Rack PDU (Power Distribution Units)
It is rare to have a rack discussion
without also talking about the rack PDU.
According to Data Center Users’ Group™
findings, the average power consumption
in the Enterprise Data Center is now
approximately 8kW per rack, with
projections to grow to 10kW per rack by
2012. In the Small to Medium Business
space, (SMB) the average today is 6kW per
rack. Couple this increased power density
with various monitoring and control
needs, and the issue of proper PDU
selection becomes critical to effective
Data Center infrastructure deployment.
The Emerson Network Power family
of rack PDU features varying levels of
monitoring and control. These PDUs offer
choices of input phase, input/output
ampacity and input/output voltage to
provide you with the best solution for
the application you are facing today, or
foresee in the future.
