customized or completely new rack PDUs allowing data centers to streamline customization and avoid costly, unsafe field modifications. 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.

Rack PDU Accessories

Rack PDU Accessories contain bracket kits specifically designed to mount many of the  vertical Rack Power Distribution Units (PDUs) into third party racks or enclosures as well as a cord retention bracket to help retain power cord connection to mounted Rack PDUs. Specially designated SKUs in the Basic, Metered, and Switched Rack PDUs can utilize these bracket kits. See features list to see if your Rack PDU is compatible with these mounting brackets. See model names for rack vendor compatibility.
