Power distribution unit
Finalist in Electrical Distribution in Consulting-Specifying Engineer's 2011 Product of the Year competition
The HP intelligent power distribution unit (iPDU) has a modular core and stick design to allow remote power monitoring and control in a data center. Remote management in the iPDU core allows monitoring of current, voltage, wattage, and power that is 99% accurate across six International Electrical Commission C19 outlets. It is mountable in 1U or 0U spaces to save rack space. Six load segment breakers prevent a problem in one segment from causing a power outage on the entire iPDU. The unit communicates with a power supply unit for auto-discovery of the server, redundant PSUs, and iPDUs.
